I have been doing well cutting down my carbon footprint in the shopping bag sector. I "remember" to bring my reusable totes and bags by leaving them on the passengers side floor of my car and after a grocery trip, I unload the food, then take them back to the car. So now I'm ready for the next reduce plastic and reusable bag stage - produce bags. I think there are some options out there, but I found an easy DIY way to do it.
What I came up with is lightweight, Easy to sew, fairly sturdy and VERY inexpensive.
Step 1: Cut a piece of tulle into several rectangles, measurements aren't important, but you want a decent size to fit a few oranges for example.
Step 2: The casing for the ribbon or sting to tie the bag closed. On a long side, fold over a 1/2' -1' of fabric and sew down, using a zig zag stitch (I set my stitch width to 2.5).
