Hundreds of young women in Taiwan have been uploading pictures of themselves online wearing DIY swimsuits made from convenience store plastic bags. The homemade one-piece has taken off, with imitators from all walks of life now posting selfies modeling little plastic bag outfits.
The trend appeared to have kicked off in a Facebook group called 爆料公社. Some commenters praised the girls as environmental ambassadors drawing attention to the amount of plastic bags we consume, whereas others said they are just trying to show off their bods.
Zheng-xing, a 27-year-old nightclub owner, was one of the first fellows to uploaded a selfie wearing a Carrefour bag. He didn’t expect much from the trend, but wanted to encourage more girls to join in.
Thanks to social networking communities like this, Taiwan’s free soft porn culture is growing. Take a peek at the new Taipei ‘Easycards’ (for public transport) featuring Taiwanese schoolboys’ favourite Japanese AV star and warm-hearted charity promoter, Yui Hatano.
