The famous question “plastic or paper?” is almost null and void as many of us choose to bring our own shopping bags to the grocery store. But as conscientious as we are about toting our own sacks, it’s hard to avoid taking home the thin, slippery bags to hold our produce. Luckily we have a decidedly stylish and eco-friendly alternative to hold our apples.
Say hello to Bite, a company founded by Christine Fiske last year as a solution to end bag waste. The drawstring bag with a punch of color and see-through mesh (to see what’s inside) are a great way to carry your healthy foods. Bite bags are stylish and functional as well as versatile: they are perfect for toting your produce, carrying your lunch, organizing your home and washing your delicates in the washing machine.
The bags can be purchased individually or in packages of three and are 10” by 13” in size. They retail for $5.00 a piece or $14.50 for a pack of three. The bags are machine washable and you may choose from several colors and styles. Look for other sizes and styles in the near future.
For those of you interested in using Bite bags for your produce shopping, and concerned that the bag may add extra weight on the scale, the bags weigh 0.03 tare. Tell your cashier and they can subtract that from the total weight.
