Update to my Vejibag Experiment

Last week I introduced you to Vejibag and had the owner answer questions about herself and the products on this blog. I also did a video on my youtube channel showing the product and mentioning an experiment I was going to do to see how well Vejibag works compared to plastic and compostable bags. I used the same produce in each bag so it would be a uniform experiment.

Some follow up questions I asked of Sally Erickson, the owner, before I started my experiment that I wanted to share with you.

The Rawsome Vegan Gal comment:
I will probably try out spinach (have some I bought that are pre-washed, so do I need to wash again) and celery in one of the Vejibags.

Sally’s answer:
I have had trouble with “3Xwashed” greens…I think that is because the washing process actually damages the greens because it is done industrially….So I wouldn’t recommend using pre-washed greens unless you are sure they are in good condition, not broken or bruised from the washing process.

The Rawsome Vegan Gal question:
I never asked, can I combine more then one produce item in a bag like what I mentioned or needs to be separate?

Sally’s answer:
As long as you don’t combine fruits and vegetables…just vegetables can easily be combined, even cut vegetables…Sometimes I put a cut cucumber, a cut carrot and salad greens all in one bag…works fine.

The Rawsome Vegan Gal comment:
Also I did not wash the bags, as you said to do so before first use.

Sally’s answer:
That’s fine…there is some “sizing” in the fabric from the mill. It will wash out with just water and I don’t think it has anything toxic in it…my supplier is all about organic so I assume there’s nothing toxic in it but I can’t guarantee…But I do feel sure it washes out with water.

The Rawsome Vegan Gal question:
I wanted to start the test today, but would not get to wash laundry till Thursday (that was last week that I am referring to) can I wash by hand with some natural soap and then use it?

Sally’s answer:
Sure.

The Rawsome Vegan Gal question:
Also, does the bag have to be completely full of produce for the best results or does not matter?

Sally’s answer:
Doesn’t matter. As the bag gets less veggies in it I just fold it over.

Now it is time to see the results of the experiment.
