GreenTime Reusable Bags ~ Review
I was given the opportunity to try out another set of reusable sandwich and snack bags, this time from a company called GreenTime Bags.
These sandwich/snack bags are PVC, BPA, lead and phthalate free. They are also hand or machine washable. I like the idea they give for drying them on a bottle drying rack. They are definitely a much better alternative than disposable plastic bags. I really like how deep the pockets in the bags are because I'm pretty sure nothing is going to escape from them. The one thing that was a little strange to me was how wide the sandwich bag is. I've never seen bread that wide, so I'm not sure why you would need it like that, except for then I thought about that you could probably fit a sandwich that was made on part of a sub bun or something like that in it. Also it would probably work out nicely for a wrap or pita sandwich. I like taking wraps to work a lot, so that would be the perfect size for them. They come in great prints too, so they aren't just great for the environment, but they are fun too.
Here is one of the bags that I received (the other is a snack bag and has a retro dot design to it)...
Overall, I think these are great reusable bags and I am glad to have them as an alternative to wasteful plastic baggies. If you would like to have a better alternative for yours and/or your childrens' lunches, get over to GreenTime Bags and get yourself some!
