Too many plastic sandwich baggies floating around your house? There are at ours! Talker man loves to have his Cheerios/snacks in plastic bags over cereal bowls because it's easier for him to keep them contained and not all over the floor! Through my internet perusing, I found snackTaxi.com, a great site for reusable baggies! These are washable, dryable, and most importantly, reusable! I was ecstatic when I was permitted to review these for you! When we got the package in the mail Talker Man could hardly contain himself. We got a small one with "cir-tels" (ovals) and a larger one in a beautiful flower print. He quickly assessed the situation and decided the little one with circles (ovals) was his and that the flowery one was mine. After making his decision he asked me to put some cereal in there for him so he could try it out. It's his new favorite thing! He loves having his own special bag for snacks and keeps track of where it is amazingly well (whereas with the plastic bags, he would just say, "I don't know where it went, me just get a new one.").
The snackTaxi's are fabric outters with PUL inners, which keeps them waterproof and messy sandwiches don't stand a chance of getting all over your lunch pail! We've only used ours for dry goods so far, cereal and marshmallows, and have just rinsed them out. We haven't had to do an all out washing machine wash, but I love that that's a possibility! We're going to be looking into getting more of these as budget allows!
snackTaxi's were invented by a mom, Erin, who explains more on the snackTaxi website:
"I invented snackTAXIs way back in 2003 as a way to stem the tide of plastic ziplock bags that flowed from our house to the landfill when our 3 kids started school! We pack over 500 lunches every year, and had definitely fallen prey to the easy appeal of the ziplock bag.
snackTAXIs are easy too- really! They are made in our home-based workshop by talented (and fun!) local sewers- we are committed to keeping our business local, and will never outsource our labor."
I LOVE supporting WAHM's, much more so than big businesses. I feel that they truly care about the quality that they put out, they have their name behind their products and that is important to me. I urge you to go check out snackTaxi's for yourself, there are so many options!!
