WFMW: Reuse Plastic Grocery Bags in the Car
Posted by infinitygoods on September 25, 2007
I always have on hand some plastic grocery bags in my car. Over the years I have reused them in all sorts of ways.
Garbage gets tossed quickly and easily instead of being scattered throughout the car. When baby gets car sick, the soiled outfit goes in a plastic bag or two and the smell is contained too. No need for a Diaper Genie in the car, just use a couple plastic grocery bags until you get to the nearest garbage can.
When there’s an impromptu trip to the beach, wet bathing suits or seashells, rocks and other treasures go right in too. Car trouble or something dirty to touch, a bag becomes a plastic mitten. If a child walks into mud, the shoes and socks can go in the bag, too.
Toys, especially balls which can get very dirty, can easily be carried by the child to the park from the parking lot. The dirty balls or sandy toys won’t soil a good canvas tote bag or basket. They can be used as a temporary tossable liner as well.
I’m always finding a new use for them and it’s good for our environment to reuse. It actually saves money, energy and time to reuse before recycling.
