ReUsies Review and Giveaway

the winner is amanda
Are you still using plastic baggies? We are too, but not as many! We’ve greatly reduced our usage of plastic baggies in the past year. I’ve been reusing the ones I do use. I use small plastic containers for lunches and I’ve been using reusable bags.

Reusies are one brand of the reusable baggies I have been using. I love using them. They work just as good as plastic baggies and you just throw the in the wash to clean them.
Reusies was started by Seattle moms with a passion to do right by their children and reduce the footprint they will leave behind.

Reusies are 100% cotton, lined with water-resistant 100% nylon (BPA, Lead and Phthalate free). They come with Velcroยฎ closures that are kid-friendly and ensure that the food won’t fall out.

Did you know…

Plastic bags make up over 10% of debris found on US Coastlines.
Each plastic bag takes over 1,000 years to break down.Wow that’s alot.
Plastic bags do not biodegrade, they photodegrade whereby over time they breakdown into smaller, more toxic petropolymers.Less than 1% of plastic bags are recycled.
It costs more to recycle a plastic bag than to produce a new one.
A typical school/work lunch contains 3-4 plastic sandwich bags each day amounting to upwards of 1,000 each year for one person. These bags will all be around long after we are gone!
