Cotton produce bags designed to hold loose fruit and vegetables from the market and supermarket, made in the UK in thick organic cotton with a jute drawstring closure.
A set of five organic cotton produce bags with drawstring closure, designed to replace the thin disposable plastic bags dispensed at supermarkets and markets for loose food stuffs. You can fill them with fresh fruit and veggies, rolls and pastries...anything purchased 'loose' can safely stored in these produce bags. The drawstring top prevents anything from falling out. These produce bags can also be used in the freezer for things such as bread and rolls.
The produce bags are made of 100% natural undyed calico cotton with a light olive green drawstring. They are made for us in the UK by Teal and her husband, who sew the bags with care by hand. Please note, some bags are plain without the DoYourBit label.
Cool machine wash and air dry is best. Please expect some shrinkage as this is a natural material.
Size: 34cm x 28cm. Please note you will receive five bags all the same size, the smaller of two bags shown in image 2.
In the US, using your own produce bags is already a trend, and the bags are readily available to buy. It was surprisingly tough to find anything like this in the UK, and so I was thrilled to discover 'Do Your Bit' (thank you Instagram), a small company based in Northern Ireland, founded by Teal McCarthy. Another fantastic innovation to help us to do our bit for the environment.
'Superb craftsmanship, looking forward to using them & doing my bit!????'
End of Life The bags will last for many years to come. As they are made from unbleached cotton, they are 100% biodegradable at end of life. Even better, you can place them into fabric recycling or cut into strips and use as kindling.
(A note on unbleached cotton - the pristine white colour often associated with fabric is very unnatural, and is often a result of bleaching and several other chemical processes. Hence our drawstring bags and bowl covers are an off-white/ cream colour).
