A call for USED plastic bags from around the World!!!!
The bags in my neighbourhood are mostly white, grey, blues and greens. Occassionally I find pink, red or orange bags and these are very rare. If any readers of this blog find some interesting coloured bags I would be extremely happy to receive them. They will become part of a future crochet sea creature....... better in my studio than in a whale's tummy. Contact me by email and we can work something out.
The bags need to be USED.
There is plastic rubbish vortex spinning clockwise in the North East Pacific Ocean, just NE of Hawai'i. In the calm centre of the vortex, plastic accumulates and is now the size of Texas. Check out this great animation of the ocean currents here.
Thank you Margaret Wertheim for telling me about this.
