Dans le sac's goal is to encourage people to reduce their consumption and dependence on plastic out of a concern for both the environment and their health. They believe every action counts and can even have a significant impact. The bags are now made just outside Montreal, Canada, using US grown and woven cotton canvas.
The Dans le sac bread bags are designed to transport bread home from the bakery and to store the bread at home - the traditional method of storing bread. The thick cotton fabric allows an air exchange which not only prevents the bread from growing mould but it also creates a barrier from any drafts which would dry it up. For best results the bags should be sealed as tightly as possible - simply roll over the top so that it is as tight as possible then pass the ribbon around and tie it. Bread can be frozen directly in the bag but the bag must be closed as tightly as possible.
