If you like the convenience of freezing peak fruits and veggies to use down the road but don’t like the idea of using plastic bags, there is an eco-friendly alternative. Reusable silicone bags mimic the look and feel of freezer bags, but are free of harmful PVC and latex and made with zero petroleum products. They close airtight just like freezer bags, but are also safe to use in the freezer, microwave, dishwasher and even boiling water. And remember, if you do use plastic freezer bags, they are recyclable. Just place them in the same bins that accept plastic grocery bags for recycling.
