Finally I found a reusable bag that I like! We are a recycling and reusing family, but it is so hard to wash out your plastic baggies-knowing that they are really clean. I just couldn't come up with a good solution to our baggie problem. Then I found Reusies, which are so great. Using one Reusies bag can save 100's of bags from being thrown into landfills. Each bag is 100% cotton and lined with leak resistant nylon (BPA, Lead, Phthalate Free). You can then close them with the velcro fastener. They come in snack and sandwich sizes and are available in about 40 different patterns too! They can be machine washed and dried, put in the dishwasher or washed with soap and water, left to air dry.
We love Reusies! We use the bags more for dry snacks than sandwiches, which is great for Baby G. She loves that they velcro closed (me too!) and that they are easy for her to open as well. I can't tell you how many snacks are saved not that they are not being spilled all over the floor. We also love the cute patterns they come in and each person can have their very own set of baggies. They are pretty inexpensive as well, when you compare it to how much you spend on plastic baggies that are thrown out. You can get the snack size bags for under $7 and the sandwich size for under $9.
