How can you reuse bread bags?

´╗┐Bread bags are made from low-density polyethylene. So it’s plastic. You could put them in the special containers for recycling plastic or you could simply reuse the bags at home, in your household. I remember my grandma being ecologically by mistake:) and using a plastic bag for several years and in different situations: she packed my sandwhiches for school or prepare some bags to store for the winter, in the fridge.

droppings or irrigate plants just by making holes in it. What other innovative ways could we find together?
