Eco-Friendly Sandwich and Snack Bags * Review and Giveaway!

Have you ever thought about when you make a sandwich - whether it is for you or your child - how many plastic bags you truly dispose of?


We know that these plastic bags will go to the dump 99.9% of the time and not be recycled.


It is quite sad the negative environmental impact that we participate in on a daily basis.


There are wonderful ways that you can save our environment CAN begin in our daily routines.


I recently received a pair of reusable fabric sandwich and snack bags from Fresh Life Design Co.


My first reaction was "impressed."  As many of you know, I LOVE creative packaging!  Look how adorable this was:






I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!  Very cute!


Then, the bags - I loved the fabric choice - Definitely my style.


The bags are made out of 100% cotton outer fabric with a water - stain - grease resistant, food-safe,
interior lining.






I do own a couple other reusable sandwich bags, but one thing that I found in these that made them unique was the seam to seam velcro closure, versus a flap over the sandwich.  Another positive is the fact that Jonathan and I eat a whole wheat bread that has very large slices - not thick, just big.  The sandwiches fit perfect in the bag!  Loved them.


We just started a twice a week spanish class at the community college, so we have been using these the past couple of weeks when we go.  It has been perfect - and I feel good about myself that there is nothing to throw away when I'm done eating!


I love handmade and I truly loved these bags made with love by Donna at Fresh Life Design Co.


WIN!
