Nat @ CRAFT has a TON of things you can do with plastic bags, she writes -
We all know how bad plastic grocery bags are for the environment. Research suggests that 500 billion to 1 trillion plastic bags are consumed worldwide each year. The city of San Francisco will be first city in the U.S. to take a stand and ban plastic bags in large markets and pharmacies.
But what can a crafter do to help the cause? Round up the bags you do have laying around in the house or collect them from neighbors and friends to start reusing plastic bags for your next craft project. Here’s a post rounding up some of the best projects we’ve seen around. Sew ‘em up, cut them into strips for knitting or crochet — the possibilities are endless!
