‘Plarn’ it!

Use ‘yarn’ made from recycled plastic shopping bags

Despite efforts to reduce the usage of single-use plastic bags, we’ve still got way too much plastic floating and drifting around the planet. Here’s something creative and functional that can be made with plastic shopping bags—make ‘plarn’ (plastic ‘yarn’) to use in a number of crafty ways. One nifty, eco-friendly craft idea, of course, is to crochet or knit a reusable shopping bag from your plarn. Go to www.tinyurl.com/plarnit for step-by-step instructions on making plarn.
