Making more sustainable choices in everyday life can sometimes feel overwhelming, especially when reports of devastating climate change and extreme weather continue to flood the news. That’s why whenever I come across simple solutions that can make my life easier as well as more eco-friendly, I jump at the chance to test them out.
Enter the Lavinrose Reusable Produce Bags that I recently picked up on Amazon. I was looking for a reusable option to bring with me to the grocery store as a replacement for the plastic bags that line the produce aisles, when this top-rated product showed up.
With a five star rating from more than 500 customer reviews, this inexpensive set of reusable bags seemed like just the solution I was looking for. It includes three sizes of bags that fit pretty much any kind of produce you can think of, including supersized bunches of kale that I’ve been known to keep on hand.
The mesh bags have an easy to close drawstring opening and can easily be thrown into the washing machine to keep them fresh after every use. Shoppers are also loving that the lightweight mesh is easy to see through, making checkouts a breeze.
“What I love most about these bags is how clearly you are able to see through them,” writes one reviewer. “The sizes are fantastic and having the weights printed on the tags is a great feature. So many people ask me about them when I am shopping.”
The bags come in two purchase options, with either a set of nine bags for $12, or a set of fifteen bags for $13. Having multiple bags in each size means I can leave some in the fridge, some in my grocery bags and some in my car for any last-minute trips to the store.
As an added bonus, the bags are BPA-free and made from durable polyester that stands up to years of use.
“Been using these types of bags for a couple years now,” raved another reviewer. “I really like the variety of sizes with these produce bags!”
Making the switch to sustainable options sooner rather than later can only benefit our planet, and with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau vowing to make single use plastics a thing of the past, now is as good a time as any to adopt a new habit.
