In québec, all grocery stores, and most large surface stores charge for plastic bags, so pretty much everyone has re-useable bags, and they really use them. Except, I have noticed, in the fresh fruit & Veggie isle. We still use those impossible to open plastic bags.

So, I dismantled an old curtain I had lying around, and made Re-useable Fruit & Veggie Bags Since I used a sheer, lightweight material, the bags won't add weight to what your buying, and the cashier can see the produce through the material. 

Neat eh?

Very clever.  Unless whatever produce I'm getting needs it, I usually just opt out of the produce bag.  Why bother right?  But I really like yours and may just have to destroy a shower curtain now...

Thank you for giving us a really great idea.  Reusable produce bags!  I totally didn't think about that!

I also live in Quebec and had noticed the same thing, but I thought that making them would add to the weight of whatever I was buying. Thanks so much for the sheer curtain idea!

This is genius.  It just goes to show that when necessity strikes, crafters come to the rescue.  Great job.

Brilliant!  I've been thinking of doing something similar...it seems so odd to go to the farmers' market and use tons of new plastic bags to buy fresh produce.

My old bedroom curtains are of a fabric like this and since I can't really buy a stock at tupperware -since that's what I use for this purpose- then I think I might as well follow your lead and do what you did. This is awesome, thanks.
