Just when you've gotten used to the reusable shopping totes - and even remember to bring them to the grocery - there's a new level of going green.

Replace those thin plastic produce bags with these reusable mesh drawstring ones. Almost weightless and see-through so the produce code can be read, these nylon bags are machine washable.

Three bags, two 13-by-11 inches, and one 18-by-14 inches, $7.50, from Belief Beyond Bags, at www.3bbags.com.
