 Not sure if this goes here, but I'm not sure where to put it.

 Is anyone else a little concerned with the new fad in turning plastic bags into clothes, bags, etc? It seems a lot of the buzz I'm hearing is people being excited to get new plastic bags rather than use cloth reusable ones. Now, I understand that the plastic bags are being converted to something more durable for long term use, but isn't it counter productive if people are now resorting back to getting new bags?

More plastic bags being consumed = more plastic bags being made = sad Earth

First of all, this probably goes in a discussion thread, maybe craftster chit-chat.  You can contact a mod and they will move it for you.

Second, I agree that if people are getting new bags to make things out of, it defeats the purpose of recycling.  All of the plastic bag art that I have done has been from people bringing me their plastic bags that they were going to throw away.  I have known people to go to certain stores and ask for bags, so they can do crafts with them, which I think is so far wrong, it sucks.
