With all of the messages to “reuse,” there has become a sense of confusion about recycling. We hoard recyclable objects with the hope that we will be able to make use of them and save the planet.  The make-your-own plastic bag tent is just one way to use all those extra bags. It is great for emergencies, homeless and migrant situations, or even just a fun way to save money on a tent that will protect you from rain and provide you with your own space. Just as nomadic people all over the world and throughout history have used animal skins and other recycled materials to build their temporary spaces, we can do the same in the plastic age.
