We recycle pop bottles and stuff. For some reason, milk cartons, even if they have a recycle label, here, they don't take them. Plastic bags go in the garbage for us since we have too many. For shopping, we use green bags. Burning plastics isn't the best of ideas since the gases are toxic, such as burning polystyrene and polyvinyl chloride (PVC).

If you have solid cloud valances and want to make them "pouffy" stuff with plastic grocery bags-----if on the the other hand you have more sheer valances then stuff with dry cleaning bags. Great for stuffing your Halloween scarecrows, too....for you gardeners great for protecting your shoes----just insert your foot and wrap around and tie onto your upper ankle..........for you new moms and dads-----perfect disposable diaper wraps.......and for you cat lovers.......hold up to light.......check for holes and dispose of your cat poo and tie tightly

I just want to do what I can to minimize my "footprint" in the world. I welcome your ideas and knowledge!
if it`s large clean pieces then shove it up in the attic!
if it`s small pieces then fill these bags with it, and then tie them up and put Those up in the attic.

it`ll not only "get rid of" them it`s also assist in keeping more heat in your house for longer as it`s Great insulation! and thus you save on your Fuel costs/Footprint

same goes for Bubble wrap.

VeraBlue, I have a clothsline that gets used spring - fall. In the winter I use a dryer rack over the heat vent.
