Plastic shopping bags have plenty of uses that can keep them from landfill, but balling them up and tossing them in your pantry can get messy. Instead, mount a 2-litre soft drink bottle to the wall and use it as a makeshift bag dispenser.
Just cut off the bottom of the bottle, attach it somewhere inconspicuous such as the inside of a pantry door, and stuff your bags inside. When you need one, tug on a bag through the neck of the bottle, and it should come out easily. We’ve previously suggested doing this with an empty wet wipes container, but a big bottle like this will hold a lot more bags, and won’t pinch your fingers when you reach in to grab one.
