Keep your produce vibrant for up to two weeks!
Our Vejibags keep your vegetables fresh and crisp far longer than vegetables stored in a plastic bag, reducing food waste and saving you money! It works for loose leafy greens, heads of lettuce, kale, beets, carrots, broccoli, celery, eggplant, green beans, mushrooms and pretty much any other veggie!
While conventional plastic bags and boxes suffocate vegetables by trapping stale air and ethylene gas, our damp cotton bags keep moisture-loving vegetables alive and crisp in a high humidity, breathable environment.
Our vegetable storage bags are made from undyed, unbleached, 100% organic french terry cotton, grown by the Texas Organic Cotton Marketing Cooperative, and hand sewn by employee-owned Opportunity Threads, in Valdese, North Carolina.
Standard 11” x 12”. Great for carrots, cucumbers, peppers, baby spinach, salad greens, arugula, heads of lettuce, Asian greens.
Large 11”X17”. Great for kale, celery, zucchini, heads of lettuce and larger amounts of loose leafy greens
HOW IT WORKS
Just like cut flowers, vegetables need water to stay vibrant. The key to keeping veggies crisp is moisture. When damp, the cloth Vejibag keeps moisture-loving vegetables moist and crisp in a breathable but high humidity environment. Moisture slowly evaporates from the surface of the bag to circulate air and keep the vegetables “breathing.” The slightly moist environment of the bag keeps vegetables crisp far longer than vegetables stored in a plastic bag.
HOW TO USE A VEJIBAG
STEP 1: WET THE BAG, THEN WRING IT OUT.
Vejibags establish a moist, breathable environment for your produce. To begin, wet the bag and then wring it out so that it is just damp.
STEP 2: RINSE VEGETABLES.
Rinse your vegetables carefully, remove any damaged areas, and then gently shake off any excess water. If you're washing lettuces or greens, there's no need to spin. Let your Vejibag do the work!
STEP 3: STORE AND DAMPEN AS NECESSARY.
Store in the main compartment of your refrigerator or in a slightly opened crisper drawer. When the bag dries out after several days, re-wet slightly by running it briefly under the faucet, vegetables and all.
HOW TO CARE FRO YOUR VEJIBAG
Vejibags are machine washable and dryable. Turn Vejibags inside out and launder with fragrance free detergent. Hang in the sun to dry or machine dry, expect 10% shrinkage the first time as this is a 100% cotton bag!
If your bag gets stained you can safely remove most stains with an oxygen bleach or make your own environmentally friendly stain remover solution with 1 cup of 3% hydrogen peroxide and 2 Tablespoons of Arm and Hammer Washing Soda. Add enough hot water to the hydrogen peroxide/washing soda solution to cover bag and let sit 24 hours.
