Sew your own reusable produce bags with mesh panels. Reusable and washable, these bags are great because they won’t add much weight to the scale at checkout and the cashier doesn’t have to open the bag to see what’s inside. Make several to take to the farmers’ market and give away cute sets to like-minded friends as gifts.
One benefit of the mesh panel produce bag is that it has enough structure to hold its shape even with heavy loads. The drawstring is the best part to keep all the goodies contained!
A completely different type of produce bag you might want to try is the recycled t-shirt bag. Enjoy!
