What to Do with Reusable Shopping Bags 

bag-canvas-canvas-bag-1214212Think outside of the grocery store

Most people are in the habit of bringing reusable bags to the grocery store but, they also work for other items too.  Try carrying a few bags with you on any kind of shopping trip.  Some retailers may even offer a bag credit.

Reuse them around the house/garage

Use reusable bags to store items in the closet or garage.  You can use bags to separate clothes within a large storage bin. They fit into tight spaces and are easy to pull out because of the handles. 

Donate them

ChicoBag Company accepts reusable bags, functional or not. They will distribute to low income families or recycle them into new, useful products through partnerships with artists, crafters and non-profit organizations. Mail your unwanted reusable bags to: ChicoBag Company, c/o Zero Waste Program, 747 Fortress Street, Chico, CA 95973.
