That statistic she mentioned is scary, and to think how many bags are quickly just thrown into the trash after they have been used to hold groceries.

I had a 70 year old grandma come into my classroom (high school) and show the students how to do this over earth week! Even the guys had fun!

That is awesome! I have a stash of plastic bags from before we started using cloth, and I was going to drop them at the grocery store to recycle. Now I think I'm going to use them to knit something.

That is a great idea! We usually recycle them at home as garbage bags, but we still have a lot left over. This is something I'm going to share with my kids. thanks for posting the link

That is amazingly cool- I want to learn to do that and make those for everyone's presents! How neat.

I've done this before but never made the "plarn" so efficiently. This is really helpful; I'm re-inspired. It's really quick and easy to make coasters like this and I think they really look fun and eclectic. Now, if I thought my family/friends would appreciate this kind of stuff for gifts I'd be really excited but I'm not sure they're there yet....
