Categories, dude. Make the most of the bags you have! Minimize trash in the first place, then get creative. There are so many substitutions available in the typical household since, unfortunately, so many products we buy come in plastic packaging. In our house we use the liners from cereal boxes and the plastic bags from processed snacks like chips to clean the litter box, and save bread bags, used zip-locks, and anything similarly non-porous for walking the dog. I've also used the plastic wrapping from toilet paper packages for dog-walking- folded and strategically near outdoor dumpsters and trash cans. I recognize it's a little extreme but we're that concerned about the environmental issues. I'm not saying it'll work for everyone- or that I believe my partner actually follows this system when I'm not around- but it might help some folks in a pinch! If we ever get more consistent access to sustainably packaged food, we'll prob spring for some compostable dog walking bags but we've never run out.

I googled for compostable bags to use with my cat litter instead of having to use plastic bags and anti icky poo came up with a great product and price!
This is my second time ordering these bags from them.
What's so great about these litter bags, you ask
