A simple fabric bread bag can help your real loaf of bread last longer, by preventing mould (it also keeps that fresh bread aroma for longer). Most bread in supermarkets is sold in plastic which just makes the bread sweat. You can recycle all food packaging (not clingfilm) at supermarket bag bins.
Keep pet-toxic bread baking ingredients (fresh dough, salt, dried fruits, onions/chives or chocolate) away from pets.
See how to help garden birds on why it’s not good to feed too much leftover bread to birds. Never give them stale, mouldy, crusty bread nor anything with fat (grease, buttered leftovers) as it clogs feathers, affecting waterproofing/insulation.
Bric Organic Cotton Bread Bag is designed and hand-printed with eco-friendly water-based inks. The large bag has a drawstring cord to pull closed, making it easy to use. And the thickness of the cotton helps to keep fresh, but allows your loaf to breathe. For each bag sold, £1 is donated towards planting a tree.
Green Tulip Baguette Bag is made in Québec (from naturally grown US cotton). It feature a cotton tape strap to keep 2 baguettes secure. Wash on cool delicate cycle with biodegradable detergent. Lay flat to dry (do not tumble dry or use fabric conditioner, expect shrinkage).
Other options are Eddingtons Ceramic Bread Keeper (rinse in warm water, dab dry and place in the bread bin). Or Reusable Bread Wrap with plant-based waxes/resins lasts up to a year then biodegrades (flammable, keep away from ovens/flames, do not use to wrap hot/warm food).
