Onya weigh fruit and veg bags

I bought a set of Onya Weigh Fruit and Veg Reusable Bags years ago and keep them in my handbag. They’ve confused a few shop assistants but many people have thought they were a really good idea. They are made from made from rPet (recycled plastic bottles) and I think they’re some of the best reusable produce bags because:

  • 5 bags come in a small pouch (various colours available) with a handy carabiner so you can clip it to the handle of your bag, zip, etc.
  • Very light so don’t really add anything to the scales and the price of your fruit and veg.
  • Strong and durable – Onya say they can easily carry 2kg products.
  • Drawstring opening so you can keep your produce secure in the bag.
  • Net design means shop assistants can see what’s inside.
  • Can be used as a collander so you can wash the produce inside.
  • Prefer to store fruit and veg in them as it’s better than sweating away in a plastic bag.
  • Drawstring can be used to hang up your produce in the bag.
  • When the bags get dirty, you can just pop them in the washing machine.
