a plastic bag recycling box
If you are like
me, it seems as though I always have a ton of plastic bags
stashed under my sink that tend to overrun everything else
under there. And while some stores have a grocery bag recycling
program where you can return plastic bags, you still have
the problem of them being around until you take them for recycling.
You can make an
easy plastic bag recycling box, and one that you can even
keep on a kitchen counter or put in a cupboard to leave that
catchall under the sink a bit clearer.
First, you need
an empty tissue box. Then wrap the box in decorative wrapping
paper, such as paper leftover from a gift, or even plain paper
that you have your kid's decorate for you (give them only
the crayon colors that match your décor!). Or if the
tissue box you have was especially pretty, you don't even
have to wrap it.
Then, just stuff
the bags into the box. Then when it is time to recycle them,
or if you need to use one, just pull a bag out of the top
as you would a tissue.
