DIY - Make your own re-usable produce bags.
My family has been trying to reduce the use of plastics. One thing I have noticed is those plastic bags in the produce department get very little use. Put your produce in the bag, check out, get home and remove the produce, throw the bag away. I decided to make my own re-usable and washable produce bags. They are very lightweight so add very little to the cost of your produce purchase. I believe the small cost is worth the environmental impact all those plastic bags add to the landfill. I made a video of how to make your own produce bags. I started out with a mesh laundry bag from my local dollar store. You also need some cording or a thin shoelace, cotton yarn or durable ribbon for your drawstring. These bags can be hand sewn if you do not have a sewing machine. Watch the video for instructions.
