As you may know I am trying to eliminate plastic from my life. I do it for lots of reasons, but the most important is to reduce my families exposure to petro chemicals. My second most important reason is I hate throwing away up to 8 plastic baggies from my family of 6 per day. That's allot of waste! So when Lunch Skins offered to let me review several of their products I was thrilled!
Never heard of Lunch Skins? They are a company that came up with an idea who's time was long over due. Namely, making re-usable sub-sized, sandwich, and snack bags. But they didn't stop there, they also designed them to be fashionable, durable, affordable, and dishwasher safe.
Ok so that is pretty awesome right? Here is some more info about the company:
While sitting around a kitchen table in 2008, we heard a staggering statistic - every day, more than 20 million sandwich bags from school lunches go into landfills in the US. We knew that many families were looking for easy, convenient ways to be green and avoid this kind of waste. So we put our passion and energy together and 3greenmoms was born. Our mission:to design a colorful, fresh alternative to the plastic baggie.
Whether you care about our environment, saving money, eating healthy, or looking stylish, LunchSkins are the answer to your plastic baggie blues -- they offer an environmental benefit (reduce landfill waste), a practical benefit (they can be used hundreds of times and save you money over the long run), and a healthy choice (food tastes better in a pastry bag). Welcome to our family!
As soon as I received my lunchskins my kids fell in love due to the cool colors and patterns. I agree with them completely that lunch skins are really adorable. They are very well made as well. When I tried to open the Velcro that keeps them closed it was really tough so I know they will stay sealed and not spill. This was something I was especially interested in since keeping the bag closed is so important. I still can't quite believe that you can put them through the dishwasher but you can! I love that I can just pop them in when I empty out lunch boxes and then the next morning they will be squeaky clean. The prices for these are very affordable as well which is a huge plus. This is especially true when you look at how much money you will save over a year of not having to buy sandwich or snack bags.
I heartily recommend this product for everyone! To me it is the perfect pairing of saving money, making our families healthier, and doing something good for the environment!
