The Lao Market Eco-Friendly Mesh Net Bag the perfect zero-waste produce bag for the farmer's market or grocery store. It is remarkably lightweight and compact and stretches to gently cradle your fruits and vegetables. 
Lao Market Bags are made using JungleVine® Fiber, Earth friendly because of its carbon-negative (net zero) impact. The fiber comes from a vine (Pueraria phaseoloides) that is a self-renewing resource. Like all plants, it converts carbon dioxide to oxygen, but unlike all plants, it also fixes nitrogen from the air and improves the soil where it grows, healing the soil on damaged sites and creating an ecosystem ideal for the return of insects and birds to once-desolate sites. Khmu artisans who harvest the vine to make bags never over-harvest, allowing the vines to regrow, which they do rapidly. The vine grows without cultivation, irrigation, or chemicals which makes it far superior to cotton tote bags.

Lao Market Bags now have larger, more comfortable handles made using a back-strap loom. These bags are stretchy, strong, and durable. You'll want to take one with you everywhere you go.
