I’m an eco-friendly teen and the founder of Earth2U Products. Throughout the last few years I have been made aware of the plastic crisis. I didn’t notice the severity of this problem until I got a job working as a cashier at a local grocery store. This opportunity was an eye-opening experience for me as I saw how much plastic was being used and/or wasted. Plastic produce bags are a huge contributor to the plastic crisis. I started monitoring the amount of produce bags that customers used during my shifts. I was shocked to discover that hundreds of plastic produce bags were used within a five hour shift time frame at my till. I felt compelled to find a solution so I decided to start my own research. Did you know plastic produce bags can take up to 1000 years to decompose? Plastic produce bags are also harmful to the environment. Marine animals such as whales and turtles are known for mistakenly eating theses plastic bags. I started searching for a sustainable solution and sourced out a reusable, cotton mesh produce bag. Earth2U Products is pleased to introduce reusable cotton mesh produce bags which come in two convenient sizes.
