Reusable mesh produce bags are a sustainable shopping alternative
Reusable mesh produce bags are a sustainable alternative to plastic produce bags. Most of us now bring our reusable shopping bags to the supermarket, but we still put loose fruit and vegetables into single-use plastic bags — a lot of them. In fact, the ten leading supermarkets produce 1.2 billion a year.
Fortunately, there are more products out there than ever before to help you live a more sustainable lifestyle. These reusable mesh produce bags, however, are an easy way to make your grocery runs much less wasteful. According to the product description, the bags are BPA, lead and mercury-free.
If you don’t get a lot of fruits and vegetables, not to worry, these reusable mesh bags can be used for more than just groceries; they can be used for beach trips, gym clothes, camping and road trips, office supplies, books, toys and more. Grocery store plastic produce bags that we mindlessly grab to wrap up our fruits and vegetables are used for just those few minutes to carry them from the grocery store to your home. Instead, swapping to these BPA-free mesh bags is a simple and easy way to eliminate a wasteful habit overnight.
The bags are sold in a set of 9, with a range of sizes so you can use them to suit different purposes. For US$25, there are two small bags, five medium bags and two large bags in all. Interested buyers of the reusable mesh produce bags can get them here.
