Hello! It’s Green-Up Monday!
Say goodbye to plastic zip bags from your kid’s lunch! Here comes cuteness to wrap it all up! Seriously. You know you hate zipping those plastic baggies and you sometimes feel guilty at all the trash you are creating. If not, I suggest you pay a visit to your kid’s school cafeteria during lunch time and look around.
The same conveniences you love about your plastic zip bags, you’ll adore in your Pouch Pals. Pouch Pals’ mission is to “Create a healthier planet for our kids by making it easy and fun for families to pack ‘greener’ lunches and reduce waste.”
I’ve been using my Pouch Pals snack bags for a while now and my kids love them. They are super easy to open and you can put moist or dry food in them. Here are our two:
We have the snack size Pouch Pals… but they are pretty roomy. To the right is Alex’s and it’s holding two mini bagels. Sofia’s has grapes. I love the fact that I can reduce zip bag usage, waste, and they are easy to velcro close. They wash great in the laundry (inside out) or I merely wipe them down to clean if they are not too dirty. I’ve washed mine a dozen times so far and they have held their shape, texture, and quality perfectly.
One of the things that most impressed me about Pouch Pals is that the product was created by a Mom with small children who saw the need to reduce waste and save money for her family. From the products to the packaging used for shipping and their stationary; Pouch Pals has definitely proven that they are an environment conscious company.
Look at all these bags! aren’t they cute? Just imagine your child opening up his/her lunch all wrapped up like a present! -That’s what Alex calls them: snack presents.
The Sandwich sized are $9 and the snack sized Pouch Pals are $7. You’ll see that these will pay for themselves no time between school lunches, after-school snacks and weekend outings.
In case you are wondering how many I suggest you get per child, I think you should get one sandwich size and two or three snack sized ones. You can always put one or two wet wipes inside one for your kid to wash his/her hands before and after they eat (good idea, right?).
I love that Pouch Pals are a safe and reusable alternative to plastic zip bags and they are made in the USA. You’ll save money and feel good that your kids are eating their food out a bag that is made out of a 100% cotton exterior and a nylon interior that is 100% free of BPA, phthalates, and PVC. On the days they are not using their pouches, you’ll find yourself filling them with your snacks (they are great for at-home-mom snack portion control).
Now that you’ve made it this far and have clicked on Pouch Pals’ site and saw all the cute fabrics that will match any lunch bag… I will tell you that Pouch Pals has offered my readers a 20% off discount on a purchase of $30 or more by entering Pals2711 for the next 30days. Wooohooo!!! I’m so excited for you! Go get yours and green up your kid’s lunch! 🙂
