What makes our Reusable Bulk Food Bag Set so good?
We love bulk food shopping as it is a great way to reduce waste in your life, but sometimes either remembering to or carrying lots of jars and containers can be really inconvenient.
Our beautiful vintage style reusable bulk food bag set has been designed to provide a convenient alternative for taking jars and containers to your local bulk food store.
The bulk food bags are also super handy to use when you would like to top up half filled containers at home. This means you no longer need to stock up on extra jars and containers on top of your current ones to use as “top up” containers, as our bulk food bags give you a light and compact way to top up as you need.
We love diverting existing waste from landfill which is why our bulk food bags are made from BPA free, food safe recycled plastic drink bottles.
Our bulk food bag set contains a large, medium and small bulk food bag along with our specially designed bulk food shopping tote. They are all conveniently stored in our innovative bulk food carry case which comes with an attached carabiner that can be clipped on to your bag and belt so you always have your bags On Ya.
Our Shopping tote boasts a double lined base and extra wide square gusset making it perfect for transporting bulk foods in both bags and jars.
Each of our bulk food bags feature the tare weight of the bag in both grams and ounces and they also have a clear window made of non-toxic, BPA & chlorine free PEVA. This window allows you to not only easily see what is inside your bag, but you can also write in that window the product, as well as any unique codes you may need when checking out. We recommend a coloured wax pencil or whiteboard marker only as permanent marker can be very difficult to remove. The window especially helpful when distinguishing products such as Self Raising and Plain Flour that otherwise look identical.
The volumes of the bulk food bags vary dependent on what you are putting in them. For example a small bag of flour is going to weigh more than a small bag of corn chips, but to give a rough idea we have modelled the look of our Bulk Food Bags on the classic 1kg/2lb and 2kg/4lb flour bags with the large being able to carry as much as 5kg/11lb.

Please note: The goal for our reusable bulk bags is to be able help people easily and conveniently transport their bulk food purchases home. The bags have been designed as a lightweight top up tool to replace the need for carrying jars and canisters when doing your shopping, and when you bring them home you should empty the contents into your storage jars and containers.
Although made from recycled plastic drink bottles and technically plastic, the rPET material that makes our bags is woven in nature not solid state plastic like a single use plastic bag which is non-permeable for air and water.
Because of the woven nature of the fabric, a solid state plastic bag will definitely prevent air from reaching the bulk food products better than our bulk bags will when storing your bulk food products. Things like pasta hold well in them, but things that rely on freshness are better stored in an airtight container.
Our bulk bags are definitely at their best when used to carry home your bulk food dry goods and transfer the contents into your bulk food storage jars and containers to ensure freshness.
A note on our packaging: Our commitment to sustainability extends to our packaging which is made from post-consumer recycled material and printed with water based inks so it is suitable for both recycling and composting. We ship low waste and plastic free, reusing boxes and packing materials where we can or FSC certified shipping envelopes that are 100% recyclable.

What is Plastic Free Shopping?
You might be trying to avoid plastic in every other part of your life, but at the supermarket, that sneaky stuff is literally everywhere. Australians buy a whopping 118,000 tonnes of plastic bottles every year. If that’s just bottles, can you imagine what that number would be once we include bags, containers and other packaging? Unfortunately, too many are still asking, ‘what’s the problem with plastic?’. To put it simply, plastics are made from natural resources like crude oil, gas and coal which are non-renewable and never break down. Unlike organic matter, plastic won’t actually break up and be reabsorbed; it just gets smaller. It is thought that hundreds of thousands of sea life, including dolphins, whales and fish, die every year because of this hazardous substance washing up in our oceans. Even more disturbing for our health, each of us are ingesting more of these microscopic plastic pieces every year.
Part of the solution is plastic free shopping. Excitingly, there is a global movement growing every day that is encouraging us to vote with our dollars and support businesses that allow us to shop single use plastic free. Bulk food shopping is a sustainable answer for many Australians as it allows us to shop guilt free. Unfortunately, shopping for bulk food means having to carry heavy jars and containers to fill up at your local store. That got us thinking about a creative solution with our reusable bulk food bags. Made from recycled plastic, our bags have been designed to be light, compact and sturdy enough for every conceivable content! The set consists of a carry case, tote and three different sized bags – the perfect starter pack for any new eco warrior! The three bag sizes are also available individually so you can customize for your individual needs.
