I bought a bunch up for myself and for gifts for others at Christmas from Fickle Faerie and Kootsac and have been really happy with how they've been working. I get a few surprised looks at the check-out but mostly people remark on how "cute" the bags look. Do take a look at the various sets and sizes these sellers have and I'm sure that once you try them out you'll shun plastic produce bags as well.

Re-useable Produce Bags
Like most people in January, I made some New Year's resolutions and one of them was to be more environmentally conscious and reduce the amount of waste our family produces. Over the years we've started composting, growing our own food, canning and pickling, and making sure to bring our own shopping bags wherever we go. However, whenever we would go to the produce store, we would end up with a fridge full of flimsy plastic bags that would just get used once and then end up in the garbage. While browsing on Etsy I came across some sellers that create re-useable produce bags and thought, "Genius!".
