Tip #4 Recycling Bags

4. Recycle plastic grocery bags; you can return them to the store, or you can use them to pack things, transport things; doubled they make good transport for books and are easy to handle. There are even companies that refine and spin these and other plastic items into materials for book bags, even clothing and shoes. Since I wrote this, colorful and useful bags with logs and designs of all types are popular in mjor grocers like Aldi, Sav A Lot, HyVee, Dominics, and in Marhalls, TJ Max, Barnes and Noble and other retailers. These are made of recyled paper, plastic, and cloth. I have several handmade dolls with long skirts that gather at the end. Plastic bags can be saved inside the doll's skirt. For those who love books, the BN bags that feature Nancy Drew, GWTW, To Kill a Mockinbird, and other books are great gifts. I use some version of these daily for books and other things I have to carry. I also recycle plastic as lunch bags, to carry things, to pack, sometimes to cushion things I wrap and put away. While we never advocate hoarding, we do advocate saving, sharing, and thiking outside the box. In my humanities class, I teach a beautiful film narrated by Max von Sydow called "The Bag." about the life of a plastic bag. It makes one think twice about throwing things into the landfill.
