Reusable Produce Bags Review and Giveaway!~CLOSED~






Now that I have gotten very good about bringing reusable grocery bags with me to the store (almost) every time, I started to be bothered by the plastic bags in the produce section. So I went to Etsy in search of an alternative. There I found Johnsonfamilyzoo. Lisa, the "zookeeper",  makes super cute, reusable produce bags that come in a carry pouch. She uses great fabrics and color coordinated mesh to make being green fashionable and smart!

I took my produce bags down to the local farmer's market on Saturday and got a lot of pleasantly surprised looks from the vendors and other patrons. They liked the idea but hadn't seen it before! I then stopped at a local produce stand for a few items not found at the farmer's market and the store owner loved my bags! He said how much he hated handing out plastic bags all day long and wished there was an alternative. I told him that he should look into carrying these!

Did I mention how much these bags hold? A picture is worth a thousand words:
How many flimsy throw-away plastic bags would it take to hold that much produce?

I now keep my bundle of produce bags in the back of the car with my regular cloth grocery bags and I am quite pleased when I can do a week's worth of shopping and not bring home unnecessary plastic :)

Lisa at Johnsonfamilyzoo has generously agreed to give a set of reusable produce bags to one of my lucky followers! Here's how to win:
