I’ve been thinking about it for a while, and now I’m finally doing it: no plastic bags will recycled here anymore. I’m keeping them all and making them into twine, which I’ll knit, weave or crochet into large thermal blankets, hammocks or new installation pieces. I'll also take inspiration from work produce and illustrated in this previous post. I'm having a bash at 'zero waste' and I’m not recycling anymore. I’m repurposing instead!
What I’ll do with hard plastic food packaging need to be given some thought now. The house and studio meainwhile will start to fill with these specialty fashion twines. Pretty, but how I break the news to my partner is yet another matter!
