Plastic Bag Pillow Insert

Use plastic bags to fill the pillow and enjoy the comfort while sitting on your sofa!
We find easy and obvious to recycle bottles, we have ideas for upcycling them in projects such as Plastic Bottle Jewelry Stand or Upcycled Plastic Containers. But how about plastic bags?

Did you know that only about 3 % of plastic bags are recycled. We use tons of them annually but we don’t think about the consequences of the pollution we can cause while not reusing them. Even if we throw them away in a proper segregation bin we have to realize they don’t biodegrade. Bearing this in mind I stumbled upon an amazing use of grocery bags. Diane of In My Own Style has given me a green inspiration for Plastic Bag Pillow Insert. She rolls them lays into the outer bag to get the proper density and then she uses colourful covers to decorate her patio sofa.
