A new use for potato chip bags

 Environmental activist Eradajere Oleita of Detroit, Michigan, is creating much-needed warmth for the homeless using potato chip bags. It's brilliantly simple. By cutting, attaching and ironing used chip bags, and then lining them with plastic, she creates sleeping bags that are durable, waterproof, and EXTREMELY lightweight.

It takes about 150 used snack bags to make a single sleeping bag, and Oleita says she's trying to make 60 complete bags by early February.
