Using these is a great way to be eco friendly. Go green with these bags made of super strong fine mesh polyester with stabilizing cross weave called No-See-Um Netting. Approximately 3,700+ holes per square inch.It is stronger than those plastic bags at the grocery store and you can reuse them to help save the environment. Ties with a secured drawstring cord. All seams are triple stitched for strength. The bags are very lightweight so as to not add additional weight. They weigh less than half an ounce.This fine mesh is easy to see through so produce can be scanned at the grocery store without removing it from the bag.(zoom in photo of label and you can see how easy it is to see through it!) It will also not harm even the tenderest produce. You can take your filled bags home, wash the produce right in the bag, wash them in the bag, and put them into the refrigerator, still in the bag! The bags are machine washable cold, hang dry. This material is much stronger than a layer or two of tulle or regular netting that simply will not hold up to the test of time and weight. Buy these with confidence that you are getting the best (see through, lightweight, durable) you can and you are helping the environment. My Reusable Produce Bags are made from the highest quality mosquito netting which provides a chemical-free way of carrying and protecting your fruit, vegetables and other bulk food items. I ALWAYS use no-see-um mosquito netting for these bags, never weaker fabrics such as crinoline, stiff nylon tulle or other netting. If you want a bag that will last, and not harm your food, this is it!

The other netting bags on the market look like they would break, or make mesh-marks on the produce. The organic cotton bags look very “green”, and who doesn’t want that, but you have to remove the food from them at so many stages of the process from selecting to storing --and the cotton will tip the scales more than the no-see-um netting will.
