Whenever I go anywhere with Brayden I like to pack him some snacks which usually end up in a plastic bag. I recently discovered reusable snack/sandwich bags and knew I just had to try them! I found a company that has been making reusable bags/products since 2003 called snackTAXI. They sent me a sandwich-sack and I couldn't wait to try it! We used it as soon as it arrived.
I invented the first snackTAXI way back in 2003 as a way to stem the tide of plastic ziplock bags that flowed from our house to the landfill when our 3 kids started school! We were packing over 500 lunches every year, and had definitely fallen prey to the easy appeal of the ziplock baggie. snackTAXIs are easy too - really! They are made in our rural Massachusetts workshop by talented (and fun!) local sewers - we are committed to keeping our business local, and will never outsource our labor. The US alone adds 20 million plastic baggies to landfills every single day. Every reusable bag you use has the potential to eliminate 1000's of plastic bags over its life span. The snack-sacks and sandwich-sacks that we've sent out into the world in the last 2 years alone have kept over 7 million plastic baggies out of the waste stream. That's 430,000 pounds of plastic!
About the sandwich-sack:
The exterior of a snackTAXI is comprised of 100% cotton, and the interior is lined with polyurethane coated nylon. All materials are lead, phthalate and BPA free! They have a TON of different prints to choose from, which is way more fun for your child than just a regular plastic bag. They even have bags that say "nut free" and "gluten free" on them so your kid's teachers are reminded/aware of their allergies. I love that! It's anything goes when it comes to washing your snackTAXIs. They can be machine washed (they recommend unscented detergent) and dried in the dryer, or simply rinsed with water and air dried. How easy!
What we thought:
The sandwich-sack is great! The velcro is easy for little hands to open and just reach into. It's a pretty deep pocket to fit a sandwich or plenty of snacks. I like to pack goldfish crackers or trail mix in the bag for Brayden's diaper bag. They are very well sewn and durable. I've cleaned it a few times. It was very easy to do. The price is also really great at only $8.95 per bag. We love this product! I would suggest these to anyone!
SnackTAXI also makes the snack-sack, twice-as-nice napkin, bulk/produce bag, bread-sack, any-day apron, eating utensils and much more! You can find them on Facebook and Twitter!
Brayden absolutely loves the print on his hedgehog sandwich-sack.
