Planet-Wise-Wise for Planet

Somethings are just worth repeating. Planet Wise bags are one of them!

It’s been one year since I purchased my first Planet Wise gallon zipper bag to store produce in the frig.  I now own 11 of them!  I use them to store spinach, lettuce, swiss chard, kale, red cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, herbs (such as basil and parsley), carrots, celery, etc.  Amazing product!

The first key to success in reducing our use of plastics is to stop bagging your produce with plastic bags.  (I know…the cashier will handle them but someone already handled them when stocking the shelves, so I figure you have to wash your produce anyway.)  For those items in which a bag is handy (e.g., fresh green beans), resolve to carry reusable bags with you to the store.  My next quest — buy a set of Flip & Tumble bags (stay tuned…future post!).

One more step on our eco-friendly journey!  Save money, reduce our use of plastic products, and feel oh-so-good about it!
