We help you stay hydrated.
Do you have a stash of bags in your car or closet? You may be wondering what to do with them. Here are 9 ways to use shopping bags for survival prepping.
1. If you need to filter water, put the bag over a container and, before pouring it in, sieve it through the holes of the bag.
2. Lay out two bags and put a ground sheet between them. Use this as an emergency shelter (providing you have plenty of tie-downs).
3. Use another bag for a pillow at night by laying your ground sheet on top and then sliding your head inside to make sure that only your feet are exposed when you’re outside at night or inside with no power – not recommended if mosquitos are out!
4. You can also use shopping bags instead of toilet paper as an eco-friendly option during long periods without access to running water; making
No more pain, no more sore hands.
You know that pile of plastic or paper shopping bags you have stuffed away in a cabinet, the corner of your kitchen, etc.? Yeah. I’m guilty too. But before you throw them out check these creative and surprising uses for what may seem like just another clutter item around the house:
– Plastic Shopping Bags as Survival Gear
We take care of the water so you don’t have to.
Waterproof gear for any adventure!
With the stuff in this kit, you can’t do much heavy lifting like rock climbing. But it’ll hold together an impromptu shelter and many other light-duty tasks – water collection for example! If there’s rainwater collecting on a wall or ground somewhere, lean your bag against that surface with its opening facing outwards to collect all of the drips coming down from above while they trickle through (and don’t forget to tie up those handles). Another option would be using leaves as makeshift sponges. Wrap bags around bundles of tree leaves then close them tight enough so their dampness won’t escape before catching some dew by keeping these green vegetation things where they are.
Surviving in the wild is certainly a tough task, especially when your water supply runs low and you need to transport it. You can use plastic bags as makeshift gloves for protection against things like scrapes or disease-ridden items; but these thin material will not be able to withstand much of anything so make sure that whatever’s being transported isn’t too heavy!
Keep the world tied together.
The use of a plastic bag is not limited to protecting your dry clothes from the rain. Use it for any items that might need protection without adding extra weight or bulkiness to your pack, like matches and hygiene essentials. Waterproof gear doesn’t have to be expensive!
The first bag to have a voice
The plastic bag makes for a great temporary solution to many problems. As watertight as it is, the benefits are not only limited in this regard. For instance, if you’re camping and your tent suffers damage from mildew or rain seepage- there’s no need to worry about getting wet with these bags!
When you see someone with a large backpack or bag that looks more tactical, it is pretty safe to say they have something important on them. A lot of people don’t give much thought when they see somebody carrying around a shopping bag because most often times we use bags for everyday things and not our survival gear. However, if you are ever in need of supplies for your own safety then paper shopping bags may be exactly what the doctor ordered! These items can protect whatever goods inside from rain and other elements as well as act like padding so there’s less strain on any worn out shoes or boots too – win-win right?!
Say goodbye to flimsy paper bags.
Do you have a list of things to do when it is time for fire? Did you know that pieces of paper bags work great as writing down all sorts of information, too. You can put your tinder in there and wrap them up before tossing the bag aside- until its needed!
