Like I shared with you guys the other day, Bellingham now has a plastic bag ban which at heart is a good thing. Unfortunately it has not been carried correctly. Yes, plastic bags are practically extinct but they have forgotten about the produce bags…yup. Those transparent bags for your apples, bell peppers, and whatnot are still there and used in full force. And it makes me wonder: why? Aren’t those supposed to be part of the plastic bag ban? Or are they made out of magic?
I would have never thought about getting myself some reusable produce bags since they are not so popular…or maybe I simply live under a rock. Could it be due to both reasons? But, after I found out about Flip & Tumble I recalled seeing these reusable produce bags before.
Flip & Tumble sent me a set of their produce bags to review and I have fallen in love with them. They are now safely stored inside my reusable grocery bag in the trunk of my car…now all I need to do is remember that they are there and that I am supposed to bring them into the store with me…and not after the trip to the store as I fumble my groceries into my trunk. I am so not happy with having to pay 5 cents per paper bag (which in my opinion should be and will be banned soon) that I often walk out the store with all my groceries in the cart. Kind of unpractical….but still cheaper.
The Flip & Tumble set includes 5 reusable produce bags each tagged with a different color. This is beyond awesome (remember I have a color coded case of OCD?). The bags are made of polyester and are machine washable (yeah!!). Due to the mesh-like fabric, these bags are breathable which, in my opinion, gives Flip & Tumbles extra brownie points!
What’s best is that these reusable produce bags are large enough to fit all the vegetables and fruits you might need.
Now I am feeling ready for when the city of Bellingham realizes that produce bags are also made out of plastic and decide to ban them as well. Maybe they never remove
