Shop Story

Whether you’re packing lunches, packing for vacation, or loading up your bag for a quick errand run, you’re likely bringing snacks if your kids are coming along. Plastic sandwich bags are a must-have for families, but they are not exactly eco-friendly, especially at the rate parents go through them. Since we are already using reusable straws and water bottles, making a choice to use reusable sandwich bags should be a no-brainer. 

 

We love reusable sandwich bags, and many companies have started making them in different sizes, prints, and designs that are perfect for kids and families.

Plus, they aren’t just useful for packing snacks. Reusable sandwich bags are great for packing toiletries on vacation or keeping your purse or diaper bag organized. The options are limitless, and once you make the switch to reusable ones, you’ll feel good about your choice in more ways than one. Single-use plastic is becoming a thing of the past, and using reusable sandwich bags is a great way to teach kids about the environment and how to keep it safe. 

 

Reusable sandwich bags are often made with cloth or silicone, which makes them easy to clean — either by hand or in the dishwasher or washing machine — and easy to heat up or keep cold. They also come in sets so you can get the most bang for your buck. It’s really a win-win.
