The drawstring cotton canvas bags are a staple in any zero waste home. They'll help you buy and carry home various products without the use of any plastic.
Choose the size according to what produce you're buying in bulk!
The XS and S sizes are ideal for smaller quantities of dried fruit, nuts and seeds, while the larger ones are excellent for vegetable, fruit, pasta and legumes.
If you want to avoid any contamination, you can put labels or decorate the bags, to help deciding which to use for what.
Many worry what the cashiers will say if you use your own produce bags instead of the plastic bags found in supermarket aisles. We say from our experience, that the feedback is mostly positive or neutral. Try it in every shop you go to, as this will spread knowledge about phenomenon, and more and more shops will know about this new need of eco-conscious customers. If any question is raised, go with a simple answer of why you find this important! It may very well result in winning a new person or an entire company to the zero waste movement! Let's spread the plastic free revolution! ;)

Cotton canvas is an unprocessed, natural material, that can shrink when you first wash it. It shrinks approximately 10% which depends on the temperature of the water. We recommend you to only wash it in 30-40 °C water, so the fabric won't shrink any further.
