Veggie Saver Produce Bag
Veggie Saver is a patented, 100% natural, non-toxic, reusable, machine-washable and compostable produce bag that helps you reduce waste, plastic pollution, and the number of trips you take to the store! Scientifically proven to keep fruit and veggies fresh for weeks.
How much food does your household waste?
Almost half of all fruit and vegetables produced globally are wasted (that’s 3.7 trillion apples) while one-third of all food produced in South Africa (a total of 10 million tonnes of edible food) is wasted every year! Whenever we throw away food, we’re not only throwing out our hard-earned cash, we’re driving up the cost of all food which literally takes food from the mouths of the hungry.
How Veggie Saver Works
Veggie Saver is a patented design made out of three different layers of 100% unbleached, unseeded cotton – each layer playing an important role in keeping your produce fresh for longer.
-The robust outer layer of your Veggie Saver protects fruit and vegetables by preserving the water within the middle layer from drying out too quickly.
-The thick, absorbent middle layer holds the bulk of the moisture. This layer draws the water away from the fresh produce, yet allows it to hydrate as needed.
-The inner layer provides a dry, protective barrier that keeps your produce from getting too wet. All three layers are permeable, allowing your fruit and veggies to breathe & stay fresh.
How to use Veggie Saver
Cold machine wash to activate the cotton fibres of all three layers and dry naturally, ideally in sunlight. Wash every 2-3 weeks or as needed.
Dampen Veggie Saver
Run your Veggie Saver briefly under the tap, then wring out excess water.
Add produce and store
Fill your Veggie Saver with fresh produce and store in the crisper section of your fridge. Sprinkle with water to maintain dampness, as needed.
