Fresco : le sac de conservation de légumes

Fresco: the vegetable storage bag


Fresco the vegetable storage bag

Food is worth gold. We don't always realize it because we may take it for granted here, but that's not the case. You might as well take good care of it!

I don’t know about you but I’m literally allergic to food waste in my home! This becomes a challenge when we do not have regular access to fresh foods or even during the winter months which do not give us access to such fresh vegetables!

We saw in a previous article that the figures on food waste are staggering and we mentioned in another article some tips and tricks to avoid this waste .

Here, we present to you in more depth the Fresco, a vegetable storage bag that we created and which has changed the way we manage our vegetables here.

A vegetable storage bag created entirely here

Fresco made in Quebec

I am very proud to tell you that I created this bag by promoting the local economy. Besides the fact that we don't have any raw materials for textiles here, everything else is made here. Even the organic cotton fabric and labels!

Why does the storage bag work?

When we pick or buy a vegetable, it continues its life. While living, it continues to breathe and exchange moisture with the environment.

Since we wet the bag, the humidity and composition of the bag create a cool environment allowing plants to breathe. Unlike plastic bags and containers, this 100% natural fiber vegetable storage bag allows the elimination of ethylene, the gas responsible for rotting, as well as humidity control.

With which vegetables is it effective?

The variety is very great! Lettuce, even cut, will be crunchy for up to two weeks! Carrots, celery, broccoli, cauliflower, cucumbers, kale and many more! The only vegetable that doesn't work, and it's a very finicky one, is coriander!

The Fresco, vegetable storage bag is very easy to use and very effective. The only thing to remember is to keep it moist at all times !

Here are the steps of use:

1. We wash the vegetables

2. Let them drain

3. We can cut them or not

4. Wet the bag and twist it

5. We put the vegetables in

6. Hop in the fridge


IMPORTANT : After a few days, your bag will slowly dry out. It is important to moisten it again. To do this, open it, put water in it with the vegetables and stir it so that the water goes on the fabric of the bag and that's it.

Ces sacs sont incroyables ! J’y ai laissé des poivrons tout un mois et ils étaient encore très beaux. Je peux maintenant profiter des spéciaux sur les légumes sans craindre de les perdre. C’est fantastique.
Merci pour cette belle invention.


Ce sac est littéralement extra-ordinaire! Je l’ai testé avec la laitue et le choux-fleur jusqu’à présent et j’adore la fraîcheur qui dure! Merci et merci :)

il n’est pas obligatoire de mettre les sacs dans les bacs. Toutefois, si votre réfrigérateur est très froid, cela peut être souhaitable car ils peuvent geler :)
Au plaisir!
