One of the main things I'm asked when it comes to plastic-free essentials is what to use for freezer and food storage bags. I personally use glass/stainless steel tubs to store, freeze and travel with food but I know space and other factors have left a bit of a gap for people and these new YUGGEN reusable silicone bags are the answer I think a lot of you have been waiting for!
These are also the perfect reusable bag for taking your liquids through airport security!!
Yuggen's best selling endlessly reusable ziplock bags are amazing and I know so many of my friends and family that would use these instead of plastic bags which are used and thrown away after each use!
They are made of sand derived food grade silicone making them safe for cooking, freezing and microwaving without leaking harmful chemicals into food like plastic!
Please note: these do have a plastic zipper (they are working on changing this to another solution) but I support this product as it is not single-use plastic and will actually save a lot of plastic waste. Obviously, when they move to a plastic-free zip it will be my choice over a plastic zip but for now, supporting a UK company that have created a product to cut out single-use plastic is a massive win!

Yuggen Reusable Silicone 'Ziplock' Bag - Snack Size
There is so much I can say about why I love YUGGEN but let me first start with saying that they deliver all of their products plastic-free, as a company policy. They also dropped the stock to my unit as they are local and were passing by anyway.
PLUS they also plant a tree for EVERY PRODUCT SOLD! That's even on wholesale orders so now when you order one of these you are planting TWO trees with your order as we also plant a tree for every order placed!
Q: Are the yuggen bags heat resistant?
