"Tree day" in Macedonia


"Having in mind the bad condition of the forest fund, and in particular the catastrophic forest fires which occurred last year, we have started a citizen's initiative for afforestation in the Republic of Macedonia.
The purpose of this initiative is to plant more than 2 million tree seedlings corresponding to the population of the Republic of Macedonia in a single day, on March 12, 2008. The action shall be entitled « Tree day »"
You can read more about this project here: http://www.treeday.com.mk/

My personal participation in this initiative and the green living is making a bag from plarn (plastic bag yarn). I crocheted this bag using plastic bags from the local market.

Dea--Nije tesko plesti. Na pocetku je malo cudno, ali posle naviknes. Ovaj konac se nekupuje. Napravi se od stare kese od super market. Ako zelis upute kako da napravis konac, mogu ti poslati linkove.

I've seen the way these plastic bags had been made and it is good way to reuse plastic bags. Well done! I love your creative thinking!
