Discover how to save up to $1,500 on your grocery shop and keep your produce fresher for longer with the genius kitchen hack called The Swag. This reusable food storage bag system was created by Peita Pini, a busy mum who was sick and tired of throwing out soggy vegetables and old fruit and feeling guilty about it.

If you’ve ever wished your spinach would last for weeks instead of days, the Swag bag is for you. Peita’s invention allows us to keep our produce crisp and fresh for two times longer, while also potentially saving us thousands of dollars per year in fresh food waste. For the cherry on top, this food storage system also cuts down our use of disposable plastic in the kitchen, helping to address our global waste crisis.

Peita’s unique perspective on food waste sheds new light on the way we think about food, offering tips on which veggies are worth paying more for and buying organic, as well as talking us through the value of shopping seasonally.

Peita also gives an in-depth rundown on exactly how to use the Swag bag, with expert advice on how to ensure you get the best results from this life changing product.
