Dimensions Extra Large: 15" H x 12" W Medium: 11" H x 11" W (NOTE: the interior tag on these bags may be labeled "small," but the dimensions are the same as listed here.)
Design and Functionality Made of certified-organic cotton, these net sacks are larger than standard plastic produce bags found in most grocery stores. Unlike those plastic bags, these sacks can be reused indefinitely. Take them with you to the grocery store or farmer’s market for your fruit and vegetable purchases for another way to say "no" to plastic. When used with our produce savers, you can save money as you help the environment by dramatically increasing the shelf life of your fruits and vegetables. With a drawstring and tight weave, these sacks stretch to hold a variety of things. Not just for produce, they are ideal for other bulk food products, and also make great gift bags, lunch sacks, or lightweight travel bags.
Helpful Hint While the Organic Cotton Net Produce Bags are lightweight, be aware that sometimes the bags will add to the net weight of a purchase if produce is left in the bag during check out. Produce scales in the store may be adjusted to only accommodate for plastic bag tare weight, and the Organic Cotton Net Produce Bags are slightly heavier.
Extra Large = 38g (0.09 lb)
Medium = 28g (0.04 lb)
Materials Organic cotton is a far superior alternative to chemical-laden conventional cotton. More and more farmers around the world are growing cotton without costly, harmful chemicals. Their yield is high and the quality of the cotton they grow is equal to or better than conventionally grown cotton. Their methods support biodiversity and healthy ecosystems, improve the quality of soil and often use less water.
Sustainability Growing organically takes more time, requires more knowledge and skill, and, at least for now, costs a bit more. But it is worth it since it doesn't contain any hidden costs to our environment. This bag can help you eliminate thousands of plastic bags over its lifetime. Our wide range of reusable bags are also built to last, which saves both money and natural resources.

Comments about Product:OK, I have to admit; I'm a total Eco-Geek! If something can reduce my footprint or the plastic in my life... I'm sold! But these are great and people are asking me where I got those when I shop to my farmers market and grocery! However they do shrink a little when you wash them but stretch back to there initial form pretty easily! If you are tired of those useless single use plastic produces bags this is for you! I just wish I found those way earlier!
Comments about Product:I've ordered these bags several times for my own use & to share with family. They are wonderful for produce at the grocery store, but also work well for small items when shopping elsewhere, to replace plastic bags. They wash well, but I've learned not to put in the dryer. They dry quickly by hanging & if they look as though they have shrunk, just stretch up & down, & side to side.
Comments about Product:I ordered three veggie bags for grocery shopping. They are sturdy, yet lightweight enough that I can check out my vetables at the cashier without having to remove them. Best of all, I no longer have to rely on those flimsy plastic bags.
Comments about Product:The mesh bags were perfect for fruit and veggies at the grocery store or farmers market. Didn't need to use those plastic bags once. Now I just wish I would have bought more than four! The only thing is, the produce inside isn't very distinguishable from the outside so checking out at the grocery takes a little longer and is a little more awkward. I plan on transitioning to the farmers market elusively though, so that will make it easier for me.
Comments about Product:Like these bags very much. Bought in several sizes and they work great to hold vegatables and fruits that need to be bagged. If they get wet, these bags dry quickly. They are easily stored in side pockets of grocery bags so they are always available.
Comments about Product:I appreciate the construction and look/feel of this bag but recommend the largest option. The medium size just barely fits one head of broccoli and could get worse if the bag is accidentally machine dried/shrunk. Overall, I recommend the bags, though.
Comments about Product:I love these bags! Had a smaller one that got misplaced, so went online to order a replacement. You don't have the smaller ones anymore, so ordered the medium size and like it even more - thankful I got two!
Comments about Product:Just used these bags for the first time, & it felt so good not to be tearing off plastic bags. Whipped them out of my tote and voila, so convenient, amd I like that air can circulate, & that it's so easy to see what's in them. I may have to order more, for myself or for gifts...
Comments about Product:I love these bags for fruit in my frig! I believe it actually stays fresh longer - and so convenient to see what's inside so that you don't forget to use something in a timely manner! Very happy with this bag!!
Comments about Product:I love these. I use them to smuggle popcorn into theaters. (I know that's bad but we usually buy a drink to go with the popcorn!) Also very nice for taking fruit in the car on a trip... I just can't tell you how many ways you could use these bags. And any thing you can use instead of plastic is a big plus in my opinion.

Comments about Product:I recently bought these to replace the white mesh flip and tumble bags I had. I prefer these, they seem to be more durable and less prone to snags and tears than the white mesh bags. I have found that the Reusit/Acme brand products have always been great quality (I have the mesh grocery bags as well and am always getting compliments on them).
Comments about Product:These are good strong bags and I use them to get veg from my allotment. I store shallots and garlic in them and later will put each squash into a bag and hang the bags in the garage (we don`t have generally have cellars in the uk)for winter storage. I was scratching my head about how to store these squashes so they don`t bruise and this is a fine and timely solution
They wash well too and I have re-ordered so have a lot of them
Comments about Product:Ordered 3 different kinds of produce bags and really like this one best and not sure why, but it's lightweight netting makes it easy to see through and very sturdy. Drawstring closes easily. And I feel good about using it!
Comments about Product:I bought multiple produce bags and lunch skins in mulitiple sizes and like them a lot. The lunch skins wrap out really easily and all sizes of the lunch skins are really durable.
Comments about Product:These are great produce bags. I ordered several of the large bags and use them to store onions and potatoes in my pantry. They are very sturdy and are holdng up very well. I would highly recommend this item.
Comments about Product:These are good bags but they aren't exactly what I expected. First, they are smaller than I anticipated. Sure the sizing is listed on the site but after washing they have shrunk. They do stretch a bit and hold a decent amount but reading the codes on the produce stickers through the mesh isn't possible. I thought the mesh would be a bit finer. But still a great alternative to plastic and can hold larger bulk items like nuts.
Comments about Product:My husband and I LOVE these bags. We bought 5 and I almost wish we bought more. They are great for buying produce and for carrying things for my daughter. The website doesn't do a great job of showing how big they are. I would recommend buying the larger ones. The smaller ones are not as big as you would need to buy a decent amount of produce. However, we love them.
Comments about Product:I loved the first few produce bags I bought a few more because I use these bags for ALL my produce. I bring these to the farmer's market and I've been asked where I got my bags. I bring my own bags into every store and I have never had a cashier complain that the bags make things difficult. I have not noticed my bags shrinking but it may be that I line dry them and I do not put them in the dryer. I love that I do not use plastic any more!
Comments about Product:This bags are not pre shrunk. The 'Medium' 12x10 bags was reduced to a 9x8 bag in the wash (1/4 warm water to mix soap, then cold). They were hung dry. The tare weight is actually .06 not .04 as listed (I prefer to have all of mine the same weight for easy checkout). In addition the tare is located on the inside of the bag. It should be on the outside. If you don't want the cashier to open the bags, look for a bag with the tare weight tag on the outside. Then peal the sticker off your item and place it on the tare tag.
Comments about Product:I read great reviews about this bag and bought 2. One of them ripped after 2 uses. I had washed it, and not sure if it caught on something in the machine. But I was disappointed that it didn't hold up better.
Comments about Product:These are great bags. Somehow I over estimated the size and they don't *quite* fit romaine (or similar) lettuce heads. They also shrunk a little after washing in cold and laying flat to dry. Seem like they're very sturdy, though and I look forward to lots of years of use.
Comments about Product:These bags are easy to use and do what they are supposed to do. but I disagree with the statement that they are easy to see through. Almost every time I use them, the person at the checkout has to open the bag (loosen the drawstring)to see the sticker on the produce, or I have to tell them what's in there or how many. I'm going to get some that are easier to see though and reserve these for personal (non-shopping) use instead.
Comments about Product:I'd love to say, I love the reusable produce bags I ordered a month ago, but I have yet to receive them!!! So maybe if they ever come I can give some better feedback. Very disappointed!
Comments about Product:We love these bags! Ever since we eliminated plastic bags in our house, these are our new replacement. We're the envy of the produce section-everyone asks where we got them. They wash really well too. I just ordered more! Buy then now!
Comments about Product:I'm using these for loose produce.. love them! The drawstring stays in tact (which was a problem I had with other bags). I can throw them in the wash when needed.. overall great product.
Comments about Product:I love the small produce/snack, organic cotton net bags. The netting is small enough that small items, cherries, etc. won't fall out. They wash up nicely just throw them in the laundry with the towels. I'm thinking of giving them for Christmas presents. Great product.
Comments about Product:These little bags can be used for so many things. Great for carrying your lunch or snacks, as well as loose fruits and veggies. I just wish I would have bought more than two. I get so many compliments on them!
Comments about Product:I have other produce bags that are similar, so I knew I would love these…and I do! They are easy to use and carry with me. They are durable and I like the natural look. I will buy more!
Comments about Product:I use these bags on a daily basis. I not only take the bags to the grocery store, I also use them to carry fruits and vegetables in my lunches. They are strong, wash up beautifully in the laundry, and take a lot of wear and tear. I have now started to buy them as gifts for my friends - on Valentine's Day I gave candy AND reusable bags to my friends at work!
Comments about Product:I reviewed these shortly after buying them in June 2008. They have been through many washings and are still going strong. I have learned I can wash these along with my dish towels on a normal setting in warm water. I line dry them though. They do add tare weight to your purchase but many store are giving credit for using your own bags, both large and small. I recommend these highly and would buy them again without a second thought.
Comments about Product:I put onions and garlic in these bags and hang them from wrought iron hooks on my pantry door frame. I like the old style of decorating, warm and cozy, and these bags and few other I bought here do precisely that.
Comments about Product:Exactly what I wanted! Bags are light, durable, and transparent. I've had no complaints from cashiers. Unless you buy very large quantities, go with the smaller versions, they are plenty.
Comments about Product:I purchased both sizes of the cotton muslin and the cotton string bags. They both work for all produce and storage for uncut produce. I am thrilled at the prospect of not using plastic bags and the ease of the natural fiber bags.
Comments about Product:We've been getting really good at eliminating shopping bags, but were still bringing home lots of produce bags. These bags have really helped us start cutting into that problem. They are very sturdy. We bought small and large ones and have been using them for apples, oranges, grapefruit, lemons and limes, broccoli, and carrots. We still need plastic for things like asparagus, but are happy to have cut bags significantly. We live in funky Boulder, where no cashier would dare complain about a customer using a reusable bag. In fact, I've only heard "Where did you get those? I definitely want some."
5.0 This is the second time I ordered bags and I love
Comments about Product:This is the second time I ordered bags and I love the fact they are made with organic cotton -so there is no footprint there. I would like to see another size a little smaller than the small one already provided. It is very useful- and this should be mentioned on the site- that the weight of the bag is sewn into the bag so the cashier can subtract that from the weight of the fruit or vegie. I didn't realize that at first but it is something to take into consideration! Thanks to Reuseable Bags for an important contribution to a greener earth!
Comments about Product:Bought this as a gift and for myself. For produce purchases, I actually prefer this one to the organic muslin bags. Items are easier to see and the netting makes the bag strong but lightweight.
5.0 My sister and I went shopping one day and I saw he
Comments about Product:My sister and I went shopping one day and I saw her using these bags in the supermarket. She let me use one and I really liked it. For years I have tried to avoid using plastic when buying produce, but even at the farmer's market, when I bring my own reusable bags, the farmers stick the produce in plastic before I can say "No plastic, please!" For my birthday, my sister gave me a very generous gift certificate for Reusable Bags and one of the products I bought was 10 of these bags, 5 of each size. Now, I will use them often and will give them as gifts to practice what I preach - No plastic, please!
Comments about Product:I like using the net bags for produce. Check-out however isn't that pleased. A more open mesh would make it easier to read the tags/stickers on produce. I will continue to use them however. They have eliminated a huge number of plastic produce bags. Good product and I intend to buy more
5.0 I really like the produce bags, they are easy to u
Comments about Product:I really like the produce bags, they are easy to use and help me avoid using the plastic ones in the stores. I have four of them and I put them with all my reusable shopping bags when I go shopping. It was really pleasing to see the baggers at the grocery store use the ones that don't have produce in them for other items if they ran out of the reusable bags when bagging my groceries thereby eliminating the use of a plastic bag.
Comments about Product:Love these nifty little bags! I keep them with my cloth shopping bags and take them to the market, eliminating the need for plastic altogether. The vendors love them too, some even offer to deduct a few ounces from the weight of the produce. (I don't let them, but it's a sweet offer!) So glad I ordered these bags.
5.0 I love these bags - so glad to replace all those p
Comments about Product:I love these bags - so glad to replace all those plastic produce bags. I keep them in a shopping bag by the door so I can grab them on my way out to the farmer's market or grocery store.
5.0 These are perfect, lightweight and easily washed
Comments about Product:These are perfect, lightweight and easily washed. I have had some for years and use them for produce at thegrocery store, coop and buying club, sending quick snacks to school and other odds and ends that I need to keep handy. They are also great to corral projects like knitting and quilting--the projects stay clean and in order and I can still see what's in them. More than a few gifts have also been given in these inexpensive little gift bags!
5.0 Great for filling with produce at your grocery sto
Comments about Product:Great for filling with produce at your grocery store or farmer's market. So much better than the countless plastic ones and then easy to transfer to reusable storage containers in your fridge. It would be very helpful, however, for the manufacturer to mark the different sizes with color-coded cords, it would make choosing the right size from a pile so much easier.
3.0 These bags are decent in quality; however, they ar
Comments about Product:These bags are decent in quality; however, they are too bulky for regular use at the grocery store. Instead, I've decided to save them for the farmer's market. I'll still grab one or two with my Chico Bags if I remember when I go grocery shopping, but the cashiers don't seem to care for them and there is no easy way to bring them to the store. Great for open air markets though.
Comments about Product:These bags are perfect. The sizes are great, they hold a lot of produce and they are washable (important because the veggies we get straight from our CSA are right out of the ground).
5.0 When I go grocery shopping I dread using the plast
Comments about Product:When I go grocery shopping I dread using the plastic produce bags, but was not aware that they made reusable produce bags until a classmate brought them to my attention during her speech on recycling and reusing products. I have purchased some of each, small and large; they work wonderfully. I am happy with all the products I have purchased and will be making more purchases in the future.
5.0 I purchased both large and small produce bags and
Comments about Product:I purchased both large and small produce bags and I absolutely love them! They are just the right size and are very durable. I was afraid the that the checkers at the registers would have a hard time seeing the produce in the bags, but it has not been a problem. I have recommended buying these bags to all my friends!
5.0 I ordered the mesh bags and I am using them when I
Comments about Product:I ordered the mesh bags and I am using them when I pick-up my organic produce at the organic garden I belong to. They have done away with plastic and these bags are just great. They are made well and wash well. I feel good using them and have done my best to avoid plastic whenever I can. I have also ordered tote bags from you in the past and they come in handy for so may things. They fold up to fit into your purse and they are there when you need them. I feel the prices are reasonable and they look great.
4.0 I use about ten or more of these every trip to the
Comments about Product:I use about ten or more of these every trip to the market. They never fail to get comments from other shoppers and the checkers, always favorable. They are easy to use and will accommodate anything from a few mushrooms to a big bok choy.
Comments about Product:These bags are so handy for heavy produce! The downside is I cannot use for storage in the refrigerator for items like lettuce as it will wilt so I have to transfer some produce to the plastic I reuse at home.
5.0 These bags are a wonderful way to cut down on the
Comments about Product:These bags are a wonderful way to cut down on the use of plastic. I use them in place of plastic produce bags. They are durable, hold a lot of heavy produce, and are easy for the cashier to use too. When I check out, the cashier can input the weight of the bag into the cash register since it is printed on the bag and they can see the produce through it without opening it up. They are so wonderful I intend to order more. They should last a long time.
5.0 These bags are very sturdy, easy to wash and large
Comments about Product:These bags are very sturdy, easy to wash and large enough to fit two bunches of broccoli. The weave is tight so you can't see through to the product making it a little frustrating for the checkout person at the grocery store. They will adapt- just like they have adapted to canvas. Great product, great price.
4.0 Nice, soft cotton--the only downside is that the t
Comments about Product:Nice, soft cotton--the only downside is that the thread is substantial enough that it's just about impossible to identify what's inside. This slows down the cashier in the supermarket checkout line, as they have to pull one of each from inside to identify it before weighing it. But it's fine for the farmer's market.
Comments about Product:These have been good so far. I try to weigh my produce first and then stick the label to the outside of the bag to prevent weighing the bags along with the produce. Every penny counts! Bringing shopping bags with me is such a habit now that taking along these produce bags is a snap. I have always felt like I wished I had an alternative to the plastic in the produce aisle, and now I have it!
4.0 i bought 3 small and 3 large, but i think i would'
Comments about Product:i bought 3 small and 3 large, but i think i would've been better off just getting all small ones since the large ones are hardly any bigger. i can fit about 6 bell peppers into a small bag and they're great for all other produce like tomatoes, lettuce, or cilantro/herbs. the large bags are still a bit short for corn on the cob and they get snagged due to the net design so i end up just putting them in the shopping cart w/ out a bag since i leave the husks on and then putting them in my reusable grocery bag at check out. i thought the net design would make it easier for the cashiers to see what the produce is, but they always open the bags to get a better view of the produce anyway. this is not a problem since it only takes a second to open up the draw string top. keep in mind that they are heavier than regular plastic bags, but it's better than using all those plastic bags. my local henry's market gives a 5 cents credit per bag for using your own.
Comments about Product:Works wonderfully. I even got a 5 cent rebate per bag at the grocery store. I'm single, so these bags are plenty big enough for me. A larger size would be nice for someone with a large family. Other than that - really like them
5.0 The bags are a perfect replacement for those plast
Comments about Product:The bags are a perfect replacement for those plastic bags we're all used to grabbing in the produce section at the grocery store. I take canvas bags to every store I go to, but I always wish I had something to put my vegetables in that was different but still eco friendly! I bought three of the large ones -
Comments about Product:These are a winner! Once we learned about the mostly plastic garbage heap the size of 2 states of Texas in the Pacific Ocean, we set a goal of plastic-free house...at least as far as bags and unneccessary containers. Produce bags were the hardest to give up, but, thanks to these see-through mesh bags, we are almost there.
5.0 At first I was skeptical that it would be difficul
Comments about Product:At first I was skeptical that it would be difficult to read the numbers on produce through these bags, but there was no need to be concerned. They are so much easier to handle than those darn plastic produce bags that always stick and are hard to open. The drawstring makes it easy to just pull it shut, and you don't have to worry about squeezing out all the air that gets trapped in plastic bags. So far I have not used these bags for anything really drippy or freshly washed, since the bags would get wet - wet stuff I just put in the cart. But I buy lots of apples, and these bags are perfect for them. I haven't had to wash them yet, but they seem very well-made and would likely hold up well to washing if it were necessary. Another great product!
Comments about Product:I love using these for my produce. It makes me feel better not grabbing the plastic bags. I'm glad I bought the mesh bags, it makes it easy for cashier to read the produce stickers.
Comments about Product:These cotton net bags are great. Obviously, they are great for reducing the waste and pollution of throw away plastic produce bags at the market. Then, of course, there is the "cool" factor when I whip them out at the store, not to mention the great feeling of moral superiority they give you. ;) I have also found many other uses for them, such as simplifying my travel by keeping various pieces of clothing secure in my bag and organized in hotel drawers. Also, tossing a few pairs of socks in a bag and laundering as a group means no lost socks!
5.0 Love the produce bags; I could never reuse the pla
Comments about Product:Love the produce bags; I could never reuse the plastic bags provided by the grocery. The large size is perfect for a bunch of apples. It's great b/c the grocer can see through the bag for the bar code. The product is constructed very well and reinforced at the pull-string top. If they get dirty, just rinse them and air dry b/c they are made of cotton! It is a great product. I'm glad I added them to my resuable bag collection.
1.0 I thought I would really like the bags, but I wash
Comments about Product:I thought I would really like the bags, but I washed them first and they shrunk significantly. They're almost too small to use for much now. If I hadn't thrown them in the dryer......maybe they would have been okay, but there was no instruction on the label so.....
5.0 These are still taking the check-out people at my
Comments about Product:These are still taking the check-out people at my grocery store by surprise. They just haven't seen that many of them! These bags make it very easy to eliminate many of the plastic produce/bulk foods bags I used to get at the store. The mesh is too big to use for everything -- sunflower seeds, for example, would fall right through -- but they are great for larger items like vegetables, herbs, and greens. They clean up easily in the washer and close tightly to keep your goodies inside.
Comments about Product:The bags will work well for produce. I recommend ordering larger size as dimensions vary, the 2 sizes end up very similar. Not sure anyone will ever use tare weight shown on tag, but it's not a bad idea.
Comments about Product:i love these bags! actually i prefer them to the solid bags. the net allows easier reading of PLUs and makes it easy to see what ive got in my produce drawer. will purchase more for friends and family.
Comments about Product:Your net reusable produce bags are great. They prevent just a little more plastic waste and are easy to remember and use. I keep them in my reusable grocery bags inbetween trips to the grocery. Other shoppers in the produce department always want to know where I got them. I hand out the Reusablebags.com cards that came with them.
5.0 I finally bought these bags about a month ago afte
Comments about Product:I finally bought these bags about a month ago after deciding that putting plastic produce bags into my reusable grocery bags was defeating the point of trying to use the reusable bags in the first place! So far, I really like these. Sure, they're gotten me a couple of weird looks from the cashiers or baggers, but they have never had problems seeing through the mesh to see what is inside. Overall, they're working exactly as I'd expected--and I'm very glad that I got the large size, especially for lettuce. I even blogged about them!
5.0 I'm very happy with the large size produce bags I
Comments about Product:I'm very happy with the large size produce bags I ordered. One check-out clerk has commented on them (positively). I gave one each to my three adult daughters to try out but haven't had any feed-back yet. I'm glad to have them!
Comments about Product:Great product. Can fit a lot of produce in them. I love how the market gives $0.05 off each time I use one. After a few trisp the bag will pay for itself and no more plastic bags.
5.0 I have been wanting to stop using the plastic prod
Comments about Product:I have been wanting to stop using the plastic produce bags for a while but couldn't find anything that the clerks could see through. I so much enjoy these cloth mesh bags! They are much better than the plastic ones. I even reordered and gave some to my family members as gifts and they like the bags as well. And, when they get dirty, I just wash and reuse. Wonderful!
4.0 I like the mesh because I can see the contents
Comments about Product:I like the mesh because I can see the contents. The bags launder well, but remember to line-dry them and do not put them in the dryer. Because these produce bags weigh a bit themselves, they are not ideal for very light bulk items, but they are great for the heavier fruits and veggies, especially potatoes and oranges. The bags are also not ideal if your grocery sprays its vegetables with water and the produce is very wet. Otherwise I am very pleased.
Comments about Product:I really like these produce bags. They have been great so far. I bought 10, and gave half of them to a good friend. I wasn't sure if the five I kept would be enough, but they really do hold quite a bit. I highly recommend them.
Comments about Product:The net produce bags are great. I get more comments about them, particularly where one can get them. I have started to order extra ones which I use a goodie bags for hostess gifts. They are always a hit. Personally, I use them every time I shop and it really cuts down on the waste of plastic. Thanks for making them available.
Comments about Product:These are fabulous bags. I have some of each size and they work well for all produce. The best features are: they are lightweight, strong, see through, and big enough to handle the quantities I buy.
5.0 The cotton net snack bags I just ordered are study
Comments about Product:The cotton net snack bags I just ordered are study, attractive and very usable! I had previously ordered a number of them and have been very pleased with them over the last year or so and these were ordered to make my collection meet all my shopping needs. They have received many compliments from grocery sales people and friends.
5.0 I purchased the Organic Cotton net producs bags an
Comments about Product:I purchased the Organic Cotton net producs bags and the reusable sandwich bag with the cute monkey print on it. I highly recommend both products! The quality is very good and I feel GREAT about drastically reducing the number of plastic bags my household uses. The first time I used my Organic Cotton produce bags at the grocery store, the cashier commented on how cool they were and asked where I got them. Naturally, I told him where and I also let him know that each produce bag saves 1000 plastic bags from being used. I've been telling a lot of people that lately! The reusable sandwich bag is great too! My fiance takes his sandwich to work in it and he has gotten compliments on it as well as questions as to where his co-workers can buy one too. Fortunately, the company website is printed on the bag, so you can never forget where you bought it. I'm so pleased to see the GREEN movement finally picking up steam. I used to get funny looks at the grocery store when I brought my reusable bags and now I'm getting applauded for it. I also see other customers using them too. Together, we can preserve the planet. Keep up the good work everyone!
5.0 I have used my bags many times already and I think
Comments about Product:I have used my bags many times already and I think they are great. I hate using the plastic produce bags but I also hate putting produce on the checkout belt, these solve the problem. I don't need to use any plastic now. It is a great product.
5.0 My New Year's resolution this year is to reduce my
Comments about Product:My New Year's resolution this year is to reduce my waste- especially my plastic waste. I am so happy to have found these organic cotton net produce bags. I stocked up on these, and have loved using them since. They work great in the grocery check out line because the cashier can easily see the items inside and read the produce code off the items. My favorite part of the product is the drawstring, rather than a zipper, closure- it makes the bags really easy to use. I even use these bags when I buy lettuce and it seems the cotton helps in absorbing all that excess water that grocery stores tend to spray on their produce- just be sure to take the lettuce out when you get home or else it will wilt!
5.0 We purchased mesh produce bags as part of our New
Comments about Product:We purchased mesh produce bags as part of our New Year's resolution for 2009. The most difficult thing has been remembering to use them! Old habits are hard to break. They shipped quickly and are good quality. The only improvement I could suggest is some means of making it easier for the grocery checker to see what we're buying without having to dump stuff out. I've tried putting the produce stickers on the outside of the bag but they don't want to stick. Maybe a panel that stickers could be affixed to?
Comments about Product:I really like these bags. I have so many uses for them....currently the large size I am using to keep my 6 month old sons toys in. Perfect size and the draw strings keep everything in.
5.0 I bought the large size net bags for my father for
Comments about Product:I bought the large size net bags for my father for Christmas. He didn't use them for produce, but to store loose items in a way that allows him to see what's in the bags. If they end up getting dirty, he can just wash them! He really liked them and I considered buying some for myself, but ended up with the non-net produce bags.
5.0 One time, having some nice pieces of leftover yard
Comments about Product:One time, having some nice pieces of leftover yardage, I made produce bags for myself and as gifts at a workshop, only to find out by some kind checker that they were actually costing me as much as 17 cents more per full bag. That, on one shopping trip may not be too much, but multiply it times 5 bags per trip,two trips or more per month, and you can see you are losing the pleasure of buying some lovely piece of cheese or a more expensive vegetable or fruit you might enjoy as an indulgence. True, it could be viewed as a donation toward cleaner air and soil, for not using plastic, but on the other hand, you can buy these great little lightweight cotton produce bags!! The net allows containment and provides lighter weight.
5.0 I use about 5 net produce bags when I go to the gr
Comments about Product:I use about 5 net produce bags when I go to the grocery. These are great - they easily hold several apples or a head of lettuce. The drawstring makes it easy to open & close and they are very to clean! I also wrapped Christmas presents in them so I can pass the word around!
Comments about Product:Love these! Got them for all my family as well. Decided to go with these rather than the solid ones because they are see-through so it's easier to tell what's what without having to open the bag. I think everyone should have them!
5.0 I recently ordered the cotton net produce bags, tw
Comments about Product:I recently ordered the cotton net produce bags, two happy sacks snack packs, and a To-Go Ware bamboo utensils set for my husband for Christmas. We already don't know how we lived without these products before we had them! The snack packs are cute, fun, and perfect for our needs. The produce bags are durable, practical, and as we are leaving the store we simply clip all their strings together with a metal clip, freeing up one of our reusable grocery bags for other groceries! And the utensils are beautifully made and my husband really enjoys using them. I have absolutely no complaints about anything--from the ease of using the website to the fast shipping to the marvelous products, I give Reuseablebags.com an A+++++++++! Marijean Rue
5.0 The cotton mesh bags are a wonderful alternative t
Comments about Product:The cotton mesh bags are a wonderful alternative to all the little plastic bags we acquire when shopping the produce section. Yes, they weigh a tad more than plastic, but that's the price I'm willing to pay to eliminate all that plastic. Plus they have a lovely feel to them, as if you are shopping in a farmer's market. Of course, they are perfect for a real farmer's market.
5.0 great product i love the bags but make sure you kn
Comments about Product:great product i love the bags but make sure you know if you are getting a solid material like a sack or a net material like a web. I bought both and prefer the web which is not like these bags. With that said I still like these bags and they go with me to the grocery store.
5.0 Even in the organic market, these drew comments an
Comments about Product:Even in the organic market, these drew comments and praise--very cool and a great way to take the basic bag to the next level and avoid the extra plastic bags which we usually put in the bigger bag.
Comments about Product:These are great! I use them for produce and love the fact that I can throw them in the washer if they get dirty! After about 4 trips to the store, they have held up wonderfully to the weight of apples and protected my greens or delicate fruits.
Comments about Product:Awesome, Awesome, Awesome! The large packs full of oranges, limes, etc, even long green onions and huge eggplants. The small ones are perfect for garlic and probably about 2 large onions, to give you size ideas. These are awesome!
5.0 I recently purchased the organic cotton net produc
Comments about Product:I recently purchased the organic cotton net produce bags to round out Christmas presents of other green goodies and bought a few for my own family as well. We had our first completely plastic free trip to the grocery store on Tuesday and were thrilled. These bags provided for that final step! We like the net style because the cashier has an easy time seeing what we have and the construction still seems incredibly durable. I am sure we will be able to use these for a long time!
5.0 I've received so many compliments on my fruit and
Comments about Product:I've received so many compliments on my fruit and veggie bags. The seem to keep the produce lasting longer and they look 300x better than a crummy, no good plastic bag. Thanks!!!
Comments about Product:I use my produce bags weekly. Here in the midwest the cashiers don't know what to think about them, they always think I am purchasing the bags and I have to explain what they are. It is also hard for the cashiers to find the produce code stickers. My husband complains about the weight of the bags and when you pay by the pound... Even with the problems, I would buy them again. Better than taking home more plastic bags!
Comments about Product:These are really great.. I leave them with my reusable shopping bags to take to the farmers' market and grocery store... I love that I don't have to use plastic produce bags anymore!
Comments about Product:I bought the large cotton net bag. This one I actually used for fruit. I put about 5 apples in it and had no problems at all - I could have put in several more. I also agree with other comments the names are a bit confusing but this one is perfect bc you can see through it. I recommend it to anyone and everyone! [These bags are also great for many other uses. My dad used a plastic bag to bring his lunch into work everyday so I gave him the large cotton muslin one to use instead. He surprising has embraced it and really likes it! I also bought the snack sized cotton muslin one. It is really to small to hold more then two apples: I used it for little [non-food] items that I would normally stick in a plastic baggie to keep together.]
5.0 Very nicely constructed, very sturdy and hold a BU
Comments about Product:Very nicely constructed, very sturdy and hold a BUNCH of produce. Just last week, I put almost 8 pounds of sweet potatoes in one of them without a problem - those crappy little plastic bags at the supermarket can't do that. The only downside is that the checkers at the market can't see the produce codes through the mesh as easily as I thought they'd be able to. I've taken to grabbing one of the stickers off an item and sticking it to the drawstring on the bag to help them out. Otherwise, very, very handy bag for all sorts of stuff.
5.0 We use our produce bags at least once a week and l
Comments about Product:We use our produce bags at least once a week and love them. They're easy to keep clean, easy to store, and help keep the plastic out of the landfills. We especially like the mesh produce bags since the clerk at the checkout can see what's inside without opening the bag. We've recommended your products to several people.
Comments about Product:I love these bags. They are very strong, easy to use, easy to wash and have saved me from getting so many plastic bags. I take them with me everytime I go to the grocery and always someone askes me where I got them. Highly recommend. I am about to order more.
Comments about Product:I love the cotton produce bags! The mesh weave allows you to see what's inside so the checkout person can quickly process the groceries. Another store I visit provides plastic bags and weighing stations for customers to use. I love using the mesh bags instead of the plastic and the price stickers affix well and can be easily removed at home. The bags do add weight to your purchase, so when possible, I weigh the produce b4 putting it in my bag. They wash beautifully and dry quickly when spread flat. I've also carried my lunch to work in them. Ann C.
Comments about Product:These net produce bags are just the thing. I've been wanting to not only stop using plastic/paper grocery bags, but plastic produce bags as well. These are well constructed and as light as air, so you can feel confident that they're not adding to the weight of your produce when it comes time for the check-out scale. I've only had them a couple of weeks and have had several fellow grocery shoppers comment on what a great idea they are.
Comments about Product:These bags are great! I ordered small and large size, but the small size are actually perfect (so I'll be ordering more!). They're lightweight but strong, easy to store in the trunk so I always have them, and easy for the cashiers to ring up.
Comments about Product:I love your produce bags. I had been using reusable grocery bags for many years and bemoaned the many flimsy plastic bags I had to put my produce in; plastic bags that could not be reused for anything and wound up being discarded. Then I discovered your website and these wonderful reusable produce bags. It would be helpful to the checkout people if the holes in the bag could be made slightly larger to make it easier to see through.
5.0 Bought one large and one small for just the two of
Comments about Product:Bought one large and one small for just the two of us. We love them and the people at the grocery store thought they were pretty neat as well. We put several items in the small and it held them with no problem. The large bag is perfect for several apples or other larger fruits. Love them!
5.0 Those cotton net bags are the greatest thing since
Comments about Product:Those cotton net bags are the greatest thing since sliced bread. I use them for produce at the grocery or farm market but I also use them for my lunch bag. They remind me of the cotton net bags my mother used to have for laundry - big ones, the size of large pillow cases. You might want to think about that size. I do like them an awful lot. Thank you for the quality of the fabric, it makes all the difference. Joan R
5.0 I don't know of a way you could possible improve t
Comments about Product:I don't know of a way you could possible improve the product I purchased. I had a dilema with potatoes, when you purchase them in the store, they are in a plastic bag, which retains moisture. Most of the potatoes have wet spots, and spoil quickly. To tried to resolve this problem and I would remove them from the plastic sack and place them into a basket. This helped retain the quality longer but I knew what they needed was air circulation. I found your site and purchased 4 organic cotton ones, which hold 5# nicely and have them hanging in my pantry. I have not had one spoiled potato since. They are dry and pretty as can be. Your product is so wonderful, they would make a nice practical gifts for any homemaker. I endorse your product 100%, and could not be happier. Quality, price, every aspect, a job well done by you, thank you. Joan Price
Comments about Product:Really good product. What can I say. It's handy, sturdy, & looks clean & it looks like something that will last for many years. I like the draw string. I also like that the tag has the Tare weight on it. I use it at a local health food store & of course they readily accept it. I haven't used it at a big chain supermarket yet, but probably will soon & see what they say. The only drawback I see is that certain things get caught on the netting, such as bananas, so have to be careful about placing such odd-shaped items. Other than that I highly recommend it.
5.0 These bags are great for produce and very sturdy!
Comments about Product:These bags are great for produce and very sturdy! I love not having to use the plastic bags at the store and at the checkout counter, the clerks have even offered to take the produce out of the bag, weigh it and then re-bag.
5.0 I ordered another set of produce bags to give as C
Comments about Product:I ordered another set of produce bags to give as Christmas gifts because I am so happy with the first set I ordered. Amazing how people in the grocery stores and veggie stands take a second look at my bags. I have been extremely pleased with them.
Comments about Product:I love these produce bags. You still have to take the stuff out of them though when you check out or you'll pay more with the weight of the bag but it is worth it. Now we can do completly plastic free shopping. I thought the "large" size would hold more than it does - it is about the size of one of the standard plastic produce bags.
Comments about Product:I love these bags. I feel so good when I use them, knowing that I don't have to use those plastic produce bags that wind up in the garbage, in landfills, and then in our waterways, killing seabirds and other ocean creatures! Plastic produce bags should be banned!
Comments about Product:These produce bags are terrific. I didn't realize how many of those little plastic bags I was using until I got these. They have a nice wide opening and pull tight to secure the goods. They rinse easily if needed and attract attention at the market. I truly love them and have recommended them to friends. I will never go back to using plastic again. GreenGal
Comments about Product:Plastic produce bags are gone forever! YEAH!!! They are very durable and being net, there is no reason to remove the produce for the checker to see it. Great for so many other uses also. Too many to list.
Comments about Product:These bags are fantastic! They are sturdy, easy to use, and save so many needless plastic bags. I don't know about you, but I never reuse those darn flimsy little plastic produce bags, so I would much rather not take them off the roll at the market to begin with. I am also trying to maximize the organic in my life and minimize the plastic, so these are just perfect for me. It is convenient that the bag weight (tare weight) is printed inside on a tag. Also of benefit is that produce is less likely to mold in this breathable bag than a closed plastic bag. Only negative point I can think of is that it is hard to see through the bag to know what's in it, so you always have to open it up.
Comments about Product:Absolutely loved! Strong bags, very roomy, produce is easily identified in bag.(You would have to have very poor eyesite not to know what was inside) Very worth the time and money. The shipping was lightening quick. I bought the cotton mesh bags as well and would advise to buy both.
5.0 Felt guilty using all those plastic bags for produ
Comments about Product:Felt guilty using all those plastic bags for produce and decided to try the fabric mesh. They work great - draw string holds the bag closed. I think the bag will hold up for a long time to come. I got both sizes and they seem to do the job for all produce and fruit. I flip the tag out and stick the produce code on the label for the cashier. No clerk so far has known how to reduce the weight for the mesh bag, but I just remind them to give the .05 cents for each reusable bag.
5.0 I was impressed that they are so incredibly lightw
Comments about Product:I was impressed that they are so incredibly lightweight. The drawstring closure keeps everything inside and I feel great knowing that I have finally found a good alternative to the wasteful, flimsy plastic produce bags. I also like knowing that the bags are made from organic cotton by people who are paid a fair wage for their work. I highly recommend these bags and will definitely be making more purchases from this company!
Comments about Product:I love these bags! I feel no guilt strolling down the produce aisle at the market--no more plastic bags for me! One thing I would mention, is that the cashiers have trouble figuring out exactly what's inside. Hope this helps!
Comments about Product:I like them a lot. saves me using grocery store plastic or paper. For how easy it is to order (or make your own!) canvas, string,etc bags, I would like to see grocery stores NOT provide anything and if you need a bag, you have to pay for the plastic or paper. Works in European countries!
4.0 These bags are very handy in the produce section o
Comments about Product:These bags are very handy in the produce section or at the farmer's market. Whenever I use them people ask me where I got them! One suggested improvement: making them with wider mesh so its easier for the checkout person to see what is inside.
Comments about Product:The produce bags are great. It always seemed stupid to me to bring my own bags to the store then fill a bunch of plastic bags with produce. They are also useful for wrapping wine bottles to keep them from clanking together. Every time I use them someone asks me where I got them from, and I tell them! If I could suggest one improvement, making them a little lighter would be good, if possible, because when I tell store clerks the tare weight they look at me like I I'm crazy. Still, .06 lb is not going to break the bank. Unless I'm buying wild mushrooms or something.
5.0 I was worried that the check out people at the sup
Comments about Product:I was worried that the check out people at the supermarket would be annoyed looking for the produce codes with the bags. That is why I chose to buy the mesh bags. I have never had a problem and I love that I do not waste any plastic bags when food shopping. They are also the perfect size for my produce. I use the big ones for bok choy sized things and the small ones for fruit.
Comments about Product:A great product! The bags stretch and hold quite a lot of produce -- I put 10 apples in a large bag without a problem. The check-out clerk had no trouble seeing the produce labels through the net bag and complimented me on using them. The bags seem sturdy and should last a long time. A great companion to my Acme reusable shopping bags.
Comments about Product:I love my mesh produce bags. I use them every time I go to the whole foods store. I like the fact that you can see through the bag.I can usually fit a few pieces of fruit, like apples, in each bag and the drawstring makes it easy to keep everything inside. I would love to see them in a sightly larger size but other than that, well worth the price.
Comments about Product:These produce bags are wonderful. You can see through the mesh so there is no problem at check-out. They are very durable and easy to use. I could not be happier with them. Every little bit helps the environment and this is such as easy way to contribute.
Comments about Product:I love my produce bags. I ordered a bunch so I could give a couple to all of my closes friends. They also love them and I anticipate will order more as well. Thanks for selling this item.
Comments about Product:These are well worth the investment. They are very sturdy, the cashiers do well enough with seeing through them to get the produce code (though it depends on the cashier!), which was my biggest worry, and why I got the netting rather than solid. The size is my only semi-complaint. While the big bags are large enough to accommodate most produce, they could still be a bit larger (for larger/longer items like celery stalks and broccoli). It still works well enough, and I wouldn't let that stop you from getting them -- big items like celery/broccoli will just stick out a little bit at the top. The biggest reason to get them is all the plastic you're saving.

Comments about Product:I am personal Chef so I am setting up example when I shop and using these organic cotton Net Produce Sacks is a great way of saving thousands of plastic bags. I am even ordering more for my friends so they can enjoy what I already have! Jakub Mejstrik Chef77 Premier member of USPCA
Comments about Product:I am so happy with these produce bags. I did not have an answer for all those thin plastic bags I was throwing away when I bought produce, but now I'm not wasting plastic. I bought four, two for myself and two for my mother, who actually uses them. I've decided to give them as past of my Holiday gifts in the hope that my friends will use them as well.
5.0 I really like the Organic Cotton Net Produce Sacks
Comments about Product:I really like the Organic Cotton Net Produce Sacks. I ordered the mesh bags at the same time so I could evaluate the better of the two, and much to my surprise, I have different uses for both the mesh and net styles. So, I will continue to use them both.
5.0 the only complaint I have about the product is tha
Comments about Product:the only complaint I have about the product is that they aren't as "see through" as it seems. However, they are the best you can do without using the plastic. It still beats the alternative, I just wish it wasn't so inconvenient to see what was in them.
Comments about Product:I love my organic net produce bags! Now, not only do I skip the plastic grocery bags, I can also skip the plastic in the produce aisle. This is a great product and everyone should have a few. It's just a very simple step we can take to help fight against global warming and natural resource depletion. Be sure to keep your reuseable bags in your car, that way you've always got them with you.
5.0 These bags hold a lot of produce and still allow t
Comments about Product:These bags hold a lot of produce and still allow the scaner at the check out stand to see what is nsde and see the product code. And they are washable. I use them inside out, so the tare label is visable. On rare occasion, the checker even gives me credit for that tare weight. These bags are great and now a part of my shopping routine whether it is at a farmers market or a major supermarket.
5.0 I just purchased 5 of the cotton vegetable bags an
Comments about Product:I just purchased 5 of the cotton vegetable bags and I love them. I collect all my veggies and fruit in them; eliminating the use of the plastic bags that are available in the grocery stores. Many people have commented about them and I have given them your website to browse.
Comments about Product:I love the bags I ordered. They have been put to good use at the grocery store. Although, they seem to confuse the checkout staff at my local store. I am slowly educating them on the harm that plastic bags can do on the environement. Thank you for a wonderful product!
Comments about Product:Greetings! We used to feel bad about the plastic bags we used when we purchased our produce. Or, the person at the register was annoyed when we (trying not to use the plastic bags) showed up with loose produce. We recently purchased multiples of each size of your Reusable produce sacks. We love them and so do our friends. They make great gift bags too with some raffia and an herb or flower tied to them. We'll be ordering more sometime, I'm sure. Thank for what you do! The Nelsons PS. We LOVE the little "Plastic Bags Blow" stickers. How do we get more, so we can give them with our bags?
5.0 I decided to buy the produce sack after seeing how
Comments about Product:I decided to buy the produce sack after seeing how many of the plastic bags I use when buying fruit and produce. I'm so glad I did!! The bag is very easy to use! The only drawback is that I wish i would have bought the bigger sack! Now I'm going to buy the bigger one to fit more produce in!
Comments about Product:I like these bags. I use them for fruit and produce at the grocery store. They are easier for me to fill than messing with the plastic bags. I'm not very good at tying knots with those plastic bags, and with the cotton bags I just have to cinch them up. A lot of people I meet are quite impressed, as well.
Comments about Product:I love using these at the store. I always felt kind of silly putting plastic produce bags into my reusable grocery sacks, so I looked high and low for something like this. I live in suburban Texas where the idea of bringing your own bags is just starting to catch on. People practically accost me in the grocery store to find out where I got these produce bags. They hold a ton of prodcue and are well worth the cost.
5.0 I bought both these bags and the solid cotton bags
Comments about Product:I bought both these bags and the solid cotton bags and like these much better. It is very easy to see what is in the bag, they stretch and have held up very well over the past year. I rinse or wash them out in the kitchen sink if needed. I shop all summer and fall at a farmer's market and an organic farm and have been asked many times where I found these. I always refer to reusuablebags.com.
Comments about Product:These produce bags are great. I bought 3small and 3large- probably could have just bought the large ones. They are not too big but do hold all the potatos and bananas I buy for the week. I put all the produce bags into one of the large ones along with my Acme workhorse resuable bags(bought on this site too!) so I have only one thing to grab when I go shopping. I receive a lot of looks and positive comments at the store. I'm not worried about any extra charge for the weight of the bags- there is a number on the tags if you want to have the checker adjust. At one store, they give you 5 cents for every bag of you own that you use. I would recommend these to a friend.
5.0 I recently purchased 8 of the reusable netted prod
Comments about Product:I recently purchased 8 of the reusable netted produce bags in both the large and small sizes and just want to say how much I love them! I am always excited to use them at the grocery store! The quality is very high and they are extremely strong and well made. I have not had a problem at the checkout because it is so easy to see through them, and I am always approached on where I go them. I am now purchasing these bags for all of my family members! LOVE them!
Comments about Product:This is a great product. I got the large and it is big enough for a family of four or more. The cashiers at my local Whole Foods love them too. The cashiers still have to open the bags to look at the produce codes.
5.0 So far, these produce bags have been a fantastic p
Comments about Product:So far, these produce bags have been a fantastic purchase. Initially I was skeptical as the bags appeared to have shrunk considerably after washing. However, they stretch out again with use. The large bags are perfect for leafy greens, the smaller bags for fruit. The cashiers at the grocery store a bit flummouxed when these bags come through their check out line - no better way to spread the word.
Comments about Product:Functional, strong, and wash well. The small size is just right for small bunches of herbs, apricots, etc. while the large bag is great for collards, lettuce, etc. They're also great in that you can see through the mesh when it's time to sort out the groceries. Bought a few of each size and love using them. They absorb well so even the more wet vegetables virtually don't leak much into the grocery bag.
Comments about Product:These are great! I bought the hemp bags and thought, you know, I really need to stop using those store produce bags too! The sizes first seemed small when I got the package but they fit all my produce perfectly. I bought a few small and large size. They are a great addition to your tote bags!
4.0 Great sacks--however, I wish they were even bigger
Comments about Product:Great sacks--however, I wish they were even bigger! I purchased the large size, but for long greens and bulky vegetables like broccoli, an even larger size would be helpful. They wash up fine in the washing machine (but make sure you line dry them or they'll shrink!) Also, maybe everyone already knew this, but I made the mistake of storing my veggies in these sacks in the refrigerator--they retained moisture and made my veggies soft and rubbery. From then on I unpacked the veggies and just stored them in my crisper drawers--problem solved. They do add weight at the grocery store check-out, but at Whole Foods the cashier will pre-weigh and empty bag and then subtract that amount for all your vegetables. Overall, I would recommend these bags--I feel good about using less plastic every week.
4.0 Produce sacks are good, but could be improved if t
Comments about Product:Produce sacks are good, but could be improved if there were some attachment that I could stick the produce pricing sticker to. Where I shop, we have to pre-price everything and attach sticker to our produce bags.
Comments about Product:I bought one of these as an experiment. I wasn't sure I'd want to use these for all my produce, but got one to use just for apples. I've not had any trouble with check-out, though baggers tend to not put this in another bag (and I bring plenty!) even though this doesn't have (and shouldn't have) handles. Not a huge problem, but worth mentioning. The drawstring opens a bit too easily/unexpectedly sometimes, but otherwise is fine.
Comments about Product:These are a great product. They are a bit expensive, but if you invest in 10, you get a small discount, and I expect these to last for many years. They are extremely sturdy. They also seem to protect delicate produce (such as ripe pears) much better than plastic bags because the thick soft cotton strands provide more cushion. The "large" size is equivalent to a standard plastic produce bag.
Comments about Product:Great prodct! Very useful, easy to pack in the car and always have on hand. PLUS, I leave my produce in these bags when I put them in my veggie/fruit drawers in the fridge and my produce lasts much longer than when I'd leave them in those junky plastic bags from the store. Nothing seems to rot anymore!
5.0 I love using these - I was feeling badly that I wo
Comments about Product:I love using these - I was feeling badly that I would always buy organic produce but was using so many plastic bags. I first tried reusing the plastic ones, but worried about bacteria buildup, I love the fact that these can go into the washer! I usually get great comments from clerks and other customers when I huse them - one woman even told me that I was her hero!
Comments about Product:The cotton net produce bags are wonderful. Quality and workmanship well worth the price. I love going to the grocery store and not having to use plastic produce bags. Buying from reusablebags.com makes me proud in many ways. I have an excellent product that works as promised; I have purchased a fair trade product which helps promote sustainable business and (iii) I am helping the environment by reducing plastic consumption and purchasing an organic cotton product.
Comments about Product:I love the produce bags. They are easy to use and it is great that you can see the items in the bag. Every time I go to the store and use them I get comments from customers or employees on how cool my veggie bags are. I will be handing out the tags with your website to all that inquire on my bags and hopefully many more people will start to use produce bags.
Comments about Product:These are a great substitute for plastic. If the mesh were a little wider, the checkers would have an easier time identifying what's in them, however. But they also like the mesh bags, and our market gives us a 5 cent credit for each one.
Comments about Product:These bags are great! I have used them every time I go to the grocery store and hate it when I forget to take them. The cashiers seem to have no problem reading the stickers on fruit and vegetables through the weave and I have never gotten an attitude for using them. If you hate those plastic produce bags, buy these bags! If you buy larger quantities of fruit and veggies, I recommend you get the large size bags.
5.0 I loved the large and small netted produce bags
Comments about Product:I loved the large and small netted produce bags. I can cinch the top with the drawstring, peek inside the netting to see what's inside, and easily remove the stickers each time I weigh new food in the bag.
Comments about Product:These bags are excellent. I have the samll size and they hold plenty of produce for two people. They are strong and lightweight. Many people stop me in my produce market and ask me where I got them. Maybe ReusableBags could print up some little paper I.D. slips and send them out with each order, to be given out to all the people who ask about these wonderful bags. I'm not kidding, two people actually stopped and wrote down the name of your company! A marvelous product. I'll be doing business with you again, absolutely.
Comments about Product:These bags are well constructed and sturdy. Grocery store clerks don't seem to object as they did with my cotton muslin bags. On chain gives me a 5 cent credit for using my own shopping bags and that includes my produce bags. I do dislike the cold water only wash, it would be better if they were made from preshrunk cotton thread.
Comments about Product:I love 'em! The cashiers always look confused at first, then say "Oh my gosh, what a great idea!" I think these are even more valuable and necessary than reusable grocery bags, since there's hardly any way to reuse plastic produce bags. A must have!
5.0 Another product that works great and really helps
Comments about Product:Another product that works great and really helps cut down waste. They shrunk a little after the first wash, but that was largely my fault as I disregarded the "handwash/air dry" recommendations. They mostly stretched out when I reused them. I'm about to purchase the solid sacks to use for bread items, etc from the grocery/bakery so the food will be totally covered...
Comments about Product:All plastic and paper bags now cost $0.20 in Seattle's grocery stores. These bags are easy to use, clean, and stick in a pocket on one's way to the store. The only downside of using the cotton produce bag is the occasional grocery cashier who can't figure out what to do with the tare weight of the bag and makes me empty the contents at checkout.
Comments about Product:I love the bags...the large bags are so roomy. I feel so much better about using organic cotton, and the fact that I can reuse the bags over and over. And, if they get dirty, I wash them!
Comments about Product:I love my new cotton produce bags. My sweet potatoes always ripped the bags and fell out and I felt guilty unloading all those plastic bags out of my canvas grocery sacs. Thank you!
Comments about Product:I think these bags are pretty great. To make the checkout process easier, I weighed my fruit and printed out a bar code sticker, like I would if I was doing self-checkout, and then I stuck it to the mesh bag so the cashier could easily scan it. The cashier acted like he didn't know what to do and ended up looking inside the bag anyway. The mesh does make it somewhat difficult to read the sticker codes on the fruit, but that is another reason I made my own bar code. This is actually a good product, but I think it is going to require more cashier training!
Comments about Product:The cotton produce bags I bought are great. The cashiers can still easily read the codes on the items. I bought the small size and I've found they're not big enough for broccoli so I'll have to buy some large as well.
Comments about Product:These are great! I love that I don't have to use those nasty plastic ones anymore. I bought a few in each size so that I have plenty. I keep them right in my reusable shopping bags so I never forget them. These bags are well constructed so I am sure I will have them for a very long time. Do something small to help our planet in a big way...Buy these!!!!
Comments about Product:I got a couple of these bags.The very first time I used one at the grocery store,the check out clerk commented on "what a great bag this is" and wanted to know if I got it there. He commented again before I left his line-the bag is very user friendly.
Comments about Product:I like using these. They are light and easy to bring along to the grocery store. Also, I like knowing that I am not contributing to the overuse of useless plastic bags that eventually pollute our environment.
5.0 I received my reusable bags and they are simply th
Comments about Product:I received my reusable bags and they are simply the best! I have tried other bags, but none compare. They arrived quickly; the communication was excellent; and I couldn't be happier! Definately I will order again. Thank you!
Comments about Product:These are great. I recommend them without reservation. They are convenient, stash in a purse easily and are useful beyond carrying produce. In fact, they would make a fun summer purse! I look forward to using them at the Farmer's market this year and beyond.
Comments about Product:These are great- I love them! Very lightweight, and it's great not having to just put the fruit in cart to roll around. The drawstring top helps everying stay in the bag. Great product!!
Comments about Product:I'm happy with the reusable bags. And I'm happy that you've spearheaded this cause. Plastic bags are a pet peeve of mine. I've been wondering if there are solutions to the use of plastic in all purchased products? Even though I'm using less plastic bags, nearly everything I buy has plastic. Isn't this just as bad for the environment?
Comments about Product:These are a must! I need more in fact. We purchased 4 of them (with the holes) and use them all the time! Including keeping the fruit/veges in them in the frig. I truly think they are keeping our produce fresh longer! The see through (holes) are a must, because the clerk has an easier time seeing what is in the bag and has never had to take out the items to see, then scan as with the other bags. They hold quite a bit; i.e. 3 stalks of brocolli, but are small enough to stick into the stuff sack that came with our grocery sacks.
Comments about Product:These are GREAT! And they get a lot of attention at the grocery store. I've compared the weight of fruit in these bags versus plastic and there really is no difference. I highly recommend these bags to everyone.
4.0 I live in a place where you most people aren't awa
Comments about Product:I live in a place where you most people aren't aware of new products to cut down the use of plastic materials, so when I took these to the chain grocery store in my neighborhood they were a little confused. The bag is a really great idea because I never end up reusing the small bags and had accumulated a very large stash. The only problem I have with it is the visibility of the contents. The bag is marketed so that cashiers can see the items in the bags, however the netting isn't quite big enough. The cashier had a hard time and ended up having to open up the bag, therefore defeating the intent of buying the more expensive version of this bag.
5.0 I've been using this produce bag since the end of
Comments about Product:I've been using this produce bag since the end of December and I love it. Sometimes it's a little inconvenient for the cashiers to have to figure out what is inside, but for the most part, they know that oranges are oranges and have the produce code memorized. If they aren't sure what is in it, they ask or undo the slip knot that I tie in the top for easy access. Cashiers have had very positive feedback on the bag, saying that it was very "neat" or "a great idea" and no one has ever complained. I would highly recommend these to anyone.
3.0 Bags are a good idea but the cashier cannot see wh
Comments about Product:Bags are a good idea but the cashier cannot see what is in the bag and when you get it home you cannot see what is being stored in it. The bags are a great idea but they need to have larger holes or make them see thru.
Comments about Product:Love my new produce bags. I was a shopper who spent way too much time trying to open those flimsy plastic bags on the roll in the produce department. Now, in addition to helping our planet, I no longer have to struggle (and sometimes ask for help!) with the plastic bags. Have been using them for about 2 weeks now. Some of the tags/barcodes on your produce will still not be visible through the mesh, but its not a big deal to expose enough of the item to make it visible. I'm getting some strange looks from the cashiers, but I just smile and keep re-using!
5.0 The produce sacks are terrific It seemed so wrong
Comments about Product:The produce sacks are terrific It seemed so wrong to me when I was putting organic produce in a plastic bag! I purchased the large bags and found them to be so easy to use and they hold a large amount of produce. The draw string closes neat and quick and you don't have to worry about the produce coming out of the bag--and no twist ties needed! Wonderful! Easy for the check out person to view what type of produce you are buying. I am going to buy more and this time get some of the smaller bags. I highly recommend purchasing these bags as they are well made, easy to use and most of all help eleminate plastic bags!!
4.0 These confuse the checkers at my grocery store a b
Comments about Product:These confuse the checkers at my grocery store a bit, but to me it's worth the effort they make to see what's in the bag. I hate those plastic produce bags! My husband is reluctant to use them because he feels they add more weight on the grocery scale. He tries to sneak plastic bagged items into the cart. Maybe a bit looser weave would make it more pleasing to the checkers and my man! Overall, they are worth the price.
5.0 These sacks are a far more convenient and healthy
Comments about Product:These sacks are a far more convenient and healthy way of taking your produce home versus the plastic bags offered in the produce section of most grocery stores. I keep nine of them stuffed into a tenth, and they stay in the grocery bags in my car, ready for my next food run. That is, unless they're holding produce in my fridge!
Comments about Product:They are wonderful. I love using them in the produce section and people really seem interested in what I'm using rather than the plastic bags. I get a lot of "thumbs up" and smiles and it makes me very happy that I'm doing my part for the environment. AND they are so durable. I can put heavy produce in them and I don't have any problems at all. Thank you so much!
Comments about Product:Perfect alternative to plastic produce bags. With these bags, we are now a plastic bag-free family! The large bags work well and are spacious. They seem to be well constructed- should last a long time. I wish I saw more people using bags like these.
4.0 I absolutely love the bags I ordered and will defi
Comments about Product:I absolutely love the bags I ordered and will definitely get more. The fabric is strong and of high quality, especially for the price. Unfortunately, the bags are smaller than quoted, the large size being 3" shorter on the length alone, which means it doesn't fit everything I need to put inside. I ordered four of each size, and all of them were measurably smaller than stated. Even so, they are the best thing I've found for produce.
5.0 These little bags are a great alternative to using
Comments about Product:These little bags are a great alternative to using the plastic bags at the store. They do add a tiny bit of weight to your produce. The clerks at my local store usually just take the produce out of the bag to weigh.
Comments about Product:I love these produce sacks - I bought 10! Five for me and five to give to friends. I can fit so much produce in them. I love how they cinch close so the produce won't fall out and how they're so strong. No more plastic produce bags for me. I highly recommend!!!
5.0 The net bags are great for grouping produce at the
Comments about Product:The net bags are great for grouping produce at the market or grocery store. But mesh bags are better for storing fragile produce like lettuce. Since the small and large bags are nearly the same size, I would in retrospect only order the larger size.
4.0 I bought 4 of these bags and really like them so f
Comments about Product:I bought 4 of these bags and really like them so far. They are a good size for lettuce, apples, etc. and are big enough for my needs. I haven't tried washing them yet, so I'm not sure if shrinkage will be an issue. They aren't all that see through, but it's no big deal. I just tell the checkout person what's in them and they never bother to go through the hassle of opening them up.
5.0 I have used the produce bags and they work great
Comments about Product:I have used the produce bags and they work great. The store that I buy produce from in the winter was able to calibrate the scale, so the slight increase in weight over the plastic produce bags in the grocery store, was not an issue. I would have paid the extra knowing that I was doing something good for the enviornment, but it was just an extra surprise when I found out I didn't have to. I have recommended them to my friends.
Comments about Product:Fantastic product!!! For a long time now, I've been reusing the plastic produce bags from the grocery store. . hate those things!!! This is the perfect alternative - holds lots and the net/mesh fabric is easy for the checker to see through to get the product codes!!!
5.0 i absolutely love the cotton produce bags I purcha
Comments about Product:i absolutely love the cotton produce bags I purchased. I used them everytime I shop for produce. They're light weight and cashier can ee through them well enough to weigh at check out. I have recommended them to several friends and family members. I'm thrilled to be done with those plastic produce bags that tear and can't be recycled.
Comments about Product:Once again, the quality is fantastic! The also hold a lot, though they shrink up quite a bit in the wash...the venders at the farmer's market have been very impressed, at the tiny ethnic grocery they're a little more mystified. My only complaint is that it's difficult/impossible to tell what's inside them, the netting isn't very see-through.
3.0 Strong enough, but adds a little weight compared t
Comments about Product:Strong enough, but adds a little weight compared to rolled plastic produce bags in the store - not convenient when buying produce you'd rather not take out of the bag for weighing, such as beans, broccoli etc. No good for storing in the fridge. How about a very thin resuable bag with a zip enclosure to keep food fresh in cold storage?
Comments about Product:I absolutely love these. I hated wasting all those plastic bags. I like that these are mesh so the checkers can see what's in them. I haven't had any problems with them at the store. The only drawback is that when your produce is really wet the moisture isn't contained in the bag.
5.0 I have been using these for a couple years now, I
Comments about Product:I have been using these for a couple years now, I just ordered more so I can avoid plastic produce bags all together. They add no weight to the scale and are very strong. I can put several pounds of apples into one and it holds up well. Have caution when washing though they do tend to shrink quite a bit. If you are only going to buy one type of reusable bag, get these. Plastic grocery sacks can be reused at times, produce bags just go right in the trash.
5.0 This is probably my favorite product from your sit
Comments about Product:This is probably my favorite product from your site (so far!) because I didn't have a 're-use' for those little plastic produce bags. While these net bags do add a tiny bit of weight, and therefore cost, to my produce, it's worth it.
5.0 I received these terrific produce bags quickly and
Comments about Product:I received these terrific produce bags quickly and I've already used them on several occasions. They are easily washable (hang dry) and hold lots of produce, e.g., 8 apples, 6 crowns of broccoli, etc. The checker found it helpful to have the holes in the bags so she could see the produce number during checkout. My only complaint is about storage. I have Envirosax grocery bags that have 5 bags which roll, snap and store in a 6 x 4 pouch. If these produce sacks could have the same sort of storage ability, it would be so helpful! Highly recommended, though.
5.0 These bags are great, only perhaps a little small
Comments about Product:These bags are great, only perhaps a little small (I ordered the large size). The large mesh produce bags are larger, but then you can't see through them. The net is nice so checkers don't have to ask or open the bag.
Comments about Product:We love using the cotton produce sacks. Not only does it minimize the garbage created by plastic produce bags, but it keeps our produce from wilting and molding from the condensation that forms in the plastic bags. Our only gripe is that even with the net, it is difficult for the checkout people to see what is in the bags.
5.0 These are very handy and add little to no weight t
Comments about Product:These are very handy and add little to no weight to the produce on the scale. The clerks at all the stores have not been hindered by them at all, only curious to where I got them. I gave them as gifts (along with reusable grocery bags) to my family, all to great satisfaction. Will probably get the solid ones for free grains and nuts at the whole foods store, as that is the only drawback of these so far.
Comments about Product:The bags are great! I gave them away as Christmas presents and got rave reviews from the recipients. The large size is just big enough for regular produce and farmer's market shopping. I highly recommend them. (-=
Comments about Product:These are great! The people who worked at the grocery store (Stop N Shop) became interested in them and expressed an interest in carrying them (or at least getting some for themselves). I always felt guilty about using the plastic film produce bags at the super market, and find that this is a much better option. Thanks!
5.0 We have used these at our local coop and love the
Comments about Product:We have used these at our local coop and love the breathability of these bags. They make great snack bags when the kids are only taking a piece of fruit and the lunch box is not necessary. I have also tossed them into my Gecko Traders bags (LOVE THOSE!!) for holding the little things like my cell phone, keys, etc.--just wrap the drawsting through the handles! We gave many away as "wrapping paper" this year and they have been very well received.
5.0 These bags make a terrific accessory for your larg
Comments about Product:These bags make a terrific accessory for your larger reusable shopping bags. Perfect size for produce, and the mesh construction means that cashiers can see what's in the bag -- it's not as see-through as clear plastic film, but -- it's REUSABLE :) Parsley and carrots are the hardest thing to fit in, anything else is pretty straightforward. I found that a half-dozen are more than enough for the average shopping trip.
5.0 These net bags are my produce mainstays, because y
Comments about Product:These net bags are my produce mainstays, because you can see what's in them, they're stretchy and expandable, and they look custom-made for the purpose. They're fun to fill up, and I usually use about 6 per shopping trip. You will still need some cloth mesh bags, though, for dry goods in bulk that are messy or have small pieces, such as nuts or grains.
Comments about Product:Love the bags, thank you. Your bags are perfect for dry goods, fruit etc. How about a reuseable replace for wet food needs that are now plastic. Rain coat material of some sort? Ripstop nylon close weave that would hold water?
Comments about Product:I was so happy to find these bags!! I had been worrying for a while about all the plastic bags I'm using for produce... and I buy a lot of fruits and veggies. At Whole Foods they'll take off the tare weight, so I don't have to pay extra for the extra weight, which is a relief. I feel so good about using these, and I hope others will see and follow my lead. Every time I check out, 2 or 3 people ask where I got my bags and other products from this website. Only thing is, these bags work best for certain produce, like apples, onions, avocadoes... but are not large enough for bunches of greens (like kale) and foods like berries would be too small and messy in these. Still, these are well worth having!
Comments about Product:These cotton net produce sacks are great! They open and close easily with the drawstring. I like that the cashier can see what's inside the sacks without opening it. I'm very happy with my purchase.
Comments about Product:I love these little suckers! They're great for storage as well as shopping. I live in a smart, but rather "non-green," small town. Belive it or not for two years I was the ONLY shopper to use my own totes in the local stores. However, I was happy to endure stares and flustered baggers in hopes of planting the seed. It's working! So stand up, be brave and set an example. Flaunt those reusable bags!
Comments about Product:These sacks work great! I keep them in the car for those unexpected stops at the grocery store, and I always get positive feedback from the checkout people (and others) when I come through the line. I end up paying for an extra few grams due to the additional weight of the bag (versus plastic produce bags), but am happy to pay it and say no to plastic! I gave these and the ACME reusable mesh workhorse bags as stocking stuffers (gave them early, because there's no time like the present to stop using plastic bags), and they were happily received and put into immediate use! Great website- great products!
5.0 This is just what I was looking for in a reusable
Comments about Product:This is just what I was looking for in a reusable produce bag! I initially ordered four (two small two large), and have ordered two more since. I get nothing but positive comments from- and often find myself passing along the website adress to fellow shoppers and cashiers.
Comments about Product:I really like the produce bags. The cashier has no problem seeing through the bag for the price sticker. They hardly have any additional weight to worry about. So you're just really spending money on the food that you're buying. They are a great addition to the canvas groceries bags that I have been using for years.
Comments about Product:I love the cotton net produce sacks! It is so nice to just use these instead of grabbing yet another plastic bag for produce. The grocers love them and the fact that they can see into the bag to see the type of produce. Highly recommend them and I tell everyone about them!
Comments about Product:Loved them! Purchasing more for "stocking stuffers" for the family. Three things: 1) Size - I actually think the large are not large enough. Maybe call those a "Medium" and add one more size. 2) Confusion in the check out lines. Is there a way to imprint "produce bag" on the outside? (Organic ink or an organic cotton tag or??) 3) Weight - it does add a little. It would be nice to get some grocery stores to offer discounts for those that use their own bags. Whole Foods does it for your carry out bags.....I'm guessing they would be a great place to start to try out the discount for product bags as well. Thank you for keeping the world alive!
4.0 We're so happy to have a replacement for plastic p
Comments about Product:We're so happy to have a replacement for plastic produce bags! These are working pretty well, but there were a couple things we were surprised by: * The instructions say to wash the bags in cold water and to line-dry. We did. They still shrunk considerably. So if you're deciding between the small and large size, err on the large side. * They aren't as "see-through" as we expected. So the cashier at the grocery store sometimes has to ask us what the items inside are. It only happens maybe once every other time we go to the grocery store, so it's not a big problem. But overall, we're proud of our cloth produce bags. Sometimes the baggers at the grocery store ask us where we got them, and we tell them reusablebags.com!
4.0 I really like the resuable bags, and they're very
Comments about Product:I really like the resuable bags, and they're very handy. The only minor criticism I would have is that they shrink up a lot when you put them in the wash....so the large bags are pretty much the size of the small bags, and then the small bags are even smaller. However, the bags do stretch a lot when you put stuff in them, so it's not a super big deal.
Comments about Product:I love these items! I get a lot of responses, always positive, when I use them. The stickers and buttons get a lot of attention, too, when they read "Plastic Bags Blow" because they think something else, then when I tell them how I'm doing my part to save the environment, they realize how wonderful it is!
Comments about Product:My wife and I love these produce bags! We were worried that the cashier would find it difficult to decipher the produce, but every single person has asked where they can get their own! They even gave us a 5 cent credit for every reusable bag we used! It is a wonderful way to save the earth, money, and spread the word! We definately recommend!
5.0 The mesh produce bags are really helping me cut do
Comments about Product:The mesh produce bags are really helping me cut down on my use of plastic bags! So far they're performing perfectly, they seem to be very light and not add any weight to the scale at check-out. I've washed them and they're holding up! Great product!
5.0 Excellent product, and, as each one weighs about
Comments about Product:Excellent product, and, as each one weighs about .9 oz, there's little chance of throwing off a produce purchase price. For anything light, such as mixed greens, you can probably ask for a cost offset at the point of purchase if you care. If you buy these, be prepared to tell folks where they can buy them, because they will ask!
Comments about Product:Love the reusable produce bags! I've been using them both at the grocery store and at the farmer's market. They hold up really well, are attractive, convenient and weigh next to nothing. Buy a bunch and never use a plastic produce bag again!
Comments about Product:I am so glad to have these. I have been using canvas bags for a while now, but produce bags remained a problem. Even at the farmer's market they are always eager to hand you yet another plastic bag. Now I can have them weigh my produce in these and come home without a single plastic bag in my cart. Love it.
5.0 This is the second time we have placed an order fo
Comments about Product:This is the second time we have placed an order for these bags we where so happy for the first one. Now we have tons of them and find since they hold SO MUCH MORE then you would expect we do not even use close to how many we have. Everytime we go to the food store we get compliments from the baggers as to how much they hold...looks ARE deciving.
5.0 This is a great product and I was pleased to find
Comments about Product:This is a great product and I was pleased to find a replacement for plastic produce bags. I only wish the bags were more see-through as I find that during check-out it is hard for the cashier to see what's inside without opening them up.
Comments about Product:These are made well, and are pretty sturdy. Hold up well thru a wash, I did hang dry as recommended. I take them all the time to the farmers market for fresh veggies. I need to order more!! :)
Comments about Product:I really like my produce bags. I wished I had bought more, but I'll try to stick with the four I got. My vegetables are still fresh. And I use these bags to carry my lunch to work. They fit two of my medium size plastic containers. They are great!
4.0 I like the feel of the bags and their ease of use
Comments about Product:I like the feel of the bags and their ease of use. I appreciate being able to eliminate the plastic bags at the co-op and other natural food stores. I even take them to the farmers' markets! I have washed them twice following the instructions explicitly and they have shrunk about 40%. That has been the only disappointment.
Comments about Product:These are great bags. We take them to the farmers market and to the grocery store. The only thing I need to remember is to weigh an empty one and put it on a tag because some store clerks really want to know what the tear weight is. I wish that they were not so darn expensive, but it was worth it to me to know that I am doing right for the environment and for the health of my family (no yucky plastic touching our organic produce!!).
Comments about Product:I love my new produce bags. I purchased the large mesh drawstring produce bags and I have used them on all of my grocery trips. They really help to eliminate the use of the plastic produce bags I used to use. The best thing about these bags is that I know I am helping the earth.
5.0 These bags work wonderfully for getting produce at
Comments about Product:These bags work wonderfully for getting produce at the grocery store. They're stretchy, so you can get lots of vegetables and fruits to fit. But they're also durable and can be thrown into the washing machine. By using these and tote bags, I've completely stopped using plastic bags at the grocery store. It's great!
5.0 Have just gotten these bags, so no lengthy "road t
Comments about Product:Have just gotten these bags, so no lengthy "road testing" yet, but I love the idea. It's a relief not to have to keep using those ceaseless rolls of plastic bags at the store to contain my fresh produce.
4.0 I own an organic, local produce company and I supp
Comments about Product:I own an organic, local produce company and I supply fresh produce to restaurants and CSA customers. I, and the restaurants with which I deal are very, very happy with the organic cotton bags I found at reusablebags.com. One thing I would mention though. I find it deplorable that a company claiming to make an effort to change the waste stream, would send unrequested bumpersticker with an order. Bumper stickers are, perhaps, the most obvious example of wasted resources. Please don't keep producing or sending them. Thank you, however, for your attempts and ideas. Great bags. Parker Produce
5.0 Most people in my area are not used to seeing thes
Comments about Product:Most people in my area are not used to seeing these produce sacks, but they will sure start a conversation. I think they are very good. They hold up well, are washable, and I am not overrun with more plastic!
Comments about Product:These are excellent produce bags. I am finally to the point where I remember my ACME totes almost every time, and I was feeling guilty about using plastic produce bags. These are large--fits bunches of kales, several bunches of broccoli, any amount of fruit, etc. I have some of the non-mesh, which I think I will now use for bulk bin items. The mesh are the best for produce.
Comments about Product:These bags are great. I also have several string bgs, but these are perfect for small items like beans and small fruit. I am so happy to be able to avoid using plastic at the produce market and farmer's market.
5.0 I think I just reviewed the wrong item___these pro
Comments about Product:I think I just reviewed the wrong item___these produce sacks are wonderful. The baggers had to get used to them, but they think their cool now! Definitely get one of each size for different size produce.
Comments about Product:This is a great & very sturdy bag. It's especially helpful with heavier items. I usually carry my detergent, milk, or several food cans in it. I use the little pocket to carry my produce mesh bags too. And...This bag will last forever!!!
5.0 These are great - I was worried at first that the
Comments about Product:These are great - I was worried at first that the cashiers would have trouble determining the product inside but it hasn't been an issue at all. I've even been asked where I found them and directed new customers to the site!
5.0 I wish they were a little bit cheaper per bag cons
Comments about Product:I wish they were a little bit cheaper per bag considering that you definitely need to buy a good amount if you buy a lot of produce, but I use them all the time now. The larger ones are great for grapefruits, oranges, apples, and bananas while the small one are great for onions, plums, tangerines, tomatoes. I have four of each and just throw them in my reusable shopping bags in my cart and use them as I need them. Machine washable so easy to clean. The only problem is remembering to use them for my produce when near a plastic bag dispenser as I break my plastic bag habit. :-) Would definitely buy again.
5.0 I purchased the organic cotton net produce sacks t
Comments about Product:I purchased the organic cotton net produce sacks to hang in my basement stairwell for produce storage. They are awesome! All the items (onions, potatoes, shallots, garlic) have been keeping quite well - and the look? Fantastic! I'm seriously considering buying some more to take along on my shopping trips. In fact, I think I'll buy some now. Thank you for making such a wonderfully responsible (and, dare I say - chic) product.
Comments about Product:These bags work great! I love that they are made from organic cotton, the sizes are handy, and they are durable. The are a great alternative to plastic or to having handfulls of green beans milling around with the rest of your groceries!
5.0 I am so very happy with the reuseable produce bags
Comments about Product:I am so very happy with the reuseable produce bags I purchased! I drive my hydrid to the nearest local place selling locally grown organic produce, take my own bags, and fill 'em up! They hold a lot, even the small ones, and I'm very happy not to be taking home more plastic! I also keep some reuseable containers in the car for the times we eat at restaurants and have leftovers. I don't accept the restaurant's styrofoam - I've got my own containers! MUCH better in every way! It's a matter of .. thinking about what I'm doing... and making sure my supplies are in the car when I need 'em. Thank you for your great products! Lin
5.0 I love the EcoBags I received from your company
Comments about Product:I love the EcoBags I received from your company. I wish they could be thrown in the dryer without shrinking to nothing, but that's the nature of organic cotton. So, my overall review is that I'm absolutely thrilled with your product, and I will recommend your company to my family and friends.
Comments about Product:Love these bags. Great design. I use these ones (with the open material) to pack the produce for checkout at the store. Then I keep my "not washed" produce inside them in the fridge. I also purchased the other style of produce bags (the closely knitted material) for storing my washed produce in the fridge and for keeping my potatoes, onions, sweet potatoes and bulk beans in the pantry. I get so much use of both styles that I need to buy more of them, since I seem to keep all of them full when I need an empty one.
Comments about Product:I was disappointed in the produce sacks. They're too heavy for the veggies plus you can't readily see what's in them w/o opening the sack. Makes checkout awkward since the clerk can't see the label numbers through the bag. I was expecting something more transparent and lightweight like a shear nylon type of bag.
1.0 I was anxious to try out my produce bags as I feel
Comments about Product:I was anxious to try out my produce bags as I feel we all use way too many plastic bags in the produce dept. These Eco Bags, however, are not the answer - at least for me. The material is too 'thick' making it difficult for harried cashiers to see what's in the bag very well; it also cost me 7 cents more for my zucchini (we weighed zucchini in and out of the bag). Had I bought a more costly item, such as peaches for example, the additional cost of the bag would have been even higher.I just think there must be something else out there that is a lighter-weight mesh fabric. Something on the order of the net bags around avocados for example. To get a large number of people interested in using produce bags instead of plastic, you need to find bags that cost a heck of a lot less than $3.95 and that are light enough not to add more cost to food items. People will use any negative to deter them from making a change from easier shopping habits. Adding additional costs to food is never a good idea. Environmental changes aren't just for the rich, everyone needs to participate. Thanks for listening.
Comments about Product:It took me a while to start using the bags. Part of the problem was remembering to take them in the store with me, the other part was wondering what the reaction would be when i asked them to use my bags instead of the plastic. I was pleasantly surprised at the willingness to accommodate my request, plus they gave me a nickle credit for each bag I provided. I now take them in with me always, and am pleased with the capacity of the bags, plus ease of handling. I am totally sold on the concept. Now I need to get some refrigerator bags for my veggies. I used to throw all the plastic bags under my sink. It gives me great pleasure to get rid of the mess.

Comments about Product:I've used these bags for many years, and LOVE them. They wash up easily, stretch nicely, are sturdy, and even work well for storing the produce in the frig. The nice thing about these is you don't have to open the bag to see what's inside as you can see through the netting.

Comments about Product:The bags I got were the perfect size to replace plastic grocery bags for produce. It is also nice that the bags are net-like, allowing you to see what they contain and let the produce have ventilation.
5.0 The reuseable cotton net produce sacks work great!
Comments about Product:The reuseable cotton net produce sacks work great! By using them I am not being wasteful by accumulating the plastic bags from the grocery store. The sacks look handsome in the refrigerator and keep vegetables fresh and crisp. They are also a wonderful way to present homegrown vegetables to family and friends. I'm am very pleased with this purchase.
Comments about Product:I like the bags a lot. They are a great replacement for all the plastic bags I have accumulated. The only problem I have with them which is probably a result of me ordering the wrong bag is the straps are too long.
4.0 I like the produce bags that I purchased, but I've
Comments about Product:I like the produce bags that I purchased, but I've noticed that the grocery store cashiers are sometimes unable to see the product code stickers through the bags. It might be an improvement if there was some kind of plastic, see-through window on part of the bag, or a small spot where a produce sticker could be put on the outside of the bag.
Comments about Product:We love them! Perfect size, good looking, easy to carry and my husband likes them too! We have been using them for all of our shopping, not just groceries. I no longer have a cupboard stuffed with plastic bags...Thank you!

Comments about Product:These are handy since you can actually see what's in them. I've been meaning to weigh them to see how much they add--I wouldn't suggest using them for really light, expensive foods like garlic or morels...
Comments about Product:This is great! I need to get a few more. I used to keep my produce loose in the shopping cart in order to reduce my plastic bag use. This bag is a much better solution. Keeps my fruit and veggies in one place, so tomatoes and other softer items are less likely to get squished rolling around with other products. The drawstring is a nice feature.
3.0 I'm new at using cloth bags for my groceries, and
Comments about Product:I'm new at using cloth bags for my groceries, and I've just started using the cloth string grocery bags at my local Vons store. I love using my string bags, but I'm having trouble getting myself to use these cotton net produce sacks for my produce. The main reason is that I weighed one (the large size) at about 2.5 ounces on the grocery store's produce scales. Today I bought some apples at $1.99 a pound. I calculated that if I used my cloth bag assuming a weight of 2.5 ounces, it would add another 31 cents to the cost of the apples. In contrast, the plastic bag weighed nothing according the scale. Maybe I'm cheap, but I don't want to needlessly pay an extra 31 cents per bag for the priviledge of using cloth produce bags. I need to talk to the cashier to see if she can subtract the weight of the bag from the total weight, but they all seem so busy that I haven't done this yet. I have the same complaint with the large produce bags: they weigh about 2 ounces (the website says 0.09 lbs).
Comments about Product:I love the feel of not using any more plastic... It takes longer to check out (cashier ends up opening almost every bag), and some vegetables (broccoli) do catch on the bag a little. BUT no sea turtle will die accidentally eating my vegetable bags!!!

Comments about Product:These cotton produce bags are terrific -- they hold a lot and are very sturdy. I so prefer them to the icky plastic bags available in produce section and i just store them in my Gecko Wave bags so that they always make it to the store with me. Charlotte

Comments about Product:I purhcased the Gecko Traders Recycled Wave Tote and I love them! We have a family of 5 so each week I go to the grocery store at least twice and our order fits into between 3 and 5 of these bags -- they are so roomy and unbelievabley strong. I especially like the outside pockets which are large and tough enough to hold a bottle of wine. Also the material is water resistant so spills or rain just wipe off. I can not recommend these highly enough. I thought that they were a bit expensive but bought them anyway because they are from recycled material, but they are worth every penny! Charlotte
4.0 Good sturdy reuseable bags that replace the single
Comments about Product:Good sturdy reuseable bags that replace the single use plastic produce bags. I've had favorable comments from the cashiers at the grocery store. The only drawback to these bags is their lack of transparency. If the produce inside has to be counted, or the produce has an ID sticker on it, then the cashier has to open the bag to look in. Not a big deal and I recommend these bags.
