About Dot's Recycling!: Welcome! Here you can find all sorts of useful items for your home, for yourself or to give as gifts. What better way to celebrate nature than to rescue plastic grocery bags from their destiny in a wasteful landfill -- they can be recycled into PLARN and remade into stylish totes and bags.
Karen Hoyer has been performing as Dot for years but she's a not-so-secret crafter who grew up with her dad's philosophy of "this'll come in handy someday..." Recycling old jeans into purses, blankets, pillows, skirts, kid's toys and even desk accessories was the beginning. Next came a fascination with PLARN -- yarn made of recycled plastic bags crocheted into baskets, bags & lunch bags. Fabric, yarn, wire, cardboard, who knows what else she'll find to transform thru recycling. See more about her performing, teaching, costume construction & art work at KarenHoyer.com
