Reusable Snack Bags and Sandwich Wraps

This is the first part in my Ecofraglity: From Disposable to Reusables series. 
We've all bought those cheap little plastic baggies and used them thousands of times.
Which means we've thrown them away thousands of times...
So why not replace them with a super cute reusable bag?!
Sure, there are other storage containers to use that you may even have in your kitchen already.
But, to ease into a new habit without wanting back your old one is more easily done with something that is close to the same. 

Aren't these the cutest things??
I'm a big fan of cute, functional and reusable.
Not just for your kiddos, either.
You can have a stylish lunch as well. And don't worry guys, there are plenty of manly options out there.

I personally am sold on Mada's Place  on etsy.
Her bags and wraps are my favorite out of SEVERAL brands I've tried. 
In fact, I'd almost given up hope until I found her bags and wraps.
The size is perfect and the inner linings keeps your food fresh.
We've used our snack bags to hold everything from crackers to apple slices to carrot sticks.
Her sandwich wraps measure 12"x12", so it'll hold a sandwich scaled for any appetite. In fact, I usually put 2 pb&j's in one wrap when we take a picnic to the park.
I prefer the wrap to sandwich bags as it creates a nice little placemat for your lunch when it's unwrapped.
The inner lining is water- resistant, food-safe nylon making cleaning up a snap! 
Just shake the crumbs off into the trash, wipe it with a damp cloth, or toss it in the wash. 
The snack bags are 7"x6" and feature a fashion cotton print outer and a food-safe nylon inner with a strip of velcro on the top to keep it sealed until you're ready to eat!

Seriously, get rid of the toxic plastic baggies that you just throw away and upgrade your snacks and lunches with cute, cute, cute reusable bags.
You'll save money and you'll make your life and home just a little healthier.

I know I said I'd make this ecofrugality series fun!

  1. Thank you so much for the kind words and shout out! I'm thrilled you love them! <3

  2. I bought 2 bags. The peace signs and the mushrooms did it for me :)

  3. Does she sell a bag that's big enough for a sandwich, or only the wraps?

  4. No, I don't believe so.

    I have a couple of sandwich bags and I definitely prefer the wraps over the bags. Much easier to deal in many ways. my 2 cents :)

  5. Oo! I've been meaning to invest in these but couldn't bring myself to take on the challenge of finding "the best" ones. Thanks for doing the hard work for me!
