Reuse and Save: Girl Approved!

When Boy was growing up, we were probably the greenest family I knew.  We were green before it was even a thang, y’all!

No paper towels.  Paper bags reused for pooper-scooping.  No dyes in our cheeses.  Mulching leaves and grass clippings.  You know, that kinda thing.

Wouldn’t you know it, Boy married a gal that is also on the reuse and recycle bandwagon.

During my visit last week, I noticed that Girl used a reusable fabric bag to stow an apple in while we ran errands.  I noted the bag, meant to ask her about it, then promptly forgot.  Who could blame me with Sweet E an arms-length away?


As I rooted around the Internets, shopping FOR YOU!, I came across the bags again.  This time, I paid attention….and talked to Girl about hers.  She loves it.  She uses it.  Pretty good recommendation.  (those of us who have tried green alternatives know that some products fall flat)

Here a visual of what I’m talking about:

    Wow.. Thank You. I’ve been green since before anyone had a word for it and its always bothered me that baggies were just so easy to use. I haven’t find an easy, light alternative.
    My D-i-L’s made fun on me on Thanksgiving when being so “green” about everything, making sure that all could be the three “R”‘s, I packed the left overs in plastic bags. They were dears but they were right.

    Thank you for this suggestion

      I reuse my baggies, ie WASH THEM OUT (ugh), and it’s a pain. So this is definitely something that would be easy to switch to.

  2. What a great idea! I love that recycling has come so far — not that we don’t have a long way to go to save this planet but it is getting better! One of the things I really love about most areas of southern California is the trash recycling. Many neighborhoods — like ours — have 3 trash cans. Brown for trash, gray for recyclables of any kind and the green one is for greens! Because it is warm here year round there are leaves, grass clippings and such all year round, too. We throw spoiled fruits and such in there, too. Every little bit helps!

      I like the idea of using something till it just can’t be used any more. Here we try to mulch leaves and grass clippings. When I see anyone who has a bag full of clippings I want to take it home and put it in my garden!

  3. I have considered these, but just haven’t tried them yet. Eventually I’ll get around to it.

  4. Thank you! I have wondered about these, but didn’t know how I’d wash them or if they’d get moldy. lol So cool to just pop them in the dishwasher!

  5. These are so cute and I would have never thought about finding something greener in place of traditional ziploc bags! Thanks so much for sharing! I pinned them for later! Julia @

  6. These are great for the kids school lunches. I currently use containers, but they’re just sometimes too bulky for their lunch bags!

  7. Ooooh! I have been wanting to make the switch to re-useable baggies like this… I may have to do some shopping!

    Thank you so much for linking this (and the other posts) up at my Oh HAPPY Day party! =)

  8. Thanks for showing us this fabulous product – it looks like a brilliant alternative to plastic bags! Off to check out what other colours it comes in!

  9. Thanks for the tip! I hadn’t seen these before.

  11. I’ve heard of this reusable baggies, but I’ve never spotted them in the store. I like ordering things online, but only things I’ve seen in person before. Weird, I know. Hopefully I’ll get to check them out in person soon!

    • Mrs. Tucker says

      Now that you mention it, I’ve never noticed them in stores, but then again I wasn’t looking. I’ll have to keep my eyes open.

  12. What an awesome idea. I do love the blue!

    I would definitely buy and use this!!
