Pioneering solutions to plastic waste.

Weā€™re leaders in the movement to change the way people cook. Driven by our passion to support the community and the environment, we are continuously working on solutions to bring sustainable cooking into every kitchen. It should come as no surprise that one of the largest drawbacks of cooking sous vide is the creation of plastic waste. Itā€™s a challenging, industry-wide problem that we are working hard to solve.

That is why we are excited to announce that our new and improved Anova PrecisionĀ® Vacuum Sealer Bags and Rolls are 100% plastic neutral. Every time you purchase a box of Anova PrecisionĀ® Vacuum Sealer Bags and Rolls, the equivalent plastic of 32 bottles will be prevented from entering the ocean through our partnership with Plastic BankĀ®. The bags and rolls produce the same durable plastic, reliable vacuum seal youā€™re used to, but without increasing the proliferation of plastic waste.

32 plastic bottles will be prevented from entering the ocean
The Plastic Issue

The world is producing 300 million tons of plastic every year, with more than 8 million tons ending up in our ocean – the equivalent of a garbage truck of plastic being dumped into the ocean every minute. 50% of all plastic is single-use.

We want to be a part of the solution, not the problem. Since 2019, we have been working hard to reduce our overall carbon footprint. By 2022, our goal is to move to 100% recyclable packaging, have a fully recyclable or compostable plastic bag, and introduce recyclable materials into all of our products.

Solutions require partnerships. We are working alongside Plastic BankĀ® to help empower coastal communities impacted by waste. Anova is taking the step to make sure all vacuum sealer bag purchases are 100% plastic neutral. Learn more at Plastic Bank.

Bio bags in use

No nasty stuff.

FDA approved, BPA free

Eat at ease ā€“ weā€™ve ensured that all Anova PrecisionĀ® Vacuum Sealer Bags are 100% food-safe, free from harmful BPA plastics, can safely withstand multi-day cooks and boiling temperatures up to 4 hours. The only thing leaving this bag is whatever you (the culinary artist) put in.

Less waste, more chill.

Freezer safe

These bags are freezer safe up to 3 months for even longer term food storage. Vacuum sealing deprives your food of oxygen, which prevents harmful mold and bacteria from growing, which is important for long-term food storage. Which means less food waste and more dollars saved.

Itā€™s also great for meal prep. If not cooking immediately, pre-seal your food and safely store it for later use in the fridge or freezer. Then, whenever youā€™re ready, transfer straight to your sous vide pot or the Anova Precision Oven and voila ā€“ a pro-level meal at your fingertips.

The Anova Sustainability Initiative

The world is producing 300 million tons of plastic every year, with more than 8 million tons ending up in our oceans. 50% of all plastic is single-use, meaning that itā€™s used for just a few minutes but stays on the planet for hundreds of years. We often donā€™t even recognize how much plastic is around us – from the shampoo bottles we use to wash our hair to the plastic containers for our takeout food to our grocery store purchases (milk jugs, cooking oil, yogurts, bread bags, snacks, beverages – all in plastic), itā€™s nearly impossible to escape, even for the most eco-conscious of us. It should not be this hard to do better.

This includes cooking in plastic bags for sous vide. There are no eco-friendly vacuum sealer bags available on the market that can withstand high temperatures and freezing conditions while maintaining the durability and safety needed for cooking. So we started working with our partners and manufacturers to find a solution as part of Anovaā€™s Sustainability Initiative. We knew that doing so would be an essential step on our journey to becoming a more sustainable company and environmental leader.

Our new and improved bags are designed to break down faster than standard plastic when exposed to light and air in the open environment, including our forests, rivers and oceans. However, these bags will not break down faster in our current landfill conditions, where the majority will end up. Read on below for more info.

We are on a journey.

Launching our new and improved vacuum sealer bags is the best solution right now, but thereā€™s more work to be done. Since our bags require oxygen to break down, the less oxygen they have, the longer the process will take. As more trash gets added in landfills, old waste gets pushed down further into the center of the pile – getting exposed to less oxygen and sunlight. That means that even though these bags are designed to break down, they will not be able to do so in our current waste system. This is a larger, systemic issue that will take the effort of businesses, government, consumers and the community to change.

Thatā€™s why our goal is to have a fully recyclable or compostable bag available by 2022. We know that sustainable cooking is the way of the future, which is just the first step in our journey. Rest assured that weā€™ll keep you updated every step of the way.

Partnering with Plastic Bank

Solutions require partnerships.

That is why we teamed up with Plastic Bank to stop ocean plastic while improving the lives of collector communities. Plastic Bank builds ethical recycling ecosystems in coastal communities, and reprocess the materials for reintroduction into the global supply chain as Social PlasticĀ®. Collectors receive a premium for the materials they collect which helps them provide basic family necessities such as groceries, cooking fuel, school tuition, and health insurance. Plastic Bankā€™s proprietary blockchain platform secures the entire transaction and provides real-time data visualization ā€“ allowing for transparency, traceability, and rapid scalability. Plastic Bank currently operates in Haiti, Brazil, Indonesia, the Philippines, and Egypt.

Anova is taking the step to make sure all vacuum sealer bag purchases are 100% plastic neutral, meaning that for each box we sell, the equivalent amount of ocean-bound plastic is collected.
