Summary "Plastic bags are cheap and easy to use. But what happens when a bag breaks or is no longer needed? In Njau, Gambia, people simply dropped the bags and went on their way. One plastic bag became two. Then ten. Then a hundred. ... Something had to change. Isatou Ceesay was that change. She found a way to recycle the bags and transform her community"--Dust jacket
