New eco-friendly products company takes aim at the "other" plastic bag and launches reusable produce and bulk item bags

520-nm, a new eco-friendly products company, launches a line of reusable produce and bulk item bags. The bags, made of 100% recycled plastic bottles, offer consumers who want to take their commitment to reduce and reuse to another level. Initially only available online at, 520-nm bags offer an eco-conscious and fashionable alternative to the reams of flimsy plastic bags currently found in the grocer's fruit, vegetable and bulk foods aisles.

"Why stop at the plastic grocery shopping bag?" This question led to the founding of 520-nm. "It didn't make sense to me that so much focus was placed on eliminating the plastic grocery shopping bag while ignoring categories of other plastic bags," said Joling Mew, founder of the company. "Our produce and bulk item bags offer all the ease and convenience of traditional plastic produce bags yet have several added earth-friendly benefits. They are reusable and more durable."

The 520-nm reusable produce and bulk item bags come in two sizes. The large bag measures 11" x 13" and is designed to easily fit large, leafy greens, loose fruits and bulk purchases of flour, grains and nuts. The small bag measures 8" x 11" and is meant to carry a lighter load of fruits, vegetables and bulk items. A starter kit containing 3 large bags and 3 small sizes is also available and comes with a stuff sack which doubles as a bag for small quantities of garlic, shallots, and herbs.
