Looking for  Eco friendly (reusable)  bread storage bags.

Any insights helpful.

Have you considered purchasing a bread box? If that takes up too much space for you, you could try cloth bags or or even just a large piece of heavy, tight-weave cloth to wrap around it. I mostly just leave my bread on a cutting board, cut side down, but I live in a different climate.

agree with recommendation for the bees wrap, have been using about about a year now and they have sheets large enough for big loaves and long ones for baguettes, allows the bread to breathe but not dry out and fully reusable

incidentally also great for storing cheese as well

We use this 

http://www.amazon.ca/Progressive-International-Adjustable-Bread-Keeper/dp/B001BB2LMM/ref=sr_1_2/189-7235153-4385623?ie=UTF8&qid=1409799081&sr=8-2&keyw...

 

The things we really like about them are the adjustable size and humidity control.. If it doesn't fit this, it goes in a linen cloth or paper bag. We also use hemp cloth for couches and storage, which I bought from http://www.rawganique.com/HAfabric.htm

Hemp is naturally resistant to mold and mildew.

From Breadtopia 

Very spacious for holding a variety of baked goods. Easy to access bread.  Easy to clean.  Top of box provides a shelf on which to store small items.
