Replace Food Plastic with Eco-Friendly & Sustainable Options

Replace Food Plastic with Eco-Friendly & Sustainable Options

Now that many of us are focusing on cruelty-free, sustainability, eco-friendly, vegan, fair trade, transparent, clean, etc. products, IT’S A BIT OVERWHELMING. I mean the list goes on! It’s easy to forget to look for some of these things when you are shopping.

I have been eating vegan since late 2017 and I have accidentally eaten non-vegan foods many times. I’m human. So when you are shopping don’t feel like you HAVE to get it all right. Just do your best.

As companies are changing for the better and new brands with better products pop up, it will be easier for you to make those clean, humane decisions.

I’m honestly proud of you for just trying. Looking for alternative options in your current lifestyle.

So this post is all about plastic products you may use that you don’t even think about. Such as reusable bags to replace the plastic produce bags at grocery stores. I NEVER thought of that! I hope this post makes you think as well.

Replacing Plastic Produce Bags

This is something I NEVER THOUGHT OF. When I’ve bought produce, I’ve completely looked past the fact I’m using plastic for 2 seconds (from store to apartment) to then throw the plastic in the trash!

They have lots of bags from which to choose.

My personal favorite is the mesh bag.

Why?

  • I LOVE the look of them

  • Made from recycled plastic bottles (rPET)

  • Rinse your produce in the bag and pop straight into the fridge. Air flows through the mesh weave allowing your produce to breathe and stay fresh for longer
