Meshy Produce Bags

Strong enough for a dozen apples

Have you switched to reusable grocery bags but find yourself still using those clingy plastic produce bags at the supermarket? Now a Canada-based company, HotSacks, sells reusable mesh bags for your fruits and vegetables. They are recyclable, can be reused countless times and come in four fabulous colours.

They are available at Home Outfitters ($4.99 for a set of eight) or online at

Use them for:
  • various fruits like apples, lemons, avocados, grapes, etc.
  • various vegetables including potatoes, onions, peppers, turnips, etc.

  • bulk items such as wrapped candies or nuts in shell, etc.
And, when you use these, you will be the coolest shopper around. Everyone will want to know where you got them!


  1. I have not heard of these...awesome. I will have to find them...

  2. Great idea! I have had a lot of guilt about the plastic produce bags... even while not wanting to have them picked up by extra hands (cashier, bagger). Thanks!
