Just because you are using environmental or recycled shopping bags doesn’t mean that you are totally eco-friendly. For one, have you kept count on how many of these things you have around? If you figure it out mathematically, it may come to a point where you may have an excess number of bags lying around. And once that happens, you have an entirely new waste problem since tendency is you will throw them away and then add to the landfill issues we are encountering today.
However, with some creativity you can make use of them in a different way. Try shopping bag pillow covers which if don’t right can really be a new fashion statement to liven up your home. Rather than throw them away, this is an alternative way of making use of them, shying away from adding a new issue as far as garbage problems are concerned.
