Plarn is a yarn that can be made out of plastic grocery bags. You can use it to make rugs, placemats, coasters, bags, and much more. It can be crocheted, knitted or woven to create many unique projects and it gives new life to a used shopping bag.
Most retail stores that collect used plastic bags for recycling will let you have as many bags as you want from their collection stations if you speak to a store manager, so there's no need to intentionally have your purchases bagged in plastic instead of a trusty, reusable shopping bag.
