Lotus Produce Bags - Review and Giveaway

In October of last year I did a review for the Lotus Trolley Bag, an environmentally friendly shopping bag system.  Now I have the pleasure of telling you about Lotus Produce Bags, created by the same company.  These bags help eliminate millions of wasteful, harmful plastic bags from our environment.  

Lotus Produce Bags are sold as a set of 9 bags.  Consumers receive three of each size.  There's small (12"x8"), medium (12"x14") and large (12"x17").  Their main purpose, if you will, is to store produce.  Rather than putting your produce in one of those thin plastic bags the store provides, you can take one of the Lotus Produce Bags and put your fruits and veggies in there.  Once you get home, you can wash the produce while they're still in the bags, then place in the fridge until ready to use.


  Lotus Produce Bags are made of nylon mesh and can be washed repeatedly.  The bags are double-stitched on the sides, and each one includes a drawstring that comes with a white lock to keep contents secure.  Although they are made of white mesh, you can still see through enough to get a glimpse of what is inside each bag.  

Each size bag also has its own tare weight tag.  Not knowing what exactly that meant, I did an online search.  What it means with these bags is that the tag on the bags shows the weight of them as they are empty.  By subtracting it from the gross weight of the goods carried, the net weight may be determined.  



I love using the Lotus Produce Bags for the original purpose, to store produce.  I've also used them for many other purposes.  The bags can be used for almost any reason you'd use a plastic single-use baggie.  For instance, you can use the smaller Lotus Produce Bag to store peanuts or candies.  The bags can be used for medicines and cosmetics.  They're perfect to take when traveling.  You can stuff wet socks, swimsuits, or other clothing in there to keep separate from dry clothes.  

Lotus Produce Bags are durable, made well, and are useful for so many purposes.
