Dodge Co. Woman Makes Plarn Bags for Operation Christmas Child

Dodge Co. Woman Makes Plarn Bags for Operation Christmas Child

Marilynn Sanders sits at her kitchen table a creation of red and white in front of her and a plastic crochet needle in her hand. She is doing a single crochet stitch, with her ball of yarn laying on the table beside her.

Her dogs, Katie and Bo, lay on the floor underneath th kitchen table.

Upon closer inspection of the bag that Sanders is crocheting, a revelation hits the onlooker. The yarn isn't yarn – well, not the yarn that one stereotypically would expect to see someone crocheting from.

Sanders' ball of yarn is made of plastic – recycled plastic shopping bags. This one from Target. This yarn is called plarn, and is made out of cutting strips from recycled shopping bags and garbage bags.
