Reusable Vegetable Bags
When you are shopping for veggies in the supermarket you are pretty much limited to single-use plastic bags as your option to carry your veggies home in. It’s either those or no bag at all.
If you’ve never thought about the needless plastic waste this creates, the idea of reusable vegetable bags is likely a plastic waste solution you have yet considered. Onya wants to make a difference in needless plastic waste with our reusable veggie bags, an environmentally responsible choice with several advantages over single-use plastic produce bags.
Say goodbye to wasted produce
When buying vegetables, it’s always a good idea to know how you’re going to use them before you buy them. When you plan out your veggie consumption by taking into consideration the way your food is purchased, stored, prepared and served will help your veggies be at their best with less food waste being created in your home.
One of the major problems with ordinary plastic bags is they don’t breathe. Some types of vegetables have a problem with drying out too quickly, but most vegetables do need healthy air circulation to keep them crisp and fresh. Keep vegetables too long without air and they’ll start to sweat a slimy fluid.
Onya makes mesh bags for vegetables, so the veggies will be exposed to air and not prematurely spoil. You’ll notice the difference right away compared to regular plastic bags. Reusable fruit and vegetable bags helps keep produce in a more natural state and allows them to stay fresher longer.
The easiest way to buy and store veggies
The convenience of our reusable mesh vegetable bags can’t be beaten. The bags are stored in a convenient pouch making it easy to have On Ya. You can place fresh produce in the bags while you shop, in place of the supermarket supplied single-use plastic bags, and they can be weighed at checkout as you normally would with disposable plastic bags.
When you get home you can remove your veggies or keep them in the bags which are ready to hang up, store in your pantry, or place in the refrigerator. When you’re ready to use the contents, simply open the bags, take out your veggies, and the bags will be ready to use again for your next shopping trip.
Helping the environment
Pollution from plastic waste is one of the most serious environmental threats we face today. The manufacturing of our recycled produce bags cuts from an already existing material rather than straight from scratch saves on energy and resources, natural and otherwise.
Plastic pollution is harmful to our oceans and wildlife, reduces arable land availability, and is a particularly unsightly mess. Whatever can be done to increase recycling efforts and eliminate waste will be a positive step in the health of our planet.
All Onya reusable bags are made from recycled plastic drink bottles. When you buy our reusable vegetable bags online, you make a real difference by cutting your plastic use and helping keep plastic waste out of our landfills and waterways.
