Quite a few of you have asked about the reusable bags that I store food in.
They are called Neat-os! They are a very small company owned by a friend of mine, and they are made in the USA. I’ve used Neat-os since my first bike ride across the USA in 2013.
These are a great tool for shopping package free and reducing the amount of trash that I make. Whether it’s these bags, or something else, it’s an absolute must for me to have my refillable containers. Besides the environmental benefit, this also helps me to eat whole foods rather than packaged and processed food, which tend to be less healthy than whole foods. Bulk foods also save me a lot of money, as they tend to be far cheaper than packaged, processed foods. Using reusable bags like this can help prevent thousands of plastic bags and packaging from being created. Most of us are using reusable shopping bags already, but many of us can step up our game in reducing packaged foods.
