Eco-friendly lino-block greens bags

23 Oct

Say goodbye to yucky lettuce!

I’m always looking for more ways to live sustainably and to make my fresh produce last longer in our short Edmonton growing season. I came across this idea in a great book i was reading called “Grow Great Grub“.

What are they? How do they work? They are cotton bags that are made for storing your greens in your fridge. Unlike plastic, the cotton can let air in and out, which keeps your greens crisper for longer!I used a hemp string to make a drawstring closure, so you can tighten up the bag if you wish.

I dressed up the bags a bit with my own design. I created a hand carved lino-block print of lettuce greens. After I’m done sewing, I stamp the bags. They are handmade and each bag is different.

Remove your lettuce from it’s plastic bag (if it’s in one). Wash your lettuce, shake excess water off and place in the cloth bag and put in the fridge until ready for use. It’s that easy!

They are now for sale in my Etsy store. Click here to find my listing.
