When we have no use for an item, we have a habit of throwing it out. That sounds like the obvious thing to do, right? Only sometimes, the things we throw out can be repurposed and reused very easily. Plus, some discarded items can actually be bad for the environment. You’ll be surprised by how many things should never go near the garbage bin! So if you want to help Mother Nature and save some money at the same time, read on.
1. Paper Bags
If you have brown paper bags around your house, we’re here to tell you not to throw them away. The next time you’re done eating your lunch out of your brown bag, save it because they may come in handy on a rainy day.
If you get caught in the rain and get completely soaked, scrunch up the bag, and stuff it into your shoes or the sleeves of your wet clothes. The paper will absorb all the moisture and your wet items will dry much faster. Amazing!
