I try to be environmentally sound when possible. I walk most places that I can rather than take the car, I hop on the train with the twins when we want to go downtown or to the zoo, and I try to use resuable shoppers whenever possible.
My favorite shopping bags have easily been Chicobags! They are totally sturdy, big and roomy, and come in fun colors and styles! Chicobag uses recycled materials and has designed RePETe bags made from recycled bottles. With the local Farmer’s Market opening up in weeks I wanted to get something to use with the various fruits and veggies I will be picking up there. The Produce Starter Kit comes with 3 bags – a mesh, a RePETe nylon, and a cotton hemp.
The Hemp/Cotton bag is great for things like green beans, nuts, and grains, as well as bulk foods like flour. The RePETe bag is great for leafy greens and broccoli because it locks in moisture, and the mesh is good for things like citrus, apples, and potatoes. And a bonus – if you forget whic bag is good for what items, each has a tag to remind you!
The 3 bags come in a handy carrier with a caribiner attached so you can easily hook it to anything (such as, in my case, a stroller), so you will never forget it when you are going shopping!
I got so excited when I received this bag. It’s HUGE – a great bag for any shopping or travel excursion! I love using this bag for shopping – I can fit most of my groceries in it pretty easily. And it’s so pretty 🙂 AND is folds up to be nice and compact!
Since I usually don’t go anywhere without the twins I put my bags in the back pocket of their stroller so I always have them.
Chicobag is sold online and at several retail locations!
