Handmade pouches work great for bulk dry goods

Bulk-dry good sacks constructed from bandanas

At the Ashland Food Co-op, my handmade pouches work great for purchasing bulk dry goods. I got the idea from unbleached muslin sacks that are sold at the co-op.

Ever since my family decided to purchase rice by bulk instead of in prepackaged boxes, I wanted an alternative to filling disposable plastic bags from the bins.

I repurposed additional sacks from bandannas and crocheted drawstrings from newspaper-bundling twine. Each pouch has the tare weight embroidered on it.

Combine these handmade dry-goods pouches with handmade grocery sacks and our shopping trips at the co-op are occasions for living the value of sustainability.
