SEEKING YOUR PLASTIC BAGS

Meals-on-Wheels

Do you unwittingly, and unwantingly, collect plastic bags until they overflow under your sink or in your cupboards? Fret not; they can have a second and even a third life. During meal deliveries, we sometimes have to leave our fresh and delicious meals at our client’s doors, hanging in plastic bags. You see where this is going, eh?
