ECO Zip Bags Review and Giveaway

I use a lot of plastic sandwich and storage bags around my house. They are so versatile to use when having to store food or pack things for my oldest daughter's lunches. I also use them around the house for storing small toys, batteries and small health and beauty items among other household items. I know it's really not good for the environment to use so much plastic and I have been looking for a lot of other alternatives out on the market. Hard to believe also just how much these bags cost! I found some really great bags called ECOzip that uses less plastic to make their bags and allows you to use less bags to store and organize. I was sent a variety of bags in a different variety of sizes for review and I was really excited to try these. Anything to make my life simpler and use less plastic, I'm all for it. I use most of the sandwich size plastic bags to put sandwiches in for my oldest daughter's school lunches. Then I end up using another bag for chips and still another bag for carrots or celery. My daughter goes to school some days with three to four plastic bags in her lunchbox with all of her food in it and that's just wasteful. ECOzip bags contain a "Zip and Flip" technology. Each bag has a zipper on each end of it and another in the middle which allows you to say for instance put a sandwich in one side of the bag and maybe chips or my daughter's favorite-cheese puffs in the other side of the bag and fold it into the lunchbox for easy storage. You can close the middle zipper and have the two individual compartments or unzip the middle and have one bigger bag. This is such a wonderful yet unique concept and saves busy moms like me a lot of time, effort and not to mention money. I absolutely LOVE these bags and can't begin to tell you since using them, I have cut way down on using so many plastic bags around my home and it feels really good! I really can't imagine going back to using my old brand of plastic bags anymore! My oldest daughter really likes them too and it takes up less space in her lunchbox and she's really happy about that. I love how I can put her sandwich in the lower compartment and put the toppings like maybe a small piece of lettuce, cheese, and a little individual packet of mayo or mustard in the top and not having to worry about her sandwich getting soggy or the mayo spoiling. Usually she just wants a sandwich with meat and cheese just for this reason, but now with these new bags from ECOzip, she is asking for all kinds of new ideas, it's so much fun! These bags are strong and durable, I thought for sure that using 20% less plastic that they might be a little flimsy, definitely not the case. The zippers are easy to zip and I haven't had any problems with the bag ripping. I am definitely impressed with the quality of these great ECOzip bags.

The fewer plastic bags we use the less plastic production and disposal places on the environment. That's why ECO zip bags are the perfect choice. Producing their bags with 20% less plastic allows them to use less resources to make their bags. The "ECO" in ECOzip stands for ecological and economical, not only does ECOzip allow consumers to reduce their consumption but it also saves them from buying 2 to 3 different size packages. The future is green with a little help from you! These bags are perfect for leftovers, wet and dry snacks, travel, and so much more.ECOzip bags are available at Stop and Shop, Shopko, and Woodman's or you can purchase them on the web. They come in Snack/Sandwich, Quart and Gallon sizes and retail for $3.99 for all three sizes each or you can purchase all three-one of each size for $9.99.For more information, please head over HERE.
