WASTE NOT, WANT NOT
Ziploc bags and similar single use plastic bags for sandwiches and snacks have become the American norm, but it’s time to replace them with something that’s healthier for you and the planet. After all, these things never biodegrade and can contain hormone-disrupting chemicals!
The good news is that there are a lot more options for reusable snack bags out there, on sites like RePac, Lunchskins, ChicoBag, Etsy, or Amazon, then you might think. And they come in a ton of colorful colors and patterns. However, not all of them are made from FDA approved food-grade materials and most of them are solid which means you’ve got to open them back up if you’ve forgotten what’s inside.
Thankfully, xo(eco) offers one of my favorite solutions; clear, zipped bags that can hold wet or dry snacks. They even donate a small portion of their sales to ocean research and conservation. So, you can buy a 6-pack, stock them up with fresh fruit or veggies, raw nuts, veggie burgers, and such and easily keep track of what’s in each one. They’re even machine washable (although I prefer washing them by hand.)
Buy some for work or car rides, for your kids (or someone else’s) and before you know it you’ll be wondering how any of us (myself included at one time) ever got in the habit of relying on single use sandwich bags.
Other on-the-go snack containers include:
small, reused glass jars (like a salsa jar)
stainless steel containers
reusable bags made from industrialized hemp
