Fresh Plaza – Australia: Wash your groceries in the bag
A reusable bag that allows you to wash your fresh groceries before taking them out and storing them in your fridge or on your benchtop is now available in Australia. Onya’s produce bags, which are made from recycled plastic bottles, give shoppers an easy way to clean fruits and vegetables to prevent potential contamination in their home.
This comes after a virologist recently confirmed that ‘every surface is a hazard’ when it comes to COVID-19 and supermarket customers should be particularly mindful of the loose fruit and vegetables in the store.
The strong mesh bags which have a drawstring tie, can be purchased in a pack of five for $15.95 or an eight pack for $19.95. Each bag can hold up to 2.2 kilograms and they’re available in four different colours: green, red, purple and turquoise. The bags can also be washed with a cool water handwash or they can be placed on a cool gentle cycle in the washing machine.
