3B Bags save plastic at the market
Pretty every time I go to the farmers’ market with my canvass bags I forget to bring some smaller plastic bags from the grocery for tomatoes and other items and end up taking new tiffany plastic bags from the vendors.
And sometimes I worry about the bags I do bring. Maybe they aren’t so clean because they have food remnants or whatever. And those flimsy plastic bags used for fruit and veggies at the grocery don’t really seem washable for reuse.
So I gave a try to 3B Bags this weekend. They are reusable nylon bags with drawstrings. They are machine or sink washable and quick dry. And they’re see through so y tiffany ou can use them at the grocery and the checkout people can make out what’s inside.
The set of three (two small, one large) held all my veggies and cost $7.50. I washed them with a little dishsoap when I got home. Seemed like a good answer. tiffany I’m sure there are other types of bags out there for this purpose, but it felt good not to take any more disposable bags home with me.
I’ve also seen a bunch of cool reusable bags and stuff at the market. I saw this one to the left on Amazon for $39.99. Seems like I could strap that down to my bike rack and not squash my food.
Betty Basket Liners has some pretty funky liners that double as bags for those who already have a basket.
Anyone know of other products that are particularly useful, like a more crate like basket that my husband wouldn’t mind strapping to his bike?
