DDW Michelle Baggerman

A new strong, material from plastic bags.
What are we to do with the dozens of plastic bags accumulating in the hallway closet? Throwing them out is bad for the environment, and recycling is not as harmless as it would seem: it requires chemicals and heat. And recycling will reduce the quality of the plastic. Michelle Baggerman has succeeded in processing her used bags without heating or added chemicals and has turned them into durable but fine threads with which she has weaved a new fabric. The woven product is much stronger than the original which will considerably increase lifespan of this material that takes so long to decompose. Precious waste makes it possible to process poor-quality disposable bags and turn them into sustainable products.
