As Promised...A Giveaway (Winner Announced)

The winner of this giveaway is comment #13 and that belongs to Mel!  You've been sent an email.  Congrats and thanks everyone for entering!



So my original intent was that once I reached 100 followers via Google I would do a giveaway but seeing how slow that was going to go, I decided to make it 100 followers and subscribers.  Well we hit that number this week!  Here's a giveaway of my new favorite thing...Earth friendly produce bags.

We always use reusable bags but felt a little hypocritical using those plastic bags to bag up our produce.  We saw these in the produce department at our local grocery store and LOVE them.  Every time we go through the line the cashiers always comment on them and where did we get them.  Uh... at your work!  ;-)  They are super easy to care for too because after a use or two just throw them in the laundry.  I think we have 12 of them! 

How to enter
Leave a comment below and tell me what kind of produce would you bag up in these bad boys?  You have until Friday, July 2 at 6pm EST.  The winner will be announced Friday night so come on back then to see if you're going help Mother Earth by doing nothing more than hanging out here!

====================
Thanks for helping me get to 100 followers/subscribers!  Let's keep the upward trend!  Subscribe by email or RSS feed!

  1. What an awesome idea! I've never seen something like that before, but I always feel so guilty using plastic bags for one or two small items. As for what I'd put in there? Bell peppers, peaches, and apples are staples in my house :)

  2. Those are so great, I've never seen them. I'd use them for apples, peppers, asparagus, snow peas, celery, and SO much more! Great giveaway!

  3. I've never seen anything like them, either--cool. I'd store broccoli and celery and carrots, oh my! (All that and much, much more!)

  4. Ok, how cool are those?!? Mine would house apples, apples, and more apples. My three kids are the spawn of Johnny Appleseed himself, I swear! So yeah, LOVE the idea :)

  5. Off the top of my head: I would bag up kale, apples, grapes, asparagus, and collard greens!

  6. Those are a great idea. I'm with you on feeling a little guilty about using the disposable produce bags when carting around all of my regular re-usable bags. Thus, I don't use produce bags unless I can help it, normally when the produce would make a mess if left without a bag.

    I'm guessing you probably won't want to ship them to Canada, but I thought I would answer your question anyway. I would use them for sugar snap peas, grapes, green beans, lettuce, and more. The possibilities are endless, depending on what is in season.

  7. What a great idea. I always feel guilty when I am throwing those little plastic bags away. I would use them for everything from fresh lettuce (I don't buy the bagged stuff), tomatoes, peppers, and all kinds of yummy stuff! They would come in so handy at the farmer's market. =)

  8. I have a garden this summer and would use the bags for messy produce that I'm not growing this year, especially onions and celery as well as peaches and pears. I've never seen bags like these at my local grocery store either!

  9. Those would come in handy at the farmer's market (where they like it if you can leave behind the baskets). Sugar snap peas and green beans. MMM!

  10. I would happily bag bananas, oranges, apples, all those new veggies I want to try that then sit in the fridge while I wonder what the heck to do with them.

    I try not to use the little plastic bags too much, but my husband then looks at me like, "What am I supposed to do with this pepper? It's not in a bag, where do I put it?" He then puts it in one of the giant plastic grocery bags before putting it in our reuseable bags.

  11. Ohhh, I haven't seen those before and would love to win 'em! I'd be bagging up ALL my produce in them, from lettuce and tomatoes to peppers and potatoes. Very cool idea!

  12. COOL!!!! What awesome bags? Never heard of them till now!

    Let's see: red and green bell peppers, cukes, tomatoes, cabbage, apples, grapes, sweet potatoes, green beans and sugar-snap peas!

    Good luck to all!

  13. Wow, I've never seen those either - which is surprising given the green circles I run in. I'd be the talk of the town!

    I'd bag anything! Lettuce, peppers (sweet and hot), tomatoes, artichokes, zucchini, oranges, apples, you name it! And I'd feel tons better about it along the way!

  14. I haven't seen those at my grocery store either! Those look great and I'd LOVE to not use the plastic produce bags anymore.

    Mine would hold asparagus, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, celery, sugar-snap peas, string beans, pineapples (maybe not), grapes, zucchini and yellow squash. Maybe some pasilla, poblano and jalapeno peppers from my local Mexican grocery store.

  15. Those are so COOL!! I've often thought that the world needed something like that-lol! No doubt about it my most often purchased produce is onions-lol-put them in just about EVERYTHING...but, fruit wise I'd buy anything in season...mangos, oranges, avocados, and more :). *whispering to self-please, please, please let me win*-lol!

  16. hum...my apologies if this is a second message. Not trying to "game" the giveaway - I just don't see my last comment. Feel free to delete one of them if this is my second one.

    I'd use my baggies for bok choy and lemon grass and snap peas. I love me some stir fry! LOL

  17. I'm on a Farmer's Market spree - hitting at least 3 per week in my area to stock up on fresh fruit and veggies. I'm spending more than usual (and totally worth it) and so I am NOT letting anything go to waste! These would help a ton!

  19. I would go to the local farmers market and fill up on whatever seasonal goodies they have to offer for the week. peas, beans, berries...all so good!

  20. My most commonly plastic bagged fruits and veggies are: zucchini, apples, oranges and kale. I've wanted to get some of these reusable veggie bags for a while. Great giveaway!

  21. I'd put zucchini and squash, mixed greens and onions in there!

    THOSE ARE AWESOME!

  22. As my daughter's favorites, apples, bananas, cucumbers, and oranges. Thank you for the giveaway and even more for such an inspirational blog.

  23. I would use the bags for grapefruit, cherries, plums, new potatoes, brussel sprouts, grapes, lettuce, tomatoes, green onions, strawberries, peaches & onions.

  24. These look like a good complement to the "Green" bags. I would probably try them for onions, potatoes, beets, carrots, parsmips and the other root veggies.
