Organic cotton and muslin bags
Keeping your produce, grains and other staples fresh is important for all of us, helping the food remain tasty and saving us money. But rather than wrapping your food in plastic bags or flimsy containers, why not try reusable bags that maintain the freshness of your food without producing more waste?
JH: A set of each size (three per set, so six bags in total) arms you very well to complete a zero waste shop (meaning you don't take any plastic bags of packaging away with you). To do this, you will need to go to a market where the food isn't wrapped up in plastic. This also means you buy what you need instead of buying the serving the supermarket decided to suffocate in plastic to ensure that you buy more. Also, this supports smaller, local businesses that we definitely what to keep in the city.
Mesh bags can be used for fruit and vegetables, while muslin bags are great for rice, beans, dried fruit, nuts, bread and crisps. Each bag comes in three sizes, small (25RMB), medium (30RMB) or large (35RMB) and a set of all three sizes (75RMB) means you save 15RMB.
