Large Vejibag



Made in Pittsboro, NC

Product Details

This adorable Vejibag vegetable crisper also serves as a preservation bag. It creates a humid and breathable environment for vegetables. How cool is that?

When damp, the bag wicks away excess moisture while keeping vegetables well-hydrated and fresh for up to 2 weeks (or more). It is the perfect companion for your garden harvest or your recent farmer’s market trip. Keep your healthy goods fresher longer.

Vejibags have always been made with the finest US-grown and milled organic cotton french terry knit. They are sewn at a worker-owned facility in Morganton, NC, and as always, they are free from dyes or chemicals. Everything about Vejibag was, and remains, good.

Size: Large (17×11)

Use & Care


Vejibags create a superior way to care for fresh produce. Veggies need humidity and cool temperatures like cut flowers to stay vibrant and alive. Once you become accustomed to the simple process, you’ll find it’s easy. Don’t let your beautiful produce go to waste. Treat your vegetables as living things! 

Large Vejibag is excellent for storing kale, celery, zucchini, leafy lettuce heads, or more significant amounts of loose leafy greens.



Wet and Wring.png

Vejibags establish a moist, breathable environment for your produce. First, wet the bag and wring it out so it is damp.



Rinse and Shake.png

Rinse your vegetables carefully, remove damaged areas, and gently shake off any excess water. If you’re washing lettuces or greens, there’s no need to spin. Let your Vejibag do the work!




Store and Enjoy.png


Store in the refrigerator’s main compartment or a slightly opened crisper drawer. When the bag dries out after several days, re-wet slightly by running it briefly under the faucet, vegetables and all.





Turn Vejibags inside out, and machine wash with fragrance-free detergent. Hang in the sun to dry or machine dry; expect 10% shrinkage the first time as this is a 100% cotton bag!

If your bag gets stained, you can safely remove most stains with oxygen bleach or make your own environmentally friendly stain remover solution with 1 cup of 3% hydrogen peroxide and 2 Tablespoons of Arm and Hammer Washing Soda. Add enough hot water to the hydrogen peroxide/washing soda solution to cover the bag and let sit for 24 hours.

About the Founder

Sally Erickson created Vejibag out of necessity in 2013. Sally needed to keep veggies as fresh as possible when harvested from her year-round Eastport, Maine greenhouse until customers took them home from the local co-op market. And she wanted to do that without creating plastic waste or using toxic chemicals. So while conventional plastic bags and boxes suffocate vegetables by trapping stale air and ethylene gas, our wet cotton bag keeps moisture-loving vegetables alive and crisp in high humidity, breathable environment. Our vegetable storage bags use 100% organic french terry cotton, grown by the Texas Organic Cotton Marketing Cooperative, and hand-sewn by employee-owned Opportunity Threads, in Morganton, North Carolina.

About the Company

The Vejibag is now a top seller in eco-conscious and zero-waste shops across the US.

About the Founder

The story started with the founder, Nandeet Mehta, who grew up in a small farming town a few hours outside Los Angeles. Growing up in and around agriculture, he realized that the innovations in organic agriculture weren’t translating to products we find on shelves. While we’ve been eating organic produce for decades and pampering our dogs with organic shampoo, when it comes to heavy-duty homecare, the products we see are still stuck in the ’60s.

EXO is excited to develop products that leverage emerging biomimetic technology with family & pet-safe, plant-powered ingredients. Their all-natural formulas are bottled in eco-aerosols that are sustainable, recyclable, and don’t release harmful VOCs instead are pressurized by air.

Even more, they’re combatting the issues of chemical insecticidal resistance. Their products are third-party tested to work on 100+ species and be effective on chemically-resistant species while having no known resistance.
