Reusable organic cotton produce bags are simple, plastic-free alternatives to disposable plastic bags. Ideal for carrying your veggies and bulk foods, they’re also great for straining rice and nut milks. By keeping food fresher longer than traditional plastic, they’re an equally responsible and rewarding option.
Buzzee Maker Pushpa Santhosh was inspired by her father, who wove cotton for more than four decades in India, and her mother, who used the fabric to bag produce and cover jars. When Pushpa’s son was born in 2016, she wanted to minimize how much plastic her family used and threw away. Drawing from her family history, she decided to try her hand at making a cotton-based alternative.
Buzzee’s reusable approach helps reduce single-use plastics, like baggies and cling wrap. With vibrant patterns (including one drawn by Pushpa’s young daughter) and all-natural ingredients (like coconut oil and Himalayan pine tree resin), they’re reusable, compostable, and longer-lasting than their plastic counterparts. A wrap can work to store produce, seal up leftovers, stash a sandwich, and, above all, reduce plastic consumption while keeping food fresh.
