    i remember what we used before plastic bags became ubiquitous. Waxed small and medium bags to put scraps in.

    someone could make a fortune with used recycled paper and coating it the wax, then making those medium garbage bags again. The originals have long since broken down, while their replacements will haunt us for millenia. Sometimes “progress” isn’t.

    we use plastic bags (in the wheat thins boxes) as litter bags for our pets poop. Empty starbux coffee bags are great for dumping poop into also, the coffee smell really goes after the poop smell!
