‘Reduce Your Plastic’ Series – What To Do About Single Use Produce Bags?

0 Comments

Hey Lovelies! I am starting a new series on my blog called ‘Reduce The Plastic,’ and you guessed it, it’s about how we can take small steps to reduce our plastic consumption, because it’s not good for us, or the planet!  Today I want to address single use produce bags. Yes, they are handy for gathering produce at the grocery store, and storing things at home in the fridge, but where do they go after? Luckily, if you live in Toronto we can recycle them, but still, it seems like a lot of unnecessary plastic use to me! So, I went on a mission to find some lightweight, reusable and washable produce bags. I found some on Amazon by a brand called Luckiplus and they are made from rPET fabric, which is recycled PET, and PET is polyethylene terephthalate (what our water and drink bottles are made from), and it’s a member of the polyester family! Who knew!

So here is your first tip on reducing your plastic:
