Many different types of containers can be used for growing plants.  A multitude of bags and sacks in various dimensions can contain potting mix or simply local dirt mixed with some manure or compost and thus serve for plant cultivation.  This is only the first part of many examples.

A store bought special growth bag said to last for years, started to rot away after only one year. I have had good succes with these almost plastic like woven rice bags available in asia.
Curently trying a burlap sack for some potatoes, I guess I will have to keep that off the ground to avoid rot.
Havent thought about the plastic garbage bags yet.
What I have tried with success is just a garden center plastic bag with soil (40 liter) make two small holes on the flat side and put in a tomato seed. That worked well.
Old jeans work as well. stich the leg openings shut
