Why we love it

Produce and water are like Romeo and Juliet. They're probably pining for each other right now, and if you keep them apart too long, well, we all know how that ends. Made from machine-washable, organic cotton, each Vejibag is reusable and breathable, providing moisture without promoting rot. Available in 3 sizes, all you have to do is dampen a bag to give your veggie story a happy (and delicious) ending.

How it does good

A little bag with a big impact

Almost 270 species have been affected by plastic pollution, primarily from single-use bags. What’s more, Americans toss 40 million tons of food each year, a whole bunch of it produce that went bad in the fridge or on the counter. Vejibag is out to extend the shelf life of fruits and veggies (meaning less waste), and, by cutting out single-use plastic, it's extending the life of our planet. Created by Sally Erickson as an eco-friendly, freshness solution for her local co-op, the Vejibag went from a living room project to a community endeavor to the star of a sustainable business. Free from dyes and other chemicals, the organic cotton used in their bags is fully traceable and hand-sewn at worker-owned Opportunity Threads in North Carolina.

  • responsible sourcing

    In addition to sourcing fully traceable cotton from the Texas Organic Cotton Marketing Cooperative, Vejibag partners with Opportunity Threads, a zero-waste sewing facility which hires primarily Mayan immigrants and offers all employees ownership opportunities.
  • supporting key causes

    Vejibag has built giving back right into their model, donating more than 10% of profits to the Maya Education Fund, a scholarship aiding the continued education of Central American students, with a focus on women and girls. They have plans to increase their donations as their business expands.
  • low carbon footprint

    By keeping produce fresh for longer, they limit food waste, which means less need for garbage collection and less need for environmentally-taxing farming practices to keep up with a volume that isn't used.

How to use it

To use, run the bag under water, wring it out, and add rinsed veggies. Once the bag dries out, run it under water again without removing the contents.

When you're done...

Eventually, once your bag wears out, it's home compostable.

These are general guidelines for broadly-recyclable materials. Check with your local recycler to confirm what they take.

About the Brand

Vejibag

Vejibag

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, Eastport, Maine 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.
