    Don't think so - there'd be issues with the straps fraying - only way they'd be sure they're safe is a new one each time :-(

    Yup. The powers that be have dictated that these bags must start to rot away within days. In a short period of time, you cannot lift them as they just go in bruck. So you have no choice to chuck them, and re-using is an impossibility.

    And we have folk on here that say that reusing in the "golden age" was just a fallacy.....

    We re-use ours. mainly as carpets and curtains for the kids den.....
    They get holes in really quickly!
