When I go shopping for bedding items, I am always amazed at the vast amount of products that are available. There are sheets, comforters, quilts, and pillows of every size and shape. Most of these items (excluding pillows) come in these beautifully packaged plastic bags.
My first goal in shopping is of course to get the item that represents quality and is sold at a fair price. After I have carefully selected my item walk to the checkout line with a spring in my step, I think: how can I reuse this bag?
I am a conscientious consumer that does try to do something “green” to help the environment. By reusing this bag, I am helping reduce waste and make my house more organized. I love dual purpose items – don’t you?
The bag will either house my child’s crafting items from pencils, markers, construction paper, glitter, glue, etc. Or it will be used to keep her winter shoes in since now it’s time to break out the sandals and flip flops. Or even better…it can hold all my precious 1980’s vinyl records!
The packaging bag has a variety of potential uses for me and my family. Remember to reuse and recycle.
