Plastic Bag Feeder

Plastic Bag Feeder

This community plastic bag dispenser on the streets in Williamsburg made me smile. The design is kind of a cross between a bird feeder and those “Take a Penny, Leave a Penny” dishes often found at checkouts. It allows people to leave a bag they no longer have a need for, and gives bags to those who might need one in a pinch (as a dog owner, I can say this would’ve come in handy a few times). Unlike MSLK’s own Urban Tumbleweeds, it’s not necessarily meant to bring attention to our over-consumption of  plastic bags, but helps give them a second life.
