The biggest benefit of using cotton produce bags is that they can be reused multiple times, eliminating never-ending piles of single-used plastic grocery bags. Cotton produce bags will biodegrade when discarded and will not leach harmful chemicals to the environment. Cotton is also breathable, which extends the life of fruits and vegetables if you leave them bagged.
Planet B makes cotton produce bags in Landing, New Jersey. The products are made in small batches from either up-cycled, reusable or compostable components. The company is run by a husband and wife team whose goal is to make affordable and sustainable products accessible for everyone. That is an admirable goal to be sure!
