Easy to use. Lincoln County oregon became plastic bag free so we purchased these. We keep them in our reusable bags. I would highly recommend. They are large, plenty of room left with 6 apples.
These are wonderful. You reuse them instead of throwing away plastic produce bags. The only catch, they weigh a small amount. So, for each purchase, if the checker doesn’t zero out, or tare, the bag, you pay for the weight of the bag. I still feel self conscious asking the checker to tare the bag, because it sounds like I’m saying “tear” and when a checker already knows to tare, I worry that I’m insulting their intelligence.It’s still worth it. And the bags have the tare weight right on them. Really nice.Nevertheless, I prefer using them at Trader Joe where the staff don’t weigh items and I can avoid the whole “tare” thing.
These are great! I like that they're cotton, you see a lot of synthetic reuseables. The tags are great for color-coding what needs to go in the fridge vs. counter. Produce stickers stick well but are easy to remove from the outside. If you're machine washing these, just tuck the drawstring inside first so it doesn't make a ton of noise in the dryer.
Great! As long as you make sure to bring them to the store. Especially love the weight tag they put in there so you make sure you aren’t paying extra, particularly if you are just grabbing a small pepper or cilantro or something.
My favorite produce bags on the planet and someone freakin stole the half of them that were in my car. I’m still mad about it. I had literally just bought them, too.
I have only been able to use these bags once but they worked like a charm. The different sizes is helpful and handy. The largest one easily fits a bunch of celery, and the other sizes are perfect for other produce ie. potatoes, tomatoes, peaches, apples, and bunches of spinach.One suggestion would be to maybe include a finer mesh bag to be able to hold smaller bulk items like cashews. this would be appreciated then I could eliminate using the plastic bags all together.
I am trying to reduce the amount of waste we produce in our household, including even the micro-plastic fiber pollution from man-made fabrics used in many mesh bags. These are cotton, which does make them a bit heavier, but that's a minor drawback in my mind. I thought my teens would be slow to adopt them, but the first time we went shopping with them, the kids saw the mesh bags and grabbed them right away for the veggies.
I love these bags. the fact they are organic cotton made and also, the sizes in these helps me to organize my refrigirator better. buy these if you are OCD like me :)
These Reusable Produce Bags are GREAT! I do need to wash them after each use, especially with all the fresh (wet) produce. I feel so much better going to the grocery store and using these bags as I feel like I'm contributing to less waste on our planet. Since I purchased these two weeks ago, I have saved about 20 plastic bags. It's important to me and my kids (8 and 10) to show how we can help protect our planet (their planet) by making small, smart daily decisions. My only complaint is that I didn't invest in these sooner. 10 stars! :)
These are so useful and I love all of the sizes! I have yet to find a vegetable or fruit that does not fit securely in these bags. Even the baggers and cashiers compliment me on these bags since the weight of these bags is very clear on the label. I also peel off the stickers from my fruits/veggies and place them next to the colorful tags for that the cashiers can find it easily. I've been trying very hard to decrease my use of plastics and this is just one of my favorite eco-friendly purchases.
I’m very happy with these bags and the fact that I’m doing a small part to help the environment. I’m very sure that this is the way of the future. However, I’m frustrated that the big chain grocery stores don’t know how and don’t want to try to subtract the tare bag weight from the produce weight. For now I will keep the produce out of the bags until they have been scanned by the cashier.
I love the feel and results of using these soft cotton bags. So far, the produce has stayed fresh and crisp in these bags in our crisper drawer. The only issues are that you can't see through them well, and the produce stickers (dontcha hate those?!?!?) are not readable by the cashier, so you probably have to take the produce out to be weighed and rung up at checkout.We also have the bulk bin bags, which are excellent as well.As long as you're not annoyed by having to take your produce out of the bag at checkout, they're excellent. Recommended, with caveats as described.
Only had these for a couple weeks but so far really happy with them! One of our first steps towards reducing our use of plastic. They are a thicker mesh than imagined but have worked for something as small as almonds. I really like the range of sizes too. Two thumbs up from us!
I purchased these so I could stop using plastic bags for produce. Well they work really well and wash up good. They don’t fall apart like the Polly bags do and are made of compostable cotton. Exactly as pictured. I’d purchase some as presents for other like minded friends.
I loved that you get so many for the price and they are pretty durable. We used them on our first shopping trip to Meijer and brought our larger bags. We left with zero plastic bags and spent a pretty penny on the groceries. Very satisfied with this product!
Love these bags. Wish I had purchased 2 sets. People stop and ask me for information on them at Whole Foods. Happy to share because these are fantastic. perfect sizes for celery, loose carrots, tomatoes, potatoes and herbs. I have no idea if they add weight to the produce, but most items are by the pound except for herbs so a 1/2 ounce doesn't impact anything. In two shopping trips I reduces my plastic intake by at least 20 produce bags!!! Have not washed yet, but they seem sturdy.
You can use these before or after you buy your produce, nuts, etc. Some stores will tare the bag ahead of time, but with my local grocery store I just grab my produce and use these at the check out. They are VERY thick and durable. They won't snag or tear. The variety of sizes are great and these are larger than I thought they would be.The smallest bag easily fits 4 or 5 LARGE apples, and the larger bags could easily do 4-5 full heads of lettuce.
So happy that I got these. I feel great about not using plastic to pack up my fruits and veggies at the store. Plus if the bags start to get dirty you can easily throw them in the wash. The material is very thick, so I know that nothing will fall out and the bags haven’t frayed after a couple of washes and multiple uses
These have been working great for us. Plastic alternatives have become common enough that the cashiers usually know how to handle it when a customer comes through the line with these.They are easy to clean and the variety of sizes is super convenient.
I really enjoy the presentation upon opening the packaging of these produce bags and the bags themselves. The branding is subtle and enjoyable, just how I like it. The sizes & tag colors are effective and the bags just feel like quality. It's worth paying a bit more than other bags for natural cotton vs synthetic plastic. Great value.
These are gorgeous soft cotton bags that can be used again and again. I bought them to use for my walnut harvest so I can give cute bags away to my friends. I’m hooked! They are really amazing.
I was happy to find a bag that was more than reusable but completely biodegradable too! The large assortment allows my husband and I to both keep bags in our cars for grocery trips. On one occasion a jar leaked, leaving a sticky residue on half my produce bags. It was as simple as rubbing it with water and letting it dry. Good as new! I will definitely be shopping from Colony Co. some more!
I keep a set of these in the back of my car with my grocery totes. We use them when we shop and go to the farmers market. I'm really happy to find them and an alternative to stop using plastic bags.
Purchased these in an effort to reduce waste around the house. I have used them for several grocery trips now and love them. They stretch out a bit when loaded up so each bag holds a ton. This set would accommodate even the biggest produce haul. I try to put a produce sticker on the outside but it doesn't always stick so I have to tell the checker what's in there but that hasn't been a problem for me so far. Recommend!
I have been using these for a few months now and they have been wonderful! THEY HAVE SAVED SO MUCH PLASTIC WASTE! They are very durable and wash well, but I always air dry them. I also receive compliments on them everywhere they go. I also appreciate being able to support a small business with my purchase. Thank you Colony Co.
I like these bags with different sizes and they were made durable. Vegetables could stay fresh in refrigerator for longer time. I also bought bags from other maker which includes both cotton mesh and cotton fabric bags, but I like the mesh bags from this seller better. They are better quality. The cotton fabric bags are good for mushrooms. Hope this seller can include cotton fabric bags as well in future.
Well, these are awesome. I used these on a recent market trip. They are thick and sturdy but don't weigh much at all. At first, I was afraid of snags especially with items like corn on the cob and artichokes. But they held up really well. They are also strong. I bought a few heavy items such as cantaloupe and small watermelon. The bags held up just fine. Two thumbs up!! This item is very well made, easy to use and a great replacement for plastic bags.
Grocery shopping in the produce aisle with my son one day, he reminded me that there are islands in the oceans that consist of discarded plastics. Made me want to purchase these reusable cotton bags for use at the grocery store. These bags are well made and have the actual weight of the bag itself on each individual bag. If we all did a little something like use these reusable bags, maybe we could stop the growth of those plastic islands.
I received my reusable produce bags last week and used them the next day. The checkout clerk and the customer next to me both loved them and wanted to know where I bought them. They are very easy to use and extremely strong. I left them open on the conveyor so that the clerk could identify the contents. So far, These bags get five stars.
I like them a lot. Great to not be using plastic bags for produce anymore. So nice that they have the bag weights on the tag for ease of use in checkout. However, depending on the experience of the register person, I have found some don't use the weights and instead pull the items from the bags to weigh them and then put them back in. That's a store thing though, not a Colony Co. thing. They've provided all the information stores need. Just something you might encounter.
These keep my lettuces fresher for longer than my synthetic mesh bags, not sure why but liking it. The lettuces seem to like touching cotton more, but I put these cotton mesh bags inside a synthetic mesh bag for even longer green leaf storage.
I have been eyeing different reusable produce bags for a while now and I finally decided to give these a try - I am very happy with the quality of them! They're thicker and a little heavier (metal closure) than some of the other brands but the tare weight is clearly listed so the heavier material doesn't matter much to me. Also due to the thickness, I think it's a little harder for the cashier to see the produce codes but I think that's minor.I plan to throw these into a giant lingerie bag for washing (to keep the metal closures from clinking around)
The first time I ordered these, I was inadvertently sent a previously returned order missing a few bags. Disappointed, I contacted Colony Co. to let them know and got the quickest, most courteous, most proactive response I’ve ever had from any customer service department - ever. They refunded me and I ordered new set of bags shortly after. The bags themselves are great - sturdy, color coded, and washable. I’ve never written a review before, but this experience was so refreshing I felt I owed it to them to let everyone else know what an excellent job they did and that these bags are worth the money. Will definitely be on the lookout for more products from this company.
These are great! I love the range of sizes and they seem to be very high quality. This is silly, but I really like the look too. I've had reusable produce bags before, but they were always thin white nylon that lookes like laundry delicates bags. Nylon is very functional, but I enjoy using these more.
Bags are high quality and arrived in good condition. The metal sliding closure is very effective for keeping produce in place. Great for grocery and when you need to take items to a picnic. Recently packed up a bunch of spice jars for a weekend of camping and it worked great. Picked cherries and put them directly into one of the bags. Felt good not to use a bunch of ziplocks or plastic bags.
Bought these to cut down on plastic usage at the store. They have the weights on the sides for the cashiers to take off but most cashiers don’t, but that’s ok actually. I leave all the produce out and just bag it myself anyway when I’m at Winco, Smiths or Sprouts. They don’t seem mind. I like that they are bio degradable. They have held up super great for the last few months. Draw strong works great.
Good quality, great for the environment, and you get a lot for what you spend. Very happy with these. They seem pretty durable too, so I probably won't have to worry about replacing them for a while.
These bags are lovely! We hang them right in our kitchen and take them to our local co-op and grocery stores whenever we can. A great alternative to ugly plastic bags available at stores. Tare weight is written clearly on the label, which makes it easy for our local stores to trust us. A lot of people have seen us use them and ask where we got them; I recommended Colony Co. right away!
We are using it to store non leafy vegetables & fruits stored in the fridge. I am not using the cotton mesh bags for visits to the grocery stores.I will let other people know they can consider buy cotton mesh bags.
These bags are awesome! Great variety, durable and sustainable. That said, if you’re trying to reduce your waste, I would recommend requesting the least amount of packaging possible. These came in a box way bigger than necessary, and there was a lot of packing plastic that did not need to be there since these really can’t get banged up in transit.
I love that these let me avoid using plastic bags at the grocery store. I also love that they are cotton and are machine washable. Because the bags are mesh, they actually stretch quite a bit to hold a lot in them. The only complaint I have is that I wish each size would have the same color tag on them because I end up fishing through the stack to try to find the right size I need instead of being able to easily look for the color. But these are great and I've had people at the grocery store and the cashiers ask me about them.
I love these bags, they are just perfect for an average shopping trip. I bought them because I'm trying to reduce as much plastic and trash in general from my life that I can, and it seemed like a really good idea to have reusable produce bags. Well, I'm certainly not disappointed in these. They look good, the set comes with just the right combination of sizes (though I'm thinking of buying a second set now that summer is rolling around and the farmers' markets are starting to open up), and they are holding up very well so far. They are also the ONLY reusable produce bags I've seen that have no plastic AT ALL. The drawstring clip is metal and all the other companies use the cheap plastic ones that break absurdly easy (I've tried a few). They also don't have any plastic in the shipping materials, it's just a small simple cardboard box, which actually makes me very happy. I've made a handful of trips to the grocery store with these already (I try to buy fruits and veggies as close to when I'll be cooking/eating them as possible) and I've actually gotten a few compliments and a lot of people asking where I purchased them. My mother even wants a set and is threatening to steal mine next time she comes back to visit.My single annoyance comes not from the product but from the grocery stores themselves. Having the tare weight on a brightly coloured tag so it's virtually impossible to miss is brilliant. However, these cashiers now don't seem to understand that they need to enter that weight and that they shouldn't be charging me .07-.11 lbs extra on the price of the produce. I had to explain that twice already. I think that these bags are worth that mild annoyance though. In the grand scheme of things, that's so much less plastic you're using and putting into a landfill over the life of these bags. Totally, absolutely, 100% worth the money, everyone should have a set!
We haven't had them long, so I can't speak to their longevity, but so far they seem great. The string tighteners are metal, tare weights on tags, bags seems well constructed. Very pleased and hope to use these to be 100% off any plastic bags. Well worth the price. Better yet would be an organic hemp version of these!
I love these bags. I thought they might be a little overpriced but you did get a lot of bags for your money. I have only washed them once so we shall see how they hold but. But the strength to carry oranges and avocados in mass amounts for my household is perfect. I even had some ask where I got the bags bc they also want to stop using plastic. :)
Great bags! I have only used them once, so can't speak to how they hold up long term, but so far I love them! The pack comes with different size bags which is great so you can choose the right size bag to your produce. Very happy that i am no longer using so many disposable plastic produce bags, happy to be helping our planet! Love that they are cotton too rather than a polyester.
Very nice bags. Tare weights really help although some of the cashiers struggle figuring it out how to subtract the weight from the purchase on the register. Highly recommend if you would like to reduce your plastic footprint.
Nice strong bags that wash well. The metal button that holds the string tight at the top is fantastic - it’s fast & easy to use and really holds.I was afraid that grocery cashiers would not appreciate the fact that the price code can be hard to read through the bag, but it really hasn’t been a problem. Putting one of the stickers on the bag label helps.Great way to use less plastic!
These are great bags, at check out it is a little hard to see the produce sticker for the cashier, but i just take one off and put it on the metal drawstring clip. Other places usually have a scale so its not a problem you would run into often. But the biggest bag i was able to fit two large bundles of kale in. I hope they wash well but the cotton is very durable and smooth that I don't think i will have to wash them often.
Providing different sizes is really appreciated for diiferent products. Bags can hold a lot more than you expect and strech into a sack shape when filled, material is very giving but strong. Drawstring clasp is heavy duty and slides easily. Haven't had a need to wash them yet but I do not expect any problems after examining the material. Very happy with this purchase! (Published tare weight is a huge bonus, too!)
I bought these to cut down on plastic waste and clutter in my refrigerator. They work very well and are quite sturdy. The smaller ones work well for onions, apples, and other small items. It would be nice if they had an even smaller size for things like garlic or ginger root. The biggest ones are able to hold celery or carrots. If you are wishing to reduce the plastic and the waste, these are a must.
These bags are great! I feel good about reducing my plastic waste and I love that they have the bag weight listed. Highly recommend.
Arrived in a timely fashion. Perfect gift for family members who want to cut down on plastic bag usage. They're strong and made out of cotton, a little more expensive than other products of this type, but they're made of 100% biodegradable components unlike some other competitors.
I am really impressed with these bags. I was worried about stems snagging them and ripping the material, but they are really strong and well made. I had to wash one of them because it got dirty in my fridge and it is still the exact same size as the others after going through the washer and dryer. These are really handy. I think I am ordering more for Christmas presents.
