It is fantastic when someone comes up with a solution for household problems that is also environmentally friendly.
Since buying organic fruits and veggies it frustrates me even more when they end up unconsumed and rotten in the fridge. Because, let’s face it, not all of us have kids (and partners) who love their veggies. Although I have a worm farm, I still don’t like throwing food out.
That’s why I was glad to find out about The Swag.
The Swag solution:
The Swag is a non-toxic, environmentally-friendly, sustainable, machine washable, breathable bag. It helps your fruit and veggies stay fresher for much longer naturally.
It has three layers: the outer later which protects and hydrates but is breathable, the middle which holds most of the water and keeps moisture away from the produce, and the inner layer which protects the veggies from the moisture in the middle layer. The Swag is made of unseeded, unbleached cotton materials.
All you need to do is dampen the Swag with water, wring out, place the fresh veggies and fruits inside and into the crisper section of the fridge. Sprinkle the Swag with water when it gets dry. For more instructions you can check out the how-to on their site.
No plastic bags. No food waste. Non toxic.
