Not these safety devices
But the sort of packaging that comes wrapped round parcels
Bob’s been installing the new PA at UCF, and we seem to have a lots of parcels which include packaging arriving at the Manse lately. Bubble wrap is fine, brown paper is fine [see here] but until now, these rolls of inflated pillows have defeated all my efforts at recycling. I stand in the kitchen, with a skewer, puncturing each pillow, and then roll them up tightly and throw the plastic in the bin. Then this week I had a brainwave, and did some experimenting.
The pillows have a definite seam along one edge, and they are separated by perforations. If you snip just below that seam with your kitchen scissors, and grasp firmly, you can pull off a whole strip along the top. Then separate along the perforations – and you have a whole stack of small plastic bags. Now all I have to throw away is that strip – and the bags will be ideal for the small items I’m selling at the Craft Fayre.
[Apologies for bad pictures- photographing transparent bags is hard]
