1. The Plastic Bag Chandelier
I always hear that you can make a lamp out of absolutely anything, but I have to admit -- I never believed it. Until now.

Sit on it and spin... literally. The plastic bag chair from Ryan Frank may not be the most functional, but it's certainly the most beautiful.

3. The Plastic Bag Cushions
Cushions that are both lovely and earth-friendly! See them right here.

Don't even think about leaving out your tootsies. Plastic bag shoes? You betcha!
