15 years ago a friend gave me a bag made from plastic bags as a gift. I was intrigued and inspired as I love products that support the environment by reusing discarded materials. More than 10 years ago I asked another friend to teach me to crochet and help me find a pattern to use for the bags I wanted to create. Since that time I have made more than 1500 bags and love doing it. I like finding new plastic bags to use and have found that the best gift a friend can give me is often their recycled bags, especially unique ones. By making the bags, I have kept more than 50,000 bags out of the trash cycle and transformed them to another use. Over the years, I have added larger beach bags, cross-body bags, wine bottle bags and kitchen scrubbies to my inventory. I look forward to the day when my business can no longer exist because stores are no longer giving plastic bags away, and we have learned to take our own bags whenever we go shopping.
