So, how to transport your bounty home?  You need Reusable Produce Bags made from 100% organic cotton by our friends at A Greener Kitchen!  Lacey sent me these bags to try out.

Here’s Lacey’s story:

From shelling garden peas with mom to watching grandma bake bread, I’ve always been surrounded by simple, wholesome food. Watching my mom grow her own business, I also grew up with an entrepreneurial spirit. The two loves came together with the launch of A Greener Kitchen in 2009. Already a proponent of local, organic food, I wanted to help cooks green their kitchen routine in ways beyond just what they put on their plates.

I partnered with my mom’s sewing manufacturing company, the business I grew up with, to produce a line of organic cotton kitchen textiles. We use fair-trade certified organic cotton designed by one of the USA’s few eco-friendly textile artisans to create eco-chic products for retail stores, home kitchens, bakeries, restaurants, and more.

A Greener Kitchen is proud to be a Green America Approved Business.

I love the packaging – one of the small organic cotton bags is the wrapping!

Inside are SIX – count ‘em! – six produce bags in three different sizes.  She’s got several prints available, too!  I LOVE the black and white she sent.

    I feel guilty every time I grab one of the plastic produce bags at the store. I would LOVE to win these to rid myself of the guilt and prevent landfill waste!

  3. Plastic produce bags are the worst. This is one of the last disposable plastic things I need to replace.

    I love that these are reusable and I want to do something without chemicals to keep my products and help do my part to do the 3 Rs

    I would love to win the produce bags. I keep telling myself I could make them, but never do. Often, we buy produce at a local farmers market. I bring a fabric bag, but sometimes you’d like individual bags, so the strawberries don’t taste like onions.

    As long as I remember to keep these reusable bags in my car I am OK, but sometimes the best laid plans go astray! :(
