Last month we introduced these fun repurposed t-shirt bags. They make fun shopping bags and are also easy to grab and throw a lunch or some goodies for the day into. They have proved to be a very popular item, and priced at just $5 each are affordable!
One of the projects I worked on this Sunday was a new line of ultra light weight nylon netted produce bags. These are some neat little bags. The netting is tight enough to keep the produce from poking through but loose enough to allow a lot of air circulation for your veggies to breath. They are small, but you can comfortably fit a lot more than you would think. They are also super light weight and will practically add no weight to the scale.
This is a trial product for us. So I only prepared a small-ish selection of size small bags. If they do well then I will invest in the materials to carry a larger selection of sizes.
The size small bags we have currently available are excellent for herbs, mushrooms, small amounts of large produce like peaches, squash and tomatoes.
These bags are great for picking up produce at the market, or grocery store in place of plastic bags. They are also better for storage than plastic bags because they allow your produce to breath.
They are easy to wash off in the sink, dry quickly and fold down to a minimal size for between use, try one of our colorful Nylon Netted Produce Bags.
Reusable Cloth Produce Bags ~ Our reusable cloth produce bags have been a popular holiday gift for the past two years.
We have a few still available, but the pickings are getting low. *We are sold out of Smalls and only have one Set left (pictured below)
Small – $3
Medium – $4
Large – $5
Set of 3 (one of each – S,M,L) – $10
When shopping, replace thin plastic produce bags at the grocery store or farmers market and fill theses stronger bags with lettuce and vegetables or pile in apples and potatoes. They won’t rip with heavy items piled in them and unlike plastic bags, these cloth bags breath, so vegetables can be stored in these bags in the fridge or pantry for longer periods of time. They also double as reusable lunch bags.
*Cosmic Earth produce bags are made out of unbleached cotton with all seams surged (this adds durability, and prevents the edges of the fabric from fraying with use) and have a functional drawstring top. They are simple to clean and can be tossed in the washer and dryer.*
Tomorrow is the last official market of 2011, BUT we are having a BONUS market next Saturday on Christmas Eve. Finish your last minute holiday shopping, or stop by for some fun with family and friends.
