The large reusable, certified organic, cotton mesh produce bags measure 12 x 17 inches and come individually packaged.
They are Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certified as organic and have the tare weight (weight when empty) printed on the label in grams, ounces, and pounds. These are ideal for bulk bin buying and every day grocery shopping, and can be easily washed (some shrinkage may occur).
Why choose organic produce bags?
Plastic bags are damaging to the environment. Americans alone use 100 billion plastic bags each year, which requires 12 million barrels of oil to produce. By creating less plastic bags (and plastic in general), we are using less fossil fuels. We are also reducing the amount of plastic that ends up in landfills and oceans, where they kill around 100,000 marine animals every year.
A Note Regarding Packaging:
The reusable produce bags come wrapped in a label which is made from recycled paper and can be recycled in your curbside recycling bin.
