The Eco Shopper Set, by BALUCHON
Never accept single-use plastic bags again, thanks to the Eco Shopper Set!
Buy groceries and without creating waste, with our handmade plastic-free solutions. Made with love (and cotton), the Eco Shopper Set is the perfect reusable alternative to single-use paper and plastic when out grocery shopping.
Each set comprises :
- 1 Avoska Netbag (choose the color in the menu!)
- 1 Set of 6 Produce Bags (2 Small 25cmx35cm + 2 Medium 30cmx40cm + 2 Large 40cmx50cm).
WHAT ARE "PRODUCE BAGS"?
Dedicated to helping you reduce single-use plastic waste and start your zero-waste journey, these produce bags are made of cotton and will replace the disposable plastic bags that are used in shops when buying veggies and fruits.
They also can be used to buy & store veggies, fruits, bread, nuts, grains, herbs, tea, coffee beans, dried fruit, or used as snack bags, bulk food bags, even laundry bags!
How to use them?
When sorting out veggies at the supermarket or market, you are required to put them in separate plastic bags so they can be weighted and a sticker with both weight and price stuck on each disposable bag. Simply refuse the plastic bags and propose to use your produce bag instead. You will be surprised at how many people are pleased by their sight, and congratulate you on your action! If you ever encounter resistance, stay strong, you are doing the right thing :)
Eco-friendly & Compostable:
As they are handmade high-quality cotton muslin bags, they are strong, heat-resistant, breathable, flexible and highly durable. They can be composted at home at the end of their lives.
Produce bags also help keep veggies and fruits fresh and crisp inside the refrigerator, and you can even wash your fruit or veggies in the bags.
Never leaving your side:
Compared to the mesh bags available on the market, that can be a bit bulky, Baluchon's produce bags are so lightweight and foldable that they will discreetly stay at the bottom of your bag all day around.
They are extremely practical! They are not only a substitute for plastic bags, ultimately, you can also use them for storage of any items at home or while traveling, such as toys, cosmetics, beauty accessories, sports equipment & shoes.
Baluchon's Produce Bags are available in different sizes so you'll be covered whether you are buying a few oranges or 2 kilos of potatoes.
WHAT IS AN "AVOSKA NETBAG"?
The Avoska Netbag is lightweight bag perfect for carrying your daily essentials while on the go!
String bags have been used by many cultures in history. As our dear clients Valeria & Karina told us, string bags were popular in Russia and other former USSR republics where they were called "avoska" (Russian: авоська), which may be translated as "what if bag". The bag you always keep with you "just in case".
Since 1860, these Parisian-style net bags have been used in France, Holland and Germany to gather provisions from markets and grocery stores. It is amazing that these remarkably practical “filets” are still relevant and still in use today. Strong, stretchy, compact and useful… just the way you like it.
As the fashion blogger/instagramer Aemilia Madden puts it "Not only does the simple market tote make it easy to carry around my daily necessities (photogenic fruit included, of course), but it's also easy to stow away as an extra bag for later. It's perfect for the beach—no residual sand stuck in the bottom—but is chic enough to bring to the office. And while you may feel more protective over an expensive leather bag, it's guaranteed this style can handle whatever your daily activities may be."
EVERYTHING STARTS WITH THE CUSTOMER: You can make a difference! Take baby steps towards a less wasteful way of life today.
