This is the second review for my “Back To Natural” Event!! Maybe I will get a little button made up or something.. Hmmm… :O)
Ever go to the grocery store and spend double on organic yummy goodness just to stuff it in a plastic chemical laden sack to get it home? I do… every month… and it drives me crazy! So I was jazzed to get the chance to review these reusable produce bags from Qwerty-O. And I LOVE them! They hold a variety of items, including fruits and veggies, and even easily damaged produce such as cilantro without bruising it! Check these out…
These great little bags are made by a mother daughter team, Susan and Kristin, and are helping to get Kristin through her final year of high school and Cosmotology School!
Ok Ok.. I will admit that when I went grocery shopping for the first week of this month, I forgot to bring these with me.. OOPS.. so when I got home I filled them with produce and made the kids play with them and carry them around to see how well they stood up.. (I am one of those people who spend money on reusable shopping bags, then NEVER remember to bring them to the store.. never.. not once.. these bags now return directly to the van after I empty them out and wash them!) This is how they look full..
I love the smaller super soft bags that are perfect for things like cilantro, and parsley, or green onions!! The larger colored bags (not yet for sale, still in the testing stage!) are perfect for holding 5 lbs of onions, or apples, and the mesh bags held 5 lbs of oranges with no problem! After using them, one of the smaller, softer bags had a slimy green residue (guess that cilantro wasn’t as fresh as it looked in the store! The underneath was all yucky… I need to pay more attention while shopping) but a quick wash in the sink with a tad of eco-friendly dish soap, and I laid it on the counter to dry which only took a few minutes, then they all made a trip to the van so they don’t get forgotten next week!
I have to mention too, that this company has my award for recycling!! Not only do they make these reusable produce bags that keep a ton of garbage out of our landfills… I received my bags from them in a recycled Nutri-Grain Bar box!! I was very impressed with their recycling skills. I can’t tell you how often I receive packages from companies that say all this stuff about being green and recycling, then the package is 8 times the size of the product and it’s filled with packing peanuts or air filled plastic bags!!
Qwerty-O is giving away a set of their reusable bags to a blessed reader!! This is the set they are giving away…
