You’re probably incredibly familiar with one-time use plastic bags, or as they’re colloquially known “Ziplocs,” thanks to the best-selling brand. Yet, one-time use plastic bags are swarming our landfills and 200,000 plastic bags are dumped in a landfill every hour. This means that, if our society is to move towards a more sustainable lifestyle, one-time use plastic bags are out, and reusable silicone bags are in. Keep reading for more on reusable silicone bags and their benefits compared to their unsustainable counterpart.


What are reusable silicone bags?

When they are clean and empty, you can fold or hang them to maximize space. These bags do not contain any poisonous chemicals, and thus you can feel content that you’re utilizing products that are healthy while also sustainable. The bags are entirely family-safe while being non-toxic, non-allergenic, and tasteless. You can also feel assured that your bags can be used in a wide range of temperatures.

What do the bags hold?

  The bags hold a variety of food and liquid. You can store anything that you’d typically store in a single-use plastic bag. Anything from pretzels to crackers to soups to juices to smoothies are locked into these reusable silicone bags. You can also use them for other, non-food products. For example, if you’re traveling on an airplane and need a reliable, reusable bag to hold your toiletries, a reusable silicone bag won’t allow anything to leak. Unlike single-use bags, these bags were specifically created for use again and again, which means that they’ll withstand the test of time.
