A couple of weeks ago I received this super cute reusable and washable snack & sandwich bag from ReSnackIt.com.
Along with it was this nice letter from Kristin, just full of helpful and inspiring information.
Here are a few facts that make me feel good about using this product:
Did you know approximately 20 million baggies are thrown away every week in the us schools alone?
It takes 1,000 years for a plastic bag to break down and as it does toxic substance leach into soil and effects our food chain. Also an average family spends around $300.00 a year on snack packing materials.
Also in the letter is a few design samples. So many fun designs to pick from! My daughter is eying a few more she would love to use in her lunch box when returning to school this year.
Being a frugal mom who is trying her best to live more green, I am very happy to give this product two thumbs up. Since receiving this bag we have used it six times. The first five times I hand washed it. Because the inside is slick and smooth, this only took seconds. This last time after my daughter used it to take grapes to the park, I tossed it the washer. I am happy to say it came out perfect. The bag looks just as nice as when we received it.
Today my daughter filled it with tortilla chips to snack on while sitting on our porch.
She loves the fun design, I love the money that it saves us on baggies and we both love it being earth friendly. It feels great that something so easy and fun can make a difference.
