FABRIC: Hemp is naturally stronger than cotton.

THREAD: Our organic cotton nut milk bags are sewn with organic cotton threads. Our hemp bags are sewn with very durable linen* threads. Linen is made from flax and are several times stronger than cotton.

WEAVE: The fabric I use for organic cotton nut milk bags is loosely woven, so your nut milk will have some pulp (very little). Hemp fabric is tightly woven - so there will be no pulp. Some people actually like a little pulp, while others want none. Since the organic cotton bag fabric is loosely woven It is a slightly easier to squeeze when preparing nut milk.

STRENGTH: Hemp nut milk bags are stronger. One, because the hemp fabric is stronger, and secondly, because the threads are linen* and several times stronger than cotton.

DURABILITY: Hemp tends to last longer than cotton.

BACTERIA: Hemp is claimed to be naturally resistant** to bacteria.

USES: While our organic cotton nut milk bags are great for nut milk and juicing, the hemp bags can also be used for sprouting.

MY PERSONAL PREFERENCE: I prefer hemp nut milk bag. The fabric is more rough before you use, but gets softer and softer with each use.
 

*There is currently no hemp threads on the world market.

**Please still follow the Instruction on how to wash/sanitize the bag.

Nut Milk Bag - USA grown 100% Organic Cotton, Yes! Even Sewing Threads are Organic. NO: Bleaches, Dyes, Plastics, GMOs, Glues$9.99

Our Nut Milk Bag is the only Organic Nut Milk Bag that is truly 100% COMPLETELY ORGANIC - including the sewing threads and drawstring!


BUYER BEWARE: Several other nut milk bag producers/seller claim their bags are 100% natural or organic, BUT we have found that they are still sewn with polyester threads!

If you do not want any:
-
endocrine disruptors (alters your body’s endocrine system),
-
GMOs (93% of US cotton is GMO)
- glues and other toxic chemicals in your food, then this is the bag is for you!

 

OUR TOP 5 NUT MILK BAG - DID YOU KNOWS?

1.) Got 100% Honest nut milk bag seller?

Nut milk bags sellers that claim they are made from 100% organic cotton or hemp are NOT 100% organic or hemp! - The 100% claims is only referring to the fabric, not the sewing threads or drawstring! Most (all, according to research of nut milk bags sold around the world) of the "organic" and "hemp" nut milk bags are sewn with polyester threads. Of course they do not advertise so we had to ask!

Polyester threads are fraying (falling apart) and can easily get into your nut milk and nut milk pulp. Our human body has no problems eating fraying organic cotton or hemp fibers, but we are horrified to think that petrochemical synthetic/plastic fiber can get into our food, especially with all the toxic outgassing, leaching of plastic/synthetic materials, even the BPA-free plastics have EA (estrogenic activity).

 

2.) Nut milk bag or paint strainer from a hardware store?
Almost all the plastic (nylon & polyester)
nut milk bags are basically the same (materials) as the paint strainers you can buy at any hardware store for less than $1!!!!!
Be aware that some nut milk bag sellers are really just trying to sell you a nylon paint strainer, which is most likely made in Asia with toxic chemicals.

 

3.) Got estrogenic activity?
BPA-free labeled plastics still are leaching estrogenic activity chemicals
. BPA-free labeled plastics still are leaching estrogenic activity chemicals. Mother Jones just published an excellent article that describes testing whereby Tritan "BPA-Free" plastics (which is in VITAMIX, BLENDTEC, NINJA and other "BPA-free" blenders) leach estrogenic compounds, In fact, the main ingredient, TPP (triphenyl phosphate), is even MORE estrogenic than BPA.

4.) Nut Milk cancer bag?
Nylon fiber exposure almost doubled women’s risk of breast cancer.
According to a 2010 study in the British Medical Journal Occupational and Environmental Medicine.


5.) Got glues?

Conventional fabric production uses glue in the fabric manufacturing process.
Instead of glues, organic fabric manufactures use corn or potato starch.

In addition, most sewing businesses use some type of glue to secure the garment seams (ends of threads) during the garment sewing process.

WHICH NUT MILK BAG TO CHOOSE - ORGANIC COTTON OR HEMP?

Customer often ask, “What is the difference between your organic cotton and hemp nut milk bags?” here is the link http://ecopeaceful.com/products/frequently-asked-questions/faq-products/q-what-is-the-difference-between-your-organic-cotton-and-hemp-nut-milk-bags

 

NUT MILK BAG USE/CARE INSTRUCTION - WASHING

Before First Use:

1.) Hand wash the bag with organic soap*. Rinse well.

2.) Sanitize by boiling in water for 15 minutes.

3.) Dry in well ventilated area.

Suggestion: Keep seams outside for easier straining, cleaning and faster drying.

*Not laundry or dishwashing detergent

 

After Each Use:

Washing - Thoroughly wash your nut milk bag and then dry.

Sterilizing - This is the safest option (especially if you use your bag for sprouting).

Sterilize by: 1.) boiling* or 2.) soak in pure vinegar** or 3.) saline solution** (water and salt - enough salt that it reaches saturation). Rinse well by hand in filtered or distilled water and air dry (ideally in direct sunlight)

*10-15 min. Note: Your bag may discolor over time from boiling, this is normal.

**a few hours

Full care instructions: EcoPeaceful.com/strainer-care


NUT MILK BAG CARE - DRYING

Quick drying is important. Drying is usually quick if it takes 1-2 hours, which is common if you live in a dry climate. Direct sunlight speeds up drying time. Make sure that your bag is completely dry before storage. Our organic cotton nut milk bag dries outside in just one hour. Do not use the same washing machine or clothes dryer that you use for your cloths. We recommend against these since they are not known for being completely clean and certainly not clean or safe enough for food items.

We did a side-by-side comparison of our organic nut milk bag vs a nylon nut milk bag (aka nylon paint strainer). They both dried within one hour in temperature 60 F (partially cloudy), 50% humidity.
Note: We do not recommend hanging the polyester or nylon
nut milk bags in the sun since the plastic will degrade quickly from the UV (UltraViolet) rays.

4.) Transportation - reduce transportation carbon footprint

Sprouting instructions:
Step 1. Soak sprouting seeds in water for 8-12 hours. Can be soaked in bowl of in the bag.
Step 2. Rinse seeds and place inside the sprouting bag.
Step 3. Hang[5] the bag on any hook or handles with a water catch bowl underneath.
Step 4. Continue rinsing the bag about every 12 hours. Usually sprouts are ready for harvesting in a 2-7 days.
Step 5. To make the sprouts last longer - Refrigerate in a sealed glass jar or sealed bag[6].

OVAL Hemp Nut Milk Bag / Sprouting Bag Sewn with Linen (flax) Threads! Truly all 100% Natural! NO: Bleaches, Dyes, Plastics/Synthetics, GMOs, Glues, Softeners.$11.99

This is the ONLY Hemp Nut Milk Bag that is 100% COMPLETELY and TRULY NATURAL - including the sewing threads! Our Hemp nut milk bag is sewn with very strong, undyed, unbleached linen (flax) threads. Flax is a cousin of hemp, since there is no hemp threads available on the market, linen is the next best natural option.

    I was shocked to find that Vitamix sells hemp filtration bag (aka nut milk bag) sewn with polyester threads and conveniently do not state this FACT on the label or their website (see image below)!

Vitamix-Filtration-Bag 2013-10-12

 

BUYER BEWARE: Several other bag producers/seller claim their bags are 100% natural or organic, BUT we have found that they are still sewn with polyester threads!

If you do not want any:
-
endocrine disrupters (alters your body’s endocrine system),
-
GMOs
- glues and other toxic chemicals
in your food, then this is the bag is for you!


OUR TOP 5 - DID YOU KNOW?
1.) 100% Honest?

Nut milk bags that claim they are made from 100% organic cotton or hemp are NOT 100% organic or hemp! - The 100% claims is only referring to the fabric, not the sewing threads or drawstring! Most (all, according to research of nut milk bags sold around the world) of the "organic" and "hemp" nut milk bags are sewn with polyester threads. Of course they do not advertise so we had to ask!

Polyester threads are fraying (falling apart) and can easily get into your nut milk and nut milk pulp. Our human body has no problems eating fraying organic cotton or hemp fibers, but we are horrified to think that petrochemical synthetic/plastic fiber can get into our food, especially with all the toxic outgassing, leaching of plastic/synthetic materials, even the BPA-free plastics have EA (estrogenic activity).
 

2.) Paint strainer from a hardware store?
Almost all the plastic (nylon & polyester)
nut milk bags are basically the same (materials) as the paint strainers you can buy at any hardware store for less than $1!!!!!
Be aware that some nut milk bag sellers are really just trying to sell you a nylon paint strainer, which is most likely made in Asia with toxic chemicals.
 

3.) Got estrogenic activity?
BPA-free labeled plastics still are leaching estrogenic activity chemicals
. BPA-free labeled plastics still are leaching estrogenic activity chemicals. Mother Jones just published an excellent article that describes testing whereby Tritan "BPA-Free" plastics (which is in VITAMIX, BLENDTEC, NINJA and other "BPA-free" blenders) leach estrogenic compounds, In fact, the main ingredient, TPP (triphenyl phosphate), is even MORE estrogenic than BPA.

4.) Cancer bag?
Nylon fiber exposure almost doubled women’s risk of breast cancer.
According to a 2010 study in the British Medical Journal Occupational and Environmental Medicine.


5.) Got glues?

Conventional fabric production uses glue in the fabric manufacturing process.
Instead of glues, organic fabric manufactures use corn or potato starch.

In addition, most sewing businesses use some type of glue to secure the garment seams (ends of threads) during the garment sewing process.

WHAT IS THE ECO PEACEFUL HEMP BAG MADE FROM?
Content/Materials:

Fabric - 100% Hemp
Sewing Threads - 100% Linen (flax)
Drawstring - 100% Hemp

Chlorine-free, Dye-free, Synthetic/Plastic-free, GMO-free, Softeners-free, Glue-free (No glue or wax used in fabric production, no glue (also known as ‘’seam sealant”) in seams.


FEATURES

Vegan, Reusable, Compostable, Biodegradable.


Allergy Notice:

Hemp fabric production often requires the use of corn starch or potato starch. The starch is mostly removed after just one thorough washing.


HOW DO WE MAKE ECO PEACEFUL NUT MILK BAGS?

Fabric - We source our hemp fabric from the only GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) Certified Factory in the world which produces hemp fabric. Other hemp nut milk bags are not from GOTS certified factories in China, which means they could be made using GMO corn starch or toxic glue for the hemp fabric production and many other low ethical and environmental standards .Hemp nut milk bag's fabric will naturally get softer with use and softer with each washing. This bag is tightly woven, very strong and tested for both making various types of nut milks and for sprouting.

Hemp Bag Sewing Threads - Our hemp bags are sewn with 3 thread overlock stitch, using with very durable 100% linen threads. Linen is made from flax and are several times stronger than cotton. There is currently no hemp threads on the world market.

Securing threads - The most common practice in the industry is to secure overlock stitch with a glue (seam sealant). We DO NOT use any glues, instead we secure overlock stitches by hand.

Drawstring - Our bags are purposefully designed with a thin drawstring to fit on almost any cabinet hinge or hinge screw.  Thin and strong drawstring allows it to dry fast and you can simply hang on the almost any cabinet hinge or hinge screw.

WHERE IT IS MADE?

Sewn in USA from imported materials (note: hemp is illegal to grow in USA)


WHO IS ECO PEACEFUL?

The Eco Peaceful Hemp Bag design and materials are sourced by Lena Mumma. I am an Eco-conscious and vegan mother, who gave up trying to find a nut milk bag to fit our food safety and Eco Peaceful standards.

NUT MILK BAG CARE - DRYING

Quick drying is important. Drying is usually quick if it takes 1-2 hours, which is common if you live in a dry climate. Direct sunlight speeds up drying time. Make sure that your bag is completely dry before storage. Do not use the same washing machine or clothes dryer that you use for your cloths. We recommend against these since they are not known for being completely clean and certainly not clean or safe enough for food items.

2.) Packaging - avoid thick plastic packaging (small size, non-biodegradable, non-recyclable), by reusing the same bags or use your own biodegradable bag[4]
3.) Shipping packaging - avoid increased shipping packaging (usually not eco-friendly) and/or cardboard boxes made from virgin wood sources.
4.) Transportation - reduce transportation carbon footprint

Sprouting instructions:
Step 1. Soak sprouting seeds in water for 8-12 hours. Can be soaked in bowl of in the bag.
Step 2. Rinse seeds and place inside the sprouting bag.
Step 3. Hang[5] the bag on any hook or handles with a water catch bowl underneath.
Step 4. Continue rinsing the bag about every 12 hours. Usually sprouts are ready for harvesting in a 2-7 days.
Step 5. To make the sprouts last longer - Refrigerate in a sealed glass jar or sealed bag[6].
