Here at The Keeper, we've got not shortage of items to use in the kitchen to make your home more eco-friendly and sustainable. From our revolutionary diamond weave bags to our wax wraps, it's never been easier to have a plastic-free kitchen!
Diamond Drawstring Bags
Our diamond weave material is a revolutionary weave of organic cotton. The lightest 100% cotton weave in the world, our diamond bags replace single use plastic or paper bags and also nylon or recycled PET bags on the market.
Our diamond weave is the lightest organic cotton shopping bag on the market and can fit easily into your handbag. They hold up to 2.5 kgs of fruit or veggies and can store fresh food up to 10 days in the crisper of your fridge or in the fruit bowl.
They can be hung up to store more delicate soft fruits and prevent bruising and the lightweight diamond weave fabric and the beautiful voile backing allows for stretch in both directions.
Perfect to use in bulk sections when buying grains, nuts and other bulk food items, they are soft with an easy drawstring closure.
The Keeper muslin bags come in packs of 3, and you can mix sizes! Our muslin is a very serviceable fabric and is extremely versatile for both shopping and kitchen storage.
The fabric allows for good air circulation while reducing light, making them perfect for room and pantry storage of produce. They excel in refrigerator storage, keeping fresh, herbs, carrots, cut pumpkin, corn, zucchini, cauliflower, broccoli, brussel sprouts.
They're also perfect for carrying bread, grains and nuts. Other uses include taking them camping, using them to carry children's toys, shoes, and even as travel bags.
The tight weave of our muslin bags means they are also perfect for buying and storing finer products like flours, grains, seeds and nut meals.
Wax Round Wraps
Say goodbye to single use plastic wrap! The Keeper waxed round wraps have been designed for use on a range of bowl sizes or to seal the end of cut fruits.
To use simply wrap over a bowl, selecting from the right size from the 4 different sizes available in the set. Press the sides onto the bowl, the warmth from your hands will helps soften and seal the wrap.
To use on cut fruit, you can use a natural rubber band or string to help hold it in place over the end you are sealing. It will become stiffer in the fridge or freezer but this will not affect its efficiency.
To clean simply rinse with cold or with tepid water. Hot water will melt the wax so avoid using hot water to clean. A little natural detergent and cold water can be used for greasy stains. Make sure to air dry open after washing, before next use.
Take your durable and lightweight mesh bags with you when you grocery shopping. The mesh construction on these bags provides excellent air circulation to the produce inside. The mesh stretches both ways, allowing plenty of space for your produce.
You can hang garlic, ginger, tomatoes lemons, avocados and other skinned produce on hooks by the drawstring in area that is not too hot in your kitchen exposing all of the contents to open air, reducing spoilage and bruising.
You can also use them to store your fruits in the fruit bowl or in the fridge.
In the refrigerator, you can store peaches, pears, apples, oranges, zucchini, squash, cucumbers, carrots, as well as most thick-skinned items. Perfect to replace plastic bags!
Nut Milk Bag
If you love making your own milk, then these little bags will really come in handy. Our nut milk bag has been carefully designed to filter not only home made nut, rice or oat milks but also to be used to make or filter other nourishing foods like yoghurt, cheese or kombucha.
After making your milk, place your nut milk bag in a large jar and pour the puree into the bag. Pull closed and gently squeeze your home made milk into the jar. Keep in the fridge for up to a week. Another great substitute for single use items in the kitchen.
Our potato bag is one part of our pantry trio, we also have onion and garlic bags!
These natural fabrics restrict the light reaching your potatoes, preventing deterioration while allowing a little fresh air to flow and keep your potatoes from rotting. Natural wooden toggles are an attractive feature adding vibrance to the kitchen if you choose to keep the bag on display.
This bag has been successfully tested to keep your spuds fresh for longer.
Waxed Lunch Bag
Another great alternative to single use food wraps like glad-wrap or foil, our wax lunch bags have been tested to be as effective as a plastic wrap or a sealed lunchbox for keeping your sandwich fresh.
To use simply make your lunch and pop your sandwich, sushi, crackers, wrap, rolls, croissants, pastries or other baked goods straight in. Fold the bag over to seal itself. You can pop it in a cool bag with an ice brick or simply toss it in your bag, the stiff wax will help to protect your sanga!
Those are our best items to keep your kitchen plastic free and sustainable. Every bag is multi-use too, so you really can't go wrong with a kitchen drawer full of any of these goodies.
