Umm, IKEA Makes Seriously Stylish Reusable Produce Bags

Good Housekeeping Logo By Amina Lake Abdelrahman, Good Housekeeping Institute of Good Housekeeping | Slide 1 of 9: If you think you might be using too much plastic, there's a good chance much of it is coming from your weekly trip to the grocery store. Stocking up on fruits, veggies and other produce usually means tearing off several plastic bags per visit — and that can have a negative impact on the environment. But if you're looking for a more sustainable, eco-friendly alternative, in the grocery store and elsewhere, reusable produce bags offer an easy and convenient solution to plastic produce bags. In the Good Housekeeping Institute, we assess everyday sustainable alternatives like reusable grocery bags, straws, baggies and sandwich bags, and of course, produce bags. We tested these using performance evaluations like quality of the bag's top closure and resistance to accidental opening; durability evaluations to review the bag's construction and ability to stand up to wear and tear, and resist fraying; and ease of use evaluations to determine how easy it is to open and close the bag, fill the bag and carry the bag. We also note how easy it is to clean the produce bags and give points for a wide selection of size options. In some cases, we have sent produce bags home with consumer testers who rate the bags based on their personal grocery shopping experience and overall satisfaction. After testing a wide rage of green produce bags, we've determined the best reusable produce bags, whether you're looking for the best reusable produce bags in cotton and mesh as well as those that are best for greens and keeping produce fresh.The below picks (or similar versions) include top-tested picks from Lab and consumer testing or road-tested favorites of our experts and editors.
