If you buy bread or hamburger rolls at the grocery store, you've probably taken off a clip or a twist tie to get at the baked good. Over the course of a year of buying bread, that adds up to a lot of bread tags and twist ties. These can't be recycled easily because bread tags (also known as bag clips or bread clips) are usually made with polypropylene, which cannot be recycled, and twist ties are made of a variety of materials, which makes them hard to recycle. Both types of clips are also very tiny, so they often get stuck in recycling machines.
Fortunately, there are many ways to reuse them that can really make your life easier. Here are some ultra-useful ways to reuse bread tags and twist ties and keep them out of landfills.
