The plan is to study the plastic bag problem in India, to find groups of people interested in learning how to crochet with plastic bags, and to turn the plastic bag crochet idea into a larger project (one that involves creating an online site for selling Indian made recycled plastic bag items and sending the money back to these communities). I will also be highlighting any Indian organizations and community groups aimed at recycling plastic or promoting self sufficiency through the sale of local handicrafts.
Do you know of any community groups I should interview while I’m there? Do you live/work in India and want to organize a plastic bag workshop with me? Have you started a similar project in another part of the world? I’d love to hear from you! Please contact me and let me know your thoughts!
