These are a great option to reduce the waste created by plastic bags. I used to use sandwich bags for EVERYTHING; we would use them once and toss them.

Not only are you reducing waste, but you’ll save money but not buying sandwich bags all the time (which can actually be really pricey).

Produce Bags & Grocery Bags

Produce bags and grocery bags can be an easy way to create a lot of plastic waste very quickly, especially if you’re like me who MUST put each type of produce in it’s own bag (god forbid one food touch another!), and loves to double bag the heavy stuff. I simply switched to reusable bags, and not only am i reducing waste, but they also seam to be more sturdy and i’m able to fill them up more, making it easier to carry. These are also a great option if you live somewhere that charges for grocery bags in the store.

This is my favorite set of produce bags. They come with multiple different sizes and types of fabric for all of your produce needs. AND they come in a great carrying case that clips right on to your cart so they’re easy to pull out and use.
