cereal packets save plastic
September 16, 2012 9:56am CST
I was given a good environmental tip from my daughter. She removes the bags inside cereal boxes and uses them instead of buying plastic bags for refrigerated food. They work really well, they are much stronger, they are a practical size and you can wash and use them over and over again. It even saves a few pence, I never buy small or medium food bags now. Has anyone else tried this?

Yes, I do use them for years, somebody had to point it out to me when I was younger though and until then, it became a habit. I do not throw these plastic bags I get not only from cereal but from other products that has same packaging.

It's not something I've thought of, although I do try to reuse everything I can. I would guess this would be good for storing cheese, which would save using kitchen foil. I'll try this when my husband's emptied his box of Kellogs Cornflakes - thanks.

I haven't tried this but I will try. I think your daughter is right. It's not just savings in the pocket but also saving teh environment. We need to find ways on how we can reuse things to lessen wastes. This way we are helping in our own little ways. In my home, I always keep the plastics and those tiny clean ones that I could give back to seller I do, they could reuse or sometimes I use to store other things at home. I don't just trash things as if I am abundant with it.
