And now we'll tell you more about Plarny Yarn Creations~ Lynn is just getting started on Etsy, but she has tons of her work posted on her Facebook page. These amazing creations are whimsical and colorful, and made from plastic bags of all different colors! Although Lynn says the colorful bags are the hardest to come by, and she offers to meet up with anyone who has them in the area of the Eastern Shore of Maryland. They are so lightweight that you could probably send them to her for next to nothing if you'd like, as well! It's a wonderful way to get rid of the worst offenders of our environment and a great way to support upcycling. Plastic constitutes 86% of the debris in our oceans and over 1 million seabirds and marine mammals die from plastic ingestion or entanglement!
