I have been using reusable shopping bags for years now, ever since my mother bought a few canvas bags in an effort to reduce our plastic consumption, they have been my go to. But when shopping I never really thought about an alternative to the plastic produce bags so pronounced in grocery stores everywhere! In an effort to reduce plastic I usually leave my produce exposed to the elements – right next to a bottle of mustard that has been sitting on the shelf and has been touched by who knows how many hands? Making sure to throughougly wash everything before eating.
It wasn’t until I started working here at Eco-Bags that I had the reusable produce bag revelation – I could protect my produce from germs and bruising without having to use those wasteful plastic bags! Not only that but these bags are cute and great for farmers markets! There is nothing I love more than being on point in both trend and the environment!
