The multilayer bags that coffee beans come in are an ecological nightmare. Made of plastic, foil, paper and wire, these bags will take years to degrade in a landfill. But their durability makes them perfect for storing all sorts of nails, screws and other small parts. Because they’re moisture-proof, coffee bags are ideal for storing uncoated metal fasteners that might otherwise corrode. And the bags fit into a tool pouch.
