It’s PLASTIC FREE JULY! The idea of this is pretty self-explanatory – for the month of July, myself and countless many others are raising awareness about single use plastic and how you can help tackle this issue by using reusable options. Over the next few days I’ll be sharing a couple of simple suggestions to help you ditch those disposables.
Today’s post is about Sandwich Bags/containers because goodness knows how many single use plastic sandwich bags get used on a daily basis. My guessing is a lot.
Here are a couple of suggestions for reusable options that I personally use and love:
Fluf Snack Pack
Made from 100% organic cotton with a food-safe lining, these funky little packs are pretty versatile. They fasten closed with a velcro tab and easily hold 2 sandwiches, along with other various foods that you’d like wrap up.
I love the fun designs that are printed on the front, which are done using low impact, azo free dye. The lining is BPA, pthalate and lead free, so totally food safe and easy to wipe clean.
Size: 6”(L) x 6.25”(W) x 0.75”(D)

Bees Wrap Sandwich Wrap
Made from organic cotton, beeswax, organic jojoba oil and tree resin. This cool sandwich wrap is reusable with a shelf life of approx 1 year. At the end of its life, this wrap can be returned to the earth by composting in your very own garden.
Easy to clean and care for by washing and wiping down with cool water and letting it air dry.
Size: 13″ x 13″
