Plastic is one of the many factors contributing to ecosystem destruction. Unfortunately, in today's era environmental awareness is still very low, and people tend to be indifferent to plastic waste around them. For that, we need a hotfix to fix the problem. New plastic bags can start to decompose for at least 20 years in the soil. If a plastic bag is in water, it will be even more difficult to decompose. (As’ari dkk, 2022). The purpose of this PKM is to increase the creativity of handicrafts in PKK cadres by utilizing used plastic bags waste to make various types of beautiful flowers that have economic and selling value. The method used is lecturing, socializing, and demonstrating. This PKM activity was held on Thursday, May 12, 2022 in Kedaton village. The result of this PKM activity is that PKK women can make handicraft products in the form of beautiful flowers from used plastic bag waste that has economic and selling value.
