It's a plastic bag bag
This tote is completely crocheted out of plastic bags! The name for plastic bag yarn is plarn, and there are some great tutorials around the internet on how to make it. Simply Google "Plarn" and many search results will come up. This bag took over 200 bags to make. I got the bags just from grocery and clothes shopping. :) I hope this inspires you to create one too!
