5 Things To Do With Plastic Bags ( Other Than Throw Them Out!)

Take two seconds and look around your house.You're looking for plastic bags, and I doubt you will have much trouble finding any. Under sinks, in closets, dressers, attics, garbage cans, cabinets, refrigerators... I think you might get where I'm going with this. Plastic bags are EVERYWHERE in almost EVERY household! Don't freak out just yet. First, stop picking up unnecessary plastic bags from the grocery store when purchasing items you can carry, or take a reusable bag for the trip. In the mean time, collect all the plastic bags you find around your house and make this stuff!

1.) Plastic bag wallets and reusable shopping bags!

                                                (Making A Seriously Legit Reusable Bag:)

2.) Knee Pads

3.)  Package Liner

4.) Covering your head to retain heat while hair dye soaks in


5.) Hand protection around harmful cleaning products ( which shouldn't be used in the first place, but just in case you "really" can't use something else...)

Got any other cool uses for plastic bags? Let me know!

  1. Informative video! Plastic bags are not biodegradable. They clog waterways, spoil the landscape, and end up in landfills where they may take many years to break down into ever smaller particles that continue to pollute the soil and water. Thanks a lot!
