Bread - Storage - with Linen and Cinnamon

Organic bread is best bought daily from a place that stores it in an airy, dry place on untreated wood. It can be tossed directly into a washable cloth bag (no packaging necessary), thrown into the bike or backpack. In the household it is best to place it in a washable pure-linen bag. In summer it is slightly moistened and then it is placed tied up into a large pot. Quality bread stays fresh that way for a long time.

In the fast-life, industrial bread has to travel long carbon-belching distances. Freed out of its plastic bag, it is quickly befallen by black bread mold. A new paper has been developed that is coated in cinnamon essential oil and solid wax paraffin which it is said should enhance anti fungal activity.
Maybe, one could add a cinnamon stick to one's bread bag/container?

You must make sure that the cinnamon used is real innamon and not cassia.

The cinnamon sold in the US is actually cassia. Cassia has a chemical called coumarin whiich could be toxic.
