From Bottles to Bags: Eco-Friendly Collection Turns Trash Into Fashion

Each bag in the Hamilton Perkins Collection is made out of about 16 discarded plastic bottles. For every 1,000 bags sold, Perkins estimates that 16,000 plastic bottles will be diverted from landfills.

Thanks Linda.....very good news indeed. However it would be better to eliminate all plastic. I often think of the one liner in the film "The Graduate"...when the man says to Ben (Dustin Hoffman) "Plastics!"...obviously meaning "it's the future". Yeah....and look what we did with it!!
