You know that we are switching to greener solutions for our plastic consumption around the house. There are two simple rules that we follow in order to choose a product to use in the kitchen, especially when it comes in contact with foods: non-toxic materials and reusable.
We really wish that we would have all the time to cook enough fresh food each and everyday, but it is just impossible in our busy life these days. Food storage, especially freezer storage become a problem in our kitchen, as we don’t have enough space in our fridge and freezer for all of the reusable containers. But what if you also want to avoid single use Ziplock bags, freezer bags?
We found the solution and are excited to share with you another product that has become our favourite things in the kitchen: Silicone Food Storage Bags – A reusable alternative to plastic zip lock style bags
Why Plastic Food Storage is a Problem
Plastic is a problem for a number of different reasons. Made from finite and polluting fossil fuels, it uses vast amounts of energy to produce and causes huge greenhouse gas emissions. It causes a problem from its raw materials right through to the end of its useful life – and far beyond. When plastic is thrown away, it remains as a problem in the environment for many years to come.
Plastic food storage containers are not only a problem for our planet. They can also sometimes pose a risk to human health. Plastics containing Bisphenol A (BPA) are believed to carry a range of health risks. Some plastics can also degrade when microwaved and release harmful chemicals into your food, while others, when scratched or damaged, may harbour harmful bacteria. Silicone food storage containers are a far better solution.
Why Choose Silicone Food Storage?
Made of the same material as the baby pacifier, non-toxic, and odorless. In line with the German and American food contact standard, LFGB and FDA approved. It means the silicone product does not contain any filler, coating, BPA, BPS, BPF, PVC, or any the chemicals which can be dangerous to your health and cause environment damage like plastic storage bags.

The slider bar with the direction instructions on the bar and on the bag to help open and close the bag at ease. Each silicone storage bag has an expandable base for easy packing and cleaning. The measured information on the bag with cup, ml and fl oz make it easy to portion the contents of each bag. And what more, you can label and organize the contents of each bag in your fridge, freezer or closet with large write-on labels, using dry eraser marker.
Single-use plastic bags are only used for an average of 12 minutes and then takes 500 years to degrade in a landfill. Meanwhile, our silicone bags could last decades of continual use and reuse as they are made of study and extremely durable silicone material.
They are pricey though, its like an investment compare to using ziplock or freezer bags but its worth it in the long run.
