Recycling Food Lion Bags

Of course, Ryan Somma is a busy man. He can’t establish the headgear choices for ALL of Hunter Street, now can he? Last Saturday during our latest Hunter Street water fight, my neighbor Khaliya and her friend, forged their own sense of style.

Heads wrapped, the girls wait for the water fight

They wanted to keep their hair dry during the combat and they found an affordable material to do the trick. Take a closer look!

The girls found a way to reuse those environmentally pesky plastic shopping bags.

Want more ideas? Reader’s Digest has a seven page list of uses for plastic bags.

    …. So if I recycle something that’s gonna ultimately go in the trash anyway, while wasting a bunch of water in a frivolous water fight, will I get called green too? haha🙂😛

    And you did make sure they ended up in the recycle bin afterwords, right?

    Iris has a recycling project due tomorrow and we decided to fuse some plastic grocery bags:

    It worked pretty well, though we had to experiment with the number of layers of bags.

    @gasstationdave – Yup and inventive.

    @Clint – Depends. Is there cafeteria tray involved?🙂

    @geekhiker – Umm….Hmm…. I went back to work in the middle of the water fight, so I didn’t see what happened at the end.

    @Dave – Super cool! What did you guys make?

    I think we’re going to just going to cut out a template of Iris’ name out of the fused material tonight. Quicker and easier than stitching together bags or a wallet. 🙂
