The ReUsies Company is a Seattle based business run by families who are trying to reduce the amount of waste - especially plastic waste - that we are leaving behind as a result of the convenience/disposable lifestyle most of us lead.  The catalyst was a conversation about how many disposable sandwich and snack bags they used each week for their children's lunches.

In addition to eliminating the waste, the ReUsies also created a way to stop putting the children's food items in direct contact with plastics.  An added bonusis the fact that these little bags are so cute, and they come in great patterns.

I was sent an AARRFF! Two Pack to review.  What an adorable print this is!  The bags are a classic black shade, and the print is one the flap.  Flap closures are made of hook and eye Velcro.

After each use, the ReUsies should be turned inside out, wiped clean and allowed to air dry.  They can also be laundered in the clothes washer and dryer or the dishwasher.

Notice that there is plenty of room inside - so if the bags aren't filled, they can be double over and closed up into a smaller size.

Although the nylon lining helps keep food fresh, there will not be a zipper tight seal with these.  You would want to make sure that if any lunch items could get stale, that they are not packed the night before. I also saw a great idea on the ReUsies Facebook Page.  Wrap a gift in a ReUsie, tie a bow on it, and eliminate wrapping paper waste!

I have been given the opportunity to host a giveaway, too.
