I love to eat sandwiches...LOVE! As in, I have a sandwich for lunch almost daily. When we are out and about, on the boat, going to the zoo, in the car, whatever, I love that I can just make my sandwich, throw it in a baggie and take it with me. What I HATE is that my germ free sandwich goes into a baggie for a very short period of time, and then I eat the sandwich and throw the bag away. What a waste! Did you know the average person spends about $300 a year on snack packaging? Did you also know that it takes 1,000 years for a plastic bag to break down? If you are like me and hate being wasteful and want to leave a better impression on our Earth, here is a product for you!
I want to send out a big Thank You to Kelly at ReSnackIt for giving me the opportunity to test out one of their reusable snack bags. The concept of these is relatively new to me, but I was excited to try these out.
Live and Dream Green is the company behind this awesome product! Here is some information I received from them on how ReSnackIt came to be.
Kristin Webster, a former 7th grade health teacher in CT, is a stay-at-home mom to her two children, Olivia and Andrew. Her idea to start a company selling earth friendly products to help busy moms came to her one day when she was busy preparing her kids’ school lunches. She was running out of plastic baggies and that there had to be a better way. She knew those bags didn’t decompose and leeched chemicals into the soil, just growing the amount of trash we, as inhabitants of this earth, produce. That launched the birth of ReSnackIt®, a reusable & washable sandwich and snack baggie. Her products are free of: Lead, BPA, PVC, Phthalates, and is CPSIA Approved. The inside of her bags are constructed with undyed, vinyl- free nylon, backed by a coating that does not come in contact with food, allowing them to be moisture resistant, wipe-able, machine wash safe, so that you can use them again and again. Kristin created the sandwich and snack bags, and then added several new products to her line, including the ReSnackIt® Wrap, ReSnackIt® Hoagie and Double-Pouch ReSnackIt®
ReSnackIt® reusable sandwich bags and reusable snack bags are a modern day, better alternative for a plastic baggie. The idea is to encourage “earth-friendliness” with a reusable bag for food, where kids and adults want to carry it. Who says you can't have fun and flair while still being earth conscience?
The wonderful thing about ReSnackIt® sandwich and snack bags is that they are reusable. Either the crumbs can be shaken out, the inside wiped down, or ReSnackIt® can be thrown in the dishwasher or washing machine. Also, there are many fabrics to choose from and ReSnackit® is always adding new fabrics. ReSnackIt® products are proudly made in the US and contain NO lead, phthalates, vinyl or BPA.a Rafflecopter giveaway
