Reusable Produce Bags

Who else struggles with those thin plastic produce bags? They are a pain to open. I have never been one to lick my fingers to open a plastic bag or even flip through papers. This is something I think is nasty so I do not usually do it. I just keep rubbing the bag between my fingers until it breaks loose. A lot of people do find it easier to open the bags by licking their fingers. With the mask mandate, this has become a struggle for many.
Advice: Just rub your fingers on a wet fruit or veggie instead.

Or you can just order a set of these cute little Lotus produce bags which are washable and reusable. These bags are made of 100% organic cotton. They are cute sitting on your counter and keeps your fruits and veggies fresh. 

Just put a few in your purse and your ready to hit the market.
I really have enjoyed mine and think they are absolutely adorable filled with fresh fruit or veggies. 

Do you reuse or recycle? I am not in a big habit of doing either. I probably waste more than I need too. I am not a huge advocate of keeping America Green but I like the way some of the reusable items look. I do not look at is as less waste but as saving money when I can just wash things and reuse them again. I have seen reusable sandwich bags. I am not real sure about those yet. I’m thinking they would be hard to wash out. 
If you own any of the reusable sandwich bags, I would love to know your thoughts.

You can purchase these organic, reusable, cotton produce bags from Lotus products 


  1. I'm laughing because I am one who wets his fingers to open that aggravating little bag. most of the time NOW, I rub and rub until I might pull my mask back and wet my fingers, LOL. BUT the idea of touching wet fruit had never occurred to me, imma try that. THANKS.
    I keep a stock of plastic grocery bags to wrap a wet paint brush in if I plan to reuse it that day, it stays wet and pliable and ready to continue use later.
    I do not recycle enough officially (recycle bins etc) but I sure do 'repurpose' (term I cannot get used to! LOL) many, many things.
    Good entry, enjoy the visit to your house.
    WE are getting a few good days down here, but on the average we are usually about 10 degrees warmer than Gtown. We wonder sometimes is it worth the effort, BUT THEN SHERRY READS OF A BAD FREEZE THERE, and says "I am glad we are here!"
    Sending ((HUgs)) to you and Brother Nick.

  2. Great idea! I'll have to check those out.
