We picked up into these re-usable sandwich and snack bags from Graze Organic at the Renegade Craft Fair last month in San Francisco, and we’ve been using (and re-using) them ever since. Aside from being so cute and novel that people always comment on them when they come out, they’re made in the U.S. of 100% organic cotton. There’s not even a plastic lining, which is also good. (As a result, they’re not suitable for every food, but sandwiches, whole fruits, dried snacks and more are just fine in them.) As we’re trying to cut down on plastic, they make a fantastic alternative to plastic bags, something that’s harder to find than lunch and other sacks. We hand-wash between uses. You can also machine-wash. A set of 3 bags (sandwich/fruit/surprise or sandwich/veggie/snack) is $24. Graze also makes napkins and these cute, green totes.
Red Tricycle has a particularly wonderful list of 10 Eco-Friendly Back to School Essentials for Kids.
What are some of yours?
