Not a Plastic Bag

It's amazing how many ziploc bags I go through packing lunch for me and snacks for M to go to the playground everyday. Initially, I tried washing and reusing them, but after awhile, I just gave up completely because it really became unsanitary. My unsightly problem and guilt finally compelled me to invest in reusable sandwich and snack bags.

Luckily my search for reusable bags ended with Melissa of Evelyn Fields. She makes the most adorable reusable bags from 100% unbleached cotton, which is great for keeping harmful plastics and dyes away from your food.


To help more people get on the green wagon, Melissa has graciously agreed to give our readers three of her beautiful bags. To enter, simply leave a comment with the names of the featured sandwich bags. The winner will be announced Wednesday.

le petit and blue bird!!

I hope I win these... I have been toying with the idea of getting rid of our platic bags for awhile but change comes slowly in my world... hopefully this would get me rolling. With my four kids I used 12 sandwich bags this morning between snack and lunches. It really is a waste.

Wow these are adorable!

These two are the blue bird snack bag and le petit sandwhich bag.

We do use an un-godly amount of plastic bags in our house. I know I know I hear the earth shuttering right now!

Becky said...

Reusable Blue Bird Sandwich Bag and Reusable Le Petit Snack Sandwich Bag. Could really use these.

Helene said...

Wow, what a clever idea! I used to wash the baggies out too but then they just became too gross but I feel horrible just throwing them away each time. And the prices of her bags are perfect...I probably spend more than that on the plastic baggies and then they just get thrown away. It's almost like throwing money in the garbage.

The two that you featured look lik the Reusable Le Petit Sandwich bag and the Reusable Blue Bird Sandwich Snack bag!
