Ok, so this may seem like something little, that’s been my reason for not writing about this……but I keep coming back to this idea b/c it all adds up. A lot of us have become reeeally good at remembering to bring our cloth shopping bags, why not produce bags? First off, I try to use as few as possible when shopping. Do avocados really need to be bagged? bananas? potatoes? If I do use, i try not to tightly knot, then i can easily untie when I get home and stuff produce bag right back into cloth bag for next time. Obviously there are exceptions (my lettuce bags tend to be one-timers), but its really not too tricky to re-use most of these bags…..
A friend, who so sincerely complimented my non-use and re-use of produce bags, sent me this link….
They sell cloth produce bags, although a bit pricey ($16 / 3 bags), really functional and very reusable. The site also has other great recycled, reclaimed gift items, household goods, and cleaning supplies.
