During my years of United Kingdom I must of consumed hundreds of plastic bags. Everything is packaged in plastic bags of variety of sizes and it does not cost any extra. In Finland  you have to pay extra 10 cents for a bag in the supermarket, but not for the fruit bags. Some supermarkets are offering bio fruit bags and the reusable fruit bags. We have opted these ones, because I started getting frustrated how many plastic bags were being cumulated in our kitchen cupboard to store ‘possible use’. So we have now bought a collection of the Red Cross reusable fruit bags. Link for more information below:  https://www.punaisenristinkauppa.fi/tuote/T1650993/Kestopussit%20hedelmille%20ja%20vihanneksille?openGroup=819 . Bags would be easy also to sow at home, if you have got the skills and materials.

According to Red Cross if one in four Finns would use these bags in Finland we could save millions of plastic bags. Think how much if everyone in the world would be using them! Lets start a revolution!

We have the bags usually on the side pocket of my rucksack, so I will always have them with me. I do the food shopping in our household and we do by lots of veggies each week, especially here in Barcelona. Cherries are my current favourites and snacks! Photos are from yesterday when I found a organic green grocers from Hostafrancs Sense Intermediaris (http://goodgoal.org/review/sense-intermediaris/). Slightly more expensive than our local green grocers and no bio waste or reusable fruit bags… Maybe they should learn something from Finland!
