March’s Zero Waste Feature Item
Credo Bags Reusable Produce Bags
Credo Bags is a company based in Montreal, Canada. Since 2008, their goal is to inspire people to reduce plastic waste in the environment by providing practical alternatives. Their signature mesh cotton produce bag can be used instead of a single-use plastic bag, which takes roughly 600 years to disintegrate. The reusable cotton alternative is produced in Canada, which supports the Canadian labour force and keeps the carbon footprint of transportation to a minimum.
In the past ten years, Credo Bags has witnessed the rapid growth of the Zero Waste Movement and their products directly support the package-conscious lifestyle. This company emphasizes the importance of ethically sourced renewable materials, and as a result, they favour organic cotton and hemp. These materials are unbleached, minimally processed, and entirely compostable, meaning they have a very small carbon footprint. The Credo Bags commitment to sustainable materials means that supply cannot always meet the demand so these mesh produce bags have occasionally been out of stock at the GreenUP Store. Thankfully, we currently have a range of sizes in stock, including a multi pack which includes 2 Medium and 2 Large Produce Bags for $35.
Using reusable produce bags is a simple, effective way to reduce your personal consumption of single-use plastics. It’s a great step toward your Zero Waste Goals! #zerowaste
