Reusies Review and Giveaway


We use a TON of plastic sandwich bags in a variety of sizes at my house and they can get quite expensive. We use them for my oldest daughter's lunches and snacks, leftover pizza, toys you name it. I was really excited to run across a little company by the name of Reusies. Reusies are a re-usable alternative to using the countless sandwich and snacks bags that we use almost on a daily basis. Each one Reusies has the potential to eliminate hundreds of plastic bags. They are 100% cotton lined, with leak resistant nylon and are secured with velcro enclosures. I received the Party Flower Pink sandwich bag and the Hide and Seek snack bag for review. They are so cute and colorful at first look and my daughter was so excited to be able to use them for her school lunches. I packed her some carrots in one bag and potato chips in the other. She took them to school and when she got some, she said some of her friends were asking her where she got those cute little bags. Of course, her being 7 years old, she didn't remember where I told her they came from but nonetheless, it was cool the kids were asking her. These are so easy to use and all I did was wipe them out with a damp paper towel and let dry in the dish rack for a little bit. Reusies has a wide variety of colors to suit your mood and they are available in the two sizes above. The sandwich bag is very roomy too. I really enjoyed using these and my oldest did too!





At the start of the new school year, the folks at Reusies realized that families were going through an average of 10 plastic bags a day between school and work lunches. We do our best to reuse and recycle in other areas, but there didn't seem to be a solution to the plastic sandwich bags that we were using. They developed Reusies for their waste free quality but many of their customers' primary reason for purchasing their product was to eliminate plastic from coming in direct contact of their food. Reusies was developed by Seattle moms with a passion to do right by their children and hope that the footprint that they leave behind for future generations will be much smaller.



A couple of fast facts about plastic and plastic bags:
*The EPA estimates 500 billion-one trillion plastic bags are used worldwide every year.
*Plastic bags make up over 10% of debris found on US Coastlines.
*Each plastic bag takes over 1,000 years to break down. Plastic bags do not biodegrade.
*By taxing plastic bags with a "plastax" many countries including Ireland and some US cities are reducing consumption.

Do your part and head on over to Reusies: http://www.reusies.com/index.html Check out all they have to offer and more information about this great company. They also have a deal where if you order 3 or More Reusies, you will receive 10% off your order. Just enter code 3ORMORE at the checkout!
