There are many ways to reuse those plastic bags you get from the grocery store and keep them out of the landfill and oceans (not to mention save you money). Here are a few ideas:

  1. Small trash can liners
  2. Lunch bag
  3. Transport wet items from the pool or beach
  4. Shower cap (Yes, I actually do this one. Make sure there are no holes in it.)
  5. Doggy poop bag
  6. Cat litter bag and liner
  7. Wrap anything smelly in it before throwing into the trash or carrying home
  8. Paint tray liner
  9. Use like newspaper and  bubble wrap when moving or packing
  10. Stuff in boots and purses to keep shape during the off season
  11. Store items to keep them dust free
  12. Use it to drain kids bath toys (poke small holes in bottom)
  13. Use it to defrost meat in the fridge (catching any mess)
  14. Recycle them at the local store (See why recycling is the last thing you should do here.)
  15. The best way to help the environment is to use canvas bags instead.
