Does anyone remember the days before Ziploc® bags and plastic containers? Bread bags were a hot commodity. Moms and grandmothers from all walks of life saved bags to store leftovers, use as lunch bags, and even as boot liners to keep feet dry and snug during the winter. Today Country Hearth and Village Hearth bread bags aren’t really re-used and repurposed; but can and should be recycled. A bag from a package of Kids’ Choice White bread or Village Hearth Classic Hot Dog buns can be recycled into a variety of products; including composite decking, new bags, pallets, containers and more. Look for a recycling bin at your local grocery store. Our products are so Earth-friendly, that even the twist ties we use are certified as completely biodegradable!
