Food waste is a big problem nowadays - around 173kg of food per person is wasted in Europe annually, which is about 20% of the whole food produced. A huge part of food wasted in private households is bread. This happens because many of us have no idea about proper storage of bread in general. Just keeping it on the shelf may not be a good idea, especially if you live alone or your family simply aren’t avid bread eaters Because of cold or excessive heat and/or moisture as well as dryness, bread may end up too dry, too moist or could get ravaged by mould.
One of the ways to keep your bread fresh for longer is using linen bread bags.They are natural means of protection and one which won’t allow your fresh bakery goods to lose taste and/or moisture, dry out. This technique is nothing new - the French have used it for ages. Bread, which is kept in a natural linen bag won’t turn soggy or tough unlike when stored in plastic one. Linen allows bread to breathe even while tightly closed. It might sound unlikely, but it does work. What is more, these bags are washable, reusable, which makes it a great plastic free alternative for single use bags. Bring one to the bakery with you!
If you were to look at our product range, you would be able to find high-quality reusable linen sacks for bread in two sizes: 20 x 30 and 30 x 40cm and in two of our signature colours - natural and unicorn. The bigger one fits a whole loaf of bread or rye bread, the smaller is for bread products or leftovers. Linen is easy to wash and thanks to ergonomic design solutions like our rounded corners, you won’t be annoyed by breadcrumbs, stuck in the corner.
All linen bread bags will be delivered to you stonewashed, which means that they are soft already and ready to be used! If you want to keep bread fresh for a long time and are looking for a natural and simple storage solution for bread – pick out our linen bread bags!
Linen product bags – not just for bread
Being just a bread bag isn’t going to cut it nowadays. Our linen bread sacks are also multi-purpose. Even though we label them as ‘bread’ bags, you can store various different products in them. It is a great alternative for single use plastic bags when shopping in bulk - buying fruit, vegetables, nuts, which aren’t pre-packed. Linen has breathable, moisture-absorbent properties which allow the vegetables, fruit or other goods to retain their most delicious natural properties while inside.
This sort of packaging is also great for picnics or trips as well. Instead of chipping into the 1.1 billion plastic bags that are used every day in the world, be smart and choose a durable linen bread bag to carry your snacks or food goodies. You can confidently roam around outside with the linen bread sack in your basket or handbag. We design them with a string for simple and quick closure.
