Grocery shopping is a hassle especially when it comes with the heavy baggage of several plastic bags — poison to the environment. Rarely does the chore end with you keeping all the bags in the fridge. The vegetables need to be separated and placed in different compartments to keep them fresh.
Here, we have the perfect cotton grocery bag for you that keeps your green grocery sorted and fresh for a long time.
How do you prolong the shelf life of vegetables?
Some vegetables, like tomatoes, can last up to a week if placed in the right temperature. Others, like curry leaves, dry and wither in that time. It is also important to understand that vegetables suffocate in plastic bags, which shortens their life. Storing them in a breathable fabric like cotton can keep them fresh for longer.
Also, some fruits and veggies give off gases which can cause others to ripen and rot more quickly. It is better to store them in different compartments to maintain their freshness.
