Over Christmas, I was fortunate enough to stumble onto this company called Bagnesia. They were kind enough to send me one of their Reusable Bag Reminder Kits. I had mentioned that I would love to try out their Bagnesia produce bags so this last week, they sent me a set. (Aren’t they sweet?)
I had never really thought about using reusable produce bags. But after I had received them, I started adding it all up. Each week, I was using at least 3-4 of the plastic produce bags. Yes, I’d recycle them when I was done, but still, that was about 150-200 produce bags a year, that I could have done without by using reusable produce bags.
When these arrived, I couldn’t get over how compact they were. They came in a little plastic bag that I could easily throw into my purse. And the size of the reusable bags was amazing! I easily fit a few pounds of grapes in them and had room for plenty more. The cashier even commented on how nice they were when I checked out.
I came home and washed off my produce and the bags and then put them right into my fridge, back into those same bags. No waste. Once I’m done, I’ll just rinse them off again, roll them up into that plastic bag and throw them back into my purse for my next trip. How amazing would it be if we all made just a simple little switch to reusable produce–and shopping bags. It’s just something small we can do for our children’s world, years from now.
Not only did Bagnesia send me a set of produce bags for myself, but they also offered me a set to giveaway to one of my lucky readers! So the winner will win one set of 4 Bagnesia Resuable Produce Bags.
