Squirrel Food Bag
Can I put my Squirrel bag in the freezer?
Absolutely, Squirrel bags are a freezer’s best friend! Use your bag to freeze leftover meals, or chopped up fruit & vegetables ready to blitz into a tasty smoothie. Squirrel bags are made from 100% platinum food grade silicone and can withstand extreme temperatures. For best results release any air from the bag before freezing to avoid crystals and freezer burn.
Will the bag melt if I put it in the oven?

How do I steam vegetables in my bag?
Place the vegetables in your Squirrel bag and release any air from the bag, then re-seal the bag. Gently lower into a pan of hot water where they will bubble away until tender. This is one of our favourite ways to cook vegetables, as they retain all their nutrients – delicious!

WHAT I’M MADE OF
100% Platinum Food Grade Silicone!
Lets think about sand. Almost every kind of sand contains silica, which is a form of silicon – the second most abundant element on earth! Silicon, oxygen, and other elements (usually carbon and hydrogen) then form silicone, a polymer that has a wide variety of properties.
Silicone is not plastic!
Reusable Squirrel bags are made from food grade silicone, they are non toxic and made without petroleum based chemicals, BPA, BPS, or fillers. They are highly resistant to damage and degradation from extreme temperatures, allowing them to withstand heating and freezing without leaching hazardous chemicals – unlike plastics, which contaminate food in these environments. Squirrel bags are a safer alternative to plastic and much better for human health and the planet.
They are highly durable and can be used thousands of times without degrading or falling apart in anyway. One reusable Squirrel bag can reduce the use of at least 500 plastic bags.
Silicone is not toxic to aquatic or soil organisms, it is not hazardous waste, and while not biodegradable, unlike plastic it does not break down into hundreds of tiny pieces. It can be recycled at select locations after a lifetime of use.
Sadly, plastic that doesn’t end up in landfill often ends up in the ocean. As a consequence toxic plastics are entering our food chain causing concern for animals and human health. Food grade silicone is a safe and sustainable alternative to single use plastic.
