    At Home Reuse Trash Bags Instead of Purchasing New
    What are some of the challenges or benefits you have experienced using reused bags instead of a bag purposely designed to hold trash?

    I love this idea! I try not to use or buy items in plastic. This is impossible in our society, everything is packaged in plastic! I have been reusing bread bags for small garbage bins. The challenge is that sometimes these small bags will not fit the garbage bin.

    The first day is going well! I planted microgreens in cut off half gallon milk cartons that were destined for recycling. By reusing and repurposing these materials I'm protecting the environment by saving resources.
