Like many, I have a moral opposition to the plastic bags that are handed out like it ain’t no thing by every store in these United States.

They drive me nuts.

Finding ways to re-use them is crucial. Better than recycling, which melts them down (using energy) to create other plastic things (using energy).

So--using them as pooper scoopers, good. Plarn (plastic-yarn), even better.

I give you, then, Plastique.

Pattern includes instructions for making the plarn for this bag. You’ll also need bag handles, either recycled from an old bag or from a craft store.
