Bag snaggers are patented poles that get plastic bags from trees. Bag snaggers can also describe the person doing the snagging, like Barry Elmore, the Manhattan Zone Gardener at the New York Restoration Project. In this podcast, I follow Elmore as he beautifies New York City, and I even give bag snagging a try.
