When Silver of Westport closed, Susan's creativity emerged in a new venture returning to her crocheting skills, the result is: Plarns Bags By Susan. “Plarning” is an innovative ecofriendly method that recycles everyday plastic bags. For example she has used bags from Stew Leonard’s, ShopRite and newspaper sleeves to name a few. She cuts them into strips to create “Plarn”( yarn).
Plarn Bags by Susan transforms plarn into appealing and practical bags of all sizes- from mini wallets to large tote bags perfect for the beach. The bags are now available at local shows and can be seen here. The Plarn bags are not just a creative effort but also showcase recycling with style
