Charity bags being wasted
Are you, like me, starting to get fed up with the amount of charity collection bags arriving on the doorstep at a rate far greater than we discard household items and clothing for recycling through charities?
Are you, like me, starting to get fed up with the amount of charity collection bags arriving on the doorstep at a rate far greater than we discard household items and clothing for recycling through charities? Just how much stuff do these charities think I can give away every week?
If I return the bags to the charities, it will cost postage. If I use them as bin liners, it'll be frowned upon and I'll feel guilty. If I bin them - what a profligate waste of plastic!
Recently, I noticed a charity shop offering collection bags at the shop itself. A good idea: take one only if you want to fill one. Of course, not every charity has a shop. But could the charities not come to some arrangement to distribute bags in turn, more sparingly and at a reasonable rate? More would be filled, fewer would be wasted.
The most annoying thing with these charities is that, even though you put the bags on your doorstep, they sometimes don't collect them! I have a bundle of 14 unused bags. I have put each of them out (unfilled, I'm afraid), but they have not been picked up. What can I do with them? Ideas please.
