Reusable Produce bags – the best alternative to single-use plastic grocery bags

Single-use plastic bags are a huge contributor to plastic waste. Buying fruits and vegetables is not a one-time purchase, it’s something that we do every other day. We all feel guilty while reaching out to single-use thin plastic bags while buying produce from the supermarket. These bags are hardly reused as they get torn very easily. Sometimes for heavy items, we need to overlap 2 or 3 plastic bags so that they do not break while carrying the produce.

The use of disposables and plastic has surged during this pandemic. We need to be more conscious than before when it comes to single-use plastic usage.

Is it safe to use reusable produce bags during the pandemic? 

Over 115 experts from 18 countries signed a statement addressing the safety of reusables. According to the statement released by Green peace USA, reusables are safe to use if one follows the basic hygiene practices. After bringing the groceries at home, wash your produce bag using soap and water and the bag is ready for your next purchase. Click here to read the statement released by Green peace USA.

By carrying your own produce bags, you can be sure that the bag you are using for your product has not been touched by anyone before and is disinfected & safe.  This way, you are protecting yourself in addition to saving the environment.

Making the decision of not using single-use plastic bags seems to be small but this small change has a greater significance for the environment. OLA Bamboo provides a smart solution to reduce dependence on single-use plastic bags – “Reusable Produce Bags”.
