Snapshot: Made to Australian Bakers Industry Standards and are 100% Recyclable and Sustainable!
We Love It Because: Onya’s commitment to sustainability extends to their packaging which is made from post-consumer recycled material and printed with water based inks so it is suitable for both recycling or composting.
In 2004, the founder Jon Brousson, was in search for a meaningful, environmental change that can make a difference in reducing the prevalence of single use plastic. He created his first reusable shopping bag that quickly invoked interest with friends, family and even strangers during his shopping trips. His humble beginnings have seen the company grow to offer reusable shopping bags, produce bags, backpacks and coffee cups and one of the highest quality stainless steel drink bottle ranges on the Australian market. Onya’s products are 100% recyclable and made out of recycled material such as rPET, a fabric produced from recycled plastic water bottles. Being a B Corp certified company, their products are verified to be responsibly made, both ethically and sustainably, in China. Onya is 100% Australian owned and designed.
Onya Reusable Bread Bags are designed to replace single use paper or plastic bread bags. Measuring 44cm long x 26cm wide opening / 17.3in long x 10.2in wide opening, 10cm/3.9in gusset, to allow even high top loaves up to 16cm/6.2in high to fit. Made with a pull through inner lining for easy cleaning and double lined to help lock in freshness. They are freezer proof due to the unique double lining that helps prevent freezer burn. Roll and clip closure also acts as a handle when shopping to make your bread bag a breeze to transport.
Unlike the plastic bags, the woven nature of the fabric will not prevent air from reaching the loaf when storing your bread on the bench top, which is why a bread without preservatives will remain fresh for 2-3 days only on the bench top, and will likely only be suitable for toast after the first 24hrs. However Onya Bread Bags, as mentioned, are Freezer Proof and store your bread really well when frozen from fresh for up to 3 months without freezer burn in a frost free freezer. To preserve your bread for longer it is best to freeze your bread when it is cool but fresh.
They come with a 12 month Manufacturers Warranty.
BPA-free food-safe PET material (recycled plastic drink bottles,rPET).
How To Use It
Pull out the inner lining to dispose of any crumbs and reuse again. It is not necessary to wash it every time, but if you want to, use a luke warm water and hand wash it. Handwashing recommended as the metal buckles may get damaged or do damage to the interior of a washing machine.
