How can I reuse or recycle woven plastic bird food bags?
We’ve had an email from Siddharth:
How do I recycle plastic bird food bags? The brown paper ones I can just throw into the paper bin, but the recycling facility doesn’t accept the woven plastic ones.
I suspect there will be some overlap between these bags and the plastic sacks we get when bulk buying rice.
Suggestions over on the rice sack page include making them into shopping bags, aprons or using them as a groundsheet/roof-liner for kids’ playhouses.
Cut into strips, they could also be used as ties around the garden – we always have stuff out there that needs tying to other stuff ;)
Any bird seed bag specific suggestions?
