We are so pleased to stock The Swag Produce Bag.  If you buy your fruit & veg without plastic wrapping, then this is their new best friend to keep them fresher for longer in the fridge.

A natural, sustainable fresh produce bag made out of non-toxic, unbleached cotton, the Long Swag Produce Bag is great for fitting all sizes of fruit & veg in. Simply pop your vegetables and fruit inside and put in the fridge. The Swag Produce Bag will ensure they stay fresher for much longer.

The Swag produce Bag is reusable, zero-waste and machine-washable. Made of 3 layers of natural, sustainable cotton, the cotton has been unseeded which makes it non-allergenic (lab-tested) as well as being non-toxic and unbleached.

Say ‘goodbye’ to plastic and ‘hello’ to natural freshness. Save money, food waste and help to reduce plastic packaging.

 

How The Swag Produce Bag works


The Swag Produce Bag is made out of three different and unique layers of 100% natural cotton.  These three layers play an important role in keeping your fresh produce fresher for much longer. They help your food breathe while locking in moisture, keeping your fruit & veggies in good condition. There’s also a layer separating the moisture from the produce which stops them getting soggy. The Swag Produce Bag's shape makes it the perfect size for storing longer foods too like celery or leeks.

 

Because the Swag Produce Bag has been made from cotton, you can wash it easily. This allows you to keep on reusing them - unlike single-use plastic bags. Not only is it great for storing produce, it’s also really helpful in organising your fridge or cupboards - making it so much easier to find your stuff.

 

Dimensions: 52cm x height 38cm (opened up and including flap height), 52cm x 24cm (not including the flap)

 

How to use your Swag


Machine wash your Swag Produce Bag before use. Dampen the Swag Bag under the tap and wring out excess water. Pack fruit, veggies and leafy greens into your Swag and place in your lower fridge draw or on a shelf in the fridge. BOOM! TWO weeks or more of freshness on average.

Every two-three weeks, turn inside out, empty crumbs and cold machine wash preferably with a plant-based washing powder. Allow to dry naturally.

Then repeat!

 

How to Care for your Swag


Machine wash your Swag Produce Bag at 30°c BEFORE USE. This makes the inner layer plump up and work much better. Then wash as needed or a least once every two weeks. When washing, turn your Swag inside-out and wash in a cold or warm wash up to 30°c. If you use an incredibly hot wash then shrinkage may occur.

For the very best results, whilst still wet, pour some white vinegar (no-frills) over your Swag and run on a rinse cycle. This removes soap residue and is a natural sanitiser. Whilst inside-out, line dry in the sun if possible. The sun is a natural bleacher and sanitiser.

 

If you care properly for your Swag Produce Bag, it will last you years and years. However, if you’ve gone on a holiday, forgot and left rotting produce in your Swag, then turn it inside-out and wash it. Then whilst still wet, pour a cup of white wine vinegar over the stains in your Swag and put it through an extra rinse cycle. Whilst still inside-out dry in full sun.

 

If you’ve accidentally left your fresh produce in The Swag unattended for a really long time, to the point of mould, I would recommend to stop using them and compost them as mould spores are difficult to kill and can be toxic. If the mould is slight and dealt with quickly. You can simply apply clove oil or tea tree concentrate to the affected areas, dry in full sun, machine wash and do a vinegar rinse (as above) and The Swag should be fine to continue using. Also, make sure you wipe out your fridge using vinegar.
