Did you know that the average American household throws away 25% of the produce they purchase? Not only is this wasteful and bad for the environment, but over the course of a year this can add up to hundreds of dollars spent on food you will never eat.
Leafy greens especially need to be placed in bags to protect them from the harsh atmosphere in your fridge- otherwise they can wilt almost immediately!
We use compostable bags for some of the loose items in your bins, and are starting to bag all leafy items to make sure they stay delicious for you.
Also, we cannot recommend enough these Produce Storage Bags. We use them and they really work. They can extend the shelf-life of produce by weeks. And without preservatives or anything.
