3 Reasons to go 'reusable' when buying fruit & veg
There has been a big shift in recent years to bringing our own ‘bags for life’ to collect our groceries. This is positive, but why not take it one step further and bring reusable bags for your fruit and veggies.
Here’s our top 3 reasons to go 'reusable' when picking your fruit & veg:
1. Think of the waste you can avoid. By selecting unwrapped fruit and vegetables and using your own reusable bags, you will come home with zero waste.
2. It’s an opportunity reduce single use plastic, which makes up approximately 50% of discarded plastics. Just think about the amount of plastic we can save by making the switch to reusable bags. You may also inspire others to do the same!
3. You can store your food in the bags you brought them, especially useful for the fridge. By selecting natural, breathable bags, it can also help keep produce fresher for longer!
For those of you who shop online, you could consider fruit & veg boxes, which have the advantage of being low waste and mostly plastic free!
