Following on last week’s sandwich theme, enter these durable and reusable, eco-friendly fabric sandwich and snack bags. The creation of a team of mompreneurs (3greenmoms), these Velcro-secured pouches with fun patterns are a smart replacement for the ubiquitous “plastic sandwich baggie”; and, given they can be used hundreds of times, a better alternative for both the planet and your wallet. The bags are thoroughly tested for toxins and independently certified free of BPA, phthalates and lead. So, after enjoying whatever morsel you decide to stash, you can sleep at night not worrying about automatically populating the next landfill (nearly 400 billion plastic bags are used in the U.S. every year according to the EPA and only 1-3% of plastic bags in the U.S. end up being recycled). The high-quality fabric and polyurethane liner used is certified as food safe (a food-grade pastry fabric) and durable; it withstands high heat and repeated cycles in the dishwasher. This means cleaning the bags are also convenient. Different sizes allow for sandwiches or snacks – but the patterns are so fun for both adults and kids and adults alike, why stop there? Good for ice, pacifiers, cosmetics; the list can go on. Parent-Tested Parent-Approved™ media winner.
