Happy Earth Day from our team here at Daily Grommet!
Today we're featuring a product I could have never appreciated until my daughter started pre-school. It's called the SnackTAXI and it's a reusable snack and sandwich bag, perfect for kid's lunches for daycare and school.
I have the lunch packing duty at our house and I've increasingly become aware of all the plastic we're using. A plastic bag for the sandwich. A plastic bag for crackers. At a minimum, it's one small plastic bag a day, five days a week, all year long. And the teachers have too much going on to ask the kids to keep the bags to be reused the next day, so every day it gets thrown out.
As a family we could be a lot better at living in a more environmentally-friendly way and I'm always looking for quick ways to do it. (Here are some good ideas we featured on this blog a few weeks back.) We recycle, turn lights off when we're not in the room, use natural cleaning materials, and try to not use paper towels for every single little kitchen spill (and with a four year-old, we have enough of those!) This snackTAXI is a no-brainer for me. Especially with the cute fabrics I am sure my kiddo will like. Buy snackTAXI reusable snack and sandwich bags here.
