Carrying trash bags in your bug out bag is a smart thing to do. They weigh almost nothing and can be used in so many ways. Even if you don’t bug out they can come in handy in a power outage.
One example is in a situation when your toilets won’t flush due to being broken or a lack of water to flush with, you can completely drain the toilet bowl and use the trash bag as a liner in it. When it begins to smell you can simply remove that bag, tie it shut and add a new trash bag liner. If trash is still being pick up you can get rid of the used bags that way. If there is no garbage pick up simply dig a hole and bury the bag. Survival Life shares 30 uses for trash bags in your bug out bag.
