lunchskins: guilt-free lunches with modern, cheery reusable bags! {$50 giveaway}

I would have to say that ditching plastic baggies and wrap has been by far the most difficult step to going green. Convenience is really what it comes down to and I’m sad to say that since becoming a busy mom of two instead of one, life got crazy and we’ve slacked bigtime. Time to smarten up and empty the drawer of everything plastic!

To do that, we’re using Lunchskins – I’m sure all of you mamas have heard about this fabulously modern, eco-friendly company by now right? Lunchskins is owned and operated by 3GreenMoms who were fed up with contributing to the waste. If you’re not aware, more than 20 million sandwich bags from school lunches make their way into the landfill every year. Unbelievable!

Lunchskins completely replace all the plastic in the average lunchbag but since I’m not toting lunch or sending my kids to school yet, I’ve replaced the plastic snack bags that I’m always toting around in my diaper bag for when I’m out running errands with kids on my hips. But our Lunckskins aren’t just for outside the house.  We use them at home -  both my boys get excited to carry around a colorful little treat bag filled with snacks just for them.

 

These pictures are of the boys enjoying snacks from their LunchSkins. Aidan at 3, is able to easily open up the velcro {takes longer than an adult of course, but it’s do-able!} and he knows how to close it up when he’s done. Ethan is 1 and he carries around his snack bag without dumping everything out {horray!} The velcro closure keep everything inside and the high quality thick cotton they’re made with are grease-proof and moisture-proof. The Lunchskins reusable cloth bags look great, are incredibly easy to care for — actually I was shocked to find out they can dishwasher safe!! You just turn them inside out and place them on the top rack. Or you can throw them in the washing machine and dryer {inside out, velcro closed}.

  1. I would pick out a 2 or 3 snack bags for my daughter and a sandwich or sub bag for DH. I like the garden series fabric.
