I’m usually the gal with fifteen reusable bags with me at the super market but sometimes I forget or end up on an impromptu shopping trip & end up toting plastic bags home. I try my best to reuse these mainly as garbage bags in my bathroom’s waste bin. More often than not they end up in a giant mess under my kitchen sink. While perusing Pinterest I came upon this idea to reuse containers to make a plastic bag dispenser like as pictured in the above photo. I reused my container from my fave Shobha Rosewater Freshening Cloths, but you can use whatever large container you have at home as long as it’s empty!
As the art director on the marketing at Shobha we really try to come up with sustainable packaging for our products. The fact that you can reuse our containers for something useful like this is a tiny win in my world.
