I make each of my daughter’s a sandwich everyday for school like so many other mama’s (and daddy’s) do. Using a typical plastic bag would mean that you are throwing away 180 bags per school year per child! Yikes!
I have used other types of sandwich wraps before, some with great success and others not so much, so I was delighted when LunchSkins sent a couple of their bags for my review*. LunchSkins helps to reduce your daily lunchprint when you use their environmentally friendly reusable sandwich bags.
LunchSkins offers various sized reusable bags to accommodate your needs. The petite reusable snack bag ($7.85) is perfect for some fruit, a few cookies (my girls like a little sweet treat with their lunches), or some cheesy crackers that I have never seen a child turn down. Jessica Alba shared: “Airlines aren’t known for their tasty or kid-friendly food options, so we pack our own. LunchSkins reusable baggies are great for snacks like raw carrots, broccoli, and a homemade almond, dried cranberry, and granola mix.”
The reusable sandwich bag ($8.95) works out nicely for my girls. I like the whole grain breads and the slices are bigger than your normal bread. Because of limited lunch time the kids only eat half a sandwich and it fits beautifully. However, I did test out a full sandwich and it fit nicely in the LunchSkins reusable sandwich bag.
I do not have a reusable big bag (sub size $10.95) but knowing it is larger than the LunchSkins reusable sandwich bag I can tell you it would fit a lot of sandwich or a days worth of those cheesy crackers (our favorite are the bunnies – yum).
Look at the pretty fabrics I was sent! Seriously, I get compliments from various teachers every Tuesday when I go help with lunches. Everyone wants to know where I got them from! Just think the amount of waste that would be saved from our landfills if everyone had a LunchSkins of their own! During the week I wipe the bag out with a clean cloth but then on Friday’s I throw them into the dishwasher. Yep, they clean up perfectly and are ready to use the next week!
LunchSkins also makes lunch totes ($15.99) and right now you can get an entire LunchSkins lunch kit for just $34.99! The lunch kit includes a Lunch Tote, a reusable sandwich bag, 2 reusable snack bags, and a LunchSkins ice mat to keep everything cool and fresh. All of the LunchSkins products are:
