What Came First? The Chicken or the Plastic Bag?

This recycled, fair trade plastic bag chicken figurine is handcrafted by disadvantaged crafters in the townships near Cape Town, South Africa.

Theses chickens and other crafts utilizing plastic bags came into being after plastic bags were banned in Cape Town. What was once a litter nightmare, is now something beautiful.

They are available for purchase here.
