For many of us, summer is the best time to hit up the local farmers' market. Avoid plastic bags and unnecessary waste by making your own produce bags using kitchen towels!
These clever bags are easy to make, require only a few supplies and have a drawstring closure to keep veggies safe. Even better, this is a great way to give a second life to old dishtowels, flour sacks or other breathable fabrics.

Tip: These bags aren't just for the farmers' market - many grocery stores also allow reusable bags for produce and bulk items.
