It’s surprising how quickly those plastic bags accumulate at home and even at the office. You may not realize it, but recycling plastic bags is one of the easiest ways we can reduce our impact to the environment. Plastic bags are recycled into a number of products.
Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle
One way to reduce your use of plastic bags is to pack along a “green” friendly NWPP bag (non-woven polypropylene) to tote groceries home. These bags often come branded with your favourite charity or company logo.
Recycled plastic bags end up being reused in some surprising applications. The hard plastic created from recycled plastic bags is often found repurposed for use in the yard and garden.
- Garden edging
- Plastic stakes
- Outdoor seating
- Playground equipment
- Fence posts
