Single-use plastic bags ruin the environment. They serve just one purpose and are supposed to discarded within minutes. If not properly disposed of, they fill dumpsites, end up in our rivers and oceans, where they cause massive havoc. As a dad to three beautiful babies, I worry that there may be no blue ocean or sandy beaches for my kids to enjoy. There is a need for an alternative to these problematic bags.I found this innovative, multipurpose, reusable, silicone-based food storage gallon bag solves this challenge.
The gallon bag is made from 100 percent plastic-free silicone. I found out that the bags are odourless, flavourless, and made from the highest standard of platinum cured silicone during my usage. The bag is designed with the right functionality and extra features to reduce wastage and is coming from a startup committed to creating reusable household helpers and other consumer products. The bags are also made using the most energy-efficient techniques to minimize wastage and to reduce cost. These bags allow families, like mine, to safely store, cook and transport food while at the same time protecting the environment.
The gallon bags can withstand temperatures up to 450 degrees. I used them for making them pot roasts, sous vide, griddling, and baking. I cannot say the same for vinyl or fabric bags. When cooking meats, the bag can be double-sealed, put on a placeholder in the oven, allowing you to get juicy meats every time. No more loss of flavours or get dry beef.The gallon bag is microwave safe, dishwasher safe, oven strong and, fridge friendly. They are also straightforward to clean and last longer than vinyl or fabric bags.
My wife used one of the bags to store her makeup and creams to prevent them from spilling onto her clothes in her suitcase when travelling.I have used the bag to seal my phone and camera to protect them from spillages and sand at the beach.

I used the bag to store an opened pack of chips for longer.I gave one of the bags to a friend who worked in a restaurant kitchen loved the bag so much that he recommended replacing the Ziplock backs at his work with the Gallon bag.
I was really impressed that the bag can be used in a microwave and be cleaned in a dishwasher, something I could never do with their old fabric bags.
I also loved the bags for the multiple usage functionality compared to plastic bags.I mustcomment on the sealing process.t it was the easiest I have ever had to use.
