Reusable Produce Bags
Every year, billions of plastic produce bags are tossed in the trash, ending up in our landfills. I’ve always tried not to bag the produce if I didn’t have to, but it comes down to the cashier giving me the evil eye when I’m trying to chase down the 12 apples rolling around in the bottom of my cart. And where was I supposed to stack those green beans?! I realized it was time to figure out a better way. A couple of nights ago I hopped on ReusableBags.com to finally order reusable produce bags. I chose a set of 5 bags, and then ordered 2 sets, because I know I’m not getting out of the store with only 5 types of produce at a time. In retrospect, I really should have gotten 3. This veggie family really nows how to get down with the fresh fruits and vegetables.
Once again, I couldn’t believe how quickly my ReusableBags.com order arrived and I couldn’t be more thrilled with the product. I was a little concerned the bags would be easily ripped or torn, but they’re a sturdy and durable material with plenty of room to fill. I love how easily they pull shut with the simply drawstring- so much better than wrestling with those stupid plastic bags to tie them up, only to have them ripped open again at the checkout by a cashier on the hunt for those item number stickers.
If you’re on the lookout for great reusable items such as shopping bags, produce bags, snack bags, canteens, I highly recommend checking out ReusableBags.com. To be fair, it’s the only site of its type I’ve ever purchased from, but my experiences have been so great I haven’t had need to look elsewhere. I get so many compliments on my reusable grocery bags, and I know these are going to get a lot of, “Where did you get those from?!” in the market as well. Next on my agenda are reusable sandwich and snack baggies, because the plastic ones I keep reusing are getting a little beyond beat up. They just seem so expensive on the initial purchase. A single sandwich bag is around $9 and I’m going to want at least 3 of those for our outings along with several snack baggies for extras, so they aren’t going to fit into this month’s “extras” budget. Maybe next month!
