Ball of Bags

18,000 Plastic Bags

Local students lined the lanes of the Indoor Track and Tennis facility (ITT) running track on April 19 with 18,000 plastic bags tied together, then rolled the bags into a massive ball. The students' sculpture is their way of demonstrating the over-use of plastic bags and their negative impact on the Earth's environment. They will roll their bag ball ceremoniously through Northampton, ending downtown, on Saturday, April 23, in honor of Earth Day (April 22).
