I am going nuts with the explosion of plastic bags under my sink. With my weekly trips to the store the bags just seem to add up. I do not want to throw them away because I know they can be recycled. Unfortunately our curbside recycling will not take them because they get caught in the machinery. Our school used to recycle these bags for school credit, but they have dropped that program.
So what to do with all those bags?
Then start using re-useable bags. I got the fabulous bag below at IKEA. But you can find them anywhere.
