As the weather has been warming up in Australia, the fruit flies are having a field day with our biodynamic/organic fruit and vegetables that cannot be refrigerated.
My mum suggested for me to look for breathable, all natural fruit and vegetable storage bags that not only can protect against fruit flies but be re-used as well.
While conducting my search, I came across a company called Re-Sack.com
Who’s Behind Re-Sack?
An Eco Entrepreneur, Sjoerd van der Helm, from Europe came up with the idea to make sustainable fruit and vegetable shopping bags. Sjoerd said buying disposable shopping bags in the long term cost more money for the consumer.
So to avoid food wastage and to put more money back into your pocket as well as saving the environment, please give thought to Re-Sack.
Re-Sack sell organic cotton food nets and organic cotton storage bags which are able to hold nuts, seeds, beans, fruit and vegetables.
Looking for Online Eco Retailers Outside of Europe
Sjoerd and his team are looking further abroad for online eco retailers and organic food co-operatives who are willing to stock their Re-Sack product range.
I was told it would be more economical to buy in bulk by purchasing no less than 10kg/200 Re-Sack bags.
Current Stockists of Re-Sack products can be found here.
