Flip and Tumble

For the past year or two, I have been using cloth shopping bags to transport my groceries from supermarket, farmer's market or fresh fruit stand, to home. The sheer amount of garbage that is not in our landfills, lakes and on city sidewalks is enormous. Too often we shy away from doing our small part since it's just too hard to see the overall picture. But cut out plastic bags and plastic water bottles, and it's not hard to miss how much we are doing. Imagine 50 years from now, the mountains of plastic that could either be in our landfills, or not. Reusable shopping bags make it easy on us to do our part. However, one thing that has bothered me, a veggie loving, fresh food preferring consumer, is the 10 clear produce bags that keep showing up in my shopping cart, week after week. Has this dilemma ever crossed your mind? Well, do I have a treat for you!

They are called Flip & Tumble Reusable Produce Bags. Each holds up to 8 pounds of produce and has a drawstring closure. The mesh bags allow for easy scanning at the store and washing at home, right in the bag! And at just $10.95 for 5 bags, it's affordable and I think, the next step in eco-friendly grocery shopping.

PS: It's a good idea to throw all fabric grocery bags in the wash from time to time. Juices from meats can leak and contaminate whatever goes into the bag next time you are out shopping.
