Eliminate Plastic Produce Bags

I don’t typically use plastic produce bags.  I mean, my veggies can usually play nice without being separated from each other by plastic.  🙂  But sometimes with bulk buying it’s just easier for the cashier to have like items all bundled together.  So if I buy 16 roma tomatoes to make Pico de Gallo for a family dinner, bundling them all together for the cashier just makes sense.

But oh how I hated to use that plastic bag.  I mean, yeah, I’ll make sure it gets reused somehow when I get home, but I’m trying to SHUN plastic aren’t I?

So years ago I started using see-through fabric reusable produce bags.  You can easily find reusable produce bags online *Amazon.  (I think I got mine at a Mother Earth News Fair.)

When I need to buy a bundle of tomatoes or a pound of pinto beans in bulk, I have a see-through yet reusable bag to use. An added benefit is that it often starts an eco conversation with other shoppers or the cashier.

Awareness is key in all of us reducing our single-use plastic landfill-bound trash!

It’s also a handy reusable bag to take with you to the Farmer’s Market.  These bags fold easily and you can tuck them into your pocket until you make your purchase.  The vendors at the Farmer’s Market love that they can keep their packaging for another purchase.  PLUS you don’t have to schlep home with something that you’ll need to figure out how dispose of it.  Win/win!

I love these little see-through reusable produce bags, and I’m sure you will too!  So in honor of Plastic-Free July I’m having a photo-sharing giveaway contest on our Facebook page.  I’m offering not one, not two but FIVE of these handy reusable produce bags for FREE to one lucky winner – C’mon and join the fun!

I don't use plastic produce bags at the store, but when buying in bulk it's helpful to bundle. I use see-through reusable bags! #TaylorMadeHomestead

This bundle of reusable produce bags contains 5 reusable bags with drawstrings.  Included are 4 bags that are 11″ x 14″ and one smaller bag that is 6.75″ x 6.75″.  They’re made of washable polyester so you can just toss ’em in the wash when you want to freshen them up.  Then they’ll be ready for duty again!

How can you win these for your own?  Well we all want to see your Plastic-Free win!  I mean, we can all encourage each other, right?  Did you remember to bring your reusable shopping bag & shun the single-use plastic one?  Or did you figure out a plastic-free way to store your leftovers?  Did you convince a company to sell you a product with no added plastic?

Good for you! 

Here’s your opportunity to crow about it and maybe win all these reusable bags too for FREE!

    I don’t use bags like this but I do use those ‘mesh’ / net bags. Sorry Tammy, I don’t do facebook either. It’s something that I just never gotten in to.

      Oh Colleen, so sorry! FB is the only place I would be able to allow photo sharing and ‘voting’ by way of likes to those photos. ~TxH~

    Well….fuddle. I’m not on Facebook anymore. I gave it up several months ago. At least I know what to look for on Amazon. Thanks!
