Why is it worthwhile to buy a veggiebag?

Everyday vast quantities of plastic is used. This contributes significantly to the pollution and exploitation of our ecosystems. One example is the littering of our beautiful oceans with several million tons of plastic waste every year. The veggiebag is a simple  and handy solution to antagonize this development.

 

Why is a veggiebag sustainable?

 

Once produced the environmental burden of the veggiebag falls nearly to zero and the advantages increase up to no limit. Vegetables, fruit and even bread can be bought with the practical cloth bag. And not only once or twice, but as many times as one can! At the point the bag is to dirty one must not throw it away, one must only throw it into the washing machine. 

 

 

Where are the bags produced?

 

Our veggiebag are made in a certified and personally visited factory in China, which we have worked with for several years. On demand however, we can arrange the processing by a swiss institution. Please ask us for the actual prices.

Washing recommendations 

The fine-meshed recycled PET material (RPET) is washing machine approved up to 30 degrees Celsius.

However, we recommend to wash our veggiebag with 20 degrees Celsius only, which will wash the textile as effectively as it would in warm water, while saving energy.

 

The linen material tends to shrink about 5% after the first washing. We recommend hand washing in lukewarm water with neutral soap or neutral detergent. For washing machine use we recommend to wash at 20 degrees Celsius only and in any case without fabric softener.

After washing do not squeeze the linen, press softly only, then pull to shape and leave to dry on a laundry rack.
