Jennie Turner Garlington is a wearer of many hats. As a vocal champion of the environment, a mom, a former CNN producer and current PBS producer of EcoSense for Living, this beauty (and, yes, daughter of local legend Ted Turner) is adding another feather to her cap with the recent launch of Hope Unlimited, a new line of one-of-a-kind bags. Inspired largely by Native American culture, the totes are crafted using materials from Garlington’s myriad travels. The sustainability warrior originally conceived the bags as one-off gifts but decided to launch a full line, designed in partnership with her 12-year-old daughter, Hope. Here, the Atlanta native shares her hometown haunts. From $400
