How to Steam Vegetables with stasher

how to steam vegetables with stasher bag

Steaming is one of the healthiest ways to prepare vegetables. You don’t need any oil or additional fat when you cook vegetables by steaming. The water vapors gently cook the vegetables, preserving most of the nutrients within the food. Even better, when you steam vegetables with stasher, more of those nutrients and flavors are retained than if you were to steam them by traditional methods. Continue Reading →

Back to School in Eco-Style

eco-friendly school supplies

Summer is nearly over (how does it always whiz past so quickly?), and the back-to-school shopping season is here! This year, back to school spending is expected to collectively total around 83.6 billion dollars. That statistic got us thinking: What sort of an impact would it have if we made a few “swaps” for more eco-friendly school supplies as we tick items off the list this year?

How to Buy Bulk Foods with Stasher Bag

bulk food shopping with stasher bag

Shopping for food in bulk can be such an easy way to reduce your environmental impact. Of course, we mean those bins of unpackaged food at your local health food store (or, increasingly, even in chain grocery stores), not the supersized-cereal-box type of bulk.

When you choose to bring your own containers to fill up from the store’s large bins or canisters of unpackaged food, you can reduce the amount of packaging waste you make. It has a few other advantages, too: you can buy just the amount you need, which is perfect for more unusual ingredients like coconut flour or wheat berries (you know, if you’re getting adventurous). Plus, bulk food is often cheaper because you’re not paying for packaging – just for food.

If this sounds like the answer to your food waste and money saving prayers, well get ready! Below we’re walking you though the process of shopping for food in bulk with stasher.Continue Reading →

food grade silicone: what is it and why is it better than plastic?

food grade silicone

sure, plastic is convenient and easy to use, but there’s no question that it’s toxic to the environment and our bodies. every day, 20 million plastic bags go to landfill in the U.S and it takes over 500 years for each of those bags to break down. There is a solution in stasher, the world’s first and only plastic-free storage bag, which is made out of pure platinum, food grade silicone.

Plastic that doesn’t end up in a landfill often ends up in the ocean and enters the food chain which is a big concern for human health. the harsh chemicals and toxins found in plastic can lead to cancer, infertility, immune disorders and more.

fortunately, you now have a healthier option: food grade silicone is a more flexible, sustainable, and safer alternative to plastic, so it’s safe for people and the planet. unique by design, stasher is engineered to get people to rethink the plastic in their lives. no other silicone bag delivers airtight performance and self-sealing convenience.Continue Reading →
