New York's Plastic Bag Store stocks groceries made from single-use bags

Brooklyn artist Robin Frohardt has used old plastic bags to create foods such as tomatoes and sushi rolls for an installation in New York's Times Square. The Plastic Bag Store is an installation by Robin Frohardt and Times Square Arts designed to coincide with the plastic bag ban in New York, which went into effect on 1 March 2020. It is intended to replicate the look of a traditional grocery store by making items with single-use plastic bags the artist collected from streets of New York City. "The Plastic Bag Store is a visually rich, tactile, and humorous experience that hopefully encourages a different way of thinking about the foreverness of plastic, the permanence of the disposable, and that there is no 'away' when we throw something out," said artist Robin Frohardt. "It is my attempt to make something authentic and human from that which is mass-produced."
