I love this bag! Very versatile and easy to clean! I just wish I had more
Thought I would use this all the time, but the size is a little awkward. Definitely love it as an alternative to plastic bags, but it's quite a bit more bulky so you need to be careful about what you store in it (ie chips are a no go, nothing delicate, etc.)
This is a great reusable bag for fruits, veggies and all kinds of snacks. It is durable, washable and I feel like I will have these bags forever!
These bags are so durable and have an amazing seal--perfect for marinating meat or tofu and all the fermentation projects I jam into my faithful little fridge. Thank you for collecting all these plastic-free products together in one place!
The benefit of buying uncured ham or meats and cheeses without a whole lot of chemicals and preservatives is better health. The downside is that these foods spoil quickly, even when sealed and put in a normal plastic bag. The seals are just too flimsy on the original packaging and on the disposable bags.
Enter the Wild Minimalist, silicone bags in hand to the rescue! Since these are designed to be permanent they have thicker walls and an outstanding sealing system. Cheese seems to last forever and the system adds at least a week to the half-life of fresh produce or uncured meats.
Initially, the cost seems high, especially if you haven't felt the thickness and durability of these bags. But if you add in the value of the unspoiled food that you retain, and calculate across the lifecycle how many disposable bags you're not contributing to landfills or the oceans, they seem very reasonable. They clean up easily and quite thoroughly with their rounded corners. And there's just the joy of holding something that's well-made and intended to last as opposed to completely discardable.
