3bbags Reusable Produce Bags

Product Review: 3bbags

I recorded another video blog, so please watch.
If you prefer to read, I’ve included text and pictures below 🙂

 

I don’t know about you, but I have jumped on the bandwagon of using reusable totes at the grocery store.  You buy them for about a $1.00 and bring them back when you do your shopping to cut down on the use of plastic bags.  These reusable totes are everywhere!  Grocery stores, pharmacies, large chain stores, even clothing stores.  They are a great way to reduce waste and save plastic.  So needless to say, I was so happy when I came across this new product!

I am so excited to introduce to you  3bbags Reusable Produce Bags

These bags are so cool and so smart!  They are made by a company called 3bbags based out of Colorado.  The product is exactly what they are called; Reusable Produce Bags.  They are made of out polyester, come in a pack of three, have a draw string to close, and are completely washable and reusable.  They take the place of those plastic bags that come on a roll in the grocery store for your fruits and veggies.  Worldwide we use a shockingly large number of plastic bags.

 “The consumption rate of our plastic bag addiction is estimated at well over 500,000,000,000
plastic bags annually, or almost 1 million per minute.”

Using these bags, or a similar product will drastically cut down on our plastic bag consumption.  I ordered a pack of three bags (two standard size and one oversized bag) from their website for $7.50.  Shipping to my door was around $1 and they arrived within 3 days.  The bags are washable either by hand or in the washing machine and air dry in no time at all.  I encourage you to go to their website and check out the product, it’s just another small thing we can do to make a difference.
