I make my own yogurt. I like to drain some of the whey to make a thicker yogurt or even make yogurt cheese. I used 2 bags one inside the other and the yogurt produced by a half gallon of milk easily fit inside. I like that the bags are polyester so they are very easy to clean and sanitize. I can reuse these over and over. I almost never reused the cheesecloth. I know this isn't what the bags were designed for but it really worked well for me.
This completes my collection of reusable produce bags. The first 5 I bought weren't enough. These bags are well made, wash well, can easily be seen through during checkout. I'm happy to stop using the disposable plastic bags the supermarket provides since the food is only in the bags for half an hour or so before the bags are discarded.
The babc just arrived and I used two of them this morning. One held green onions and the other was for avocados. Clerks and other shoppers were very interested.
These bags are great for in-store purchases and durable. Plan to buy more in the future!
These bags are great and I am constantly being asked where I got them. They don’t make your fruits and veggies sweat like plastic bags, they’re washable and they only weigh was the normal tare is on the scale.
Great buy - I am super happy with them.
I use my produce bags every time I shop. They are just what I was looking for in a reusable produce bag. I rinse after using and hang to dry. Quick and easy.
These are awesome produce bags. Since their almost "see through", the cashier totally appreciates the fact that she/he doesn't have to open the bag to see the produce or item number. I bought (2) sets. Need more due to our large produce purchases. I bought the largest size. So easy to clean, too. I do NOT regret my purchase of these reusable produce bags at all!
After using these bags for at least a couple years and giving more to family members as gifts, I am still happy with them. The only "damage" they've sustained is a little discoloration if I leave some produce in them. I must admit that they don't keep foods fresh for a long storage in the fridge, but it usually hasn't been a problem.
These bags work very well. Not as see through as I would like because codes on fruit cannot be seen and have to be removed when checking out. I keep them on a caribiner and clip them to the cart when shopping and bought reusable Velcro electronic cord organizers that I secure to the bag side tab for extra security. Works great!
I've been using these for about 9 months now, and they are awesome! Lightweight, sturdy and machine washable. I was worried that heavier, "poky" produce like corn on the cob or sweet potatoes might rip the bags...but so far, no problems. The only downside is that the bags won't keep your produce fresh as long as a traditional plastic bag. But I just re-use plastic bags for my more sensitive produce.
This is my second purchase of these bags because they're great! I had a few raised eyebrows at the store the first few times I used them, but then I remind people that those plastic bags fill up landfills, it gets them thinking. Hopefully I'm helping to spread the green word.
I always hated throwing out the plastic produce bags, but I didn't have any ideas for them. I love using these! They are lightweight and the draw string is perfect. I keep these in my Baggu storage bag with my shopping bags. Only down fall is you can't read the codes, but that's a VERY minor setback and well worth it!!
I have used these bags on several trips to the grocery store. I never pack my purchases into plastic bags at check-out but still end up with fist-fulls of smaller plastic bags for loose produce items. It is so nice to be consistent, bypassing plastic throughout the store. The bags are large enough to accommodate any and all items that would otherwise go into the tear-off plastic bags - bags which would end up in landfills. The produce can easily be transferred into heavier zip-lock bags at home (bags which can be washed and reused over and over).
I love the convenience of the bags the only thing is that sometimes it's hard for cashiers to see the codes on produce.
I can bag my produce in these lovely reusables rather than A- the store's plastic ones or B-putting them on the nasty conveyor belt! Love them! Good job.
I have only been to the grocery store once since I received my new bags, but was glad to have them during my trip! They are easy and convenient to use, and there's no wasting the plastic bags in the produce aisle! Washing instructions are simple. I am so glad I found these bags!
The flip & tumble bags are a great way to store my vegetables. Moisture does not get trapped inside unlike plastic bags. I am very happy with this product.
These are very nice and keep the produce fresh. I almost didn't believe it. They are really big and hold a lot, as you can tell from the pictures. Very satisfied with this product.
They're a great size and very handy for the farmer's market. I get lots of compliments when I use it, and they certainly do cut down on those annoying plastic bags!
I've been trying to move my family towards more re-usable and sustainable practices and this was just another step in the process. I love taking these bags to the grocery store and filling them up with fresh produce! It sure beats trying to get those slippery bags off the rolls and they usually end up splitting open anyway.
Here's a few Pro's:
Easy to use with a drawstring handle
Hold a lot of produce (apples, lettuce, peppers, etc.)
Small enough to carry in my purse so I don't forget them
Don't retain moisture on the produce that I pick up
Cashier was easily able to see through the bags to get the code
Can be used to store items in the fridge for easy identification
None although I think I have to get more since I usually buy more than 5 different types of produce in a visit.
I would also like some that are a bit taller for my herbs that I buy.
I bought some for my Mom too and she's been loving them.
THanks for a great product!
We just received 2 sets of these produce bags and tried them for the first time yesterday. Our biggest concern was whether the self adhesive bar-code labels that we print in our supermarket's produce and bulk sections would adhere to the bags and subsequently be able to be removed. Happily, the labels held well enough to make it to the checkout and peeled off easily at home, leaving no residue. We don't envision ever using disposable plastic bags again and will likely buy more of these as gifts.
Love these flip & tumble bags! Not only are they good for rinsing produce, but I used one to rinse some rice. The mesh is fine enough to keep the grains from going through, while the water did the rinsing.
These are nothing glamorous, but they serve their purpose beautifully. No more flimsy produce bags at the grocery store! I keep them in my main shopping backpack so they're always on hand.
I use these for storing socks in my drawers, also I have some specifically for air drying fresh herbs from the garden
I love my set of bags so I bought a set for my friend for her birthday.
We bought these bags and have loved them from the start. No more plastic produce bags for us. They have been great. Thank you.
I love these bags, no more ripped plastic produce bags which caused my fruit to roll out onto the floor. The bags are sturdy and easy for the cashiers to handle when ringing up my fruits and vegetables.
I hate those thin plastic produce bags that always seem to find their way to our house. These are such a great alternative to using those. Love that you can rinse the fruits/veggies right in the bag. A great buy!
I really like the quality of the produce bags. I think a "visible" bag would be better. the cashier had a difficult time seeing the number sticker on the produce due to the tight weave of the fabric. But, otherwise they are very sturdy and good quality.
These are great for produce shopping. I have had cashiers comment on how easy they are to use- product can still be seen and weighed easily. It's a great way to cut down on plastic bags in the produce isles.
Absolutely love these bags, even got some for my niece - I always fight to open those plastic bags and they often break. These are easy to fill, close and unload at home....perfect and they can just be thrown into the laundry....good product. Thank you,
We previously used the "reuseit Produce and Snack Bag, Organic Cotton Net" bags, but weren't satisfied b/c it was harder to see through them (including for grocery clerks ringing you up) and after using awhile they get kind of nasty (I later saw here that there's a warning on it that b/c of natural fibers mold can grow).
These new ones are great. Love that they are truly see-through. Sturdy construction. Drawstring closes & opens easily. Once they're used and you're ready to store them for the next time, they scrunch up enough that they don't take up too much room (though our old cotton net ones take up less room, that's their only positive). Size is large enough to accommodate most produce.
If you want some produce bags for larger things like lots of bananas/big heads of lettuce, I suggest Blue Avocado bags, size=large -- they look a little different and have a black-and-white trim which actually is better so that you can easily & quickly tell in the store which ones are the large ones.
i have been looking for fruit/veggie bags like these for a long time and these are perfect! they hold a lot of fruit (8 apples with room for one or two more!) are easy to clean and once you get into the habit of grabbing them before you head out, you are all set. I have 10 altogether for a family of 5 and i haven't had to use a plastic bag at the store in nearly a month! Sometimes the checker is willing to let you have two types of veggies in the same bag and they will just take them out to weigh them. I would highly recommend these to anyone who is looking to drastically reduce their plastic bag consumption . .. :)
These are good replacements for those awful plastic grocery produce bags. I pack them with my bigger totes and they're ready to go when I shop.
Great to have something for all the produce we purchase and at a great price. We usually buy in larger quantities though, so it would be nice to have different sized bags in a packet. Washable and storable and very convenient.
I'm so glad reusit offers these bags for produce! I bought 3 sets of 5 because I buy lots of produce.
I hardly ever bring home plastic bags now that I got these. I'm thinking of getting these as gifts.
I have used these bags several times both at a "traditional" grocery store and also at my health co-op. The bags are very strong and hold even large items like collards and kale as well as heavy items like apples & onions. I always ask the people checking me out what they think of these produce bags and they like them. The bags are easy to see the numbers through and with the pull string you don't need bag ties.
I plan to order another set because they are also good to store items
in the refrigerator as air passes through the fabric so produce doesn't
I feel great not using the plastic bags for produce. I also use these bags for nuts and bulk snacks. They are easy to wash and hold a vast amount of product!
They are good quality, easy to see through and machine washable. I get asked about them almost every time I shop.
Great size, clean up well, an all-round good produce bag. Just wish I had gotten more.
I took these bags to the farmers market instead of reusing plastic bagslike I usually do. They are nice because they let the produce breathe and they don't hold in heat and moisture on a warm day.
There is not much I hate more than to use those thin plastic produce bags at the grocery store. So I thought I'd give these a try. I LOVE THEM. They are a little difficult to read the stickers on the produce through, but I just weight and print a sticker to put on the outside of them and they stick just fine. Both times I used them the clerks asked about them and said how nice they were :)
These bags are lightweight and attractive. I get asked about them frequently and am proud not to be using plastic anymore.
These are great, big enough to fit alot of produce and fold small for easy transportation. It feels really good to not have to waste so many plastic bags when doing my grocery shopping.
Flimsy plastic grocery store produce bags are nearly impossible to reuse; these were the first item I purchased from Reuseit.com. I have ten Flip&Tumble bags. They wash perfectly; I use hot water and dry in the dryer, contrary to the label instructions, and I have not had a problem. I am asked repeated at the grocery store about them.
Love these produce bags. The drawstring closure keeps the contents secure, and the mesh is fine enough to keep the produce in the bag, while still sheer enough to see through (so the cashier doesn't have to open). They wash really well, and have become nice and soft. I also like to store my fruit and veggies in the fridge right in the bags. Have just ordered a second set.
I was very pleased with both the quality of these bags and the fact that the cashier can see what is in them, without touching your produce (I had issues in the past with canvas bags). These are a great size. The only thing that annoys me is when you pull the bag closed, the drawstring is very long and gets tangled when you have a full fridge. Other than that - I'm happy with my purchase.
I thought I was reviewing Baggu. Haven't used my produce bags yet, but happy to have them.
Love the baggu. I used them for my wedding as favors for my close friends and family, filling the bags with treats to make them feel welcome.
I bought a set and loved them so much, bought two more sets. Use them daily! My produce lasts much longer in the fridge, and I like ditching the plastic! Win-win all around.
These are great. They are easy to use, I love the drawstring, and it's easy to see in to see what the product is. I've used it for produce and for bulk foods and it works great for everything. One of them got caught on something in the washer though and the drawstring broke, but i just tied the ends in a knot and it's okay now.
Great set of reusable bags. Construction seems durable and as a great alternative to plastic produce bags, they get the job done. My only complaint is that produce numbers can not be read through the mesh unless they are REALLY big. Minor inconvenience for cashiers to open each bag. I open each bag a little when I set them on the conveyor belt, with one sticker plainly visible.
These are great for the farmer's market! Just put your greens right into the bags. Later, at home, it's easy to rinse them and dry them in the bags. The material looks and feels great.
These bags are great to use based on the size, cleaning, and storage. I am a bit concerned on how they are holding up to the weight of apples and oranges. The heavier fruits are stretching the seams. I have enjoyed how they go right from the store to the fridge. I have two sets and definitely could use more.
The bags are so much more than I anticipated, I may get some for friends and family...I'll convert them yet!
The bags work just as they should. I am glad that I bought them. Very useful product, and far better for the world than the throwaway/recyclable plastic bags for produce that supermarkets and grocery stores have for customer use.
These bags are amazing! Sturdy and really help to reduce a LOT of waste! I use them for fruits, veggies and for scooping stuff like trail mix from the bulk bins at grocery stores. Almost every time I use them someone asks where I got them from. LOVE THEM!
These are wonderful bags for produce. They're clear enough that the grocery clerk can tell what they are and even read the produce code. I also use them for other things, like when I pick up my prescriptions or other small items. I ended up buying a second set as I often buy more than 5 items of produce at a time.
These bags are wonderful, and a great value to boot. I looked at many different produce bags, and loved how these were translucent. This makes it easy for the checkout person to scan the items inside. And the price is perfect.
I bought a couple of sets of these for me and a couple of sets for my Mom. Not only do these bags eliminate the need for plastic produce bags, they are easier to deal with at the store! The checker can see right through them to get the produce code and when I get home the vegetables that need to breath can just stay in the bag until I use them! They clean up really easy as well. They will also work well as ditty bags when camping and to keep things organized while traveling. :D
Well made and just the right size. These come in handy for many uses besides just for storing produce. I carry my cloth napkins and utensils to work in this bag placed inside my "big tote" bag, and then carry the dirties back home to wash. They was well and are just really cute :)
My boyfriend and I love these bags! We use our cloth bags religiously whenever we go grocery shopping, and we were looking for some way to re-use bags for produce as well. One friend told us just to wash and reuse the plastic produce bags, but that was such a pain, and the bags tended to rip.
These reusable produce bags are perfect for us! We take them along with our cloth grocery bags, and because they're mesh and see-through, cashiers don't have a problem ringing us up. Plus, cleaning them is easy.
We would highly recommend this product.
I've been using these for a couple weeks and they are exactly what I was looking for. The bags are a good compromise size for large and small produce. I haven't had any runs or tears, even from pokey stems on pears and apples. The drawstrings work great. The bags have a heft in the fabric and stitching that make them feel they will last for quite some time.
I love them...I have only used them once since receiving them, but I thinks it's great not having a bunch of plastic bags to get rid of! I'm thinking of ordering another set.
My friend showed me the bags I purchased. I was so impressed that I bought a set for myself as well as each of my two daughters-in-law. I guess that tells you how impressed I initially was with your product. In fact, I had two women ask me about them when I was in the produce section of the grocery store and gave them your web address.
I love the Produce Bags!!! I had some from before and ordered more so that I always had enough for my shopping trips. I love the fact that I don't have to deal with the plastic bags anymore!!! I also get compliments on them from the check-out clerks. They love them too!!!
I use these bags for all my produce. I also use them for bulk bin goods (rice, beans, etc) and then transfer to a storage container when I get home. They are easy to wash & resist stains (raspberry juice washed right out.) I feel good not wasting all those plastic bags, which I just end up throwing away once I get home.
I love these so much I came back for a 2nd set. I find myself buying more veggies and fruit to use them all during my shopping trip which is great motivation. I get compliments all the time and love how they are washable and see through. I always hated the plastic ones provided at the store. Much stronger bags here people! Love!
Nice drawstring, mesh is seems durable and not prone to pulls, most cashiers able to see item through mesh
I love these bags, they are very useful when buying produce at the market or store and you need to keep them seperate!
I keep my reusable produce bags with my reusable grocery bags. There are several things I like about them:
2. Color coding
3. See through mesh
4. Easy to use
5. Easy to clean
6. Good value for the price
I am very happy with these bags, glad I ordered ten of them.
Appreciate the alternative to plastic produce bags! The material is sturdy enough for apples and other heavy fruits and vegetables and washes up well. My only suggestion would be some type of closure mechanism on the draw string.
I really like these bags. They are the same size as the plastic bags you can get at the store, so there is plenty of room for all of your produce choices. I love that you can toss these in the wash with your towels or run them through the dishwasher when you wash your dishes, so no added water waste! I highly recommend these:)
I've had these bags for years--always get lots of interest @ in produce & farmer markets. Lightweight but strong; I've also had good luck with washing them. highly recommend.
This is a great product. When I used bags at my local grocery store the clerk was impressed and asked where I purchased the item. Of course I shared the information. I also purchased some for my co-workers and they were very pleased with the item.
These are great for avoiding extra packaging,even the recyclable kind, which I've been trying to cut down. As they're super light and you can easily see the contents, they're easy to use at the grocery store as well as the farmer's market - the product can be identified without having to open the bag and they hardly register on the scale so no problem with taring.
I just got these so I can't speak to how well they hold up over time, but so far I love them, and they certainly look like a sturdy product that will last. They hold a generous amount of produce, or whatever you may use them for, and I love not coming home from shopping with dozens of plastic bags!
Handy option to avoid those plastic produce bags.
Great, will enjoy using them.
These bags are awesome. I HATE those plastic produce bags at the store and they always are such a mess in my drawer in the fridge. These bags are not only neater but they are of course earth-friendly! Even the checkers at the store commented how cool they were. They are able to see what is in the bags to ring you up, and they are so nice and neat in my veggie drawer at home. I want to get more!
These bags are great! Perfect size to bring home a variety of fruits and vegetables without using those plastic bags in the grocery store. With the different colors they are even great to organize your produce.
I have a 'bag of bags', an attractive tote that I keep by the front door, filled with my re-usable grocery store bags. I added several of these produce bags and I take them with me on every trip to the store. The checkout folks seem to have no trouble reading the codes through the mesh. They are large enough to hold a head of leaf lettuce or about 10 apples. Love them!
These reusable produce bags eliminate the need to bring home yet more plastic! These perfectly sized bags go from store to fridge - breathable micro-mesh so no mess but your produce stays fresh & organized; machine washable; and drawstring keeps things from falling out. Plus the checkers can see through the bag to ring you up. I bought 2 sets so I'd always have enough. Worth every penny when you consider you will reduce use of plastic produce bags by the hundreds. These bags are well-made, and cute too! Perfect!
These bags are the right size for our fruits and veggies. They keep our refrigerator organized, and the only thing we have to remember is to bring them to the store with us.
I have used these bags at my local grocery store. They are really nice for those of us who are trying to be "green". I have replaced using the produce plastic bags with these. They are lightweight so they do not effect the weight of produce that much. Really great bags.
I like these because they are big enough to hold items like spinach. The cashier always
comments on how "nice" it is that I use these. I want to yell "People get on board. It's easy."
I'm back to buy another set of these great bags...
- For closure, I tighten the string, make two bunny ears, and tie a bow; this has worked great and is fairly easy to untie later.
- They've held up great going thru the washer & dryer
- They're great for produce that won't dry out in the fridge
- But I use them most often for storage as a replacement for large ziploc bags! They're perfect because you can see the contents. Doll clothes, shoes, art supplies, etc.
- I use one for delicates in the washer - perfect
these are great at the farmers market, where they always seem to want to give me plastic bags. also works at the bulk store for dry goods.
I am enjoying using these produce bags. When I need to I just wash them in a lingerie bag. It is so nice not bringing home more plastic produce bags. The cashiers seem to be doing fine with them as far as seeing the produce stickers on my fruit through these bags. I have also been just leaving my produce in these bags and throwing in the refrigerator when I get home and it does just fine.
These produce bags are great! I shop at a farmers market for all of my produce and I love having these bags instead of using several plastic bags each time I shop. Several people have stopped me and asked where I got the bags. The size of the bags are good, I wish there was a large size for items such as corn and other large produce, but otherwise these bags are great.
I love these bags- use them for everything! Easy to clean and I just store them with my reusable grocery bags.
These bags are very handy for produce. If the produce has just had a shower some water may leak through, but still better than the plastic bags. I can either wash them by hand in the sink or toss them in the washing machine and lay out to dry.
These bags are excellent, I love the concept, they work great, they are awesome! I will definitely be buying more!
These arrived exactly as they were described.
Washed once with product directions and was pleased, although one did develop a slight snag.
Useful and attractive way to replace plastic produce sacks.
Thank you for such a great product. The merchants like them very much as do I. When soiled they was up nicely.
These bags are a good size & they seem quite hardy. I used mine to get some apples today- I was able to fit 5 apples with room for a couple more. I like the fact that they come as a set of 5- I was hesitant at first, if I didn't like them I'd have 5 unused bags sitting around. Having 5 means I always have a bag on hand.
I've had these types of bags before, but the Flip & Tumble are definitely my favorite. Easy to use, wash, and very durable. I recommend getting a variety of sizes. I've even used two bags for smaller food like oats and granola, works pretty well.
I use my produce bags whenever I go to the local farmers market, where other customers but particularly the vendors love them, because they cut down on plastic. I throw them in the laundry once a week, and they're good to go at the next market.
This is by far my favorite purchase from resuseit.com! These bags are perfect for shopping and the see-through mesh design allow the cashier to quickly see the product and/or the sticker label for pricing. These bags are large enough to hold whole ears of corn and are very sturdy. They are easy to clean in the washing machine (I use a lingerie bag to keep them together) or in the kitchen sink. I highly recommend them!
I have yet to use them as I seem to not be able to remember them - would be great if they came in a carry sack. Good quality - will be interesting to see how they hold up in the wash.
Just like all the other reviews, I love these bags. Just the right size and durable as well. The little colored tags are cute, and I feel proud to use them in the grocery store.
I. Love. These. Bags.
I always feel guilty when I buy my produce because of the reusable produce bags, but they don't reuse very well and when I leave them in my shopping bags to reuse another time, my grocery store would always throw them out.
The bags came and are cute, the pull ties are easy to use, nice big openings, they held 4 jumbo artichokes easily, and allow my veggies to breathe- I left my squash in them in the fridge and they were just fine.
I receive many compliments on them and they are handy at the farmers' markets because I can get my fruit and veg and just carry the bags themselves over my shoulder- I don't have to put them inside other bags. Very good deal, nice and sturdy, breathable, great value. HIGHLY recommend.
I got a set for me and one for a friend for our trip to the farmer's market. They work well and love the mesh material because you can see what's in the bag. Several cashiers have said how easy it was for them too. Would highly recommend
I love these bags. I bought a pack of 5 and already told a few friends and family members about them (and in turn they purchased them and love them too!).
I already use reusable grocery bags so using reusable produce bags completely fit into my routine. Plus plastic bags rip from produce sometimes and your hand sticks to the static in the plastic bags when sticking your hand in to pull out veggies. These bags feel really nice to use, carry and store food. Plus you arent wasting plastic of course!
Purchased some of these bags for a reunion at the beach. I gave everyone a bag for shell collecting and they were a great success. You can rinse the sand from the shells without losing even the smallest shell.
In the supermarket, the colors actually help remind me to get different colors of fruits and vegetables (red for apples, yellow for oranges, green for baby bok choy, purple for purple potatoes, etc.) So far I've used four out of five. I keep them ready to go inside my shopping bag when they're not in my regrigerator/on my counter. The bags get stained when I wash berries in them, but the stain comes out just by rinsing. So far I haven't needed to wash them.
These are very lightweight and useful. You can carry one in your purse and they'll do in a pinch if you need a bag as well. I love that you can rinse the produce right in the bag, and I even use them in the top rack of my dishwasher to hold small items from falling through. One got very red after I used it picking strawberries, but it came right out in the wash.
I love these bags, I can see my produce in them and stick them right in the fridge if I am getting something in bulk like beans or brussel sprouts. Hopefully other people see me using them and I create a trend!
They hold a lot and wash/dry just fine. They don't hold the plastic produce weight labels very well, but we need to get rid of those anyway, right! Keep up the great work to keep our environment viable!
I like these bags so far. I tried to put fresh corn in one, and wished that it was a little bigger so it could close over the top of the corn, but at least the bag wasn't ripping as soon as I put a few ears in, like those awful plastic bags! The cashiers still open the bags to check the numbers--I guess that's just easier than trying to read through it for the numbers, but no one seems to be complaining. A great little fine mesh bag!
These were a pleasant surprise. They're pretty compact, so I keep them tucked away in my purse. They're very easy to see through, making it easy for the cashiers. But, if concerned, you could always fold back the tops after placing on counter or conveyor belt, thus revealing the fruit/veggies inside (but I haven't found it necessary). One customer commented on how the ties don't stay closed. So far, I've been lucky and haven't had this problem, but there are different types of fasteners (ex: Dritz® Cord Stops, approx $2.50 for 2) that can be purchased at a fabric store and would work perfectly to alleviate this problem. I highly recommend these!
I love these bags. Everyone who sees me use them asks me about them. Cashiers have often told me how cool they are. They don't add any extra weight, the cashier can usually see the code right through the mesh, they clean up beautifully. What's not to love? I even use them for my bulk items like rolled oats, beans, etc. I tend to use a twist tie to make sure they're shut tightly in that case, but they work perfectly. Because I was trying to cut down on plastic, I ended up not bagging much of my produce. This way there's no guilt and everything stays nicely contained. This isn't usually the sort of thing I'd give as a gift, but I am going to buy a few sets of these to give away to people who admire them.
We're trying to ditch plastic as much as possible, and these are a great alternative. We use these for produce and some bulk items, like nuts and raisins.
I did not realize how many plastic bags I was using from the grocery store for fruit, until I got these. Its a good feeling to carry these. My fruit was suffocating!
These bags are soft and nice and large enough to hold my produce. The only problem I have found is that the mesh is thick and sometimes the grocery clerks don't like them because they can't see through them and have to open them to see the number. Most clerks already know the number of the produce however and it is easy to see what product is in the bag. They are easy to clean and dry fast. I haven't used them to wash produce in, just to carry the produce to home, then I transfer my veggies to the Ever fresh green bags which work like they say! Of course this makes sense to stop throwing away those plastic produce bags that are barely used then thrown away.
I was looking for bags like this and these fit the bill. I use them each time at the market and get comments on them each time. I use reusable shopping bags and was happy to add these to my green collection!
We really enjoy using these bags.
I take these with me to the farmers market and am always complemented on how nice they are. I love these and the fact that they are washable makes them even better!
I'm very happy with these produce bags; no more plastic ones for me! The cashiers can easily see through them to code in the proper numbers. They are very lightweight so I don't have to worry about them adding extra weight/cost to my produce as well.
I am very thankful for these bags for my produce shopping needs. So easy to pick out my product, the cashier gives me a quick look but has not issues with reading the codes on the produce and great for putting into the sink with a veggie wash. The only setback is when the grocery store has soggy produce. They have proved to be durable so far and can hold more than just produce. Recommended!
Okay, so they are great for fruits and veggies, but I have used them at the store to toss in a few freshly baked bagels. I like how they are machine washable. Store clerks have not reacted negatively to my use of them, so I presume they have no problem identifying the items inside. They are spacious enough for carrots, and sturdy enough to fill. The drawstrings are sturdy, and I can sling several over my wrist while shopping in the produce department of the store.
Love these bags!
These work great and are a perfect alternative to plastic produce bags - just keep them inside your regular grocery bags and you're set.
I love these bags! They're very sturdy (my daughter filled one up with blocks last week to go on a 'picnic' and it survived). They're also easily washable. I've had several veggies go moldy and mushy in them, and they washed up beautifully - no stains. I also love that I can wash my veggies in them and that I can see through them for easy checkout at the store, and for easy cooking.
Purchased these for shopping at the produce stand. They are fantastic. They hold a lot and you can see through them well enough to tell what's inside. Would definately recommend them.
I've used other produce bags and these are by far my favorite. The are perfectly sized so I don't find myself cramming items to fit. They are light weight but strong enough to hold heavy items like apples. These are always getting compliments whenever I use them.
These are great bags. They're slick with the little color tags, have a very easy open and close top, can be seen through easily at check out, and are fine enough for most bulk bin items like rice and quinoa (just knot the top, or use a clothes pin or other fastener). I originally got a set of 5, but found they were often left in use holding things in my fridge. I just ordered two more sets of 5. It's an investment but I love having an abundance of them, always on hand. Cons: these aren't going to keep greens from wilting. Probably obvious, but use a well sealed crisper drawer or other means to maintain moisture on greens. Also, as with any mesh fabric, the seam is a bit weaker than a solid fabric, so go easy packing it full with root veggies if you want the bag to last.
My mom had us make a list this past Christmas of things we actually wanted/needed. Great idea! I put these produce bags on there. I have some of the hemp bags, but because you can't see through it can be a pain once you get to the check out. I got a pack of five to try them out and now I'm back for more because five is just not enough, especially this time of year with all the yummy produce. I'll be getting some for my mom too. Also these are pretty big. I thought I may end up getting some of the larger ones, but haven't had a need yet. Great item! To those that say they no longer have plastic bags for cleaning their cat litter boxes...STOP PUTTING BIODEGRADABLE STUFF IN PLASTIC BAGS TO THROW AWAY!
A couple of months before I ordered these, I was using some reusable net produce bags (think small laundry bags), which were ok, but definitely not as good as these. These bags are the perfect size, pack small, are very durable, and make it easy for the cashier to figure out what you're buying. I've tried all kinds of fruit and veg in these bags (except navel oranges) and they work really really well. I've recommended these to many family members as well as coworkers and curious shoppers in the grocery store. They are more than worth it!
These bags are great for produce or bulk bins! They don't weigh much, which is good if you shop somewhere that can't take the tare weight off. The cashier can see the items which makes check out easy. And the holes are small enough that almost anything that isn't a powder won't fall out. I regularly use mine for nuts, granola and rice. I recommend them to anyone wanting to reduce their use of the little plastic produce bags!
These bags are perfect to replace plastic produce bags. What I like about these is cashiers can see through them to get the skew numbers of produce if they need to. They also are great for farmers markets. They are very lightweight, durable and easy to clean.
I kept putting off buying them, not really sure why. I finally gave in and bought two sets. I gave one away to a friend as a thank you and I love my set, only issue is now I want another set. I agree a set with maybe one or two larger bags would be perfect but for now these are awesome. Can't rave about them enough. strong, see through, sturdy and easy to wash.
The Flip and Tumble produce bags are wonderful! They are strong, hold a lot of bulk food or produce, and the cashiers love it because they can see what is in the bag. They have fun colorful tags on them so you can tell them apart and they are hip! Great bags!
These lovely little bags are just the ticket for reducing the use of plastic produce bags and twist ties. They are well made and it is easy to identify the contents. They are also very light weight and compact making them easy to tuck into my purse. I am proud to use them and I get lots of positive comments.
I was getting tired of using the plastic produce bags only to have them thrown away as soon as I arrived home from the store. These reusable bags work great, look great and you'll feel good using them. It would, as another reviewer mentioned, be nice to have a set at a larger size for the bigger items.
I had some other produce bags that were cotton so I shrunk them when I washed them with some towels. These wash well, you can see the contents, are a great size, they're perfect! I just wish I bought 2 sets initially.
These bags are perfect for buying produce at the grocery store. I have nothing to complain about. Even the bag checkers compliment me on the great idea!
These bags are perfect for avoiding the plastic produce bags. Checkers can see the contents and weigh right in the bag. Very nice quality and just the right size.
These things are the best! It's such a waste to use plastic bags for fruits and vegetables, especially if you are only buying a single item. The first time I used them three people stopped me to ask where I got them. I just need to remember to keep them in my car so I don't forget them when I go shopping. Excellent bags!
These are great. A perfect size for most common produce purchases. I love that they have different color tags, you can remember to use the same color for the same itemseach time you purchase. My only wish is that they had a way to stay closed once you fill them, a toggle maybe. Not really necessary for small, light items like a bunch of radishes but needed for larger, heavier items like apples and oranges. All in all I love them and should have bought two sets!
I love these bags, they are nice and lightweight, pack into one of them nicely, the produce store loves them because they are opaque enough to identify the produce through and I love saving ourselves from having all of those little plastic produce bags! As another person said I wish they had a little slide closure to secure them, but a quick loopy knot does the trick just fine too.
I'm so glad I bought these--they have saved so many plastic bags already! They're strong and machine washable.
For almost two years I have been reusing the clear plastic produce bags which are available at the supermarket for free and shoppers use them as if we don't have a planet to protect. Reusable shopping bags are available in Israel, but I could not find anywhere reusable produce bags. I am so satisfied with finding thes bags on this website - they are durable, clear so it is convenient to see what is inside, and even looking chic. I often get asked where I got them and people take notice of my replacement of the clear plastic bags. Iimproved my shopping experience, hopefully it will make an impact to those taking notice as well.
These bags are perfect for going to buy produce! I always hated using those plastic bags for my produce, but now I don't have to!
I ordered the flip and tumble reusable produce bags in a set of 5. I absolutely love them! They are light enough to carry around with me in my purse and very durable. No more plastic baggies for our family!!!
These are the best reuables to replace plastic fruit & veggie bags that I have been able to find. The grocery clerks love them because they can read the silly little labels stuck separately on every apple right through the bag with no difficulty. This is another REUSEIT product that I can't keep to myself because of family and friends falling in love with them and taking them. My youngest son has taken and designate one of the bags as his "seashell collection bag" for beach trips because the tiniest shells will not fall out! If they need washed, I put them inside one of the zip-up hosiery laundry bags to protect the ties. Another WINNING reuseable from REUSIT!
Bags work wonderfully.
I use reusable shopping bags...so I now just keep the produce bags within them and I have everything I need to at the grocerty store. Also, washable.
I really like these bags. They're more than just functional! They're washable, lightweight, easy to use and nice to look at.
I purchased a set of these for myself and then several more to give away as gifts for Christmas. Not only do I love that we are no longer using plastic for produce, but I have found that if you keep ripening produce out on your counter/fruit bowl in these (with it drawn tightly shut), it almost eliminates fruit flies as the holes seem too small for them to get through. The people who received them as gifts also seemed very happy with them.
I ordered 2 sets of these bags and was SO impressed at the quality! They are strong, the drawstrings are durable and I can see many years of use coming from these bags. Everyone who sees them at the store says "What are those?" They have never seen anything like them and I'm happy to help people use less plastic. Such a great product. I would love to see similar bags with zippers and in various sizes.
I had ordered some Earth Totes some time ago. I love them so much, I bought them for my kids and then ordered some more for me. Most of the people who bag my groceries love them! Just a couple who complain because they are not used to using anything but the store plastic bags. haha I bought the compact reuseable shopping bags to give to my co-workers this year. They are like the workhorse. I gave those to my coworkers last year for Christmas. These bags are colorful and can be clipped on your purse, belt loop, etc. Very convenient. The flip and tumble bags are nice. However, it's not as easy to read through them. I had one checker struggle to read the fruit sticker through one of them.
I really like these bags. They are light and compact, but hold a lot. I also like that you can see what is in the bag. I bought 2 more sets as gifts, but I am thinking of keeping them for myself!
I love these bags. We have a big problem with fruit flies coming in from the stores. I leave our fruit out because I don't like refrigerator cold fruit. The mesh on these bags is small enough that I don't have to worry about the flies getting on or off the fruit. If we bring some home of the fruit they stay contained until we put them outside. Only one improvement would be to put a stay on the drawstrings.
I love the look and convenience of the Flip & Tumble Produce Bags. I had previously bought one set, but realized I was still using plastic bags if I had more than 5 veggies on my shopping list; hence the need for more. They fit nicely in a (recycled) quart zip-lock bag in my purse to stay clean between uses and always be available when needed. I have received several compliments and queries about them from both store personel and other customers. They clean up easily - I just turn them inside out to knock out any dry debris or give them a bath and line dry if something gets goopy. I am very pleased with these little bags.
I purchased these bags to organize the produce I get from our CSA. They work great, are easily washed and I store the produce in the refrigerator in them.
Perfect product! Now I don't have to stress about using wasteful plastic produce bags at the grocery store. The Flip & Tumble bags are wonderful. Easy to use, weight practically nothing, easy to clean. Take them to the store or farmer's market!
I can't get enough these bags. They are just perfect and easy to clean, just toss them in the washer!
I have gotten a lot of comments on these when I use them at WallyWorld. Everyone wants to know where I got them! Very easy to use - I combine these with the "Workhorse" bags when I shop.
I took these bags to the farmer's market and it made the experience much more enjoyable - a separate bag for each different type of vegetable or fruit! The bags are well-made, light-weight, a good size and I like the tiny splash of color on the tag.
I bought a set of these bags to try them out. I wasn't too sure how big they would be, or how the cashier would handle them, but they are perfect. THey are big enough to hold pounds and pounds of apples, oranges, potatoes etc. You probably won't fit a head of Romaine lettuce in there, but I wouldn't want a bag that big for the rest of my produce anyway. The cashier doesn't have a problem seeing what's inside and reading the plu either, and they are so lightweight. I actually have less of a problem with my fruit rolling out of the bag and around my trunk with these than I did with plastic produce bags because of the drawstring. I am going to purchase another set or two of these! (I think they'd be good for knick knacks around the house too!)
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, these bags! I have always hated the plastic produce bags in the grocery store and these Flip & Tumble bags are the greatest. It never fails, every time I go to the grocery store, the cashiers want to know where I got them - they have all been very impressed by them. Thank you Reuseit - these get an A++++
I bought these because our town eliminated the use of plastic bags for all but deli items, and I had been giving thought to the waste of using plastic produce bags that I usually threw-out as soon as getting home, because we use green bags for most items. What was unexpected, was how much I liked using them. I keep them inside my reusable shopping bags and can quickly pull them out and fill them. Much easier than looking around the produce section for the plastic bags, and then trying to open those. These just fall open easily and are a wonderful size. The quality is also nice.
Great perfect unexpensive. I definitly recommend it.
I bought 2 sets of these and they are the best! I take them with me to the fruit stand, farmers market, and the grocery store! No more yucky plastic bags for my produce. These are super light weight so they don't add much to the weight of your produce and the cashier can easily see the items through the mesh so you don't need to take anything out at the checkout. 100% reccommended, and I will definately buy more if the need arises.
Love the bags! Great to use for all produce. Love that you get a bunch of them. Washes easily in the laundry.
The only way to go when shopping.
a little tough with damp produce, but love them.
a little tough with damp produce, but love them.
I bought these produce bags for a friend of mine. They seem very well-made, and the draw-strings help close them tightly.
I like them & am glad I bought them (after months of hesitation because of the price). Easy to use & wash. I've had them for about 8 months- so far so good.
These bags are great. I originally purchased them to give as a gift to a friend who goes to a farmer's market frequently. I bought myself a set too, and use them everytime I go to the grocery. They work so much better than the plastic bags. The drawstring is GREAT. No more apples bouncing along the conveyor belt! I was afraid they were too opaque for the cashier to read the SKU #'s but they are perfect! They love them too.
I love these little bags. They are super light weight so when they are weighing your fruit it's not going to make a difference. They hold alot. I'm excited to use these more.
Even after I converted to reuseable shopping bags, I hated having to use those baggies for produce. Now I have the best of both. They are light weight, durable and the right size for almost all produce. I have even considered using them for washing delicates when I'm traveling....
I love these. I use them for my produce and shake them out after using them. They are awesome! I think I may buy some for Christmas gifts. My mom and sister will love them too!
I've been looking for reusable bags to use for my produce, especially on my trips to the farmer's market. They are perfect! They are simple to clean and store. I even bought a set for my sister and we BOTH LOVE THEM! Definitely recommended!
I am very pleased with them so far. I have used them at the farmers market and have felt good about not having to get my produce in plastic grocery bags. I also like how lightweight they are and don't add extra weight to the produce at the grocery store.
I've used these to purchase veggies at the farmer's market and I really like them. They're strong and lightweight and easy to clean.
I bought 2 sets of these (one to give away) but decided to keep both for myself! They are easier to manage at the store than the light plastic bags & ties in the produce section - items go in easily & the pull strings close them up. I buy produce for 2, so usually I'm getting a number of different things in fairly small amounts, so these are the perfect size. I'm finding that some produce stores better in the fridge in a more closed type container or bag, though - whether to keep it hydrated or to cut down on odor (as in green onions). I'll be adding these to holiday gift lists when I start that shopping process.
I am extremely happy with these bags. I bought two sets because we eat a lot of fresh fruits and veggies. I wash these bags almost every time after use and they are withstanding the frequent washing very well. One bag did lose its knot on the drawstring after one wash; but my husband re-strung it and it was fine. So as a disclaimer for anyone purchasing that plans to wash frequently, check the knots on the drawstrings! Otherwise, these have been an amazing, helpful, and reasonably-priced purchase.
I've been instantly hooked. These are easy to carry in your shopping bag, pocket, or pocketbook. They only weigh about a half an ounce each with the washing tag still on (I weighed one: exactly half an ounce). Very easy to open, close, carry. Great for fruits, vegetables, and non-powdered bulk foods (e.g. beans & lentils, nuts, some grains).
I have a few reusable produce bags but these are the lightest and wash so well. Thanks for these.
I say 'mostly' because leafy produce seems to wilt in these puppies. But I use them even for lettuces because I hate those plastic bags, they are so wasteful and when they get water in them from the veggies, it makes the veggies rot. With fresh-disks in the bins, the wilting happens over a couple days, so if you eat your lettuce every day, you don't have a problem. I recommend.
These are really perfect to eliminate the fruit and vegi plastic bags at the store. I haven't weighed one, but it really doesn't add to the weight of the produce. The fact that they are mesh is perfect and they are a great size for most produce. I love that they are washable, and I just keep them with my other resusable bags in the car for shopping. Really pleased!
I bought these for myself a while back and LOVE them! Bought three more sets as gifts and an extra set for myself. They are great quality, very durable. I use them at every grocery trip and am delighted to not battle with that darn roll of plastic bags in the produce section! At a minimum figure I'm saving 250 of them from being used and tossed in a year! They're a decent size -- can easily hold a bunch of bananas, a hunk of brocoli or a half dozen ear of corn! I think this particular set is a good value too...best I've found!
Amazing produce bags. Could never use plastic again. Cashiers and others in checkout lanes ask where they can find these. Absolutely love them.
These bags are wonderful and are well made! It's great size for all kinds of fruits and veggies. These bags allow the fruits & veggies to breath so you can pop the bag in the fridge when you get home! Also feels great to stop using the plastic bags that always seem to rip!
These produce bags are very high quality! Would highly recommend!!
The one thing I always hated about buying produce is finding and opening the stupid plastic bags. Seems like when I needed one it was always on the other side of the aisle and when I did find it the things was so hard to open, especially if you had apples or something in one hand. Seems a little expensive, but they will last at least as long as I will, lol, so to me they are a bargain.
Finally got to try these out. Used them at a Farmer's Market. Worked great. I love the drawstring. So easy to use.
These produce bags have been wonderful! They are easy to use; they are lightweight; the checkout clerk can see the produce sticker through the bag; they are washable polyester; we can store bagged produce in the refrigerator; also the bags are strong. I only regret that I didn't buy more initially because some are continually being used to store produce in the refrigerator; 3 packs of five would have been more practical for my family's needs. Many people in checkout lines have asked where they could buy these bags since they have never seen bags such as this for sale. They also say they've felt guilty about using the plastic disposable produce bags but had no idea of any alternative. I am very satisfied with my choice of this style of produce bag.
I LOVE THESE BAGS! We use them every trip to the market and continue using them in the fridge. They hold up well. They rinse and dry well. Not a single complaint. We get funny looks at the merket cause not too many people have seen them before. I saw fred meyer has nylon bags in the produce section now! We are well on our way to eliminating plastic bags!
These bags allow fruits and vegetables to breathe and stay fresh for a long time. Very handy.
These bags are so great! They are less expensive than similar products and work so well! You can easily wash them.
I purchased this set of 5 reusable produce bags on an impulse and have been extremely happy that I did so. These bags have countless uses from putting your produce from the farmers market or grocery store to loading them up with items from the bulk bins at various stores. The weight on the bag is minimal enough that it doesn't affect how much you are paying for items based on weight. These are sturdy and easily cleaned by a quick run through the washing machine. They are also useful in the refrigerator and do an amazing job of eliminating the use of those annoying plastic produce bags they offer you at the grocery store! This is a purchase you CANNOT go wrong with!
I love these bags. They are really nice and since they are mesh you can see what is in them. As opposed to the organic cotton bags you can get elsewhere. I actually can just leave my produce in these bags and put them in the fridge. Very cute and useful!
I had really disliked having to use plastic bags for my produce when grocery shopping, especially since I go through the effort to make sure I don't forget my reusable shopping bags. I was very excited to find these bags and so far they have worked great! They are made well and are a great addition to my collection of reusable bags!
I'm very happy with the reusable produce bags. I may need to buy another set, as I didn't realize how much produce I actually buy! These are helping to keep a log of plastic out of landfills. Thanks for a great product.
I absolutely love my produce bags! I take them to the market and to the farmer's market. I love saving on plastic bags.
I looked everywhere for reusable produce bags like these! They are great for trips to the grocery store, and for storing produce at home. No more plastic bags, which is awesome.
I already used reusable bags for my groceries, but was feeling guilty about the amount of produce bags I was using during each trip to the grocery store. At first I didn't think 5 bags would be enough, but in the last month, I've never needed more than 5. The bags are durable and nice looking. I get lots of compliments and questions from other shoppers! I recently purchased 4 ears of corn on the cob (still in the husk). With a plastic bag, I'd have to double or triple bag to keep them from poking a hole and falling out. With these bags - no problems! I could have easily but another ear or two in the bag too, so these bags are roomy. Plus, the store I shop at gives me a discount for bringing my own bags! Great product, would recommend to anyone looking for a quality, versatle product to replace their plastic produce bags. These bags will also come in very handy this summer for outings with the kids for snacks, toys, etc. Thank you for making such a great product!!
I think these bags are fantabulous. I used these bags the other day and they are great. No only do I get compliments on them, you can see through them, they are lightweight and easy to wash, and the drawstring actually allowed me to hang my bananas and mangoes so that they could ripen. I would recommend this set to everyone
like the bags versatility...have used for kids socks in laundry, produce bags, toy bag in bathtub, packing of accessories in daycare backpack...only problem is that I rarely keep the bunch together to have available for grocery shopping. Oh well, might need to buy some more to use in time for all the farmers markets so that we dont' have to take the cartons or plastic bags that they package in.
I love these mesh produce bags. I was so happy to never use another plastic bag at the grocery store again! The cashier was able to see the produce and identification numbers through the mesh and charge me accordingly. And I didn't use a plastic bag! The mesh also allows the produce to breath while you transfer them home. I would highly recommend these bags. If you use reusable shopping bags, these are must-have items!
I absolutely love these reusable produce bags. The size is perfect for everything except the larger lettuce varieties, i.e. green leaf and romane, but I love them anyway. The price stickers adhere very well and are easy to peel off, and the drawstring keeps the bags closed so nothing falls out. Most of all, I love not having to recycle the plastic ones from the store! Thanks for this marvelous product!
I've been looking for re-useable produce bags for awhile and these are just what I was looking for. The check-out people can read the stickers through the bags with no problems, they are a good size for most produce and they seem very durable. I bought two sets and I can fit 9 of them into one and carry them very easily stuffed into one of my re-useable grocery bags. I am planning on getting more as gifts for family members.
These bags are very convenient and great to use at the farmer's market or grocery. I really have enjoyed them.
Love these bags. Perfect size, great material. Draw string closure is simple and keeps produce in. The only complaint (not mine) is that checkers usually have to open the bag to read the codes.
These baggies are fantastic. Just like my reusable shopping bags, I am finding that they are so useful for so many things beyond grocery shopping. I have used them to hold toys, lunches, and to separate outfits for my daughter in my suitcase when we have traveled. They of course work great for produce. I like that you can see through them, the cashier seems to have no problem telling what things are. I don't get any confused cashiers when I shop. I remember about 8 years ago, when I first started using reusable shopping bags, I would get a lot of confused cashiers who didn't know what to do with my bag. Sometimes they would put all my groceries in a plastic baggie and then inside my reusable bag before I had a chance to stop them.
These have been such a great product!! I absolutely love them, and I feel so much better about buying fresh veggies when I can put them in these bags. Everywhere I go I am asked where I got them (even grocery store employees!) The best part is, you can simply throw them in the wash when they need to be cleaned! Totally worth the money.
I'm impressed by the quality of these bags, and didn't get a second glance when I used them at the grocery store. They close fine, and are easy to see through. Recommended.
These produce bags are the best! Yes, they are light weight; yes they are convenient to fold and leave in your shopping bag; yes, they are washable. But one of the best reasons to buy and use them is that people NOTICE and ask about using produce bags. Spread the word!
These produce bags are wonderful! I had seen some people in the stores with cotton produce bags, and that didn't really appeal to me. I like that you can see through these bags, which makes check-out easier. They seem to be very high-quality, with a nice drawstring top that stays closed without knotting. I buy a lot of produce, and I was trying not to use a bag if I didn't have to. But some things really need a bag, and I like that I don't have to use a lot of extra plastic bags now.
I love these produce bags. They are very sturdy. They are a fine mesh which makes the produce stickers easy to read for the cashiers. I always get comments about the bags when I am shopping. I hope these catch on as much as the reusable grocery bags. Thanks for a great product.
Great bags, just wish they were a tad bigger.
I use these on every trip to the grocery store. They are durable, washable and see-thru (making them easy to use at the checkout). I'm so glad to never need another plastic produce bag again!
I love these bags. I'd bought cotton produce bags a while back and never used them b/c they weren't see-through. These are, and the dry quickly, and are in every way terrific. I used them for both bulk and and produce and recommend them highly. Robin Aronson
I originally went looking online for reusable produce bags that I could take to the grocery store with me instead of constantly using those plastic bags that the grocery store offers. I looked around online for quite a while and came upon the reusablebags website. They have so many great options for what I was looking for. I finally decided on the Flip & Tumble bags that came in a set of 5. I not only bought one set for myself but for my sister as well. They are great!
These produce bags are light, durable, transparent and have worked well. Many check out cashiers have commented on them! A great way to reduce plastic consumption.
washable, see through, pack of 5...great value
These are great little bags. The only improvements would be a teeny bit bigger and NOT MADE IN CHINA.
I really love these. So far I haven't been able to anything they aren't already doing - I think it's great that they are semi-transparent so that you can see the contents, not just for you, but for your grocer. Everything I have wanted to put inside them has fit.
Sturdy, well made bags. Check-out person did have to open the bag to read the PLU# on the produce, but this wasn't really a PROBLEM. All in all, I am very happy. I feel they would make a nice gift. Who needs another plastic produce bag????
I really like knowing that these are helping the enviroment. Very large and hold a lot of items.
Awesome alternative to grocery store plastic produce bags. Easy to clean, small enough to keep in your purse.
These bags are perfect for produce. They are lightweight and easy for the cashier to see thru to read the code.
I wish these existed when I purchased my original set of cotton produce bags several years ago, because the Flip & Tumbles are so much better! The mesh design prevents the bags from getting "scuzzy" like the cotton ones, they are a great size (perfect for lettuce/greens, broccoli, several onions, many apples/oranges, etc.), and are easy for checkers to see what is inside without opening. I would buy several more sets, if I didn't already have a bunch of cotton ones!
I had the canvas ones before these and although they were great, you couldn't see what was in them. This set of 5 is perfect for my veggies/fruits at the grocery store. Sturdy and easy to clean.
I am so excited every time I go to buy produce. I always hated using those bags that I couldn't reuse. These are light weight, fit in my purse and so easy to use. I have gotten inquiries from lots of people every time I shop.
I love the price, I love the quantity (a whole set of 5!), I love the size. I can fit a whole head of green leaf lettuce in one of them, or several apples, or a stalk of celery. Some cashiers have a problem seeing the produce codes, but others have no problem with them -- one cashier at my local store always makes sure to give me a bag discount for the produce bags as well as my shopping bags. The reviews on this site helped me make up my mind to purchase these bags, and I'm glad I did.
I love these produce bags! Love that there are a set of 5, the colored tags are bright and fun, and they are the perfect size, nicely constructed. I also store my produce in these bags in the fridge without any problem.
I wasn't sure how these would work out and sometimes the clerks are a bit confused but I love them. I have had the clerk remove the bags in fear of the weight but others leave it alone. I would prefer they leave them alone and I pay a penny more vs handling all my produce. The only think I'm not doing is storing my produce in them because I don't own enough. I need to buy more :)
I think these are wonderful. I tried ordering prdouce bags last time, but they wer enot only small, but non see through, so it made it hard for the cashier to recognize what you buy. Those currently store little dance costume accessories. These I have been able to fit 8 apples into the bag. I am definitely planning to buy another set to keep in my significant others car, so he can start using these instead of grabbing plastic produce bags.
I love these bags! They are perfect for the grocery store. I buy so much produce that this is a great way to reuse. However, I need to buy an extra set because by the time I go to the grocery store again, I will still have some produce in my fridge. So you need to be able to rotate a few in and out. Overall, an amazing product.
So much better using these than all the plastic bags at the grocery store. Great idea!
These are great for sorting my CSA veggies when I go to pick them up and then I just throw them in the frig. So convenient, and I love hanging root vegetables up in my pantry by the string. They seem sturdy and very well designed.
These produce bags are exactly what I was hoping for. Big enough to fit any produce I buy, and transparent enough to see the stickers on the produce inside. I am so glad to not have to pull the plastic bags off the roll at the grocery store anymore!
they fit a good amount of fruit/veggies and it feels so much better than wasting plastic.
I love using these bags for produce at the grocery store. The drawstring at the top is great, and the size is generous but not too large. I washed them per the instructions (machine wash cold, line dry) and they came out perfectly. These are my first reusable produce bags, so I don't have anything to compare them to. But I think they're great and will definitely get lots of use.
These bags are great! I always hated wasting countless plastic produce bags, and these are the solution. They are easy to use and clean.
These little bags are great. Very easy to use at the store, no bulk and very light weight. The checkers can see what's in them to weigh and scan your items easily as well. I gave these bags as Christmas gifts to my mom and sister and they love them too.
These bags are everything I hoped for. I have bought them for my friends, my daughters and my sister!
I'd been waiting for a better offer on produce bags and it finally arrived with this brand. I thought the other brands of produce bags featured on this site were too expensive, especially because the sets included at most 3 bags. I bought two sets of these bags, for a total of 10 and they are perfect. They're tall enough to fit stalks of celery and stretch enough for 8 onions. The cashiers had no problem identifying the produce items through the semi-sheer material. All in all, great buy! The only way this could be better is if they included a pouch for storing them, but you can always stuff them all in one bag.
They are practical and conveniente

I bought ten of these and my husband (the cook and fridge manager) loves them. He takes them shopping and he uses them to store our weekly CSA veggies.
Beware!! They will not keep your veggies as long as the thin plastic you're used to unless you add a humidity/gas reducing "produce saver" to the crisper.
I like being able to see what is in the bags and having cashiers being able to see as well. So far holding up fine and washing easily.
They're not really durable and one of my bags has a snag in it already. It was inevitable since it's mesh, but I still like them!
I'm pretty excited about containing my veggies while allowing them to breathe. I'm not sure the clerks at local grocery stores are as excited, but I haven't used them much yet. And I'm sure they'll be great for the farmers market.
It didn't make sense to bring home groceries in reusable bags but with plastic bags for all the produce so I bought these. Things go right from the grocery store into the produce drawer of my refrigerator. The only problem is that veggies dry out if there for too long before getting eaten.
First use today (just had lots of handfuls of loose stuff recently!) The check out lady couldn't clearly see the apple's sticker, so had to open it (I'm ok with that) but next time I should remember the 'type' or something... Love that I'm not using plastic anymore!
I buy a lot of produce, and really like using these instead of countless plastic bags. Checkers usually don't have trouble identifying what's inside. I just toss them in the washing machine in a lingerie bag to clean.
They're not terribly awesome for keeping veggies fresh once you get them home, though. I'm still figuring out a good solution to that.
These are really helpful :) I worry about how long lasting they are, but they seem to be working wonderfully so far and surely seem like they'd last longer than ones made out of simply cotton. You can rinse them off and use them again...I use them every week for all of my produce!
This set is great. I buy a lot of produce, but I have never come close to needing more bags than what comes in this set. They're very roomy and easy to clean. Cashiers love them because you can easily see what's inside. I just wish they came with a carrying bag or case because I'm always afraid that I'm going to lose one.
I do love these bags. They are large enough to hold lots of produce, I can see through them, and very washable. The only thing I don't like is I can't figure out a way to close them properly with the drawstring because it is so slippery. Sometimes my apples spill out into the grocery basket and it's a little annoying. Maybe somebody has a better way of tying up the drawstring so as to secure it, but not making a permanent knot.
These bags are really nice, but don't expect to be able to store leafy greens in them in your fridge, as I did. A bunch of watercress went incredibly limp in less than two days. Still great for other things though, (drier, thicker skinned items) and will definitely cut down on the waste of those little plastic bags.
I've always felt a little bad about using so many one-use bags when I buy produce. So naturally, it was great to bring these bags along. They worked well...the drawstring at the top is handy because It keeps apples and oranges from falling out. It's also nice that they are see-through, and the tight mesh lets the fruit breathe. I also washed them and they held up well and dried quickly. The only criticism I have is that I had some long ears of corn, and it was a struggle to get the drawstring around them. All the rest of the produce I had fit inside wonderfully.
We have used these for about 3 months now and they work great! 90% of the cashiers have been able to read through them just fine, a few had to take a peek inside but otherwise it's been good at the checkout line. They hold quite a bit of fruit, although they will open up on the conveyor belt if you don't tie them closed (or just grab them quickly). We have kept cucumbers, onions, and garlic in the fridge in the bags with no issues. The only downside? My cat is running out of plastic bags for his litter disposal!
First, I like that these bags are lightweight, so I don't feel like they add anything to the scale when my produce is being weighed. Second, I LOVE that they are mostly transparent! Easy for the cashier to read the produce stickers right through the bag. I only wish the set had some variety in sizes. I'd like 1 or 2 slightly bigger, to hold a big bunch of chard or other greens.
These are excellent bags. I use them for everything from produce to packing suitcases (for holding toys, etc). The only reason I don't rate them with 5 stars is that they only have one pull-string. In order to keep them shut, you have to tie the string or the bag. I added another pull string to the opposite side of the bag -- pull both strings to close the bag, and it stays shut. If the manufacturer added another pull-string, these would be tops!
I really like these bags as a replacement for plastic ones in the grocery store. The mesh is fine enough that cashiers can find the product code pretty easily. The bags are an excellent size; I typically use them for 5-6 apples or oranges and there is room to spare. The only drawback (and reason I did not give this a good rating) is that there isn't a plastic slider on the string, so in order to keep the bag closed you need to tie it. This would be very useful for keeping produce in the bag.
I really liked using these bags at the grocery store. They did fit everything that I needed. But were I to buy a head of romaine or a stalk of celery, I'm not sure they would fit. These bags would be nice if they were a range of sizes. Otherwise, thumbs up!
I really love the style and feel of these, the drawstring is great, and you can easily see the type of produce in them, but because of the size of the weave, it's very difficult, if not impossible, to read the fruit sticker for the i.d. number the cashier needs. Fortunately, it's easy to open, but still requires that extra step.
I purchased two sets of these bags. They are very good for citrus, onions, garlic, and other skinned produce. Not good for leafy greens; those really need to be sealed in a plastic bag to prevent wilting. I also take them to the farmers market to save on disposable plastic bags. Overall, I'd buy them again.
I take these to the Farmer's Market and then just put my stuff directly in the fridge. My husband complained that they let in too much air--esp wiuth herbs--but I love them.
I like these bags as they are very soft and easy to fill. As with the others, they don't keep things that dry out in the fridge (like mushrooms) as well as plastic (sigh), but they work great for other things. They rinse out very well so far. I have not put them in the wash, but don't expect any problems.
Nicely made but beware they add some weight to the scale. Good to use on price per unit items vs. per lb. items as they are rather thick.
Although these are designed as produce bags, they are great size for any number of things. They dry quickly and take up very little space. I would like to see a toggle on the drawstring.
I really like these produce bags and I feel so green pulling out these lightweight bags instead of reaching for more plastic! The material is very attractive. My only wish is that the bags folded or scrunched into an easier way to throw into my bag. I also purchased Baggu produce bags which have an elastic for easier storage.
Francine R.--Some polyesters ARE biodegradable, especially the newer ones. It is irresponsible to spout incorrect information like that that might dissuade people from buying produce bags like these. I've seen these bags in action, they look attractive and seem well-made. The price is also very reasonable.
I really like theses bags, but I'm hoping they can be made just a couple inches longer for produce like celery and carrots.
I used these for the first time this week. They worked beautifully holding my produce in the grocery cart, but when checkout time came, the clerk had a hard time seeing the code on the sticker on the fruit to enter the price and had to really look at it hard. Otherwise, they were great and kept me from having to remove everything from the usual plastic bags when I got home and move them to the recycle pile. I will keep using them, but maybe remove one of the stickers and put it on the outside of the bag, if it will stick.
I agree with all of the other positive comments about these bags already mentioned - durable, attractive, good size, much better than use-and-toss plastic, easy to clean, etc. - and I'm glad I bought them. I've even gotten several comments/questions about them from grocery store clerks, which is cool. However, I find that almost a lot of produce items I store in them in the fridge goes limp and soft fairly quickly...lettuce, green onions, peppers, broccoli, cilantro, even carrots. I have had success with onions, apples, citrus, and potatoes. I'm just sad I can't use them for everything. Maybe this is a problem with my fridge, since no one else seems to have reported this as an issue.
I'm so happy I found these bags for the produce I buy each week at our local grocery store. I also look forward to using them at the Farmer's Market once warm weather returns. I like the soft, lightweight feel of them and that each one has a different colored tag on it - purely for aesthetic reasons. I can fold them up and place them in my snack sack, which also holds my shopping bags. My only complaint is that there is no way to secure the bag closed. The pull string doesn't stay pulled, and in fact comes loose very easily. I have to be careful of how I place them in my Flip & Tumble shopping bags or the produce will fall out. This is why I give them 4 rather than 5 stars.
I love the idea of these and reducing the number of plastic bags we use but have found that some veggies actually store and last longer in plastic. I continue to use them but pay attention to which veggies are stored in them.
They are great for shopping, clean very easily, but are really not suitable for storage, even in a crisper drawer. Produce dries out fast in them; broccoli gets limp and unappealing after a day or so.
These are not bad bags by any means. They are not as good as the baggu bags I also have. I hate it those are no longer made. Back to the Flip and tumbles... Seem to be solid in construction, the drawstring closure works well. I was truly hoping they were made in the USA, which they are not. If I could not find some made in America, I would buy these again.
These are good overall, but I have had a few challenges. As one reviewer said, they don't keep things as crisp as plastic, which can lead to wasting food. The other challenge is mine got moldy (my fault), but now I can't seem to get the mold off in the wash. I might have to get new ones and throw them away, which makes them non-reusable. I do like that you can put them in the washing machine, they are easy to store, and the mesh is tight enough that things do escape, but you can still see your food.
These bags are much stronger than other similar bags I have. They have re-enforced seams and heavier material. However the material is too dense, labels especially ones with smaller print cannot be read through the mesh. I will only be able to use these for things that do not have labels. The bags are good otherwise and can accommodate large heads of lettuce and hold heavier loads of things like apples with no trouble.
