    Some stores offer a plastic bag recycling program (like Maceys, Walmart and the Utah Food Bank) so check with them or your favorite grocery store to see if they participate and recycle! It’s a much better way to get rid of unwanted bags than just throwing them out.

    Have way more than we need: empty diaper boxes. Since they tape them up on the bottom I have to use scissors to break them down so I end up just chucking them into the garage and use them to organize donation items by category. Then I go to the drive thru at Goodwill last week and see that they just dump all the boxes into one huge bin! All my sorting was for naught :) I’ll try harder to break them down and put them straight into the recycling bin. Great post!

    love your blog!

    better than collecting – then trashing plastic bags – use reusable bags!! so much better for the future of our kids’ world. I keep mine in the truck of the car so they are ready for all of our shopping trips to the grocery store, Target, pharmacy, etc

    thanks for the great site!!

    I began using the reusable bags this year – slowly learning to become more green. I keep one bag in my glove compartment that actually is made to roll up for quick stops and then my larger bags are left home. The best thing is my local grocery stores will actually give me money back for each bag I use when I shop. There is always the inevitable time when plastic does get brought home and we use those for weekly bathroom trash baskets, the rest of the plastic goes to my daughters school for a recycling program to raise money for the school.

    this is so true! my plastic bags were once becoming way out of what i can handle. then one day i just threw out everything that i can’t use. sort plastic bags that i can use for each garbage can at home then place them near that garbage can. for example: bathrooms, bedrooms or kitchen. kept my favorite paper bags. after that, it was a relief. my husband doesn’t even want to touch my plastic bag sorter anymore because of how neat it is. i wish i captured a before and after picture!
