Saving up plastic bags: They aren't one use items, By Silvia Phenora

If you go to our house, and open the closet next to the door, one of the first things you will notice is a very large bag filled with rolled up plastic bags. Those are grocery bags, so called "one-time use" items. Every time we get home from shopping, the bags go in there.
Here's just a little of what you can do with saved bags:

We use them while fostering. It's great to be able to put all the litter and paper towel waste in a hanging bag to dispose of later.

Messy projects. We can have a disposable bag on hand any time.

Trying to double wrap something, like a gift.

Crafts. It's amazing what you can make out of them! Do some google searches. I've seen articles on how to make sandals(yes, shoes!) out of them!

On-the-road, compact trash bags for our Airstream Travel Trailer. Simply hang, and put all your trash in it until it's full.

Doggy bags.

And SO MUCH more! Be creative, and think of how you can go green,  and reuse!
Note: Even though plastic bags have many uses, always choose a "Green" bag at the grocery store. They're greener in the long run. This article is meant to encourage the world's people to reuse already-obtained plastic bags.

Our lack of articles ends now.
Wit summertime, shall come ES Blogging time! Stay tuned, our faithful readers. A story from Silv will be coming up very soon.
