I have been fortunate to review products from two companies. Both are environmentally aware of the unnecessary waste in our day-to-day routine and both companies have taken strides toward the reduction of the plastic baggie.
I have chosen to review both companies in one post since I have been using both of their designs for reusable bags simultaneously. Both companies offer a fantastic product; I recommend them both.
Wrap-N-Mat, a family owned business since 1997, offers a reusable food wrap and placemat in one. The original wrap is 13″ x 13″. It holds flat foods like sandwiches or crackers or cookies. When open, it lays completely flat in an octagon shape. The wrap is folded around the sandwich and then fastened with a Velcro like closure. Since it opens completely flat, it serves as a placemat. This also makes it super easy to clean. There just won’t be any crumbs in the corner! I wipe clean with a damp cloth or hand wash when needed.
The mini pouch is 5″ x 6″ and holds more bulky foods like chips and fruit. It is used the same as the original wrap. I used the mini pouch to keep my lettuce and tomato separate from my sandwich to avoid a soggy lunch. The fabric for both is lined with LPDE food safe plastic that keeps food fresh by keeping the air out. They offer many prints making them attractive for all ages. I wouldn’t have chosen this particular fabric but my son rather enjoyed it since it’s not our typical style. I have been using both of these daily and they have proven to be very convenient. I love having zero waste lunches!
Snack Taxi, another family company, makes its reusable bags from their home-based workshop in Massachusetts. Local sewers create a stylish bag for snacks and sandwiches. They offer plenty of fabric choices for your bag or for a bag that you give as a gift.
The sandwich sack is 7.5″ x 6″. It is an envelope style sack in that the sandwich goes into the bag and the flap then folds over it with a Velcro closure. Easy to slide a sandwich into. It wipes out easy; I do invert it to get the smallest of crumbs out of the corners. I wipe it clean with a cloth and hand wash when needed but it can also be machine washed. The exterior is 100%cotton and the interior is lined with polyurethane coated nylon. The sandwich sack is a daily must at our house. It is a wise choice for food transportation; a wise choice for the planet.
I received the original wrap and the mini snack pouch from Wrap-N-Mat in exchange for an honest review. No other compensation was received. I received the sandwich sack from Snack Taxi in exchange for an honest review. No other compensation was received.
