Live Green: Reuse Your Bread BagHow many people out there bake fresh bread every week? Good for you! We wish we had the time! The rest of us have to settle with a loaf of bread from the supermarket in that ever present plastic sleeve. If you go through a bag a week like us that's 52 plastic bags a year for around 13 million households in just the New England area alone. Since we're always looking for ways to reuse here at Chestnut Hill Realty Apartments, we came up with some great ideas on how to reuse your bread bag.


Use your bread bag as:

-Your lunch bag

-Packing material when shipping goods

-A bag for your sneakers in your gym bag

-A replacement for freezer bags

-A bag for piping icing onto cakes or cupcakes

-A handy bag for picking up pet mess

-A car travel garbage bag

-A bag to coat meat with seasoning or breading


What else can you do with your bread bag?
