My question is, does anyone know if there is any way
to "return" plastic bags to a form that is usable/safe
for the planet?

Don't know where you picked up PVC in the subject line but food bags are
typically Type 2 (high-density polyethylene film - HDPE) and Type 4 (low
density or linear-low density polyethylene film - LDPE/LLDPE). Check with
your local recycling organizations for recycling options.
