Reusable nylon bulk food bags are the zero waste alternative to throwaway plastic bags.
(One of the delights of shopping from the bulk food bins of your local natural food store is being able to try out small amounts of unusual or exotic foods. This Bhutanese red rice is nutty and delicious, and adds colour to your palette as well as your palate.)
These lighweight nylon bags are the answer to my frustration with the endless plastic bags which kept coming into my home filled with flour, sugar, beans and other bulk foods and produce. If you, like me, are buying bulk food in order to cut down on packaging then you know exactly what I mean. I have been using some of my original Kootsac bags now for years and they are still going strong. I wash them after each use, often just a rinse at the kitchen sink is all they need, They are dry in less than two hours and then straight into my grocery shopping bag or purse, ready for next time.
