Standard 11"X12" Vejibag

We've all picked through slimy spinach or pulled plastic bags from the crisper drawer that are full of limp carrots or yellowed broccoli. Vejibag prevents this type of rotting. Vejibags create a superior way to care for fresh produce. Once you become accustomed to the simple process, you'll find it's easy. Don't let your beautiful produce go to waste. Treat your vegetables as living things!

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. Plastic bags and containers keep too much moisture in; sealed plastic does not allow vegetables to breathe. This sets up an environment where ethylene gas concentrates and promotes rotting.

About the Producer
Created in 2013 by Sally Erickson, Vejibag was born out of necessity. She needed to keep veggies as fresh as possible from the time they were picked in her year-round, greenhouse until they were taken home by customers from the local co-op market. And she wanted to do that without creating plastic waste or using toxic chemicals.

After some research Sally discovered what produce managers in grocery stores have known for a long time. Moisture-loving vegetables keep best in a cool damp environment. And she discovered that our grandmothers wrapped vegetables in moistened tea towels or burlap to keep them crisp and delicious. She combined those two ideas into a handy organic cotton bag, able to eliminate the plastic and come up with a beautiful result: the Vejibag. Explore >
Storage
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.
