How to Fold a Plastic Bag!

So many people are already doing this, it's just so smart! After finding some instructions, I gave it a shot and this is how it turned out =) Happy folding!

The beginning was a sad sight. I was actually quite disappointed that even though I try my best to use cloths bags as often as possible - I had still ended up with quite a pile.

First I flattened the plastic bag

I folded it in half once

Then I folded it in half again

Starting from the bottom, I folded triangles over and over

(Apologies for the blur!) Kept going up...

I folded the triangles until I reached the bottom of the handles. I then opened the middle of the triangle and simply shoved the handle in!
Here is the end result! Lots of LITTLE triangles!

Give it a try and let us know how you go! I know, it seems like a boring OCD thing to do... but if you are drowning in bags it's worth it. I did it while cooking the dinner. I used 1/3 of the bags we had to create the above pile and the rest were bagged up (pun intended!) and sent to the Woolworths Plastic Bag Recycling bin. In Australia these should be available at all participating Woolworths.

Good luck!
