Why does the planet need these?
Plastic bags are pollution: Over 8 million tons of plastic end up in our oceans every year, and plastic bags are one of the top 4 contributors to that waste. Plastic bags are one of the many plastics that break up into "microplastics", which end up in the bellies of many marine animals, including our mascot, the narwhal! This ends up choking marine life, or if they survive, ends up being ingested by us.
Reusable bags do not contribute to waste: By using reusable bags for produce and other groceries, you are significantly cutting down on your plastic waste, and doing that much more for the planet.

I purchased 2 sets of the Reusable Mesh Produce bags, and they are just great, easy to use and keep my produce fresh for longer. Plastic bags make everything sweat and go off so quick, best of all no more horrible plastic bags!
I need to remember to take them with me when I shop. But, when I do use them, they work great and are so easy to clean. I can even rinse my produce while in the bags.
Noble Narwhal has excellent customer service especially regarding mailing. They were so helpful in getting these to me when I felt really anxious about all the plastic I was using. After examining some of my unsustainable habits, one of the biggest things I would always walk away with are plastic bags for produce at the grocery store. These bags are so helpful for just that and come in so many different sizes -- the tall ones are good for kale and carrots and the smaller ones for mushrooms and tomatoes. Really love these bags and now I use them for other things too -- laundry, bathroom storage, you name it.
I am using these for everything fresh except cut onion. They keep my vegetables fresher longer. Much less waste.
The bags are well made, easily closed (and stay closed), good variety of sizes, and a nice density mesh.
