32 out of 34 people would recommend this product05/02/2022, By TLWell-suited to their purpose. Just note that if you are weighing items before going to the till at a Checkers for example, the sticker from the scale won't stick well to these bags, just pop it inside the bag so it doesn't get lost.24/01/2021, By CaitlynI'm quite happy with these bags. They do not seem as sturdy as the Tiptoe Totes, but they do the job. The small ones are nice for a couple of plums or nectarines, and the large ones are good for 4 to 6 large potatoes, or a big bunch of bananas.06/12/2020, By AndreaSuper useful zero waste solution for shopping24/09/2020, By SandySave the planet - use fresh bags which are soft and easy to wash.26/07/2020, By HeellayahThey are re usable .24/04/2020, By ASuch a clever design02/04/2020, By WinnerSometimes I just wish I could put the fruits straight into this in the shop19/02/2020, By BGood very useful09/02/2020, By OrignalExcellent26/01/2020, By BiancaGreat product! No need for single use plastics17/01/2020, By SupportWell done11/12/2019, By CelineLove this product! Great size to use for shopping for a small batch of fruit and veg. All stores seem to accept the bags without any hassle.06/12/2019, By InafThis is a very good product, and love the idea of replacing the single use plastic bags but it is very expensive in comparison to some of the other brands. The Pick n Pay large produce bag sells for R7 each, which is also nice.26/11/2019, By WillemienPerfect bags, I'm ordering more!
These bags are big enough to carry a good amount of vegetables at a time.
Although the mesh is lightweight and very breathable its not flimsy, and i haven't had to worry about it ripping, even with a fair number of large potatoes in the bag.
Add to that the fact the fine dense mesh keeps flaky onion leaves from scattering everywhere in my kitchen - I'm a fan!
01/10/2019, By MichelleGreat for shopping for loose produce. Haven't had a problem with buying at any grocery store, and the price stickers come off easily. Easy to clean and the drawstring closure means no more struggling to untie bags when unpacking groceries. They are very lightweight which is great, but also means I lose them in my giant tote bags often.27/08/2019, By KellyGood quality and nice size. You can fit a big bunch of bananas in it.15/07/2019, By BiancaVery handy when shopping for fresh fruit and veggies. Great alternative for plastic bags.21/06/2019, By TaylaSO compact and easy to transport. What a wonderful way to reduce single use plastic consumption. I have the large bags and am incredibly satisfied with how much they can hold.24/05/2019, By JThese are lightweight and small. Good for when you need a few light things. For example, three or four apples is fine, three oranges is a bit heavy. Tiptoe Totes reusable bags are more suitable for heavier produce like potatoes.
The different coloured ribbons on these FreshBag bags are a nice thought, and they act as an effective drawstring, so you don't need to tie your bags closed.11/05/2019, By JacquelineI love theses! I bought one pack to try them out, and have now bought a second pack. They are so light weight and fit easily into a small pocket in my handbag, so I always have them with me. A great solution if you want to say no to plastic.01/04/2019, By FrancesThese bags are excellent for fresh produce. A good size, transparent and fold down to nearly nothing. I'm buying more!30/01/2019, By VeronicaPerfect way to avoid the nasty plastic bags when shopping for loose fruit and veg. Love it.I would definitely recommend this useful product to anyone concerned with plastic packaging in shops.23/12/2018, By RuthThe bags are very light weight and pack up small so can easily be carried in your handbag at all times so they’re there when you need them.19/11/2018, By CarlaI got these bags a while ago and they are really so nice. The uses for them are endless. An absolute must for any zero waster.29/07/2018, By StaceyThe bags are good quality and well made - a great alternative to plastic.17/07/2018, By GiselaBeautifully made and very practical. I bought several and will be keeping those I don't use as gifts. They hold a decent amount of veggies/fruit, and I keep 2 in my car for when I go shopping. Love these bags!09/06/2018, By CmLove it. Small enough for 3 onions or 2 oranges or 3 peppers.26/05/2018, By NickyAvailable in different sizes and great for supermarket fruit and veg purchases.21/05/2018, By YvetteThey feel a little flimsy, like they can't hold much weight, but they haven't done too badly. Love having them in my bag to substitute for those plastic bags - will never use anything else again. Have only had them for 2 weeks so not sure if they'll last long, but here's hoping they do!13/03/2018, By EveGreat way of saying no to all those plastic bags in the supermarket. The netting material feels a little flimsy, so I'm not certain how long the bags will last, but on the first usage it was able to hold 750 g of veggies without tearing. If it's still going strong in 6 months, I'll increase my rating to 5.02/01/2018, By LynzI don't know how we ever lived without these! My heart is so much happier in the produce section!07/10/2017, By SaschaI think these bags are fantastic. I use mine quite often and haven't had any issues with the quality of the fabric.28/09/2017, By VashaI bought the standard size bags, and was really disappointed with the small size, and how flimsy the bags were. But in retrospect, they are actually very hardy in comparison to other bags being made locally. I've had mine for a few months now, and they are lasting, with not a single tear or snag. A great product to reduce the use of single use plastic.22/09/2017, By AdeleReally disappointed. Though expertly made with great attention to detail the quality of the fabric is very poor and the whole point of using these bags over and over to reduce waist is defeated. They regrettably will not stand the test of time and I have decided to rather hang them in my wardrobe with potpourri.
