Have you been looking for another way to help out our environment? If so, you might want to check out ReUsies! These nifty snack and sandwich bags were created as an alternative to ziplock or other plastic bags that most people throw away on a daily basis.
Creators of ReUsies had this to say:
At the start of the new school year we realized that our families were going through an average of 10 plastic bags per day between school and work lunches.
We do our best to reuse and recycle in other areas of our lives, but there didn’t seem to be a solution to the plastic sandwich bags we were using.
We developed ReUsies™ for their waste-free quality, but many customers primary reason for purchasing our product was to eliminate plastic from being in direct contact with their family’s food. Whatever your reason, know you have made a good choice!
We are Seattle moms with a passion to do right by our children, and hope that the footprint we leave behind for future generations will be much smaller. We take pride in our product and we hope you enjoy them too!
I was sent one of each sandwich bag (7.5 x 6) and snack bag (6 x 5) to review and I like them!
The variety of patterns offered are great for all members of the family!
These bags were very easy to clean. Just hand, machine, or dishwash. I just had to remember not to throw them in the dryer!
The only flaw for me is that they won’t hold liquid stuff. Another is that when I toss these in my diaper bag, sometime my daughter’s cereal escapes out of the bags! I can’t imagine things like pretzels, fruit slices, or other foods getting lose in a lunch box or cooler though.
I would say if you properly are packing lunches, and have something to carry your ReUsies in that isn’t going to cause a lot of pushing and shoving around making your bag end up upside down or sideways, these are for you! I will be using them again and purchasing more in the future!
In the long run, purchasing the bags will be saving you money!
