1. An apparatus for material storage, transport and dispensation comprising:
one or more flexible plastic sheets joined to form a bag comprising:
a chamber for holding material;
a first reinforced region forming a first end of the chamber, the first reinforced region formed by the one or more flexible plastic sheets; and
a second reinforced region forming a second end of the chamber, opposite the first end of the chamber, the second reinforced region formed by the one or more flexible plastic sheets;
a first hole formed in the first reinforced region;
a second hole formed in the second reinforced region;
a connector that passes through the first and second holes to directly connect the first reinforced region to the second reinforced region such that the one or more flexible plastic sheets that form the chamber form a loop of sufficient length to be looped over a shoulder of a person to facilitate transportation of the apparatus; and
a removal element for removing material from the chamber,
where at least one of the first and second reinforced regions contains embedded material to provide structural strength and reinforcement, andwhere the removal element comprises:
a nozzle; and
a flexible tube that couples between the chamber and the nozzle.
