PVC Carrying Bag

I've been trying to find a bag to easily transport a project made out of PVC after it's be disassembled. The longest piece is 5ft. My first thought was one of the bags used for the colorguard flags, but those don't fit a whole lot. There has to be someone on here that's run into this problem before. Maybe someone has figured out a good way to carry PVC that isn't a bag? Any ideas?

DIY Tripod Carry bag

Hi. Does any of you knows of a way to how to make a sturdy tripod carry bag ? I tried to look to buy one, but either it's way too expensive, too small for the tripod or it's not sturdy enough (padding and/or stitching). Any ideas, recommendations or suggestions ? Thanks to answer

Camera bag insert covering

As I didn't want to spend extra money on a new camera bag I'm using an existing bag with a divider I've made from cardboard and an old camping roll mat. My question is I want to wrap it in something so it looks a bit cleaner and add an extra layer of waterproofing. I was thinking about using the material from an old tent but was concerned about condensation build up. I live in the UK so not much chance of weather! Please share any ideas. Oh and yes I will be replacing that tape for something a little more grey.

LAN Party Bag

I need to build a LAN Party Bag.  Or rather, a LAN Party Bag that needs to hold 3 monitors, along with a desktop.  I had a few metal-related ideas, but sadly, no welding equipment.  The computer weights 100+ lbs, so I can't use anything too cheap.  The monitors are 19" widescreens.  Plastic is too brittle, wood would have to be way too thick, and I don't have welding resources, materials, or equipment.  I don't expect to be wearing it, but rather rolling, then lifting into the car, and out when I arrive.  One idea is to maybe buy a hand truck, and mount sheet metal to the back (side facing wheeler), line with insulation, and put clips along the sides and bottom (the backpack-style clip-and-socket).  Any ideas are welcome.

Paper or Plastic when Neither isn't an Option

Paper... Or Plastic?The choice touted by environmentalists is... Neither - Bring your own bag and reuse it... But lets face the facts, not answer the question of paper or plastic isn't helping the majority of people who can easily make change but not willing to carry in a bag.... Honestly, it's almost sounds like an ego trip to hear "Neither" as the answer to this genuine question as asked (anyone agree with me?).Back on track... Paper or Plastic? Because most people, to my knowledge, do not bring their own bags - which is more eco-friendly? Please bring what knowledge you find to the table as a collaborative discussion :)Thus far, here's what I've found...Paper consumes 14 million treesPlastic consumes 12 million barrelsPaper creates 70% more air pollution than plasticPlastic creates 400% more solid waste than paperThe average American family (4) will consume about 1500 plastic bags annuallyAdditionally - does anyone know if cellulose plastic is used for grocery bags? If you're wondering what that is... Basically, it's taking cellulose (could be from trees) and making a plastic with it (such as cellophane among others).I am, as far as I know, the only person in my area that brings my own bag... It happens to be a plastic, vinyl and mylar soft sided cooler - but it has served me well.The floor is yours

Usb Lunchbox cooler\ cooling device

Is there a better way to do this? I was thinking of this , instead of taking your lunchbag to the fridge at work to have the lunch theives scavange it, Have a USB Cooling Lunchbag. I made a prototype but am missing the Peltier unit. Go straight from home to your desk, and keep your lunch cool the whole time instead of a hard cooler. Then unplug it from your usb port and tuck the cables in the pouch, an go. can someone tackle this ?

Demo (Contractor) Bags Are Sometimes Better than Garbage or Other Bags

Folks use garbage bags for storing and hauling .  Problem is, garbage bags rip easily and usually are good for one use. Demo bags are woven from polypropelene and are strong and  can be re-used.. Haul one load, dump it, bring the bag back,  Refill and repeat. Or use it for moving. No worries about ripping. They are not waterproof or completely dustproof. So one may wish to line it with a plastic bag. http://ecobrooklyn.com/demo-bags-trash-bag-alternative/ I think I may try to use this as a potato bag for growing potatoes a described in an earlier instructable

How might I go about building something like this? Ideas?

I found this on a website but it's a bit pricey for me. I'd love to make one for my girlfriend but I have no idea where to start. The design seems simple enough but there are parts that puzzle me, like the charging and wiring. Any help would be greatly appreciated.Rei HuggableFrom the site:We have wrote about this glowing pillow a loooong time ago, but now it's finally out of production and in the market and we are so happy to present it to you. What it is? Well for starters it's a soft and fuzzy pillow filled with 'silicone bean bags' that contain high intensity LED lights.These LED lights in the silicone beads make the entire pillow glow in an extremely calming and soothing way. Powered by 4 AA batteries – or if you prefer to hook it up to the adaptor, that's possible as well – the pillow glows strongly for about 4 hours and then the lights ever so softly fade over the next couple hours.

Melt and Mold Plastic Grocery Bags

Paper Bags Are Better Than Plastic, Right?

Paper Bags Are Better Than Plastic, Right? ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Summary: The answer to the "paper or plastic?" dilemma is: Neither. They're roughly equal in pros and cons. While convenient addictions, they both gobble up natural resources and cause significant pollution. Get basic design benefits of a paper bag and plastic bag with our award-winning replacements - the ACME Bags Workhorse (the plastic bag replacement) and the EarthTote (the paper bag replacement). Same brilliant basic design as their wasteful relatives, but designed to be used thousands of times. __________________ Issue 1: Energy and natural resources It takes more than four times as much energy to manufacture a paper bag as it does to manufacture a plastic bag. ENERGY TO PRODUCE BAG ORIGINALLY (BTUs) Safeway Plastic Bags: 594 BTUs Safeway Paper Bags: 2511 BTUs (Source: 1989 Plastic Recycling Directory, Society of Plastics Industry.) Of course, most paper comes from tree pulp, so the impact of paper bag production on forests is enormous. In 1999, 14 million trees were cut to produce the 10 billion paper grocery bags used by Americans that year alone. Paper bag production delivers a global warming double-whammy forests (major absorbers of greenhouse gases) have to be cut down, and then the subsequent manufacturing of bags produces greenhouse gases. Issue 2: Pollution The majority of kraft paper is made by heating wood chips under pressure at high temperatures in a chemical solution. As evidenced by the unmistakable stench commonly associated with paper mills, the use of these toxic chemicals contributes to both air pollution, such as acid rain, and water pollution. Millions of gallons of these chemicals pour into our waterways each year; the toxicity of the chemicals is long-term and settles into the sediments, working its way through the food chain. Further toxicity is generated as both plastic and paper bags degrade. POLLUTANTS PAPER V.S. PLASTIC Paper sacks generate 70% more air and 50 times more water pollutants than plastic bags. Source: "Comparison of the Effects on the Environment of Polyethylene and Paper Carrier Bags," Federal Office of the Environment, August 1988 Issue 3: Recycling It takes 91% less energy to recycle a pound of plastic than it takes to recycle a pound of paper. But recycling rates of either type of disposable bag are extremely low, with only 10 to 15% of paper bags and 1 to 3% of plastic bags being recycled, according to the Wall Street Journal. ENERGY TO RECYCLE PACKAGE ONCE (BTUs) Safeway Plastic Bags: 17 BTUs Safeway Paper Bags: 1444 BTUs Source: 1989 Plastic Recycling Directory, Society of Plastics Industry. Although paper bags have a higher recycling rate than plastic, each new paper grocery bag you use is made from mostly virgin pulp for better strength and elasticity. Issue 4: Degradability Current research demonstrates that paper in today's landfills does not degrade or break down at a substantially faster rate than plastic does. In fact, nothing completely degrades in modern landfills because of the lack of water, light, oxygen and other important elements that are necessary for the degradation process to be completed. A paper bags takes up more space than a plastic bag in a landfill, but because paper is recycled at a higher rate, saving space in landfills is less of an issue. Do you have any conclusion on paper bag or plastic bag?

Killerjackalope's social experiment results

Well I've been conducting a secret social experiment using shopping bags and the environmental topics everywhere as a media for this to happen. Basically my plan was to see if I could affect the decision of whether or not to take a bag when it's not completely necessary, to change the course of decision I used different phrases and tried to get a more accurate measure by choosing the same people that come in for milk or bread each day.The phrases are:'Would you like a bag?''Do you want a bag''Do you need a bag?''Wee bag there, mate?'Bag?'The results were really quite interesting, the one putting emphasis on need (very subtlety) reduced bag takings by over half in a day, whereas 'Wee bag there, mate?' produced a very high bag taking day because it detracts from the bags impact as an object. The other things I found was that it's actually possible to control some customers bag taking completely, there's a customer that comes in every day to get milk and I have managed to control his bag taking with about a 95% success rate, so shopkeepers unite and we can eradicate unnecessary bag taking, thereby reducing the majority of plastic bags that end up in the street and ocean, landfills are another story, thankfully my stores bags are fully biodegradable...What do you make of all this, and is it possibly a bit much power to give to a shop worker...On another note I have curtailed the efforts of one customer I know as the bag thief, he used to take five or six for various uses, through gentle shame jibing he's now down to one.

Repurpose or upcycle sturdy composite metallized food bags

Hi everyone. I posted this on the Answers section, but thought that this would be a good place too. One of my dear cats had to eat a special food for a while and I ended up with several composite metallized bags (picture attached).  In my country there are no options to recycle this kind of material. It's very sturdy and it will take many years to break down and that's why I don't want to throw it in the trash bin. Here there are many beautiful upcycled tote bags made with regular pet food bags which are fused and/or sewn, but these metallized bags are very hard. I wondered if someone has an idea on how to upcycle, repurpose or reuse these bags. Many thanks in advance, Ana.

Cat Food Bag Recycle?

Any new ideas for this cat food bag? It's too big for a wallet, and making a purse or messenger bag out of it just seems... redundant. I mean, it's already a bag, right? But my brain isn't coming up with anything else more creative. Its really too cool to throw away though. It's wonderfully shiny and colorful on the outside, and it appears to actually be woven together of some sort of tyvek material. It looks like it would survive a lot of abuse. I've got basic sewing skills, and whatever materials that I don't have around the house I can pick up from Lowes, Walmart or Joanns. :-)

Shopping Bags to Frisbees

Someone once told me that about the only way to join polyethylene plastic was with heat and pressure. Plastic shopping bags are a recycling problem.  I think they are polyethylene plastic.  Heat and pressure might turn them into Frisbees, or other essential things.  I visualize a vertical, heat-resistant cylinder with a removable  Teflon-coated bottom cap in the shape of a Frisbee -- black to absorb solar heat.  A piston inside with the other half of the Teflon-coated mold could have a weight on it to provide pressure.  Fill the cylinder with shopping bags, with the piston inside, and suspend it over a solar reflector to heat the end cap of the cylinder.   There you have heat and pressure -- and free energy to turn the shopping bags inside into Frisbees, or other objects. Personally, I don't have need for more Frisbees, and don't collect enough bags to keep the equipment busy.  On a community recycling scale, though, it might be a way to get rid of a lot of bags that nobody wants.  Would anybody like to run the experiment?

Best way to Seal bags together (air seal) ?

Http://www.lawrimoreproject.com/images/visart-news-magnum-500.jpgWell, I thought it be kinda fun to take a similar idea, but my question is, What's the best way to seal bags? The guy used many black plastic bags, never stated how it's connected. I've attempted box tape, but when i tape 2 bags together fresh from the box, and try inflating, the left/right sides leak just about every time, and cant always hold pressure. (Yes id like it to be able to hold some pressure!!) So, is tape really the best way to do that?

Chip Bag Survival

Hello Everyone: This is my first post in this forum. I have a website on preparedness and survival. I have posted also my first instructable as well basted on this topic. So my challenge to everyone is to use only chip bags and duct tape to come up with something that could save your life. Other than the fact that potatoe chips are part of a well balanced diet. The bags can be used to make all sorts of things. Have fun. Like this one below. Robert (Survival Central editor)

Super BAG!

I am sparsh from India and i am a technology freak i am very new to Arduino. I recently lost my sisters bag (it was her favourite one! ) she still hasn't forgiven me and make up to her , im gonna get her a new one... Not only do i wanna get her a bag, i wanna get her a Super bag! This is a bag i found online.. the one i lost was leather too.. ​ I was hoping all of you would be able to help me plan the bag ... Mission : a bag that has arduino and bluetooth connection and a small screen(to show bag battery and bluetooth connection status), can connect to phone, play music through awesome speaker that is connected to super large capacity battery that can be charged via wall plug or solar panel. Same battery has a standard Indian 3 pin socket to connect laptop on the go.  Maybe some way of bag lost detection on phone when bag not connected via bluetooth. Also maybe some lights connected to the arduino that respond to music playing through the bluetooth ... i also had the idea of using a breathlyzer or some other cool utility that you can think of ... I believe a lot of this will be possible with only an arduino board and a 1sheeld . Or if you have any other ideas in mind I have saved up some money. i would like to pay any of you some if you would like to help me with this project and think that you cannot do it for free ! Otherwise id love to see the community giving in their inputs and extra add ons. Thanks Looking forward to hearing from you ... sparshbatraphotography@gmail.com

I have some questions about "Zip Lock Bags"

I'm very new to zip lock bags and pouches and just found them in my area. I've read that they can be used to package cut vegetables, soup and eatables for long. I want to ask, if I put any kind of food items in them, and do not refrigerate, can the food items stay fresh even for a month? What if I prepare rice and pack it in a zip lock bag? Would it be fresh and eat-able when I open the bag, say after a few weeks? Can these bags also be used to heat food? Don't they catch fire? Just some questions I couldn't get answers for. Thanks to everyone who replies and also to everyone who doesn't :) RS
