Just a Little Piece of a Bigger Puzzle
I just wanted to do a little something for Blog Action Day..
This is my creative reuse for some found objects that makes a oft icky reuse situation pretty easy.
I am not a natural born fan of the plastic lunch bag reuse cause. Mostly because they seemed like a huge hassle to get washed and dried. It seemed like they never came out very well. But clearly they can be reused.
For the last couple of years I have used a homemade "bag dryer" and the chore is a lot more palatable. The bags smell okay, get dry although they lose some new plastic luster (and who needs that really?), they are generally pleasant.
I use an old glass flower-frog.. These bobbles are often found in the flea market/thrift store/garage sale arenas... and some wooden chopsticks to make a dryer for our plastic lunch bags.
I just wash them with dish soap and water and dry them, thusly.
How long can you make one box of lunch bags last? A whole school year?
Every bit helps.
