What are graze™ bags made of?
graze™ bags are made of 100% certified organic cotton. There is no plastic lining, just pure organic fabric. The illustrations are each hand silk-screened with water based inks rather than conventional plastisol inks.
Where are graze™ bags & napkins manufactured?
All of our graze™ products are made in the USA in California.
Each bag & napkin is silk-screened and sewn by small, family-owned operations. Because we live in southern California, we are able to frequent their shops on a regular basis. We have the peace of mind knowing that our manufactures are “sweat shop free” and use fair labor and fair wages. Because of this, we pay a higher price. But, we think it’s worth it!
How do I care for graze™ bags?
Our graze™ bags must be washed before first use. For the first wash, we recommend machine-wash (warm or cold water) and heated dryer. After the first wash, use the same method or prolong the life of graze™ bags by using a hand-wash & line dry (and save a little electricity, too!). For best results, turn bags inside out (to get all bits of food) before washing.
Should I expect shrinkage?
Yes. We have purposely made our bags slightly larger to accommodate for shrinkage. The shrinkage is minimal. Expect approximately a 5-10% reduction in overall size.
How do I use graze™ bags?
graze™ bags are meant to be an alternative to plastic bags.
Use them in lunches, snacks on the go, in your purse or diaper bag. When they get dirty simply throw them in the washer, not in the trash.
We realize that some foods may not be ideal for graze™ bags– it’s not an all or nothing experience. If something is extra gooey or wet, we recommend that you wrap the item in unbleached wax paper (which is landfill free) and then place in a graze™ bag. There are hundreds of foods and items which work perfectly with graze™ bags. Using graze™ bags can save millions of plastic bags from being used and discarded.
Why should I switch from plastic bags to graze™ bags?
Hundreds of thousands of marine life die every year from eating discarded plastic in our oceans. Millions of bags are discarded and added to landfills everyday. Did you know that plastic does not biodegrade? It breaks up into smaller, toxic pieces that contaminate our soil and waterways. And, it’s not just a problem for the environment. Some plastics may contain hormone disruptors or other harmful chemicals that can leach into your food.
Why should I switch from paper napkins to graze™ napkins?
Millions of paper napkins are discarded and added to landfills every day. Our napkins can be washed and used over and over again. Saving a lot of trees!
