Plastic Grocery Bag Dispenser
We use the plastic grocery bags that we get at the store to line our wastebaskets at home. We don't accumulate that many as we typically use our cloth bags at the store, but the ones that we do get can clutter up a space fairly quickly. To keep them in order I made a plastic bag dispenser from a Dioramarama tutorial I originally found on the Sew, Mama, Sew blog. This is a quick and fun project that will revolutionize your closet or kitchen space. Who knew a plastic bag dispenser could be so cute and so handy?
On this note, I'm with Kris on the thought that by using these plastic bags as wastebasket liners, I'm just justifying the existence of plastic bags. But if I didn't have these 'free' bags from the store, would I buy plastic bags for my trash? I can't see putting my trash in the garbage can without a bag, because then I have visions of all my trash, loose, spewing from the back of the garbage truck. I think the only answer to this is to stop producing ANY trash. I will talk to my two cats (who happen to be the major culprits behind the export of trash from our house) about this issue and get back to you on it.
