Four food storage bags, four airtight and leak-proof sealer bars
These reusable silicone food storage bags do a lot more than the toss-out plastic ones can—like stand up. They’re airtight and leak-proof thanks to a sealing slider, and so a great choice for storing liquids like soup and sauces. The bags have a flat bottom for easy filling and can go in the microwave, oven, dishwasher, and freezer. You can even write on one with a dry erase marker.
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.
