Do you have a lot of shipping envelopes hanging around? I have a hard time throwing them away, and I try to reuse them but I don’t ship that much. So I decided to make my own trash bags out of shipping envelopes. Delivery envelopes and packages lined with plastic are never recyclable. So, I just cut them up and then pieced them together! This does require the use of plastic tape, but it felt better to use these for trash with a little plastic tape than to simply throw them away.
That’s all there is to that. Here’s another I made using Amazon yellow paper mailers with air bubble padding:
