Natural Cotton Delays Produce Decay

Breathable cotton fabric allows ethylene gas to escape, while plastic bags trap this gas.  This gas is what causes the accelerated rotting of fruits and vegetables.  Cotton bags will protect your produce while protecting our planet.  Our produce bags are the ultimate in Eco-friendliness, being NATURAL, SUSTAINABLE, ORGANIC, BIODEGRADABLE, COMPOSTABLE, REUSABLE, RECYCLABLE, and ZERO WASTE.

Say NO to Plastic!

Produce Storage in Muslin Bags

Muslin fabric helps keep produce crisp and fresh. Just spray delicate greens and put them into the bag while WET. The fabric dampens and becomes a moisture containter (similar to wet paper towels) that protects refrigerated greens such as lettuce, spinach, chard, kale, basil, parsley, cilantro, herbs, and green beans from dehydration and wilting.

Produce to store in DRY muslin bags include avocados, mushrooms, broccoli, cauliflower, and brussel sprouts. These bags perform similar to a brown paper bag for accelerating ripening.  Put green avocados in a muslin bag with a high ethylene producing fruit, like bananas, and place it in a sunny spot to speed up ripening.

Produce Storage in Mesh Bags

The 1/8-inch netting provides excellent air circulation to the produce inside. Hanging these bags on hooks by the drawstring in a cool, dark place exposes all of the contents to open air, reducing spoilage of produce like potatoes, onions, garlic, and tomatoes. Do NOT store onions and potatoes in the same bag, as the onions will cause the potatoes to rot.

In the refrigerator, you can store peaches, pears, apples, oranges, zucchini, squash, cucumbers, carrots, as well as with most thick-skinned items in either mesh or muslin bags.

Bulk Shopping with Muslin Bags

Medium, Small, and X-Small muslin bags are perfect for zero waste bulk bin shopping.  Write the bin number on the bag with a washable marker for easy checkout.  Once home transfer the items to glass mason jars or similar container for airtight storage.

X-Large, Large, and Medium muslin bags are great for larger bulk items, including bagels, rolls, muffins, and loaves of bread. Another easy way to eliminate packaging waste while shopping!
