Bags actually do a lot of the heavy-lifting in the food world. But, they are taken for granted and never given a second thought.
They are used in all aspects from growing to transporting to storage to cooking. We use bags to sell seed in, bags to grow food in, bags to transport food to markets, bags for grocery shopping, bags to package food and bags to freeze it, bags as actual cooking tools, bags to transport meals, bags to serve in and bags to eat out of. And, we use bags to hold our food waste.
There are bags to hold food in them from all temperatures, from boiling hot to freezing cold. Some bags are meant for single use, some can be reused a few times, and others are reusable without set limits. They can be made of cloth, paper, metal or plastic.
And recently, the types of food bags we use have become a major environmental concern.
