Ooooh! How very tongue and cheeky of you; a substantial reuse with the bonus of grocery shopping humor. Hope the company of Shur-Gain gives you at least a bonus bag of feed.

Wow! Ingenious use of recyclable materials - like pioneer women using flour and sugar sacks for clothing and quilts. When the thing finally wears out, you can toss it in the recycling.

Wow..after enjoying each of the impressive entries, I had to stop & praise your clever use of of these feedbags.. This is truly what recycling is all about:) Beyond that, you even made pleasant-to-the-eye good use of the original graphics.. Where it me, I'd be "gifting" one of your bags to the feed company.. Your example might be the seed for a local recycling campaign..(perhaps for junior or senior groups) + provides freebie business advertising to a company you support, &, if said company is win/win savy, should net you a bag or two of free feed, in addition to a hearty thank you:) Chris

What a brilliant way to recycle!!! Your "fabric" also looks like it is a waterproof, wipe clean type.

Great description of what to do and I love the recycling factor. Maybe you should talk to the company and tell them what you did?? Who knows?? After all - it's good business.

What a great idea. I agree, if we look we can find tons of uses for throwaway items. Great review too!
