Pros: No more plastic baggies, hold snacks of all sorts, fun designs and colors
Cons: Velcro can get sticky in washer sometimes.
It may seem like a lot of money to spend on snack bags, but these last a long time whereas plastic baggies not only harm the planet, but you have to keep buying them over and over.
- Available in organic cotton.
- Reusable cloth bags for snack are far better than using plastic bags or foil which don't always get recycled and cloth is non-toxic while plastic snack containers can leach chemicals into your food.
- Long life span so fewer new resources used.
Other fun perks:
Adorable and beautiful designs available - Both my son Cedar and me love the colors and styles of the fabric bags we got.
These bags are lighter than containers. Aluminum food storage containers are safe so I buy them over plastic, but they're heavy and take up a lot of space, but these bags are slim and compact. Come packaged in non-excessive packaging.
These baggies work great. They're heavy weight fabric and have extra strong Velcro closures. So far they have not opened up while we’re on the go. I also like the size choices. There are sandwich sized bags, tiny fruit snack sized bags and a medium size that's good for crackers or cut veggies.
They hold up well in the washer. The Velcro can get sticky but the owner of Plum Creek told me that if you turn the baggies inside out they won't stick to other stuff so much and she was right. Even after MANY washings the Velcro closures are as strong as ever. Also, food in these baggies stays fresh for the day. Obviously because they're cloth, they're not meant for long-term food storage though.
For busy parents and kids on the go this is a fab eco-option over plastic bags and plastic containers for snacks.
