Stasher Storage Bags

Four translucent silicone Stasher bags. Two Sandwich sized, one coral, the other lemon yellow. The remain two are half-sandwich sized bags one forest green, the other peach.

Made of reusable silicone, Stasher food storage bags limit food-waste and reduce plastic. They are easy to clean (in the dishwasher) and don't leave a residual smell. Stasher bags also are more durable than a standard plastic Ziploc bag.
