SnackTAXI review and giveaway!!! (CLOSED)


With school being just around the corner, I am excited to introduce to you "SnackTAXI reusable bags". Although my oldest is only in pre-school, we go through hundreds of sandwich/Ziploc bags a year. Whether its for a long wait at the doctors office, snacks for soccer/t-ball games or even for a short/long car ride, I am always having to pack snacks. I cannot leave the house without a bag of snacks. Being a mom also means I will have plenty to carry around with me so I need to pack as light as possible, which is where the plastic bags come in.

Erin Kelly-Dill, owner of SnackTAXI, started noticing how many Ziploc bags were being used in her own home each year. She estimated that she made over 500 lunches a year for her 3 children. This is what motivated her to find something less wasteful and just as convenient. In 2003 SnackTAXI reusable bags were created.



Review:
I LOVE my SnackTAXI bags. It feels good to not go through so many plastic bags and saves me money. These reusable bags are very easy to use and best of all, you can throw them into the wash when they need to be cleaned. Each bag is made from 100% cotton and is lined with a waterproof material that consists of nylon with a polyurethane coating. All of the fabrics used at SnackTAXI have been tested and are free of heavy metals and phthalates. Using SnackTAXI's products helps me feel I am really contributing to our planets health. My children especially love the fun designs on their bags.

The Giveaway:
One winner will win their very own set of SnackTAXI reusable bags!

I plan on using this in my daughter's lunch box - - sent her to camp today with a plastic bag in there.

Mommy Jones said...

I help the planet by using glass bottles for our milk - - it's an old fashioned idea that really works since they're resusable.

Barely Domestic Mama said...

I'd plan on using my SnackTAXI on our playdates for my little guy instead of trying to stuff the snacks in my super tiny diaper bag.

andrea v said...

I love, love, love my reusable bags. I don't leave the house without at least two of them.

I'd use it to bring the sandwiches and snacks for the little ones, or maybe I'll use them to carry apple slices or chips myself.

We're contributing to the environmental cause by cutting down on our A/C use. we've only used the A/C 2 times this summer!

I plan on using my snackTAXI when we go to the park, zoo or anywhere else

I use cloth napkins, recycle, take my own bags to the grocery store, and bike instead of drive whenever possible.

I educate who family esp. DH about how to think about getting green everyday. and certain things like to put empty milk or any cartons/jugs in recycle bin should be part of daily life.

I'd use them for my toddler's snacks during road trips. I use about 3-4 plastic baggies for each one, so these are great!

Gabrielle said...

LOVE THEM! I make an entire reusable bag line, these are brilliant!

I like the grass menagerie multi sandwich sack

Amber said...

I would use them for bringing foods to work. I normally use one plastic bag a week for my cereal in the morning - it'd be good to cut that out entirely.

Amber said...

Probably the biggest way I have cut back on my personal destruction of the earth is by joining a Community Shared Agriculture (CSA). My veggies are delivered from a local farm - so I know my corn isn't shipped in from the midwest and my peaches from Georgia. The veggies are good too!

debbie78 said...

My list goes on and on. I recycle, reuse, and reduce every day. We have installed motion sensors in rooms, hot water heater timer, hang out clothes, open windows, insulating,put in wood stove. My list never ends. Just turned an old pop-up camper into a chicken house, using wood from tearing down an old house trailer. would love to win. Please enter me, thank you

Jeny said...

This would bring me one step closer to being green. I already use reusable grocery and produce bags. My favorite design is the tiny skulls.

Shannon said...

My favorite design are any of the "owls" patterns... my oldest loves owls, so she would love any of these!

Shannon said...

I'd use these in my girls' school lunches. My oldest used to sometimes buy lunch at school... but pretty much all last scholl year she wanted to pack her lunch. My youngest has NEVER bought school lunch! I shudder to think about how many plastic bags I've gone through!

Shannon said...

I've started taking tote bags to the grocery store instead of using plastic bags. And I've also started using a filtered water pitcher instead of buying bottled water!

NGS said...

I'll be using the SnackTaxi for lunches. We use a lot of plastic ziploc containers, but this looks like it will be a lot easier to clean!

NGS said...

We use reusable grocery bags at the grocery store instead of getting bags there. You can fit a lot more into the cloth bags, too, so there are fewer bags to tote around!!

Amanda said...

I like the apples sandwich sacks, great for all the car trips we take!

Amanda said...

We would use ours on trips to the zoo and childrens museum! We always pack a lunch.

I have tried to use half as many paper towels in our house and have been using rags for cleaning up meses and the kids!
Good for the plant and my pocketbook!

Laurie C. said...

What a great idea! I love the fact that they're machine washable. That's so much better even than little cartons that go in the dishwasher. They always flip and fill with water.

While I love all of the things I see on the site, I especially like the snack-sacks in the water spot fabrics.

I love all those fabrics, but I think the apples is my favorite.

I'd use this at work - our baby's still too little for non-milk snacks!

We use cloth diapers, cloth shopping bags, and cloth kitchen rags (instead of paper towels).

In our city, Austin, it's very important to Go Green! Almost everyone recycles, uses cloth grocery bags, and takes bus transportation! :)
