Well, Stop the Week has come across a nifty idea from Malaysia, that might just catch on: why not recycle used plastic bread bags by weaving yourself a basket! And not only that... bread bags make the basket nice and soft - ideal for delicate shopping items such as eggs. Okay, so you do need a couple of other items, such as a few stakes and possibly a base to weave the bags around, but just look at the colourful result you can achieve. Hey, when it come to linking recycling with bread bags and shopping, you can rely on STW to come up with a snappy solution!
