Green Resolutions Sponsor Spotlight Post ~SnackTAXI~

The next Sponsor Spotlight Post is for SnackTAXI! :-)

From the SnackTAXI website:

"snackTAXIs are a great alternative to plastic bags and wraps, especially when just one reusable bag has the potential to eliminate an average of 1000 plastic bags over its lifetime!
snackTAXIs are lined with coated nylon, and can be machine washed and dried, or simply wiped clean with a damp sponge.

why should i switch to reusable bags for my snacks and sandwiches?

The US alone adds 20 million plastic baggies to landfills every single day.  Every reusable bag you use has the potential to eliminate 1000's of plastic bags over its life span.  The snack-sacks and sandwich-sacks that we've sent out into the world in the last 2 years alone have kept over 7 million plastic baggies out of the waste stream.  That's 430,000 pounds of plastic!

what materials are used to make snacktaxis?

The exterior of a snackTAXI is comprised of 100% cotton, and the interior is lined with polyurethane coated nylon.
All materials are lead, phthalate and BPA free!
Material sources: the cotton we use is manufactured in Korea, the nylon is manufactured in Taiwan, and all of our products are manufactured in our rural Massachusetts workshop.
We're currently looking for a recycled nylon, and would love to hear any sourcing suggestions folks might have. We will also be introducing some organic cotton selections this year, to round out our offerings!"

I received a Organic Hatch Marks Turquoise Sandwich bag in the mail to review for this event! :-) I must confess that I've used my share of plastic baggies. Quite a few of them actually. So this helped me rethink if I ACTUALLY need to use plastic baggies. Not only do these bags help cut down on the amount of baggies going into the waste stream, but they can also save you money! You won't need to buy very many (if any) baggies in the future! :D Plus they are stylish to boot! ;-) 

My Opinion: I love saving money! I think it's one of my hobbies! :-) So when I got to review this sandwich bag I got excited about the thought of how many bags I won't have to purchase now! :-) Especially bags that are needed for my husband's lunches! Even the Sandwich bag works nicely for snacks (depending on the snack)! I sent some chips in it one day for my husbands lunch and he said it held a nice amount! These bags work great for things like chips, sandwiches, and other dry foods. They just don't carry things that are wet to well. 

Buy it: Would you like to purchase some reusable bags? Visit SnackTAXI to see all the bags they have to offer! :-)
