As Eco-novice readers know, I love reusable bags! I'm happy to say that I haven't purchased a box of disposable plastic baggies in several years. I have reusable bags in many different shapes and sizes and made with many different materials.
Recently we have been test driving Eco-ditty's reusable sandwich and snack bags. Eco-ditty food bags are
- Made in Colorado
- Made with 100% organic cotton fabrics (GOTS certified and fair trade)
- Available in a variety of attractive and stylish fabrics
- Have an undyed organic cotton liner -- no synthetics, plastics or chemicals touching your food
- Printed with low-impact inks and dyes
- Hook and loop closure
- Washable by hand, machine or dishwasher (line dry is recommended -- although I accidentally dried mine in the dryer and they are still fine)
The sandwich bag measures 7.25 x 6 inches and the snack bag measures 6 x 4 inches. In a perfect world, all my reusable food packaging would be plastic-free. But let's be honest, I won't be wrapping a PB&J in a cotton food bag anytime soon. However, I like to use plastic-free bags whenever possible. Lots of foods work well in cotton bags, especially just for daily lunch fare: turkey sandwich, apple slices, carrot sticks, crackers, cookies, etc. And then for some foods, a cotton bag is ideal. Grapes, for example. When I take grapes in a lunch bag, I usually stick a washcloth or reusable napkin in there because I've just washed them and don't want them to be soggy. The Eco-ditty bag was just the perfect thing to take my grapes in.
