The Green Cheap-Plastic Bags

Sunday, September 6, 2009

Do you find you just get too many plastic bags, but you don't want to throw them away? It's important to you to keep them out of the landfill?
I keep a good control over them- we have 4 rooms that have the smaller waste baskets in them that allow me to use them.My brother also takes my extras for his garbage and my parents have 5-6 cats, which they use the bags to tie up their business in.
If  you are accumulating too many bags here are a few ways to recycle them:
-check to see if your local recycling centre or curbside recycling will take them.
-there are alot of stores now that have containers for you to return your bags to and drop them off, or that will give you a few pennies back for the bags you bring back and have your groceries re-packed in them.
-if your a patient person, you can recycle the bags into bags, rugs,wallets, etc..
- use it as a shoe bag to carry your second set of shoes when travelling, or a wet bathing suit when going to the lake/beach/pool
-wrap them around frozen foods in your freezer to prevent freezer burn
-use as packing material when shipping your Ebay items

If you have any other uses for plastic bags, please feel free to add them in the comments section.
