"Over the years, my children have carried countless lunches to school. And every time I packed one of those lunches in a plastic bag, I thought there has to be a better way --- I felt worse and worse about all those plastic bags from my home ending up in landfills. It didn't make things any better that I was trying to teach my own children the value of recycling. "Recycle in every way you can," I said to them as I handed them a plastic bag that we all knew would be thrown away as soon as they were done with it. But one day I wondered, why not make a reusable bag, one that looked cool, and which they'd be proud to carry to school and (most importantly!) home again? The idea grew on me, and one day I asked my children what I should call it. My little one said, "Call it an Againbag, Mommy, because I can use it again and again." Simple as that, Againbags came into the world, reducing the use of plastic baggies, one lunch at a time! Also, Againbags are hand made in the United States from the highest quality materials we could find. You won't be disappointed, I promise!" ~againbags.com
I'm in LOVE with the pattern above, and so is my daughter. The Velcro is easy for your child to open and close. The "hook and loop closure" keeps the food fresh and everything will stay inside when closed! The bags come in three different sizes so that you can use for anything. Even better, they are super affordable! The medium bag is only $6.95 which is perfect for sandwiches. Now all you pay is that price for one bag vs. buying plastic bags over and over and over......it does add up. Not only are you being green but you are also saving money! We all like to do that every now and then.
