We do all these suggestions to use less plastic, but somehow it still creeps into the house. Fortunately, our area recycling center also takes clean plastic bags; bread bags, cereal bags, plastic food and shipping wrap. Check with yours. We now recycle almost 100%.
Jen amended to say: Please note: you have to take it to the recycle center; you can’t put it out with the regular recycle stuff. But that’s a small price to pay to recycle the stuff!
