Made of first-grade 4 oz. organic cotton muslin fabric, certified according to Global Organic Textile Standards (GOTS) for ecology & social responsibility.  Since they're made of “Green” (unprocessed) cotton they bring additional benefits to the environment and our health by avoiding the highly toxic pesticides, fertilizers and processing chemicals used in regular cotton crops.  Green cotton has a unique aroma and visual aspect to the fabric; click HERE to learn more.  Beware of cheap synthetic fabric bags. Cotton bags are natural, sustainable and biodegradable. Polyester and Nylon are made from oil, NOT natural, NOT sustainable and NOT biodegradable.

Care Instructions

Muslin Produce Bags are made of first-grade 4 oz. cotton muslin fabric and will last for many years. They are easy to care for by washing them in COLD water and flat or line drying.  They are unprocessed fabric so they may appear excessively wrinkled and shrunken after the first few washes depending on your water hardness and laundry detergent.   DON'T BE ALARMED. You can stretch them back out and reduce the wrinkles by pulling on the fabric and smoothing the wrinkles on a flat surface when the bag is wet. After stretching and smoothing, lay it flat and air dry.  Permanent shrinkage will be 7-10%.

Use Tips

Reusable Produce Bags can save 5-10 plastic bags on every trip to the market. We offer two types of produce bags because each excels at a different job.

Muslin bags are made of solid fabric. They’re extremely versatile for both shopping and storage.  The fabric allows for good air circulation while reducing light, fine for counter and pantry storage of produce.  They excel at refrigerator storage of delicate produce that easily wilts, like lettuce, chard, basil and greens.  Refrigerators dehumidify the air to prevent frost buildup. As a result unprotected produce will wilt very fast.  Spray the produce with water and place them into a muslin bag while dripping wet.  The bags will dampen and provide a moist blanket around the produce, keeping them nice and crisp for days.  If the bags begin to dry out in a few days spray the produce again.

Mesh bags are made of 1/8-inch square netting that is very stretchable and allows for easy identification of contents. They provide excellent air circulation, great for pantry storage of thick-skinned produce like potatoes and onions.  You can hang full bags on hooks by the drawstring for extra pantry space.  Mesh bags work fine for refrigerator storage of thick-skinned produce like apples, oranges and cucumbers, but we do not recommended them for storage of delicate produce that will easily wilt in a low humidity environment.
