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

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....
