You probably know the phrase by heart: reduce, reuse and recycle.
As for your kitchen, we found eco-friendly and fan-favorite reusable produce bags that’ll make your cooking space much more sustainable. As a bonus, the bags are on sale right now at Amazon, too.
The Ecowaare Reusable Mesh Produce Bags are on sale for $10 on Monday, Feb. 24, down from the original price tag of $16. It’s a favorite of Amazon customers, with over 3,000 reviews and a 4.8-star rating.
Though the law does have exclusions including bulk fruits and vegetables, it’s a good incentive to rethink the single-use plastics that are part of your routine.
This Ecowaare set of 15 reusable produce bags includes five small, five medium and five large bags.
You won’t be left wondering what sized bag you’re grabbing from underneath your sink, either — each size has a different colored closure. The small bags have a yellow tag, the medium green and the large yellow.
Instead of using those throwaway green produce bags at the grocery store or a farmer’s market, you can opt for these bags that can keep using again and again. They’re meant to be almost transparent so that a cashier can still scan a barcode and you can actually see what’s inside.
One of our own HuffPost Finds editors owns these bags and keeps them in her tote bag when she’s out grocery shopping.
And if there’s a pepper that pops or a blackberry that bursts in these produce bags, they’re easy to clean. Just rinse them off with water or toss them in your washer. Our editor confirmed hers hold up to the washing machine, as well.
Plus, you can use these bags to organize distinctly non-produce products, too, like LEGO pieces that little ones leave all around and cookie cutters that you save for the holidays.
In a pinch, you could even use the larger bags for travel to organize your socks and undies. Think of them as more affordable versions of packing cubes.
In the end, going green doesn’t have to be complicated and you’ll be using these reusable produce bags again and again.
