Do you use plastic ziplock baggies on a regular basis? Think you can’t live without them? I sadly admit that I still use plastic ziplock bags fairly often even though I know they are terrible I have been looking for an alternative for a while so I was excited when I got 2 lunchskins reusable snack bags from my mighty nest subscription.
Plastic Ziplock Bags
Here are a few reasons that ziplocks are bad.
- Plastic is toxic!
- They are not reusable in the long term.
- Constantly throwing away ziplock bags pollutes the environment and fills up the landfills.
- Its not cost effective. You will continue to spend money buying plastic ziplock bags.
Lunchskins Reusable Snack Bags
I used them for
- Taking snacks to work.
- Sending snacks to school.
- Cheerios or other dry snacks for car trips.
These are dishwasher safe and were fine when I put them through the dishwasher, but since I usually use it for dry snacks i just shake out the crumbs and use it a few times before washing thoroughly.
Investing in Reusable Solutions
I haven’t tried any other brands. At $4 – $6 each lunchskins brand are a bit pricey. But if money is no issue, then I would say these are high quality and worth the investment.
One of the things on my to do list is to make my own reusable snack bags.
Here is one of many tutorials. Think of all the fun possibilities! You can create any color or size. These would also make great gifts. So long as you buy food grade non-toxic material then you are easily on your way to ditching some toxins from your life and saving money at the same time.
