Reduce plastic consumption

My new OCD level ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ – sorting out plastic bags

I have been doing this for six months or so. We havenโ€™t been buying any garbage bags, try to reduce acceptance of โ€˜newโ€™ plastic bags as much as possible, reuse plastic packaging from things like flour, biscuits, food packaging and etc.

I am reusing the plastic packaging when I go to supermarkets – as in I bring those plastic bags to pack the loose groceries which is easier than using recycled bags (so far Tesco and Giant have been accepting my practice – or the staff just behtahan me๐Ÿคฃ) and also to throw rubbish. (My hubby is kinda โ€˜stressโ€™ to determine which plastic bag to use especially when it comes to throwing Norrahโ€™s poop ๐Ÿ’ฉ diaper! ) Sometimes I reuse the plastic packaging to wrap fresh veggies. I also try to use/bring my own containers for fresh pork and chicken as much as possible (but this is difficult especially if the two younger ones are tagging along).

After all these, we still have a lot of plastic bags in the house! ๐Ÿ˜“ Anyway, I am still not into making ecobricks (because I have no time for it). But seriously I am eager to learn how to make recycled bags from plastic – I have watched videos; they are quite time consuming too, to be honest! ๐Ÿ˜“
