Every day another sandwich …and another sandwich bag. In fact, more than 20 million sandwich bags from school lunches go into landfills in the U.S. every day! While I’m all for reducing, reusing and recycling, it gets a bit dicey when you’re trying to cram a sandwich into your kid’s lunchbox sans bag and it’s hard to reuse a bag that’s been covered in peanut butter. Luckily the folks behind Lunchskins sandwich, snack, and sub bags felt the same way and crafted a simple, yet ingenious alternative to disposable bags.
Lunchskins are reusable sandwich bags that come in a variety of sizes and are easy to clean and re-use. Buy it once and they last years making them a sound investment. Hand-sewn in the U.S. of A out of food-safe fabric Lunchskins are immensely better for the environment than use-and-toss plastic baggies. They are lead-free, bpa-free and phthalate-free and with the purchase of certain styles they donate a portion of proceeds to environmental charities. Find a baggie that does that! Plus, they are also a lot cuter, and with styles as diverse as crabs, polka dots, apples, and flowers there is something for every taste.
I was lucky enough to receive a free sample for review and after just one use I went and bought three more. They are just so darn useful, plus we eat a lot of sandwiches. Plus, when you do the math, it’s a no-brainer. For the cost of two boxes of plastic bags, you get a multi-use, multi-purpose reusable bag that can last for years. What’s not to love?
Lunchskins are available online at lunchskins.com. Sandwich bags go for $8.95, snack bags for $7.95, and sub bags $10.95.
