Description

Replace all your single-use plastic and paper produce bags and use these 100% hemp produce bags in the supermarket, farmers markets or at your local bulk store. These bags are perfect for all your fresh fruits, vegetables, dry goods like pulses, rice and flour, seeds, natural chips, nuts and more.

Hemp is a strong, naturally antimicrobial material, that resists mould and mildew, absorbs a lot of C02 (carbon dioxide) whilst growing, grows much faster than cotton and flax, requires far less land to grow per comparative yield, uses significantly less water than cotton, softens over time, returns up to 70% of the nutrients back to the soil as it grows and doesn’t require harsh herbicides or pesticides. Our hemp is not blended with cottons or synthetics.

The large bag is great for bulkier items or more of them, the medium bag is standard and will fit the majority of your fresh produce, herbs and dry goods and the small size is perfect for seeds, nuts, spices and snacks.

For extra large items consider using our 100% hemp or recycled linen bread bags – they fit even more potatoes, oranges and big, leafy green vegetables well!

These bags are designed to last for years but at end of life, this product can simply be returned to the ground in compost or buried.

In the next 60 seconds around the world, we will purchase about two million plastic bags (1). A trillion plastic bags are used globally each year. By using our produce bags you have purchased a highly sustainable fabric that can be used for years and years. You’ll be reducing the oil required for plastic, the environmental destruction, unethical labor practises and transportation emissions and you’re helping to protect all the animals (especially birds, turtles and whales) that suffer and die from plastic bags. Just remember to bring these with you everywhere!

By purchasing this product you are also reducing major plastic waste and impacts on climate change, supporting our education and research across the world, providing jobs to vulnerable women in Cambodia in our own little product centre, and helping to support environmentalism & education to kids and communities in Cambodia.

These bags are designed to last for years but at end of life, this product can simply be returned to the ground in compost or buried.

Our produce bags are made at our own little centre supporting ethical labor and a happy workplace in rural Cambodia. We love spending a lot of time on the ground here.

Fabric
Our produce bags are made from 100% pure, sustainable hemp from a small farm in Thailand. Hemp is the most eco-friendly fabric and we do not blend it with cottons or nylon.

Drawstring
The drawstring of the bag is made from 100% hemp twine from the same place in Thailand. It is twisted at our small, ethical sewing centre to make the cord.

Label
Our labels are made from the off-cuts we save whilst cutting our products. This helps us reduce waste as much as possible and makes the labels 100% pure hemp.
