Reusing something is a great way to reduce trash and pollution.No matter how hard I try, sometimes I can’t reuse things the way I want to. Or the way that other people seem to be able to. There are just certain products that baffle me: those mesh produce bags, for instance. My friend told me that you can reuse them, but neither of us could figure out how. Luckily, FaveCrafts came up with a list of really creative ways to reuse the bags after all fruits or vegetables are gone from inside. Below is the list, along with some other thrifty crafts and cheap eats.
