Air-tight Recycling Tip

Ever wondered how you could seal a bag and make it air-tight... without mucking around with rubber bands? (yeup, I'm sure this problem has kept you awake many nights, right?!!)
Well, someone's devised a simple idea that's also good for recycling.
(1) Cut up disposable water bottle, and keep the neck and top.

(2) Insert plastic bag through neck, and screw top down to seal.

The bottle's air-tight to stop water leaking, so it'll also work to seal bags of produce. Obviously the size of the produce in the bag will be limited by the neck size of the bottle.
Whoever thought of this deserves an award for ingeniousness!

You could fill the bag first and at the end put it through the bottle neck, and twist the cap.
Nice trick though!
