Avoid plastic bags when transporting your fruit and veg with these specially designed produce bags. This set contains three bags capable of carrying fruit and veg of varying sizes, perfect for shopping at your local farmers market or green grocers!
Despite supermarkets now charging for plastic bags and several campaigns worldwide calling for people to stop buying bags during every trip to their local shopping store, usage of plastic bags is still incredibly high.
You can get a long list of facts on the the sheer scale of plastic bag usage and harm caused here, but below is a summary of some of the main points:
- Due to their light weight, they are incredibly susceptible to being blown out to sea.
- Plastic bags cause harm to animal life both on land and in the sea through ingestion.
- Ingestion of microplastic by sea life can transfer toxins up the food chain and into our food supply.
- The average seafood consumer in the UK will be ingesting about 11,000 plastic particles every year from plastic breaking down into microplastic in the ocean.
- 550 million plastic bags were sold in the UK in 2018 just by the 7 main retailers!
The solution is so simple - stop buying them and use reusable, non-plastic bags. Not only does it save the environment, but you start saving money too!
