When knitted up the plastic bags are stronger made into a different item.

I have made these for years! There very easy and fast to make. I have also made 4ft x 4ft squares for my husband when he works on our car, and I keep one in the trunk, keeps things from sliding around. I'm making a larger one now to use when we go camping as a patio mat. There much easier than the ground to kneal down on, and if they get beyond cleaning with soap and water, just toss em! They last forever, I only remember tossing 1 or 2 in the past 20 years!

I have NEVER seen a standard grocery bag "disintegrate" ever. Not too many stores spring for "compostable" bags, which are made out of plastics derived from corn fibers, most often. I think this is a great idea to reuse bags that are cluttering up our oceans, animals and land fills. If you have any questions about the bags falling apart, simply ask your grocery store what brand they use. Research is a fun way to spend time! :)

Many grocery bags disintegrate after a few months. I think this is a pretty risky idea.
