A great solution for eliminating single-use plastic when you are grocery shopping.

features:

  • 1 x natural fibre bag (absorbs excess moisture and restricts airflow) - for green beans, nuts, grains, bulk foods
  • 1 x rePETE solid weave bag (restricts air flow and locks in moisture) - for squash, broccoli, carrots and celery
  • 1 x rePETE mesh weave bag (allows ethylene* gas, nature's ripening agent, to escape) - for apples, oranges, onions and potatoes
  • Nest inside an apple pouch with handy carabiner to keep in your bag or car
  • Each bag measures 33cm x 43cm
  • Easy care - machine or hand wash, hang to dry.

you are making a difference:

  • Consuming less over time: Reusing a bag instead of using a new bag at the supermarket each time is good news for the environment.

tips to store your fruit & veg:

Fresh fruit and vegetables breathe at different rates - they are divided into 3 categories:

1. High breathers (store in mesh bags): broccoli, brussels sprouts, peas & snow peas, spinach etc

2. Medium breathers (store in mesh bags): beans, cabbage, cauliflower, fresh herbs, fresh shallots, green onions, greens, leeks, lettuce, ripe apples, citrus, ripe pears, peppers

3. Low breathers (store in solid bags): asparagus, beetroot, mushrooms, carrots, celery, cucumbers, turnips, zucchini, ripe berries, all other fruit not in the medium category.

Browse all our reusable bags.

Bonus tip! * Keep ethylene emitting produce separate from other produce to prevent over-ripening and premature spoilage.  The top five producers of ehtylene gas are cantaloupes (rockmelon), apples, apricots, pears and avocados.

Does the job

They do the job, but I personally prefer to buy natural produce bags. Seeing as produce bags need to be washed frequently, unfortunately, these will shred microplastics in the water each time - very very bad for the environment and our health (look it up). The mesh one also stains very very easily and looks grubby within a short time of regular use. It doesn't go away with washing it.

ChicoBag set of 3

It was the gorgeous way these bags were packaged which caught my eye -neatly and conveniently packaged in a cute little 'apple' was impossible to refuse. I can honestly report I use them every week to do my fruit and vege shop and they have been strong enough to carry a whole range of produce. I love the variety of different materials and haven't reached for a single-use plastic produce bag since.
