Onya Reusable produce bags-5 pack
One of our local supermarkets has recently started charging for plastic bags in an attempt to encourage their customers to bring their own reusable bags which we think is fantastic! If you haven't watched ABC's 'War on Waste' you really should to understand the scale of the plastic waste problem we have. Produce bags however are still available for use. I have always tried to avoid them because I find them basically useless to reuse given their small size so they end up going in the rubbish. I previously just made sure that I put the fruit/veg loose at the top of the trolley. These bags and other reusable produce bags solve the problem all together as well as help you in other ways we found. Firstly we love them because they come all together in a little bag so you just take that to the supermarket rather than all of your loose ones which can be easily forgotten if you are not very organised like me. Secondly, because they are mesh, you can just wash your produce in the bag rather than individually washing or using a colander or whatever else you normally use. The produce doesn't sweat either. Thirdly, I also use one of these for a delicates bag! We love value add products and Onya do that particularly well. Lastly-they are made from recycled materials themselves so even better.
What makes these reusable produce bags so good?
These Reusable Produce Bags are an easy alternative for single use plastic fruit and vegetable bags when shopping.
Crafted from special rPet fabric, the produce bags are made from recycled plastic drink bottles.
With many people trying to attain a closer to zero waste lifestyle, these produce bags allow you to do your weekly shop without the need for single use plastic.
They are very light but deceptively strong mesh bags can hold up to 2 kilos of produce and feature a gusset and drawstring tie.
Weighing in at only 10 grams per bag, the reusable produce bags barely register on a scale and the see through mesh bags allow shop assistants to know exactly what is inside your produce bag at a glance.
The bags let water/air flow through so you can use them to wash your produce before popping in the fridge, or simply hang them to keep fresh.
They stuff down into a brightly coloured pouch the size of your fist when not it use and can attach to a belt or bag by way of it’s strong clip.
Traditional single use plastic bags can also cause ‘sweating’ making the life cycle of your fresh produce much shorter. The open nature of the mesh bags allows your produce to ‘breathe’ which gives it a longer life.
The bags can be washed simply with a cool water handwash when the need arises, or they can be put on a cool gentle cycle in the washing machine.
