First and foremost – I need to reduce my carbon footprint. So the fact that I regularly use Ziploc or other freezer bags at all is not the best thing that I can do for the environment. But I really like Ziploc bags and I use them to bag and freeze my homemade stock, for lunches, to save vegetable scraps, etc., so I rinse and reuse Ziploc bags until they are ready to be pitched.
Here are some good blog posts that talk about what some other folks have done in terms of building a system to reuse baggies, drying them, recycle them, etc.
The interwebs are also full of alternatives to sandwich bags … there’s lots of food for thought out there.
