The following report, prepared for the Human Development Center in Bangkok, Thailand, contains a dual prevention and cleanup approach toward curbing plastic bag pollution. The team developed a traveling puppet show and weaving demonstration to introduce over 4,000 preschoolers to the pollution and mosquito problems, and presented handcrafted looms to promote plastic bag weaving as a recycling solution. The local women's craft groups were targeted with the weaving campaign and a floor loom was presented to them.
