Today we’ve got something a little different for you – it’s not a baby or kids product – instead it’s a product to help us help our environment (which long term, will be something great that we’re doing for our little ones!).
Recently we participated in the July Plastic Free Month. It really made me stop and think about just how many ‘one time use’ plastics there. It was the War On Waste program that utterly astounded me (did you know that those ‘paper’ coffee cups can’t be recycled?!).
Anyway, we’ve been using material bags at the supermarket instead of plastic bags for a while now, but during July I stopped using the plastic produce bags. You know, the ones to carry 6 apples home (that you then put into your fruit bowl and throw the plastic bag away) or the ones to carry oranges or zuchinni. Instead, I’ve been using these great NON PLASTIC REUSABLE PRODUCE BAGS!
No more plastic bags to carry fruits and veggies! And They Lived Green stock these and we LOVE this idea. They’re called ‘Goodie Bags’
Goodie Bags are an alternative to all the plastic that you use while gathering your produce.
- They weigh only 16gms
- Stretch to fit 3kg
- Durable, washable fabric – tested by Oeko-Tex Standard 100
- Drawstring close
- Industrial thread, accessory climbing cord
- The bags are the same size 23cm x 28cm or (9” x 11”).
And They Lived Green have created funky, colourful bags that stretch to fit lots of produce (they have been known to have 3kgs of blueberries in one bag and at least 8 oranges in another!)
Cost – $23.50 for 3 bags that can be used over and over and over.. (see how you can save 15% below)
So we’ll be using these bags from now on in… July has been and gone and it’s important that we keep trying to eliminate all this unnecessary plastic where we can. After all, we’ve got our children’s future to think of!
