What makes our Reusable Bulk Food Bag Set so good?
We love bulk food shopping as it is a great way to reduce waste in your life, but sometimes either remembering to or carrying lots of jars and containers can be really inconvenient.
Our beautiful vintage style reusable bulk food bag set has been designed to provide a convenient alternative for taking jars and containers to your local bulk food store.
The bulk food bags are also super handy to use when you would like to top up half filled containers at home. This means you no longer need to stock up on extra jars and containers on top of your current ones to use as “top up” containers, as our bulk food bags give you a light and compact way to top up as you need.
We love diverting existing waste from landfill which is why our bulk food bags are made from BPA free, food safe recycled plastic drink bottles.
Our bulk food bag set contains a large, medium and small bulk food bag along with our specially designed bulk food shopping tote. They are all conveniently stored in our innovative bulk food carry case which comes with an attached carabiner that can be clipped on to your bag and belt so you always have your bags On Ya.
Our Shopping tote boasts a double lined base and extra wide square gusset making it perfect for transporting bulk foods in both bags and jars.
Each of our bulk food bags feature the tare weight of the bag in both grams and ounces and they also have a clear window made of non-toxic, BPA & chlorine free PEVA. This window allows you to not only easily see what is inside your bag, but you can also write in that window the product, as well as any unique codes you may need when checking out. We recommend a coloured wax pencil or whiteboard marker only as permanent marker can be very difficult to remove. The window especially helpful when distinguishing products such as Self Raising and Plain Flour that otherwise look identical.
The volumes of the bulk food bags vary dependent on what you are putting in them. For example a small bag of flour is going to weigh more than a small bag of corn chips, but to give a rough idea we have modelled the look of our Bulk Food Bags on the classic 1kg/2lb and 2kg/4lb flour bags with the large being able to carry as much as 5kg/11lb.

Please note: The goal for our reusable bulk bags is to be able help people easily and conveniently transport their bulk food purchases home. The bags have been designed as a lightweight top up tool to replace the need for carrying jars and canisters when doing your shopping, and when you bring them home you should empty the contents into your storage jars and containers.
Although made from recycled plastic drink bottles and technically plastic, the rPET material that makes our bags is woven in nature not solid state plastic like a single use plastic bag which is non-permeable for air and water.
Because of the woven nature of the fabric, a solid state plastic bag will definitely prevent air from reaching the bulk food products better than our bulk bags will when storing your bulk food products. Things like pasta hold well in them, but things that rely on freshness are better stored in an airtight container.
Our bulk bags are definitely at their best when used to carry home your bulk food dry goods and transfer the contents into your bulk food storage jars and containers to ensure freshness.
A note on our packaging: Our commitment to sustainability extends to our packaging which is made from post-consumer recycled material and printed with water based inks so it is suitable for both recycling and composting. We ship low waste and plastic free, reusing boxes and packing materials where we can or FSC certified shipping envelopes that are 100% recyclable.
Onya is proud to be a B Corporation. Our products are responsibly made in China and are 100% recyclable at the end of their long life cycle.
Where Can I Find The Best Reusable Bulk Food Bags For The Environment?
The fact that you’re looking for alternatives to make your bulk food shopping easier means you’re a friend of the environment, and a friend of the environment is a friend of ours. If you’re tired of plastic bags, and bulky containers then you’ve come to the right place. Want to make a healthier choice for the planet? Our range of BPA-Free recycled plastic products are the bulk food container alternative you have been asking for.
At Onya we’ have a very simple goal. We want to divert as much plastic waste as possible from ending up in our landfills and waterways. It’s all about taking items that would otherwise languish for decades causing environmental concerns and turning them into useful, environmentally sound, lifestyle products that actually work. Our fully food-safe sustainable bulk food bags are made from rPET material which is a fabric made from recycled plastic drink bottles.
What is Plastic Free Shopping?
You might be trying to avoid plastic in every other part of your life, but at the supermarket, that sneaky stuff is literally everywhere. Australians buy a whopping 118,000 tonnes of plastic bottles every year. If that’s just bottles, can you imagine what that number would be once we include bags, containers and other packaging? Unfortunately, too many are still asking, ‘what’s the problem with plastic?’. To put it simply, plastics are made from natural resources like crude oil, gas and coal which are non-renewable and never break down. Unlike organic matter, plastic won’t actually break up and be reabsorbed; it just gets smaller. It is thought that hundreds of thousands of sea life, including dolphins, whales and fish, die every year because of this hazardous substance washing up in our oceans. Even more disturbing for our health, each of us are ingesting more of these microscopic plastic pieces every year.
Part of the solution is plastic free shopping. Excitingly, there is a global movement growing every day that is encouraging us to vote with our dollars and support businesses that allow us to shop single use plastic free. Bulk food shopping is a sustainable answer for many Australians as it allows us to shop guilt free. Unfortunately, shopping for bulk food means having to carry heavy jars and containers to fill up at your local store. That got us thinking about a creative solution with our reusable bulk food bags. Made from recycled plastic, our bags have been designed to be light, compact and sturdy enough for every conceivable content! The set consists of a carry case, tote and three different sized bags – the perfect starter pack for any new eco warrior! The three bag sizes are also available individually so you can customize for your individual needs.

Makes using my local refill shop so easy and less bulky. Really easy to pour from too. The bags hold so much more than I was expecting!
Monica C –
Great gifts to save the planet
I purchased three bulk food starter sets for me and gifts for my two daughters. I was so excited to receive them, since they had to travel all the way to the US! They are very well-made and should last for a very longtime. Thumbs up to Onya for doing their part in saving our planet!

Handy space savers
If you find bring lager solid containers to the bulk store a bit of a pain, these are a great solution. Much easier to pack and fit into your bag on the way home.
Kim W –
Handy & practical
Keep the bulk food handling set with my shopping bags, very practical, easy for cashiers to see what’s in the bag & no spillage
Lyn P –
Easy to order. Arrived quite quickly considering Covid. Like the products so far.
Maria L –
Great quality, fast shipping and the webpage has all the info you need!
I bought the starter pack + 2 extra bulk bags. I love the idea but I think the case could be bigger. If I place the tote + my new extra bags it closes but i don’t think I can fit any more bags in. I’d love to carry my bread bag in the case but it doesn’t fit.
Having said that, it looks really good quality and I love having my bulk kit all together.
Just went to my local bulk foods store and shopped with my new bags – absolutely love them already!
Alex C –
Not sure what I’d do without these! A small refill shop recently opened up here, with another opening soon, so they have been so helpful. I’ve used them many times – easy to use and clean, light and compact, and the window lets me know what’s in there. Having the tare weight printed on the bag is useful for the cashier too. Highly recommend!
Louise O –
Great products, excellent quality, highly recommend.
Robyn B –
Absolutely brilliant product, though I would make 1 small change, the small clip attachment holds the pouch upside down and all the bags slip out, I didn’t realise this at first and sadly have lost 1 because of this, if the clip was on top or had some way to seal the bags inside it would be better
Onya HQ –
Duly noted on the carry case clip placement and that will be updated on our next production batch. The bags sliding out only seem to be a problem if the tote bag is not put back inside the bag as without the tote, there is a lot more space inside the pouch so the bags have the potential to slide out. Thanks much for your feedback and support, we appreciate both as well as your efforts to reduce plastic waste.
Kelly H –
I really enjoy your products. My favorite part is the tare weight is written on the bag itself. So i don’t have to have them weighted in before I start shopping. these are the best bulk bags I have ever used. Thanks for all you do!
April S –
I absolutely loved these bags so much when I opened up the first package that I had to order a few more. These bags will ultimately prevent me from bringing home more little brown bags with plastic lining and metal wires that usually hold my bulk goods from wholefoods. So far, using them has been a charm, even just when going to get a refill on my favorite coffee beans or just picking up some rice, barley, or oats. I do have to use an erasable marker on the plastic window of the bag so that the cashier can properly key in the right SKU number of the product. As soon as that’s done, it comes clean off with a finger or some tissue. I’ve definitely made recommendations to my friends, they too are on a mission to reduce single-use plastics and other materials in their lives.

Love my purchases from Onya. The bulk food bags are the best. Would love to see these in retailers in Canada. Thanks for such an amazing product.
Dane B –
Great product and great initiative. Bags were dispatched and arrived on time and were of the highest quality.
I love these bags! The bread bag keeps my bread fresh but also allows it to breath a little so no moisture build up like with plastic bags! The bulk food bags are amazing and make life so easy!
Carolyn D –
The product was excellent and my daughter was very excited to receive her bags for her birthday. She already has the bread bag and loves it.
Vanessa M –
Love the new bulk food bags. I tend to buy too much when I go to the bulk store, but the different size bags will help me gauge the amount I buy. They’re easy to keep clean too. Keep up the good work Onya.
Jo S –
Love the bags and glad I ordered a couple of sets. Took me a little while to find the tote inside the carry case.
I have learnt to put the sticker on the bottom of the bag as it left a residue when I put it on the clear window.
Claudine B –
It was amazing. Your product are high quality.
