Pack your produce in 3B Bags, not plastic

If you've been using your reusable grocery bags, pat yourself on the back. But if those reusable bags are filled with flimsy, throwaway produce bags, it's time to instill another habit.

If you've been using your reusable grocery bags, pat yourself on the back. But if those reusable bags are filled with flimsy, throwaway produce bags, it's time to instill another habit.

Pick up a set of three reusable produce bags from 3B Bags. The bags, made of a fine mesh, are machine washable; lightweight to carry (no excuse there!); see-through so the grocery store can see what you've selected; and secured with a drawstring so your oranges aren't rolling around the bottom of your bag.

Included are two standard 11-by-14-inch bags and one that's oversized -- 14.5 by 18.5 inches -- for larger or taller items.

The bag set ($7.50) is available online at www.3bbags.com , or at several grocery chains in the Rocky Mountain region. Not in the Rockies? Ask for them to be stocked at your local grocer. Tell them it's a win-win: They'll save money by stocking fewer plastic bags and the store and its customers are both taking the next step to help the environment.
