top 10 ways to recycle/reuse plastic bags

15 Jan

As the new year begins (can you believe it is already 2011?) I want to give you a list of ways you can recycle/repurpose/reuse all those plastic bags that pile up around the house. These are really simple ideas, but very effective in greening up your life and making your eco-friendly impact on the world. Believe me, you will feel so much better if you can find a way to use a plastic bag again rather than simply tossing it in the trash can.

  1. Trash can liner—rather than purchasing plastic bags
  2. Laundry bag—when traveling or camping
  3. Shoe bag—to protect your clothing from your shoes in your suitcase
  4. Doggy doo bag—clean up after your dog on a walk
  5. Dirty Diaper bag—when away from home use for a soiled diaper (disposable or cloth)
  6. Mailing packages—use plastic bags as filler or cushioning in packages
  7. Gift Wrap—wrap gifts in colored plastic bags
  8. Trash bag—in your car when traveling
  9. Recycle—bring them to a local store that offers recycling
  10. Donate—to Bags2Bags or other businesses that repurpose them into useful items
NOTE: contact me if you’re interested in donating plastic bags. Thanks!
