Hi Dave,

Are these all ziplock bags?  Any antistatic bags?

If they're re-usable then perhaps some suggestions:
- local charity shops (good for selling small items)
- local schools (kids can keep bugs or other small things in them, or maybe
art?)
- local hackspace (storing small parts, etc)

Cheers,
Neil
