Beginning in August of 2015, a Chicago ordinance required that all plastic bags must be reusable. The result was a proliferation of 10mm plastic bags, thick enough to be considered reusable and presumed by legislators to be expensive enough to discourage retailers from stocking them.
Walgreens went one step further and provided five suggestions for how to reuse their bags. Their strange little list reads like a work of flexographic poetry, and I decided to add a few ideas of my own. I pared an initial list of over fifty reuses down to twenty (four lists of five).
