✨ Complete the Routine

Say hello to your new favorite kitchen accessory. Veggie Saver Bags are uniquely designed to keep your produce fresh, longer. Like, 2-3 weeks longer. The 100% cotton bags keep your produce hydrated while encouraging airflow and slowing ripening.

Veggie Saver Bags Quick Details:

  • Keep produce fresh longer
  • Save you money on your grocery bill by eliminating food waste
  • Save you time by cutting the number of grocery trips
  • Cut your trash by eliminating the need for plastic produce bags
  • Are machine washable and last for years
  • Work with all produce - from berries to carrots to kale
  • Are 100% vegan and plastic-free

Don't just take our word for it. A study conducted by Applied Horticulture Research in 2021 has proven that Veggie Savers keep produce fresh for 2-4 weeks longer than without. #science!

Dimensions

Each Veggie Saver Bag is approximately 15.5" W x 11" H.

Material

100% unbleached and unseeded cotton

To Use

  1. Wash your Veggie Saver. Use a cold setting and a natural laundry detergent. Washing your Veggie Saver before use fluffs up the inner fibers, making it even more effective. Hang dry.
  2. Wash your produce.
  3. Dampen the outer layer of your Veggie Saver. Put it under the faucet just enough to get the outer layer moist, then wring out as much excess water as you can. The inner layer should still be mostly dry. If you are not seeing the results you're expecting from your Veggie Saver, it is likely that the bag is too wet.
  4. Add your produce to your Veggie Saver, and store it in the crisper drawer of your fridge. You can either keep leafy greens separate from fruits and vegetables, or put them all together in one bag. You make the rules for your Veggie Saver!
  5. Keep them working hard. If your Veggie Saver feels like it's drying out, add a bit more water to the outer surface. Wash your Veggie Saver inside out every two weeks, or as needed. We recommend keeping them like hand towels - one set in use while another is in the laundry.

Veggie Saver Bags work well for root vegetables like potatoes and onions, too! Just don't wet your Veggie Saver and don't put it in the fridge. Instead, add your root veggies to a dry Veggie Saver Bag and store in your pantry. They'll last longer, too!

Packaging + End of Life

Each Veggie Saver Bag is packaged in a cardboard box. There is a cardboard info sheet inside each Bag. Care for your Veggie Saver Bag and it will last you for many years to come. Veggie Savers are made of 100% cotton, so at the end of their life they can be cut up and composted in your backyard or municipal compost.

The cardboard box and cardboard info sheet can be recycled or composted.

Origin

Veggie Saver bags are made in India by a SEDEX-certified, female-led team. They are an Australian-owned business, but the bags are distributed to us through North Carolina.

🌎 You care about the planet. So do we.

Look. I get it. It’s HARD to be an EcoWarrior. Someone who cares about the planet and wants the most sustainable products available - from the ingredients to the packaging to the way that product gets to your hands.

It seems like everywhere we turn, someone, somewhere, is greenwashing us.

But our superpower at A Drop in the Ocean is sorting through the BS, calling it out, and making sure our products are the absolute most sustainable and truly zero waste products we can find.

So on top of all the things we mentioned above about what makes our Veggie Saver Bags so sustainable, here’s a few other things you should know:

  • We’re actually practicing what we preach behind the scenes. In 2022, we saved all of our trash for four months, and wrote a whole blog post on it. The tl;dr version is this: in four months, we only produced two pounds of trash. Everything from the packaging our products come in down to the Sharpie we use to write “Fragile” on your box is zero waste to its core.
  • We’re an online-only zero waste store - which is highly intentional. It may seem counter-intuitive, but online shopping is actually more sustainable than in-person. I’m a data nerd at heart and I love diving into the research, and there are countless studies that have shown that online shopping is the most sustainable way to get your everyday essentials. Don’t believe me? Check out our whole blog post on the sustainability of online shopping.
  • We ship ugly boxes. Your order from A Drop in the Ocean is not going to arrive in a pretty, branded box. It’s gonna show up in a reused tea box, or a donated Amazon box, or maybe even an inside-out Girl Scout Cookies box. All of our shipping materials are always 100% plastic-free and reused as much as possible, with curbside-recyclable paper tape and a post-consumer recycled paper shipping label. It won’t be pretty, but it will be zero waste.

Got more questions about our zero waste products or our practices behind the scenes? Just send us an email! I’m always happy to chat all things eco.

We ship ugly boxes

Our commitment to sustainability doesn't end when you press that checkout button.

We pack all of our orders in reused boxes and envelopes, with reused paper packaging, post-consumer recycled paper labels, and even paper tape.

You may not get an IG-worthy unboxing, but you will get the most sustainable packaging we can possibly find.

Oh and did we mention our shipping is always carbon negative?

Let's go to the real winner in my eyes. Honestly, I could have purchased this exact product many other places, but the packaging A Drop in the Ocean uses to ship will have me coming back time and time gain.

My first purchase from them was some floss a while ago and it arrived in a reused tea box with a hand written note that was written on scrap paper. I was blown away.

I had never seen a company who claimed to be sustainable ACTUALLY prove to be sustainable through and through. The fact that every piece of the packaging was reused and minimal will have me come back over and over again. If I can purchase it here, I will purchase it here.

Love it!

The swag bag really works! It even keeps cilantro nice and fresh, so I don’t end up wasting what I don’t need right away. It makes it easy to keep fresh veggies handy. I love it!

A fridge with swag

These extend the life and quality of produce while keeping your refrigerator shelves cleaner and more organized. No more slimy surprises in plastic bags. You can adjust the moister of the bags to suit the food inside. Adding a bit of vinegar to the rinse cycle when you wash ensures the soap is out and seems to boost the performance. Even foods near the bags seem to benefit. Highly recommended.
