Summer Bash Review & Giveaway #20 - ReUsies*CLOSED*


The EPA estimates 500 billion - one trillion plastic bags are used worldwide every year.
A typical school/work lunch contains 3-4 plastic sandwich bags each day amounting to upwards of 1,000 each year for one person. These bags will all be around long after we are gone!

Wanna help reduce these numbers? I know I do, my solution get ReUsies. ReUsies™ are a re-usable alternative to sandwich/snack bags, each one has the potential to eliminate hundreds of plastic bags. ReUsies™ are 100% cotton lined with leak-resistant nylon and are secured with Velcro® closures.

I recently was send a snack and sandwhich size ReUsies bags. The color is called Going Green, and they are simple yet too cute. They are very handy for taking snacks to therapy with us on Mondays & Tuesdays. It's a 45 minute drive then an hour visit so snacks are nice.

ReUsies come in 2 sizes, snack and sandwhich.
Snack: approx. 6” w / 5” h
The snack size holds a half sandwich or whole sandwich with the crust cut off! It is good for smaller quantities of crackers, pretzels, apple slices, etc.
Sandwich: approx. 7.5” w/ 6”h
The sandwich size holds a typical "grown up"- sized sandwich, full bagel, or larger quantity of snacks.
A typical lunch would contain one sandwich and two snack-sized bags or three snack-sized bags.

Right now buy 3 or more and get free 1st class shipping within the US and Canada.

Care Instructions

ReUsies™ can be machine washed and dried, washed in the dishwasher, or for longest life simply wiped clean with a soapy sponge and air dried.
**to keep the Velcro from snagging on the stitching when washing in the machine we recommend turning the bag inside out, tucking in the flap, and securing one side of the Velcro to the other.

ReUsies offers many cute prints and color combos.
