At home I really try not to use so many disposable plastic snack bags and instead use reusable glass/plastic containers.  I am successful most of the time but there are still times when we go out and I end up using the disposable bags to carry our snacks.   Well, I am very happy to say that thanks to Giving Gifts I have found an eco-friendly solution to the problem and I won’t be using any more disposable snack bags in the future!

The Itsy Ritzy Reusable Snack Bags are super cute cotton bags that have a lead-free, phthalate free and PVC-free waterproof lining and a zipper.  I have been using mine to carry our bananas, sandwiches, apple slices, grapes, veggies, crackers,  baby yogurt,  cheese, etc.

To clean our bag all I need to do is turn it inside-out and shake out any crumbs or dirt,  I then  hand wash it and hang dry it.  Note that you can also machine wash it if you want.

I like that they also have some super cute designs!  Another thing I really like is that I just need to buy a couple of these to keep on rotation instead of buying boxes and boxes of the disposable plastic bags. I am saving money and the environment at the same time!

The great thing about the Itzy Ritzy bags is that you can also use them to carry many other items that are not just food related. For example you can use them to carry your make-up, toiletries, pacifiers, small toys, crayons and even your cellphone!!

I now challenge YOU to stop using the disposable plastic bags and instead use the reusable option! Remember we can make a difference if we all take charge!
