Last night I was looking around for recycling ideas and I found a way to recycle those plastic grocery bags you get from the store. Instead of just throwing them away you can create things with them like you can make a more sturdy grocery bag by crocheting pieces that you cut. I didn’t cut mine in such big pieces but I did more thinner pieces but I was able to crochet a granny square (see below) to see how easy or hard it would be.
I think this is a neat idea if you are obsessed with recycling. As you can see in this image I didn’t finish the square but the amount you see is from exactly 1 plastic bag not including the handles. But I did what the woman in the YouTube video (in the first paragraph) did by looping the pieces. Since my pieces were much thinner they were also more fragile and I’m not sure how durable this square would be if I were to actually make something out of it. I’m not sure if I turned it into a grocery bag that it wouldn’t break since the pieces are thinner. If I wanted a grocery bag out of it then I’d cut the pieces in 1 inch pieces like she did just for the durability.
