If you've been trying to figure out what to do with all of your plastic bags once you can't use them for groceries anymore, city of Fort Collins, stuff your plastic bags.

While the City Council get's set for a Q & A session tonight at Fossil Ridge High School in Fort Collins from 6p.m. to 8p.m. about the proposed disposable bag ban, yes this includes the brown paper bag's too, we have a great way to reuse those pesky bag's.


  • Head to the fabric store and pick up some outdoor fabric
  • Sew, like you would sew a pillow, leaving one side open to stuff (size depends on your cushion needs)
  • Stuff with your disposable plastic bags to desired thickness
  • Sew up remaining side
  • Grab some ice cold iced tea (or coffee, maybe hot cocoa) and hit the patio with your new cushions.

The proposed bag ban would require grocers to charge a .10 fee for each disposable bag used. The City Council will make a final decision on this ordinance August 19, 2014.
