Dog waste pickup.
Pickup of dead moles, rats, etc. from crawlspace.
Trash can liners in bathrooms and in the little trash can holder under the kitchen sink (that otherwise uses the expensive little plastic bags with 'ears' on a roll).
Deadheading the rhododendrons.
Hanging off a nail on the end of my sawhorse for tossing bent nails, wood scraps, etc.
Trash pickup along the road where passersby toss fast food trash, etc.
Hauling deceased frozen mallards for dog training.
Carrying home vegetables from friends and neighbors' gardens.
We use the darn things ALL the time for EVERYTHING.
The uses for plastic bags are endless. The big thing is I can grab about six of them full of groceries from my car and carry them through the rain into the house without breaking apart. They are more sanitary than cloth bags. Let a packet of chicken ooze into the cloth bag and you have contamination dripping out all over everything. Cloth bags should be washed after every use. You sit them on the floor of the car where someones shoes tracked in dog poo on the bottom of their shoe. In fact, these plastic bag banners are so much crap to scrape off the bottom of my shoes. That’s how low they are.
