Snack Taxi Review & Giveaway

I am currently in the process of ditching all disposable kitchen items. No more ziploc bags, paper towels, saran wrap, etc. It's so wasteful and not good for the earth! Plus, isn't it better to save money by using reusable items? I generally don't use plastic baggies but my husband does, and as Elijah gets older I am sure I will be bringing something for him to snack on whenever we go out.


I recently came across Snack Taxi, resuseable bags for snacks and sandwiches, exactly what I was looking for! They sent me 3 items for review, a sandwich snack, snack sack, and twice-as-nice napkin.
The Snack Taxi sandwich and snack sacks are made with a 100% cotton exterior and a waterproof nylon interior. All the materials they use to make their products are extensively tested an are lead and phthalates free. They are easy to care for, you can either machine wash and dry or rinse out and air dry.
I've tried out these sacks with everything from sandwiches to snacks, and I even found a new use for the snack sack the other day! Elijah is teething, he's been having a really rough time this past week. I don't like for him to chew on plastic so those plastic water filled teething toys are out. Frozen washcloths can get really messy, so I needed another alternative. While I was in the kitchen trying to brainstorm I saw my snack sack on the counter. I got out some frozen pineapple (the consistency of frozen pineapple is great for teething babies cause it's pretty soft), wrapped it up in a napkin and stuffed it into the snack sack. Viola! Elijah loved it. He chewed on it and carried it around with him. I felt good about him chewing on it because it wasn't plastic, and it gave him that relief he needed. The bag is actually sitting in the freezer right now so we can use it again soon.
So, we love these sacks. We're not contributing to the landfills and these sacks are a lot nicer to look at than a plastic bag!
The twice-as-nice napkin has also come in very handy. I've been bringing it everywhere I go!


Buy it: Visit Snack Taxi to purchase some reusable snack and sandwich sacks!

Win it: Snack Taxi is giving one of our readers the same set that I tried out, a Sandwich Sack, Snack Sack, and Twice-As-Nice Napkin (a $20 value). Fabric selections are always changing so they can't guarantee any prints.

I'm a public GFC follower (of course!) and my favorite print is mirror ball - something that my husband hopefully would not mind bringing to work!

Ana B said...

I've learned that they have this really cool deal: you can suggest a store for them where you want to see snackTAXIs sold, and if that store makes an order you will win a set of snackTAXIs! Sweet :)
