The time has come and I just need to be honest with myself.
Summer Vacation officially ends on Wednesday.
(Yes, I am crying real tears as I write this post.)
But that means it's back to the daily grind and back to the sitter for my little monkey. One of my favorite things I do for him is pack his lunch and snacks for him everyday. Even though my sitter will provide lunch for him, I feel like this is one way to make him remember that I'm always thinking about him when I'm away from him -- even if he is just 22 months.
But one thing we are constantly going through are plastic baggies. When you think about how many you use on a daily basis, it really is outrageous. I know that I pack at least 4 baggies in his lunch for him a day.
That's 20 baggies a week and 80 plastic baggies a month.
Seriously -- too much!!
I recently came across this great product, snackTAXI that makes packing my son's lunch more affordable and Earth friendly. They are adorable reusable sacks that replace plastic baggies. The inside of snackTAXIs are lined with nylon, so they easily be washed when messes are made.
One of the best things about snackTAXI products are the variety of reusable bags and products that they offer. My favorite is the Snack-Sack. These little sacks are the perfect size for a healthy amount of a snack. If your little one doesn't finish their snack, these Snack-Sacks have velcro so you can just seal it up until later! The snackTAXI Snack-Sacks fit perfectly in lunchboxes, diapers bags or even purses for when you're on the go!
snackTAXI products are BPA, lead and phthalates free as well as machine washable, which means they are healthy for our tots and convenient for moms. What's even greater is that by using a reusable bag from snackTAXI you help keep as many as 1000 plastic bags out of the waste stream!
So, as the school year quickly approaches, let snackTAXI help your family become enviromentally friendly by using these adorabally patterned products.
Moms, it's a win - win situation -- you save money and your family will be the most stylish and greenest kids at lunchtime!
