[Source: MADE Art Boutique] – Why should we be concerned with single-use non-biodegradable disposal plastic bags? A 1,000-mile wide collection of discarded plastics, mostly blown from land, currently floats in the ocean in the North Pacific Subtropical Gyre. This island of discarded plastics is estimately to weigh over 18 million tons.

Thirteen local artists are recycling used plastic bags and creating tote bags in a variety of sizes, shapes, and colors. None will end up in the North Pacific Subtropical Gyre.
