    I think they should make them have a deposit like cans but in all states so they for sure get recycled.

    I shall try saving them and including them in bottles that are being recycled! Great idea for those bread bag tabs.

      I hope so, I collect them and put them into a larger recyclable so they don't get lost. I also will reuse one to keep the end of a roll of tape from re-sticking to its roll! Works great!
