il_430xn32797794.jpgI’m like a kid in a candy store when perusing the bulk food bins at my local natural foods store. But I always cringe when I scoop my beans, rice or nuts into a plastic or paper bag —  so NOT green… Fortunately, I have found the perfect way to buy in bulk without having to use a disposable bag – thanks to the Etsy shop Plum Creek Mercantile. Their 100% cotton bulk food bags are made with the cutest fabrics and they are all hand sewn. The genius part is that they are sized to fit a gallon jar or a quart jar, which means that when you get home, you will have the perfect quantity for your storage container. No more guessing and no more waste! The bags even come with a grease pen so you can mark the bin number on the bag.
