If you are a mama like me, you hate being wasteful. Especially when it means more trips to the store and throwing money down the drain. Lunchskins can help with that.

Kirsten and Cris are the co-founders of Lunchskins Reusable Sandwich Bags. Jennie is the creative director who designs these adorable bags! Sitting around a kitchen table back in 2008 – they heard this:
Every day, more than 20 million sandwich bags from school lunches go into landfills just in the US!
Their families were looking for easy, convenient ways to be green and avoid this kind of waste, so they put their passion and energy together and 3greenmoms was born. Their mission is to design a colorful, fresh alternative to the plastic baggie.
They started by finding a food safe, dishwasher friendly, moderately attractive reusable bag. They came up with designs, and then found a family owned manufacturer in Pennsylvania.
Whether you care about the environment, saving money, eating healthy or looking stylish, LunchSkins are the answer! Lunchskins are dishwasher safe, bpa, lead and phthalate free, handsewn in the US (yeah) and 100 % guaranteed.
Lunchskins are made from a thick cotton fabric coated with a food-safe polyurethane liner that is manufactured in Europe and has been used for years in bakers and restaurants. Lunchskins are grease-proof and moisture proof.
Lunchskins also believes in giving where you live. They donate 1 % of online sales profits to the C & O Canal Trust, an organization formed to protect and restore the historic Canal near the nation’s capital, a trash-free National Park.
How awesome is that?
Our Experience with Lunchskins
|This is what I received. A sandwich bag and 2 Snack Bags along with a bunch of coupons! How adorable are the prints on these?|
We loved our lunchskins. Usually, my daughter who is 20 months old, has her snack in a snack cup – but I tried giving her one of these snack bags and she loves it. If the dog gets too close to her, she closes it. The velcro on these is super strong, so she can’t always open it again on her own and needs help, but I love that. I like these because I can put fruit in the snack bags if I want to, but they also work great for crackers. The snack bag is absolutely perfect for your little toddler but also for anybody else.
|She really wanted me to take this picture. She kept saying, “mama cheese”|
The sandwich bag is perfect for somebody like me. I eat sandwiches everyday, so having something really handy to put it in until I get in the car and eat it is nice. I would just carry it out there and hope I didn’t drop it because I didn’t want to waste a bag. With the Lunchskins, I didn’t have to worry about wasting a bag. Plus, I could stuff my sandwich full of meat and cheese and whatever else, and it would fit into the bag without any problem. The bag wasn’t super small and hard to put a sandwich bag in like a plastic baggie tends to be.
|Folded up you can still see that there is some room in the bag but it seals up nicely.|

Three things I absolutely LOVE about these snack and sandwich bags.
1. They are super easy to wash up. I just fold them inside out (it is recommended that you fold them inside out for washing) and throw them in the dishwasher. If I want to use it right away, I just wipe it out and off we go. They also dry off quickly whether in the dishwasher, or air drying. Lunchskins are designed to withstand high heats like you would find in an industrial kitchen.
2. The name label. This is an awesome feature, especially if you have kids in school or you take them to work with you. Use a permanent marker and keep tabs on your Lunchskins.
3. The adorable prints! Who doesn’t love that? Check out the new styles here.
