Sometimes very small changes in how we run our kitchens can translate into tremendous savings over time – both for our pocketbooks and the environment. Isn’t it time you gave your kitchen a little green update? Every day more than 20 million sandwich bags from school lunches go into landfills in the US. 3 Green Moms thought this was wasteful so they invented Lunch Skins, an eco-chic, reusable, and dishwasher- safe alternative to disposable plastic sandwich and snack bags.
Hand-sewn in the US, Lunch Skins come in a variety of attractive, child-friendly patterns that include animals and fruits. According to the manufacturer’s web site, “these reusable, colorful cloth pouches are made from a high quality, moisture-proof German fabric used worldwide in the food industry. These bags are food safe, extremely durable, grease-proof and can even be thrown in the dishwasher.” We’ve been using these bags every day in my house for about a year and they’re still in great condition, even after being run through the dishwasher. I love that they are lead, Bisphenol-A (BPA) and phthalate-free.
Make Every Day Earth Day by replacing your plastic sandwich and snack bags with reusable Lunch Skins. 3greenmoms is offering my readers 10 percent off any online order through May 15.
