Product Review: Vejibag!
Exclamation point is added for emphasis of awesomeness. The super cool folks over at Vejibag recently sent me one of their reusable cotton produce storage bags!
You know how plastic bags are terrible for the environment and wasteful to boot? Well, they also make your produce rot faster because they keep moisture in, but don’t allow veggies to breathe. Solution: organic cotton produce bags! You simply rinse your produce and put it in the dampened Vejibag. The damp cotton keeps a nice humid environment for the veggies, but it’s porous so it doesn’t keep them so wet that they get slimy. Fan-freaking-tastic. Also, it’s super cute.
And when they get dirty, like mine is, you can just throw them in the washing machine. At just $16 (or just $10 for the smaller size) a pop, they’re a steal. Or get the three pack, save a few bucks, and have more room for happy produce! This thing totally works, too. I admit that when I first put half a zucchini and some cilantro into this kind of heavy, damp bag, I was a little skeptical. I thought no way this thing wasn’t going to rot the heck out of them, but after forgetting about them for a few days, I checked back in and all was well! I think the bag works especially well for delicate produce, like scallions and herbs. My herbs usually get super sad within a day or so, but not inside the Vejibag! Totally stellar.
Oh, hey, also…their company seems super rad. Like, I want to be friends with whoever wrote the copy for their website. They’re all about sustainability, domestic labor, biodiversity, and more! Really, go check out their site and read around a little, and then support this new company by buying a bag or three! The lifespan of your veggies will be extended and you’ll be supporting all sorts of awesome things in the process.
Thanks a lot, Vejibag peoples, and good luck with your startup!
