Plethora of Produce Bags Freebie!

Lots-o-produce bags!
We've had a bunch of thin fabric come through Green Bag Lady lately. I pile it up, take it home & wash it. When the pile gets big, I make a slew of produce bags out of it. I have been busy lately, 92 bags busy. We are going to take lots of them to the Farmers Market here and encourage people to use them instead of the plastic ones, but I have 30 earmarked for you!

How about 10 sets of 3 for TEN of you? Sound grand? :)

PS, thank you for your lovely comments so far. To answer a question asked in the comments:


Q: Are the produce bags just for transport or can they be used in the frig?


A: They are for both, I keep my lettuce in them in the frig all the time. If I use them for this or for any wet produce, I wash them.

Oh what a great idea to go along with the tote shopping bags!

I would say the most common thing I purchase is bananas, even my little dog Mack, the Shih-tzu, gets a piece!

Thanks for this give-away and keep up the awesome work.

These are a great idea! It seems like I'm constantly going to the store just for produce since we go through it so quickly. We get bananas, mangos, avocados, tomatoes, spinach and berries most often. Thanks!

We always have a little bit of everything. The favorites to buy are apples right now since it is time to make apple butter.

I would be so excited to get a bag!!!! You have a great idea (I have been thinking of making some bags myself...so question...how much fabric do you use per bag).

I have and use one of your fabric totes, thank you. I'd love to win some produce bags, but at the risk of sounding foolish, are they for transport only of my celery, carrots, lettuce and onions, or do you leave the produce in them when they are stored in the fridge? I'd love to eliminate plastic produce bags.I wrap celery in foil. gbs88 at yahoo dot com

Our most-purchased item is bananas, but i never use a bag for them - haha. Next in line is plums/pears/nectarines. It seems my younger child is at a stage where he will only eat fruit, so we go through a lot each week. aehaas (at)gmail dot com

liz said...

I dont have one of your bags yet so i am crossing my fingers!! I share my produce with my pet rabbit so we go through a lot of cilantro, parsley, berries, chiles (for me!) avocado, eggplant and apples. :)

Hi GreenLady! Sadly I lost my green bag lady 9169 today! I used it for my work, I carried thousand of papers, taxes also gum and chocolates! I was robbed this afternoon, and now it's with the thieves! I hope finally it get to someone better than that kind of people.
So, I would be glad to have a new bag with me again.
Wish you and your family the best!

Oh, these would be great! I refuse to use plastic produce bags so I put all my stuff directly in the cart - which grosses me out thinking about what's on the cart!

We buy all kinds of produce as we are trying to eat more meatless meals. Beans, squash, peppers, bananas, apples...
