~CLOSED~ Review & Giveaway: ReSnackIt™ Reusable snack and sandwich bags

Live and Dream Green LLC was founded by a Mom who dreams of a greener world and believes being environmentally friendly does not mean sacrificing convenience and style.

After running out of plastic sandwich/snack bags for her kids’ school lunch one day, she knew there had to be a better way… then was born “ReSnackIt™”.

With her 2 children Olivia and Andrew, along with her supportive husband, she was inspired to find a better alternative for a plastic baggie.

The idea is to encourage “earth-friendliness” with a bag that is cool, where kids and adults want to carry it. Who says you can’t have fun and flair while still being earth conscience?

Product Information & FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

Are ReSnackIt’s™ just used for “dry” foods, or can they also store snacks like apples and cucumbers?•

Yes! Whatever you would put into a plastic baggie you can put into ReSnackIt™. The inside of our bags are constructed with undyed, vinyl- free nylon, backed by a coating that does not come in contact with food, allowing them to be moisture resistant and wipe-able so that you can use them again and again.

What materials are used in making ReSnackIts™?•

The outside of ReSnackIt™ is 100% cotton. The inside (lining) is a non-dyed nylon that is lead free, phthalate free, BPA free and PVC (vinyl) free. The trim around is 100%cotton, making it more durable and it completes the over all look of the baggie. Velcro® keeps ReSnackIt™ closed, and is positioned so it can accomodate different sizes of sandwiches/snacks.

Will ReSnackIts™ keep my food fresh?•

ReSnackIt™ keeps sandwiches and snacks fresh because of a coating on the underside of the lining (away from the food) which allows contents to retain moisture — no dried out bread! The fold over design and Velcro® on the front of the bag keeps contents and freshness inside. Plus, the design allows little fingers to open ReSnackIt™ and hold it with ease. ReSnackIt™ is perfect for your “on the go” eats!

Why should I use ReSnackIt™?•

Plastic bags take over 1000 years to photodegrade (not biodegrade). As they do toxic substances are released, leach into soil and enter our food chain. Plastic bags will be around for centuries contaminating our earth.

My Review
We're all trying to do our part to be more "green" these days, aren't we? That's why I was very happy to try a ReSnackIt™ bag, to replace disposable sandwich/snack bags. I work part-time at an office and pack my lunch most of the time. I used my ReSnackIt™ bag for baby carrots, crackers, pretzels, and I found it was great at providing a little extra protection for pieces of fresh fruit such as peaches and plums. The food stayed fresh, and when I got home, all I had to do was wipe or rinse out the ReSnackIt™ bag and set in on the dish drainer to dry. I've been using my ReSnackIt™ bag so much that I've reduced the number of sandwich bags we've used signifigantly. It's a great feeling to be doing something good for th earth, while reaping a financial benefit, too!
