I never head to the grocery store without my reusable shopping bags, but awhile ago a thought stuck in my mind: I’m bringing my reusable shopping bags to avoid using paper or plastic, but what about all those plastic produce bags? For the last few years my answer was to just not use bags for them… but let’s be honest, it’s annoying to have produce loose getting all smashed up. And it’s nearly impossible if you buy from the bulk bins to avoid plastic! I might be a little behind on this item, but heeellloooo genius reusable produce bags! Why aren’t these on the shelves of every grocery store in the nation?? I found this neat set at Crate & Barrel. I highly recommend you pick up some of these! and better yet, sew your own! Can’t be too hard, just a simple drawstring bag.
And here I am at GreenFest NYC using the bags in my Vegan Pantry presentation:
