Lightbulb free zip looc bags, wax paper, and wrapping paper

1.Save the inside of cereal bags for wax paper
2. Wash out chip bags and reuse the shiny side for wrapping paper
3. Throw used zip locs into the washer with laundry, remove, hang on fridge with a magnet to dry for another use .
4. Use popcorn from packaging to string up for Christmas trees.

Happy Recycling!

I don't think I'd do the potato chip bag thing, but everything else sounds feasible.

Great ideas!

I recycle my zip lock bags but didn't know I could put them in the laundry. Do you put them in side out?

I also save my milk bags. They are great for freezing veggies in!

Will keep the cereal bags in mind next time I empty a bag.

I hand-wash plastic Ziploc bags and hang them out on the clothesline to dry. Been practicing it for years.

I wash zip-lock bags that haven't had meat in them.
I re-use foil. By the way, it makes a great scrubbie for pots.

We got a big gift for Christmas, so I carefully unwrapped it, and later rolled the paper up on an empty paper roll to re-use!
I re-use gift bags, tissue paper and pretty boxes from year to year.
