Get a whole bunch of plastic bags (we know you have them), cut ‘em down, stack ‘em together and do some other stuff [ instructions here ]. And voila! A plastic bag tote of your very own.
This project is great because it puts to good use something people already have lying around and aren’t likely to recycle. It also answers a need for reusable bags, which (if they’re also made of plastic) only last 2-3 years anyway.
