Branching Out Woodworks (+ Giveaway!!!)
Not that long ago, I wrote about my feelings of waste here. In short, I loathe it. I’d rather rip up an old flannel sheet and re-purpose it into cleaning cloths, or move the stained rug (thank you cats, again…) onto the porch, or give a beat-up dresser a fresh coat of paint than to ever throw things out.
Plastic bags reserve a special place in my waste abhorrence litany. They provoke my ire possibly more than anything else. And so, I try to use them, and reuse them, and then use them again as much as possible when I find myself in possession of them.
The handy dandy tool pictured above makes getting them clean in between uses so very easy (you know you can click on the photos to make them larger, right?). Locally made by Branching Out Woodworks, this bag dryer is positioned either horizontally or vertically once assembled. You then simply place your wet (but clean!) plastic bag onto it, wait for it to dry out and then, BOOM! POW! It’s ready to be used again.
I love this device. It’s so simple and yet so genius, all at the same time. To spread the love around, today I’m offering one small measure reader a bag dryer to use, use, and then use some more! To enter, simply leave a comment below telling me some small measure of your own that you take towards reducing waste.
Please, please leave means of finding you, should you be the winner, via either a link back to your blog or website, or by leaving your email address in the comments (if you’d rather not leave your email address there, just leave an anonymous comment, and then send me a private email with your information; I’ve yet to figure out another way of doing this). I’ll run the giveaway through next Wednesday May 30th, midnight EST.
Together, let’s lay to waste plastic bag wastefulness!!!
UPDATE: The winner of the Branching Out Woodworks bag dryer is Woolies! Congratulations!!! Thank you everyone for your entries. I loved reading about all of the small measures you’re taking towards reducing waste!
