CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Hot Sacks Review & Giveaway!!CLOSED

Spon­sored by Tomoson.com


HS

Here’s a styl­ish way to carry your pro­duce and use fewer plas­tic bags while you’re at it. These Hot Sacks reusable mesh bags from have many advan­tages over the cloth bags.

I really love that these bags are com­pletely trans­par­ent, which is a major com­plaint about many cloth pro­duce bags. This makes it eas­ier for the check-out per­son to see what you’re buy­ing and read PLU codes, and the same is true for us when we get back home.

Clean­ing is also less of an issue with these mesh bags than with cloth bags. It looks like a sim­ple rinse under warm water would get rid of any stick­i­ness or grit from produce.

I also like that these bags are fairly under­stated. They’re sim­ple and aren’t embla­zoned with any envi­ron­men­tal slo­gans or images. They look sim­i­lar enough to other kinds of pack­ag­ing that they won’t raise eye­brows at the store.

 
Use them for:

•var­i­ous fruits like apples, lemons, avo­ca­dos, grapes, etc

•var­i­ous veg­eta­bles includ­ing pota­toes, onions, pep­pers, etc

•Bulk items such as wrapped can­dies or nuts in shell

•sort­ing items like golf balls, flower bulbs or small toys

 

Meshy Hot Sacks bags are made from poly­eth­yl­ene resin, a fully recy­clable plas­tic, and are fairly inexpensive:

• Meshy Hot Sacks Pro­duce Bag, $4.99 for a set of 8

    I love the meshy pro­duce bags. I feel it’s such a waste to use the plas­tic bags pro­vided at the gro­cery store, they just go in the recy­cle bin once I bring the food home and put it away.
