What makes our Reusable Bread Bag so good?
Our reusable Bread Bag is made from up to 10x recycled plastic drink bottles and is designed to replace single use paper or plastic bread bags, plastic toggles and ties.
They are also perfect to use as storage for the home baker. Simply bake, allow your loaf to cool, slice and freeze in your reusable bread bag!
Our Bread Bag is big, measuring 41cm long x 27.5cm wide plus a 10cm gussett, to allow even high top loaves up to 16cm high to fit. (Please watch product videos for further information on Bread Maker loaves)
The Bread Bags have been made to Australian Bakers Industry Standards and our bag dimensions have been modelled off the size of single use plastic bags normally given out at bakeries. So they are designed to fit over most of the machines bakeries use when slicing the bread.
Due to the unique roll and clip closure, you can simply roll down the closure as the loaf is eaten to ensure maximum freshness is maintained by reducing air movement around the bread.
Bread stored in one of our bread bags can last up to 3 months in a frost free freezer and will not sustain freezer burn due to the unique double lining and airtight roll and lock closure.
To clean, you can just pull out the inner lining to dispose of any crumbs and reuse again. You don’t necessarily have to wash it every time, but if you want to, a luke warm hand wash is all that is necessary. We recommend handwashing only, as the metal buckles may get damaged or do damage to the interior of a washing machine.

Hot Tip: Most fresh bread purchased at a bakery or made at home is preservative free meaning that your loaf will likely only last 2-3 days stored on your bench top before going stale. To preserve your bread for longer it is best to freeze your bread when it is cool but fresh.
Ideally, fresh bread should never be stored in the fridge as this more moist environment can encourage bacteria to form along the surface of the bread forming mold.
Please note: The goal for our reusable bread bags is to be able help people to reduce single use plastic waste when purchasing bread from the baker, not to make bread last longer on the bench top.
Although made from recycled plastic drink bottles and technically plastic, the rPET material that makes our bags is woven in nature not solid state plastic like a single use plastic bread bag which is non-permeable for air and water.
Because of the woven nature of the fabric, a solid state plastic bag will definitely prevent air from reaching the loaf better than our bread bags will when storing your bread on the bench top, which is why we mention that bread will only really last 2-3 days on the bench top, and will likely only be suitable for toast after the first 24hrs. As mentioned above however, our bags are Freezer Proof and store your bread really well when frozen from fresh for up to 3 months without freezer burn in a frost free freezer.
Using our lunch wraps or even beeswax wraps to wrap around the end of the bread being cut helps cut down on the exposure to air for the bread, but it is important that the bag can breath too. Again fresh bread from a bakers, which are often preservative free, will only last 2-3 days on the bench top anyway. It is best to freeze sliced bread from fresh if you want your bread to last a week or two.
Our bread bags are definitely at their best when used to not only collect your bread from the baker, but also for storing your fresh bakery or home baked sliced bread in the freezer.
A note on our packaging: Our commitment to sustainability extends to our packaging which is made from post-consumer recycled material and printed with water based inks so it is suitable for both recycling or composting!
Reusable Bread Bags
When you want an environmentally friendly way to bring your bread home or to freeze your home baked bread at optimum quality, bread bags from Onya are the choice.
Single use plastic bread bags may work for bringing your fresh baked bread home but the damage the bags, along with their toggles and ties, inflict on the environment makes them a wasteful choice.
Onya’s reusable bread bags do a fantastic job of toting your bread home while also helping the environment by reducing plastic pollution and waste.
Simply better bread bags
There are many reasons why we think we have the best reusable bread bags. The main one is because we wanted to reduce the plastic waste created from bread packaging and came up with a solution for an often overlooked waste source. But what makes us the proudest is the care we used in developing them, with the goal of creating a product that looks every bit as good as it functions.
The bags are also the perfect reusable bread bags for the home baker, keeping your loaves fresh in a frost free freezer for up to 3 months due to the unique double lining and airtight roll and lock closure.
The result is a beautiful, strong, durable product that will last for many years with normal use. There are other reusable bags for bread, but we feel Onya went beyond other manufacturers when designing our reusable bread bags for Australia.
