|lightweight and reusable|
If you need a bag to use for produce that is lightweight, not plastic, not a one-time-use item, and you have no intention of making a bag, I have a bag for you.
The mesh bag is a laundry bag, meant for using for delicate laundry. I was searching for a bag for my grandson to use for washing his socks in a campus laundry. The bags from Walmart are very stiff and heavy and much more expensive than these from the Dollar Tree. I paid $1 for a package of three (3) laundry or lingerie bags. These measure 12 x 14 inches in my kitchen, but they may have a slightly different size listed on the packaging.
These are so lightweight that I would imagine the weight is negligible. However, you can have the grocer find the tare weight before you use it the first time. Then, you will know and can tell the checker the tare each time you go without having to reweigh the bag.
Beware the bottom of the grocery cart or the child seat. Both are full of E. coli! You might place this mesh bag on a paper or something. The reusable lingerie bags can be swished in a bit of dish washing liquid and easily dried.
I know. I know. It is from China. sigh
Do you let your produce free-range in the nasty grocery cart? Use a reusable bag? Or, just use a plastic produce bag available at the grocery?
