Moroccans are the second largest consumers of plastic bags, which are casually discarded and left to litter the pristine environment. This heartwarming mini-documentary tells the story of women in a remote northern Moroccan valley who see the scourge of plastic bags as an opportunity to employ their traditional weaving expertise. They have organized themselves into a collective that both cleans up the countryside and wins them financial security and independence, all thanks to their beautifully crafted bags and decorative items.
