In cities, on roadsides, in trees – the discarded plastic bag is
everywhere, and nationwide Americans throw away some 100 billion of them

plastic bags. Volunteers in Western Massachusetts are trying to further
reduce waste by turning scrap material into reusable shopping bags – and
sharing them as an attractive and practical alternative.
