My goodness... If you live off produce like I do, the amount of plastic waste is unreal.
The solution is so unbelievably simple: reusable produce bags.
Millions of billions of plastic waste would be eliminated if every one would just make the simple decision to buy reusable produce bags. These reusable produce bags have lasted me 3 years now and I plan to have them for many, many, many years to come. They hold up so well that I honestly don't think I will have to replace them for ages.
