Replaces disposable single-use plastic produce bags
3 sets uniquely designed to be paired with specific produce
Designed to maintain optimal humidity and air flow
Each bag works well for small or large loads
Introducing the ChicoBag produce stand collection - three sets of reusable produce bags uniquely designed to be paired with specific produce. Each bag maintains optimal humidity and air flow for fresh, crisp vegetables and fruit.
The Produce Stand Collection consists of these produce bags sets:
The Hemp-Cotton Blend 3 Pack is designed for green beans, nuts, grains and bulk food items. The fabric is a 70 percent hemp, 30 percent cotton blend and is designed to absorb excess moisture and restrict airflow
The rePETe™ 3 Pack is great for squash, broccoli, carrots and celery because it restricts airflow and locks in moisture.
The rePETe™ Mesh 3 Pack is ideal for apples, oranges, potatoes, onions and allows ethylene gas, nature's ripening agent, to escape
Design & Functionality The Produce Stand collection by ChicoBag is the first reusable line of produce bags specifically designed to maintain optimal humidity and air flow keeping fruits and vegetables fresh and healthy. They replace single-use produce plastic bags.
Sustainability ChicoBags are another tool to help you cut down on disposable plastic & paper bags. Made to last and designed to be reused over and over, using them can help eliminate thousands of throwaway bags over the course of their lifetime. Plus, recycled PET is a sustainable path for plastic which means fewer bottles in landfills. Optimal freshness for your fruit & vegetable means you help reduce produce waste by extending the life of your produce.

Country of Origin ChicoBags are manufactured with care in China.
I ordered a set for a cousin & one for myself. The picture on line made the set look quite a bit larger than it actually is, which could have made it kind of bulky, but the smaller size is handier for carrying. The bags are as large as I expected, they just fold very small to fit in the cute apple bag. Then it can be attached to purse, or put in other reusable bags for carrying.
I haven't used mine yet, but it's in my car ready to be used.
I did not expect these bags to work as well as they did. I originally thought they would be good simply for shopping and bringing produce home. However the diferent bag types really do help keep various foods fresher longer.
I love that the bag fits in its own little bag and is very light. The clip is great so that I can attach the bag to my keys or my pants. I do with the handles were configured so one was on one side of the bag and the second handle on the other side (opens like a purse) instead of like a tank top style. I would like the ability to open it while still resting on my shoulder. I also think the bag could be a bit bigger. I love the bright orange peel color and the fact that it is made of recycled material.
I have the solid bags, and I love them. Everything I put in them has stayed fresh. I got the solid version for produce that's wet in the store, so that it doesn't get everything else wet, and these work perfectly for that purpose. When I put them on the checkout counter I scrunch them down so that the cashier can see what's inside and it doesn't matter that they're not see-through.
These are very convenient for fruits, veggies & bulk items (the cotton/hemp ones). Sturdy construction, ample size, and they fold up neatly between uses. Store checkers like that they have the tare weight printed on the tag. Two thumbs up.
I bought these for presents to encourage people not to use plastic bags. Since this package had three different types of bags, I thought it would be a good starter set. The 'APPLE' holder is handy because it has a fastener that clips on your shopping bag to keep the produce bags handy and from being misplaced. A very attractive and useful gift - I'm pleased with my purchase!
I have used them for my produce and have had very good comments from other shoppers, and checkers, they are a good size for my produce, and i like the fact that i can see what is in the bag and also wash them after use. Very usefull, they also fit into my purse,so i can not forget it.
