Greener Snacking with ReUsies – Review & Giveaway!
What’s in your lunch? Maybe a sandwich, some fruit, and a plastic baggy or three? Every day, countless plastic baggies are thrown away–along with all the money spent on them. Sure, they’re convenient to use, but they’re so wasteful too. It’s too bad there isn’t a better way….oh, wait! There is!
I’m am officially giving up sandwich bags in favor of ReUsies, a reusable and much less wasteful alternative for packaging your snacks and sandwiches. They’re BPA-free, do not contain phtalates, and are safe for everyday food use. I have weird-chemicals-are-touching-my- foodaphobia, so those things are very, very important to me.
ReUsies are currently available in two sizes (snack size and sandwich size) and a whole lot of different prints. They’re 100% cotton, have a leak-resistent nylon lining, and seal with velcro closures that keep your food securely tucked away. There’s even an extra strip of velcro on the back that can be used to adjust the size of the bag. Such a handy feature!
You can use these terrific bags for just about anything. Sandwiches, chips, pretzels….any food you would normally put into a plastic baggy. I try to give my kids healthy snacks, so you’ll usually find treats like grapes or carrots in our ReUsies!
We use ours for snacking every day, but they’re especially helpful to us on our weekend outings. A lot of time is spent in the car, and the kids expect plenty of food for the ride! We can throw a bunch of ReUsies in our cooler bag and they fit much better than our bulky food storage containers.
Caring for your ReUsies is simple too. They can be washed by hand, in the dishwasher, or in the washing machine. I use mine so frequently that I find it easiest to just hand wash them. Washing them by hand is quick, and I’m sure they’ll last longer that way.
Why would I ever go back to plastic sandwich bags? These are just as convenient to use, but now I don’t have the guilt of contributing to an overflowing landfill somewhere. And if my son approves, how can it be wrong?
