I don’t know about you, but the amount of plastic waste involved in making meals drives me nuts.
It seems like no matter how hard we try to reduce our use of single use plastics—and plastics in general—our garbage fills up with plastics at meal times.
I don’t remember grocery shopping and meal prep being so wasteful in the past, but it sure is now. Plus, the bags used by food producers seem to have become industrial strength. Each meal seems to half fill our garbage with plastic.
We recently started using cloth produce bags to shop for things like carrots, parsnips, broccoli, etc. These sustainable products are not expensive and to be honest, easy to use without a huge hassle. We keep them with our cloth grocery bags so every time we grab groceries, they’re with us.
I can't remember where we bought ours, but here are a few suggestions for you if you decide to try making the switch.
Ecobags from a local shop called Mrs. Greenway. These look good because cashiers can see through them to know what you’re buying.
Here's a set of 5 eco friendly bags from Flip & Tumble that have great reviews.
