Storage bags feature Grip n' Seal technology. Our triple system seal features an extended tab, easy grip texture and a double zipper. The extended tab and easy grip seal make it easier to open and close the bag, while the airtight zipper ensures that each plastic storage bag blocks out air providing unbeatable freshness, which means less wasted food and more money saved.

Some stores have temporarily halted collection of plastic bags and wraps. And some of you are not able to venture out. If either is the case, please collect your bags/wraps at home until events change. Bags/wraps can be compressed and stored inside another plastic bag.

Thank you for your support of plastic film recycling. Recycling contributes to sustainability and provides valuable materials for American manufacturers, so we encourage you to continue recycling when and where possible.

As Earth Day rolls around each year, it leads to discussions about ways to live a greener life. In today's post, I'm focusing on one small thing I do to conserve: washing and reusing plastic ziploc-type bags.

Plastic bags are both a blessing and a curse. Wow, are they convenient. I use them in so many ways, especially for freezing food. But, once used and discarded they are such a problem in our landfills, oceans, and environment in general. Plastic bags take over 400 years to biodegrade. Tons of carbon emissions are produced each year from manufacturing them. There are many reasons they are hurting our Earth.

The one foot bar that I've stepped over has been to wash and reuse plastic ziploc bags. Doesn't sound like a big deal. I know. But, it's a small thing I can do to conserve. My mom and sister have been washing their plastic bags for years, and I'm following their example.

A task isn't sustainable for me unless there's a routine, easy system in place. It took me awhile to figure out one for dealing with my plastic bags. I didn't have a good way to dry them or store them. They tended to pile up in a dirty mess; or after I got around to washing them, they were clean but still in a messy pile. But, I've got a system figured out now that makes it very easy and routine to manage cleaning, storing, and reusing plastic bags. Here's what I do.

This method is what made cleaning plastic bags easier and more routine for me. It's what I usually do. The bags must be turned inside out first so that the jets of water hit the dirty surfaces of the bag. Place them in the top rack of your dishwasher.

Move some of the other items in the diswasher around so that they anchor the bags. This keep the bags from flying around when the water is jetting through. You want to leave as much of the bags exposed as possible, while still holding them in place. Also, you don't want the bags to block the dishes from getting cleaned. After a try or two, you'll figure it out. My bags get really clean this way.

There are lots of gizmos out there you can buy for drying plastic bags like this. They work well, but aren't necessary. It's likely that you have what you need to make a quick drying gizmo of your own. Here's what I use:

All credit goes to Grammy (aka my mom) for this clever idea. Before when I had washed my ziplocs, I was left with a pile of bags of misc. sizes that lay flat in my drawer. It was a hassle to find the right bag when I needed it. I copied Grammy's way of storing the bags using the cardboard tubes from paper towel and toilet paper rolls. Not only is this a totally awesome way to organize my used ziplocs, but it is also reusing those cardboard tubes. Another way to conserve. LOVE IT!

To provide a safer environment for the public and significantly expedite fan entry into stadiums, NFL teams have implemented an NFL policy this year that limits the size and type of bags that may be brought into stadiums. Exceptions to this policy will be made for all medically necessary items after proper inspection.

The NFL strongly encourages fans to not bring any type of bags, but fans will be able to carry the following style and size bag, package, or container at stadium plaza areas, stadium gates, or when approaching queue lines of fans awaiting entry into the stadium:

Prohibited items include, but are not limited to: purses larger than a clutch bag, coolers, briefcases, backpacks, fanny packs, diaper bags, cinch bags, non-approved seat cushions*, luggage of any kind, computer bags and camera bags or any bag larger than the permissible size.

The league and clubs review their public safety and stadium security policies every year looking for ways to improve them. The Committee on Stadium Security and Fan Conduct leads this review and obtains a wide range of information to assist in doing so. The committee strongly believed that it made sense to adjust our policy to enhance public safety and make stadium access more efficient by limiting the size and style of bags carried into the stadium.

Yes. In fact, some like the University of Michigan, Penn State, and Michigan State University do not permit any bags. The pat downs and metal detector screenings of all individuals entering NFL stadiums provide an additional level of safety for fans. The limitations on bag size and style is a further enhancement for convenience and safety.

There will be a secondary perimeter around the stadium where security personnel will check for prohibited items or bags being carried toward the stadium so those situations can be corrected immediately. This establishes a protected buffer area for fans in plaza-level areas and at the queues for stadium entry. Prohibited bags will be turned away. Any prohibited bag inside the second perimeter will be highly visible and more quickly resolved.

This will enable us to move fans through our security check points much faster. A standard size bag eliminates the need for bag templates to check bag sizes. It will make the stadium's job much easier, allowing staff to be more efficient and effective in checking bags that are brought into the stadium. There will be less time spent standing in lines at the stadium gates. Fans also will enjoy an improved sense of safety. Shorter lines mean fewer hassles.

There are a variety of options, including a clear 12" by 6" by 12" bag with no commercial identification or an inexpensive Ziploc bag. In addition, fans may carry their own small clutches. For fans who wish to purchase team logo bags, they will be available.

Fans carrying bags that do not meet the criteria will be turned away from the stadium well before they reach the gates. As an alternative for guests that have no other option, stadiums are encouraged to consider providing the opportunity to temporarily check non-compliant bags at a facility located well outside the bag-restricted area. Check with your local stadium before the game to see if alternative storage is available.

Exceptions to this policy will be made for all medically necessary items after proper inspection. Individuals will be present at stadium entrances to allow screening of these bags and medically necessary items.

No. Unlike some event venues, we are not banning all bags. Small clutch purses, with or without a handle or strap, are permitted along with either the 12" by 6" by 12" clear tote bag or the one-gallon freezer bag. No buckles, grommets/hardware, or décor can be concealing any part of the bag. The bag literally must be all clear. This should enable you to carry the same items you have in previous years and speed entry into the stadium for all fans because it will take less time to screen bags. Shorter lines means fewer hassles. We encourage fans not to bring any bags, but have created a policy that balances fan needs with improved public safety and convenience.

No. We are limiting only the type of bags carried into the stadium, not items that you normally bring to a game. Therefore, you can carry in your pockets or jacket keys, makeup, feminine products, comb, phone, wallet, credit cards, etc., if you choose not to put them in a clear bag or clutch. And you can carry a blanket over your arms, and binoculars and/or camera around your neck or in your hands without the case. You can use the clear bag and clutch to carry other items. You will continue to have the flexibility to bring a wide variety of approved items into the stadium. Every member of your family may carry in a permissible bag.

I used the ziploc big storage bag...very heavy duty, great seal. Checked to make sure it was food safe this year (I've used them for several years and never checked before to make sure it WAS food safe--just assumed it was )...wondering what other brands/types are out there.

LDPE (low density polyethylene) offers clarity and flexibility. It is used to make bottles that require flexibility. To take advantage of its strength and toughness in film form, it is used to produce grocery bags and garbage bags, shrink and stretch film, and coating for milk cartons.

Regular Ziploc bags can be used safely for brining. The one-gallon size can be used for small cuts of meat like pork chops, chicken pieces, while the two-gallon size will accommodate a whole or butterflied chicken. Just put the meat in the bag, add the brine, zip the top, and place in a mixing bowl in the fridge for support and to catch any leaks. 041b061a72
