Giveaway for Washable Produce Bags!

Did you know that June is “National Fresh Fruit & Vegetable Month?”

Me neither. Until yesterday.

Lucky for you, I have a giveaway that will help you preserve your fresh fruits and vegetables… longer and more safely than the cheap-plastic toxin-emitting produce bags that you get at the grocery store.


1 lucky winner will receive one package of Washable Products Bags.  I am in love with this product and believe you will be, too (I found at some specialty chain but can’t remember which one). What I do know is that these babies are available to purchase online, so I did just that. 

I purchased one to giveaway to one of you! 

One package contains 5 reusable bags approximately 12” x 15” plus 1 approximately 8” x 12”.  I say “approximately” because these bags are the creation of Cindi Valverde, an artist and a sewing instructor.  Here’s her story.

Contest ends Thursday, June 30th, at midnight (CDT).  I will pick a winner via randomizer on Friday, July 1st.


Leave me a comment, preferable with your twitter or blog name to make it easy to contact you. 

Comment question:  What fruit or vegetable are you always having to throw away because it rots… so therefore you would love to have these washable produce bags so they can last longer?

No purchase necessary to enter. Contest void where prohibited. Contest open to members who are 18 years or older. Contest open only to US residents only, although this one makes sense if you are in the Northwest Arkansas area.

Good luck!


Eat well, my friends.  Eat well.


  1. My spinach is always going bad first. First it gets slimy and I have to pick the slimy parts off (because I'm cheap like that) then I finally get sick of mostly slime with some decent leaves I have to rinse off...

  2. Same as Heidi - any spinach, lettuce, or leafy green always goes bad before I can use it all. Which stinks, because I love using spinach and kale!

  3. Love that you can see inside these. I have a few canvas ones, but end up taking the produce out b/c I can't tell whats inside when it's in the fridge. I'd love, love to win & try this brand.
    Most recently it's been peaches, but I have to agree w/ Heidi, spinach or other greens is most often tossed. :(

  4. Most recently - peaches! :( It was very sad! I never knew there was an alternative to those grocery store produce bags! hooray!

  5. i would have to say non common vegetables i generally get from the farmers market. i have no problem going through greens or onions fast enough as i use them all the time but recently i lost some kale and squash. just didn't have enough time to fit them in. plus produce from the farmers market is not treated so it doesn't last long.

  6. lettuce, we ead a lot of salad and it just doesn't seem to keep as long

  7. Fresh produce last so much better when you get it right of the garden. The cold storage we bring home from the grocery chains just don't last at all.

  8. we throw away half eaten containers of green leaf spinach. it's a pity really because I hate to waste stuff.
