I work with have drawers and cupboards full of carrier bags that they
believe will come in useful one day. In the meantime they are taking up
valuable space.. So what can you do about your own stash?
recycle the ones you have - supermarkets like Sainsburys have a recycling
bin or Ocado's home delivery service will take away unwanted bags.
- Ask local
independent shops such as a health food shop or a charity shop if they
could use your overload of bags.
- Fill them
up with unwanted clutter this weekend and take them to the charity shop.
- Get trendy
- get a colourful cloth shopping bag so you can just say no when you're
at the till.
- Or buy
a plastic bag for life from the supermarket for a few pence and keep
on using it. The supermarket will then replace it free when it's had
will you be helping the environment but you will also be liberating space
in your home!
