After you properly clean and rinse plastic grocery bags, you can use them as often as you’d like! You can feel good knowing that you are helping both the planet and your own wallet. Continue reading to learn six different ways you can reuse these plastic bags…
Use as storage for recyclables. Throughout the week, place your bottles and cans in used plastic bags. This will make it easier to store them, and you can use the same bags over and over again!
Protect your plants from bad weather. When the weather starts to cool and snow heads our way, you would typically cover your more sensitive plants with a cloth. For additional insulation, cover the cloth with a plastic bag, and tie it with a string or small rope!
Use them for grocery shopping. If you don’t already have reusable grocery totes, bring along your extra plastic bags. Keep a stash in your car so you don’t continue to collect more!
Store produce to keep it fresh for longer. Place the bag of fruits and vegetables in the refrigerator, and you’ll notice a lengthened shelf life!
Wrap fragile items for storage or mail. Plastic bags can keep things together, and provide additional padding when storing or mailing delicate items!
Use them for a garage sale. If you’re thinking about selling some of your things at the end of summer, all of those extra plastic bags will come in handy!
