It is awesome to get sent free stuff in the mail, but it is especially awesome when that stuff is practical and eco-friendly.
The kind folks at Vejibag sent me their product to review and, unlike a food item I don't usually eat or will eat but not exactly want to buy again, the Vejibag was a product I'd buy.
To be honest, I had seen similar products on blogs for a while and kind of thought it was unnecessary but the bag really does make a difference in keeping vegetables fresh. I especially like to use it with herbs, which wilt so quickly before I
can think of how to use up the whole bunch.
I feel like I also put a less than fresh head of lettuce in the bag and it
came out looking even better than when I bought it. The website says the vegetables stay fresh for up to a week but I
usually use the produce before then. The bag definitely helps cut back
on wasted food that's gone bad.
The vejibag is also great
with greens you simply forget about, or even farmer's market produce
that always looks so enticing that you buy too much of (guilty as
It's also nice that it's cotton and easy to wash and I appreciate that it's made by a small *women-owned* company.
Thanks to the folks at Vejibag for the opportunity to try the bag out. I would
definitely recommend it to people who don't always have a chance to use
up their vegetables in a timely fashion. Though I got the bag for free, it retails for 16 dollars, and I think it's worth it if you consider how much money (not to mention natural resources) get wasted when we trash vegetables that have gotten slimy.
The only problem now is that I still don't know what to do with the rest of those scallions. Ideas?
