I was so happy to see a responsible vendor, Weis, a grocery store chain, promoting this clever phrase on their bag - "Unmistakably Recyclable". Hopefully it helps bring awareness to a few people who have yet to start recycling these suckers.
Speaking of recycling, I was getting ready to empty the contents of my paper shredder and thought of how great these paper shreds would be for holiday packing and shipping material. I even began clumping it together in my hand, forming balls. I began thinking of snowballs. Hmmm, a potential, creative, holiday project may ensue.

So in light of all the "green" awareness lately, please recycle your plastic bags. There are drop-off locations at most major department and grocery stores . . . (aka the source of the problem)
Oh and I forgot to mention, I got this bag as a "recycled" one when I bought a few items at the local thrift store recently. At least they are being recycled in that manner (reused).
