Museum of the Plastic Bag saves item banned from shops

Most see the disappearance of the plastic bag as a good news story from last year. Our beaches don’t miss them. Neither do the turtles, who mistook them for jellyfish.

However as the era of the plastic bag wraps up, there’s one museum curator who viewed the disappearance of this once ubiquitous item with mixed emotion.

The Plastic Bag Museum is Glasgow’s newest institution preserving old tat. It describes itself imaginatively as “a museum solely dedicated to bags made of plastic” and its collections are focused on polymer sacs circa 1970 to present day.
