Frequently Asked Questions

How can I tell if a product is compostable?

Compostable produce bags should come with both the seedling logo and OK compost logo, which authenticates the product’s claims of being biodegradable and compostable.

Are mesh produce bags worth it?

Yes, they are. They’re a popular choice for use at supermarkets, as they store fruit and vegetable products and other small foods, such as nuts, dried fruits, bulk grains, and much more. They’re also designed to be resealable, as opposed to plastic bags that need to be tied.

Do mesh vegetable bags work?

Yes, they do. Besides being great for the environment, mesh bags allow any vegetable products to breathe and last longer than if they were stored in plastic bags.
