The outer layer of The Swag protects fruit & veggies from the dry cold air in refrigerators while allowing fresh air to move in and through the bag. This layer also helps remove excess ethylene* gas that gets trapped by plastic bags, all this helps slow down the ripening process and helps your fruit and vegetables stay fresh.
The thicker middle layer, when wet, absorbs and holds water. It also helps to draw moisture away from the fresh produce in your Swag. As air passes through the middle layer it draws out the moisture needed by your fruits and vegetables. This ensures that exactly the right amount of moisture is available – too much moisture and your fruit and veggies will spoil quicker.
The very inner layer provides a dry barrier between your fruit and vegetables and the moisture contained in the bag. It allows your fruit & veggies to draw on air and water as they need it, while drawing out any excess water and helping to absorb and remove excess ethylene gasses.
*Ethylene is a naturally occurring plant hormone that helps fruit and vegetables ripen, too much ethylene makes your fruit and vegetables ‘over-ripen’ causing them to spoil quicker – plastic bags trap ethylene causing your produce to go bad whereas The Swag helps regulate the amount of ethylene that comes into contact with your fresh produce, keeping it fresher for longer!
We all hate throwing food away. We work hard to buy the best produce we can at the best prices possible, only for it to spoil and end up in the trash.
The Swag gives you that extra time to use what you buy – saving you money (and time) shopping. The best part – your fruits and vegetables don’t just last longer, they stay at their best for longer.
More people are choosing to buy organic fruit and vegetables – they not only cost more but tend to spoil faster because they are pesticide, GMO and wax free. The Swag makes that choice more cost effective by giving you more time to use what you buy.
