    CARE INFO

    String Bag and Produce bags:

    Machine wash cold and hang dry

    Beeswax wraps: 

    Wash in cold water with eco-friendly dish soap. Biodegradable, alcohol-free soap is the best. Tree resin and beeswax are soluble in alcohol. Check the ingredient list of your dish soap. If alcohol is in the first 5 ingredients it is too harsh for this wrap.

    Not suitable for the dishwasher, microwave oven, direct heat or high temperatures. Allow food to cool slightly before covering and avoid placing hot food directly

    Do not let them soak for a prolonged period of time.

    Hang to dry or towel dry for immediate use. Do not wring.

    YOUR IMPACT

    A trillion single-use plastic bags are used each year, coming to almost 2 million bags each minute. A one-time purchase of these reusable bags will save years and years of waste that you produce due to single-use grocery produce bags. 

    TIPS AND INSIGHTS

    Produce bags:

    Fabric is breathable and can be moistened to keep greens fresh longer in the fridge.

    Store a set of these bags inside a reusable grocery bag and hang by the door or in the garage or keep it in your car, so you don't forget to take these when grocery shopping. If you do forget, resist the temptation to grab the plastic bags that the store provides and go bag-less. Place all produce directly in the cart and give them a good wash before storing them.

    You can reduce waste by composting the bags when it is time to dispose it. The material is 100% compostable - it may take some time, but it will decompose. You can speed the process by giving more points of contact i.e rip it to shreds and then compost. Since it has no harmful dyes, bleach or colors, it is safe to compost as well. 

    Always consider reusing before disposing - you can repurpose these bags to store shoes when traveling, use it to pack small items like socks, underwear in your suitcase, or to store all phone/iPad chargers and extension cords.

    Beeswax Wrap:

    It is 100% compostable. Outer package is a paper box that is 100% recyclable and compostable.
