Why Choose Organic Cotton Produce bags?
Every year more and more people are discovering how harmful plastic is to the environment and go to find environmentally friendly alternatives. We believe it shouldn't be the consumers responsibility to research every single product they buy, to discover if they really are as eco-friendly as they say they are. Eco-friendly means to do NO harm to the environment, products made from Nylon are simply not eco-friendly. Nylon is a synthetic man-made fibre derived from petrochemicals... a type of plastic. Nylon materials will exist indefinitely. It's true, conventional cotton isn't as natural as you would think either with the use of genetically modified seeds and the crops being treated with pesticides. Organic cotton is completely natural, chemical free and biodegradable.
Our Organic Cotton Produce bags are not just a step in the right direction, they are the final step. Packaged in a brown paper envelope (recyclable).
Each set of Collingwood Ecoware Produce bags includes 6 bags, 1 Small (8 x 10 inches), 2 Medium (10x12 inches), 2 Large (12x14 inches) & 1 Extra Large (14x18 inches). Even our smallest bag fits a bunch of six bananas and the biggest up to 30 medium sized onions!
Cleaning Instructions - To keep the bags exactly as they are in size, we recommend washing the bags with cold water and hanging to dry. The bags can be machine washed but expect some slight shrinkage. After washes the bags will look wrinkly, these wrinkles will fall out as the bags dry and stiffen.
Collingwood Ecoware is a small family-run business passionate about providing consumers with quality alternatives to single-use plastics. We offer guidance and support to all who are interested in living a more sustainable lifestyle. Every time you buy from us we do a happy dance that others care about the planet :)
CHOOSE NATURAL MATERIALS OVER SYNTHETIC - MADE FROM CERTIFIED ORGANIC COTTON. Make the switch today for the sake of our planet. There are many 'eco-friendly' options on the market but too often these are made from synthetic materials such as Nylon & Polyester. These materials will exist indefinitely. Our Organic Cotton Muslin Bags are made to last but when they've finally served their uses, you'll be glad to know they are biodegradable.
PICK BIGGER & BETTER. Each set of Collingwood Ecoware Produce bags includes 6 bags, 1 Small (8 x 10 inches), 2 Medium (10x12 inches), 2 Large (12x14 inches) & 1 Extra Large (14x18 inches). Even our smallest bag fits a bunch of six bananas and the biggest up to 30 medium sized onions! There's no need to feel guilty on your next grocery shop, fill your produce bags with all the fresh fruit and veg you desire and feel great that you won't be using any plastic in the process.
KEEP YOUR VEGETABLES FRESHER FOR LONGER WITH YOUR NEW BREATHABLE & ECO FRIENDLY PRODUCE BAGS. Once you've returned from your shop, rinse all veg with water before placing back in the reusable bags and placing in the refrigerator. We find this keeps veg fresher and crisper for longer so nothing goes to waste. EASY TO CLEAN, simply wash the bags out with cold soapy water and leave them out to dry, ready for next time.
JOIN THE ZERO WASTE MOVEMENT. Did you know plastic bags have only existed for about 50 years and yet it is estimated that 99% of all plastic ever produced still exists today? Scientists predict it will take around 1000 years for plastic to deteriorate but it could take even longer. It's time to stop fuelling this harmful industry for quick and cheap options and take things back to basics. Our grocery bags are a great first step in living a more sustainable lifestyle.
CHOOSE THE BEST FOR YOUR FAMILY. We all want the best for our families and sometimes it seems like hard work to find good quality, safe options for our homes. At Collingwood Ecoware we want only the best for you and our planet, that's why our veggie bags are packaged in brown paper envelopes/NO PLASTIC. Make the switch today. There's nothing to lose.. except the billions of plastic bags we use each year.
