Certified Organic Produce Bags
Product Eco Rating
These Organic Produce Bags by Australian eco brand Wandering Sol are made with GOTS Certified Organic Cotton and are a great alternative to the conventional Cotton version and cause significantly less harm to the environment than the typical Plastic produce bags that are provided by retailers.
Organic Cotton is grown without the use of chemicals. It’s free from pesticides, fertilisers and the seeds are not genetically modified. Other than the chemical-free farming, Organic Cotton uses around 70-90% less water to grow, as opposed to conventional Cotton. Although, it can require larger volumes of water and more effort during the manufacturing process (when comparing Organic to Conventional Cotton), depending on the resources and capabilities of the manufacturing plant (much the same as most organic/natural materials).
Each of these Produce Bags included in the set of 6 are durable and can be reused time and time again. Organic Cotton is typically stronger than conventional Cotton, due to the lack of chemicals that can make the materials more frail, & when compared to the common Plastic alternative, these Organic Cotton Produce Bags would be considered extremely durable.
As they’re made from natural materials, the bags can be buried or placed in the compost where they will quickly decompose, unlike conventional Cotton or plastic.
The reduction in harm to the environment during the farming and manufacturing process of Organic Cotton compared to typical Cotton, the fact that they are washable and reusable, unlike Plastic produce bags and the ability for the entire item to quickly decompose once buried is why these Organic Cotton Produce Bags, including the Canvas Tote Bag from Wandering Sol are considered to be a brilliant, sustainable product and a fantastic alternative to typical produce bags.
