Reusable Produce Bags as Event Favors

I had an epiphany on Sunday while doing my grocery shopping. Although I typically shop with my reusable canvas grocery bags, I ALWAYS use those little plastic produce bags. What the heck am I thinking? I HATE those little bags - they are a pain in the butt to open and I NEVER reuse them, even though I promise myself every week that I'll save them for next week's shopping trip.

After I got the groceries put away, I went straight to the internet to look up reusable produce bags. I found a plethora of bags and some wedding favor companies offer them as well. What a great idea! Why hadn't I thought of this before?

So I did some more research on this. Here's what I found:

(c) Dream Green Weddings - $3.48 to $4.48 each

(c) - $1.79 to $2.19 each

  • ( - While these bags are made out of synthetic materials (more resistant to shrinking and staining than their cotton counterparts), they are MUCH cheaper than the Dream Green produce bags. At $1.79 to $2.19 each (depending on quantity ordered), these are perfect for inexpensive, eco-conscious favors.
(c) The Knot
Reusable produce bags as a favor would be a huge hit if using locally grown produce in your centerpieces. Your guests could share the centerpieces by taking home a few apples in their new bags. If I was your guest, I would love it!!!

Happy Planning,


  1. A consumable product in a reusable bag! This would be a HUGE step up from the usual unusable favor that people give at their weddings- this is a great idea!
