EcoLifeMate

Stand-Up Baggies

EcoLifeMate reusable food storage bags come from Maker Jay Smith, who was looking to curtail his family’s excessive plastic baggie habit. He even tried washing them out for reuse, but that was a soggy, not-so-great idea. Jay decided to make a better baggie that does the usual jobs and much more. His sturdy silicone solution is a stand-out in the kitchen. These durable flat-bottom bags stand up for easier filling and have a slider top that creates a leak-proof seal. (Storing soup in a bag? It can be done.) The bags can go in the oven, microwave, dishwasher, and freezer—heck, you can even write on one with a dry erase marker. When you think about it, Jay managed to tackle two problems. He built a versatile, functional, and eco-friendlier baggie and was able to toss out his throw-away guilt, all at once.

Quick Questions

Can these be used as freezer bags?

Yes, they're 100% airtight and leak-proof, so you can avoid freezer burn or any type of air damage to your food. You can store liquids while they're laying flat. They won't burst open with the expansion that may occur with freezing liquids. Be sure not to fill above the max fill line if freezing liquids.

What is the best way to label these bags?

The best way to label them is to write on them directly with a dry erase marker. The backside of the bags (the side without the measurements) is dedicated for this purpose.

How do you work the slider bar?

The slider bars will feel tighter during their very first use, which is normal. They slide in and out from one side only, the one with the arrow on the bag. To make this process easier on your first use, you can slide the sealer bars on and off a couple times in soapy water.
