More than 18,000 retail locations across the country – such as large grocery chains, home improvement stores, Walmart, Target, etc. – provide collection bins for plastic bags/wraps/film, usually in the storefront close to the main entrance.
Since you picked up your grocery or shopping bags at these stores, why not just return them on your next trip? Many people collect them over time, along with dry cleaning film, wraps from paper towels, newspaper delivery bags and more, and then stuff them into the storefront bins. When these bags/wraps/film get recycled, they are turned into new products, such as backyard decking, fences, playground equipment, pipes … and even new plastic bags.
Do yourself, your community recycling program, and the environment a favor and check out Earth911.com and PlasticFilmRecycling.org to see where and what bags/wraps/film are accepted – plus take a quick minute to learn what is collected curbside in your community. *From #plasticsmakeitpossible website
