Are you ready to wear Plastic?

There is an article that follows the process it takes to turn a bottle into
fabric, from the chipped plastic bits that resemble snow cone filling to the
fiber filaments that “feel eerily like human hair gone unwashed for so long
that it’s soft with grease.” There’s also some great photos, and surprising
facts like it takes just 10 plastic bottles to make a pound of fiber.

Folks are getting more creative every day.  With all the hype about the
plastic bottles being so hard on landfills, decomposing length, and
the expense, this is wonderful news.
