EcoFriendly 4 U REUSABLE PRODUCE BAGS Review & Giveaway ~ CLOSED

I know that many people have tried to move toward using reusable grocery bags when shopping.  I know I do when I remember to take my bags.  But have you thought about using reusable produce bags??  I had not until I was contacted by EcoFriendly4U to do a review.  I know that I always thought all those bags are such a waste. 

I was sent the Reusable produce bag Gift Set 6 assorted sizes with a bonus cotton carry pouch Bags in Sapphire Blue.  The bags are in 3 different sizes which is nice for different products. 

The set includes:

-2 Large sized nylon produce bags, approx size 11" x 13"

-2 Medium sized bags approx. 9" x 11"

-2 mini singles great for 1 or 2 items like a tomato, kiwi, lemon, etc, approx 6" x 7"

- 1 BONUS drawstring pouch to carry them in, pouch carry bag "will vary" in print but will match the color with your produce bags.

The bags have ribbon drawstirng closures from both sides to make it easier to close.  And then you don't have to deal with those twist ties that break and end up everywhere. 

I took a couple of the bags on my shopping trip recently.  The bags were easy to use and I loved not having to find the roll of bags in the produce area and then fight to get them open.  I purchased corn on the cob and oranges.  The bags worked great to hold these items.  I did have a couple of people looking at me as I used them, in a good way.  I heard one lady say to her husband, "we need some of those."


I think these are a great way to become a little more green and cut out some extra waste.  These would also make a great gift for someone you know that likes to reuse and is hard to shop for.  You can also make them a part of a gift basket.  I am  just thinking about a fruit basket and have the fruit in individual bags in the big basket.  That would be really cute and a great gift.

These bags are made in Canada with Canada and US made items.  So when you purchase you are supporting US and Canada!  EcoFriendly 4 U also makes and sells Reusable sandwich and snack bags.  She has some really cute prints!

Buy It:  Reusable produce bag Gift Set 6 assorted sizes with a bonus cotton carry pouch Bags is $10.  You can also purchase individual bags if you don't want the full set. 


Win It:  EcoFriendly 4 U wants to give a Gift Set like the one I received and a sandwich & snack bag set pictured above to 1 Arizona Mama reader.  This Giveaway will be open worldwide.  This Giveaway ends 9/11
