Saved from Landfill...

I've been collecting up my crisp bags ever since I read a post on My Zero Waste telling us how crisp packets can be reused by women in the Philippines to make handbags.

I finally have an (reused!) envelope full of crisp bags, and I threw in a toothpaste tube for good measure, as they also collect them!

My envelope weighs in at 300g! Saved from landfill, going to charity and I still get to eat crisps! Hurrah!


  1. Awesome. I own a couple Doy Bags. They're made in the Philippines by women and made out of juice pouches. :D

  2. Hi Drea, thanks for visiting :D
    I've seen doybags on sale in some of the shops here, they're pretty nice!


Thanks for visiting!
