At La Mansión de las Ideas we continue to look for ways to recycle and maintain the environment, this time I will tell you about the important problems with plastic that is not recycled. More than 550,000 million bags are created in the world that take between 300 and 400 years to degrade.
Therefore when you go to the supermarket you will no longer have to ask for more plastic bags. In conclusion, in this way you will be helping them to need less, reducing their production and respecting the environment. Remember that it also helps you save in all aspects, because you already know that in almost all stores they already charge you.

How to make a dispenser to recycle bags: step by step
You start by cutting the sleeve off the shirt
You keep cutting the base of the bottle
You introduce the bottle inside the sleeve that you cut earlier and shape the dispenser.
You cut the rest of the sleeve leaving a margin of approximately 5 cm to finish the edge of the bottle
You trim the collar of the shirt to adorn the dispenser
With the silicone gun you glue the excess of the sleeve inside the bottle
Now you glue the collar around the dispenser to make it look like a shirt
The excess of the neck you glue it making a handle so that you can place it where you like the most
Now I show you how to fold the bags so that they come out one by one easily. The first one you fold it in half, turn the handle to the outside so that it protrudes and you can pull it, then you roll it up, with the following you do the same process but with the handle inserted at the end of the previous one, and so on with all. When all the bags are rolled up, you put them in your dispenser.
You see how easy it is to have the bags ready for when you need them.
