Here is a link from the Berkley Farmer's Market...who went completely PLASTIC FREE last year. It is surprisingly simple, once the decision is made skip the plastic bags...

We have replaced the plastic shopping produce bags with paper in our produce section. We are also offering canvas or mesh re-usable produce bag sets (range from $10 to $20). Or, we can give you a cardboard box, or help you load your loose produce from your shopping basket into your shopping bag. Thanks for supporting our efforts to minimize plastic bags!

No plastic Shopping bags here....

 

Please bring your own re-useable shopping bag. If you forgot, you could buy a lovely  reusable bag from us, or we can supply you with a cardboard box. If you REALLY want a bag, you can buy a recycled paper one for a quarter, and we will donate any proceeds to the local food bank. A step toward a smaller ecological footprint....
