Dear SnackTaxi, thank you for inventing a “stick ‘n lock” bag to help me carry my little lunch snacks without being wasteful.
When I first saw Hungry Girl introduce these bags, I was skeptical as to how useful they’d be. After all, I use zip lock bags for a variety of MESSY and sometimes, wet things!
Enter Erin Kelly Dill – the owner and inventor of SnackTaxi bags, who sent me a starter kit to review on Lucky Taste Buds. Ever since I got ’em, I realized that (A) I don’t pack liquids/wet things in sandwich bags as much as I THINK I do, and (B) I really do enjoy NOT being wasteful! I haven’t used a single plastic ziplock bag once! (No need to buy ’em in the future!)
This mom of 3 started her own business in 2003 to eliminate waste from packing her kids’ lunches!
#1. I’m a sucker for color and adorable designs! There are a million patterns to choose from on their online store.
#2. The bags are a great size! The sandwich sack fits 4 mandarin oranges…
Here are the dimensions to all the bags you can get!
- snack-sack 6″W x 4.5″H
- sandwich-sack 7.5″W x 6″H
- lunch-sack 10″W x 11″H w/ a 3″ bottom
- bulk/produce bag 10″W (20″ circumference opening) x 18″ L
#3. The fabric of the pouches are thick, durable, and the inside is WATERPROOF!
Jill put a lot of thought into the design of these pouches. While the outside layer is 100% cotton, the inside is made out of nylon with a polyurethane waterproof coating. The nylon is free of heavy metals (like lead), PBB’s, and PBDE’s.
#4: They’re eco-friendly!! Eliminate waste and cut down the cost of buying plastic bags to hold your snacks and lunches.
#5: EASY CLEANING!! You can throw ‘em in the dish washer or run water and soap under the sink straight into the bag!
#6: A great way to support local business – SnackTaxi pouches are made in a home workshop by local sewers in Plainfield Massachusetts!
#7: You get to be creative with the things you pack! Bake homemade treats and bring ‘em to work or school! Pack cereal or granola with no spillage! It has more padding than a zip-lock, and when you’ve finished what’s inside, simply turn the bag upside down and pat out all the crumbs!
