As I've mentioned before, I recently began trying to replace the plastics in our home - starting with the kitchen. Its a work in progress, but I'm determined to get rid of as much plastic as possible. I've replaced our plastic food storage containers with glass ones. I've replaced my kids' plastic sippy cups with stainless steel. I've replaced our disposable plastic straws with reusable glass straws. You could say I'm on a mission - a mission to make our family healthier, our home more environmentally friendly and save money wherever possible.
With that in mind, I've been working on replacing the disposable plastic bags that we use for lunches and snacks. The wonderful folks at Itzy Ritzy were kind enough to send me a few of their snack bags for review, and I have to say, I immediately fell in love...
These bags are pretty amazing! They are BPA, Lead, and PVC-free and FDA-approved. They are also nice and thick, so they are very sturdy. And they are machine washable! That's right! When these get dirty, simply toss them in the washing machine and then line dry! And they dry pretty quickly, which is very convenient!
The Regular Snack Bag measures 7"x7" -
And the Mini Snack Bags (which come in a pack of 2) measure 7"x3.5" -
These bags are so versatile! Use them for sandwiches, chips, pretzels, crackers, fruit, bagels, fruit snacks, trail mix, and all sorts of other foods! You can also use them for other items too - like makeup, pens and pencils, etc. And because the lining is waterproof, they are great for carrying your cell phone, iPod, and keys to the pool or the beach!!! Plus, they come in such adorable and fashionable patterns! Itzy Ritzy sent me their "Sight Word Soup" pattern and I'm just gaga over it! I've just begun working with my little one on the alphabet, so as we continue, these will be great for practicing letter recognition and reading! When we are at the park or somewhere else and we're eating our snack, we can look for certain letters or work on reading the small words on the bags! Now that's a multi-functional product!!!
In conclusion, I think Itzy Ritzy's snack bags are great for many reasons. - 1.) They are free of lead, BPA, and PVC. 2.) They are reusable, which makes them environmentally friendly and very cost-effective! 3.) They are machine-washable, which makes them really convenient to use and reuse. 4.) They have a waterproof lining, which makes them useful for carrying more than just food. 5.) And they are very fashionable!!!
