I know this may sound odd, but trash bags are super important to have in a SHTF scenario. Especially considering the possibility of a viral outbreak, which would in turn mean isolation and quarantine, trash bags are massively important!
What are trash bag uses? Here’s a list… if you have any more, please feel free to let us all know in the comments!
- Trash (obviously)
- Solar still
- Makeshift poncho
- Mattress (or insulation), when stuffed with leaves and other soft materials, this would be a great thing to try when camping
- Bodily waste (and pet waste) collection, not the most pleasant of things to consider, but where are you going to put it all in a SHTF scenario?
- Sealing windows and doors, when paired with duct tape, could be very important
- Cordage, cut into strips
- Ground cloth
- Water storage/transport
