If you have a bunch of plastic bags lying around, upcycle them into a hammock chair [1]! All you need to make one is time (you’ll need to braid each plastic bag to make it sturdy), about 500 plastic bags, two¬†spring link carabiners and rope.¬†The hammock chair has been tested to hold about 220 pounds.
