Upcycled Feed Bag Tote, Medium
Our 30 chickens free-range on pasture and in the woods, but most days we give them a few handfuls of layer pellets to make sure they get the minerals they need to be healthy and strong. Alas, the feed comes in #5 woven plastic bags, and #5 plastic is not recycled in our area.
What to do with a year's worth of bags? We used some to insulate the chicken coop. We've used some as paint tarps. And then we decided to sew some into sturdy, reusable shopping totes.
Maintenance: wipe clean with a damp rag. They can be washed in the washing machine on gentle/cool, but this may shorten the bag's life span.
Dimensions: each one is slightly different, but general dimensions are 4-5" deep, 10-15" high, and 15-16" wide.
Lifecycle: If #5 plastic is recycled in your area, you may be able to recycle this bag at the end of its lifespan.
Photos are representative, but your bag may vary slightly. Colors vary too: let us choose the color for you.
