About This Class

Discover how to make plarn.

(Plarn = Plastic yarn).

What can be better than a free craft supply that also helps the environment? Where you make things that you can actually use?!

Not much! So join us to begin making your own plarn. I will take you through the simple process step-by-step. Create a free craft supply with unlimited possibilities.

Keep in mind that the standard plastic bag:

  • It takes 1000 years for the standard plastic bags to break down."
  • Plastic bags don’t biodegrade, they photo-degrade breaking down into smaller and smaller toxic bits contaminating soil and waterways. They then enter the food-web when animals accidentally ingest them.
  • Less than 5 percent of US shoppers use canvas, cotton, or mesh bags, instead of the standard plastic bag.
  • Over the past ten years we have produced more plastic, than during the whole of the last century.
  • Sadly,only 1-3% of plastic bags are recycled worldwide
