Cloth bags for produce and bulk shopping.

I found these cloth bags in a health food store, and started using them to buy all the dry bulk items: nuts, seeds, grains, beans, pasta, fig bars (wrap them in wax paper first to retain moisture), snacks such as sesame sticks... They are good for produce as well. So many people here in Jacksonville have asked me where I bought them, that I decided to find the source online. They are called eco-bags, and are made in India, of organic cotton. I've been using them for almost a year now, and they are still as good as new. Think of all the trips to the supermarket, and all the plastic that comes home in each trip from the produce and bulk departments. That plastic is not recyclable and ends up in the trash, which means in the city dump. They don't break down. It's a total, complete waste.
