Recycle Old Bags Into Reusable Snack Bags

Many of us have hoarded endless reusable bags to try and reduce plastic bag use. Although reusable bags are a great alternative to plastic bags, the problem is that most of the time we tend to have too many lying around. If you have excess, you might be tempted to throw them away, causing more waste and negating the positive behind reusable bags. Instead of throwing them away, you can turn them into something else that’s actually useful. You can make reusable snack bags out of them!
