Created in 2013 by Sally Erickson, Vejibag was born out of necessity. She needed to keep veggies as fresh as possible from the time they were picked in her year-round, Eastport, Maine greenhouse until they were taken home by customers from the local co-op market. And she wanted to do that without creating plastic waste or using toxic chemicals.
After some research, Sally discovered what produce managers in grocery stores have known for a long time. Moisture-loving vegetables keep best in a cool damp environment. And she discovered that our grandmothers wrapped vegetables in moistened tea towels or burlap to keep them crisp and delicious. She combined those two ideas into a handy organic cotton bag, was able to eliminate the plastic and come up with a beautiful result: the Vejibag.
Vejibags have always been made with the finest US grown and milled organic cotton french terry knit. They are sewn at a worker-owned facility in Valdese, NC, and as always they are free from dyes or chemicals. Everything about Vejibag was, and remains, good.Details:
