My Favorite Reusable Bag

Many years ago as a professional ballet dancer, I carried my ballet shoes in a string bag. My pointe shoes needed air after those long rehearsals. I remember shopping with a fellow dancer and watching her dump out her shoes in the car and then refill her mesh bag with apples and oranges.

My current string bag never carried my shoes, only produce. It is by far my favorite reusable bag. I love walking through Whole Foods and filling it with organic pears, apples, mangoes, onions, cucumbers, carrots, and it’s even strong enough for a melon. At the register, the cashier weighs and rings up my fruit and veggies with ease. Then, they put it all back in the bag, and I carry it out.

As I continue to shop with my reusable bags, I am noticing all of the packaging and other unnecessary plastic bags. DwellSmart carries an array of string bags, if I remember correctly, they were six dollars. You can also buy them through EcoBags, though we all know it’s important to support our local businesses. Go ahead and buy two, it is always good share green ideas with a friend!

    I think that reusable bags are a very good and clever way to reduce pollution and waste. I’ve heard that polypropylene does this really well, too. String bags are pretty great too, especially since they don’t take very many materials to make in the first place! Thanks for sharing.
