Upcycling plastic into plarn at the Destin Library in September

Special to The Log

What in plarnation is going on? It’s Sustainable September at the Destin Library. On Sept. 23 at 6 p.m., we are teaching you how to turn plastic grocery bags into plastic yarn, or “plarn.”

Plarn event

Making plarn is easy and is a great way to upcycle plastic bags into baskets, mats, and other reusable items. Reuse your today so you don’t have to reduce your tomorrow. All the materials needed for this craft will be provided, however participants are encouraged to bring in their own plastic bags from home to exchange for a tote bag while supplies last.
