Don’t you just get so tired of throwing stuff out? Disposable sandwich bags, napkins, paper towels, etc. It seems so silly to waste money on stuff that’s just going to end up in the trash. Even though I try really hard to be “green” I use all those products. A lot. Especially paper towels. Eric got this huge deal on paper towels awhile ago through Staples and now I have a floor to ceiling stack of bulk paper towels in my basement. So I feel like I have to use them…..ugh! So I try to compensate in other ways by using less of the other stuff. I love using cloth sandwich and snack bags. Eric even takes them to work.
When Done with Disposables contacted me to review a few of her products, I was ecstatic when she said she would send a snack bag! You can never have too many and Grady needed one of his own (the few I have are rather girly). In addition to the snack bag, she also sent the most adorable bib for Haley! The prints she sent were right on. She couldn’t have chosen better prints for our family. Grady got a Thomas the Train Snack Bag (he’s train obsessed lately) and Haley got a Purple Guitar Bib (Eric plays guitar and we have them everywhere in our house). I smiled when I opened the package and saw the prints because we didn’t even discuss what I wanted! In addition to snack bags and bibs, you’ll also find handmade cloth wipes! You can never have too many of those either!
Grady snatched up the snack bag as soon as I opened the package. He was super excited that there were “choo choos” on it. He has a little trouble getting the zipper open and closed, but he’s only 2. With some practice he’ll be able to open it himself with no problems. The sewing quality is excellent. Nice straight stitches and the zipper functions perfectly. She sells several different sizes and we have a medium size. It has plenty of room for a snack and is even big enough to fit a sandwich in there. It’s cleaned up nicely so far. All you need to do is wipe it out after each use, or you can throw it in the washer. I’ll keep you updated on how it fares after prolonged use, but I think it will do very well.
Like I said above, the bib she sent for Haley is ADORABLE. I haven’t used it much yet since Haley doesn’t really need a bib at the moment, but she’s been starting to drool a little, so I’ve put it on her a few times. It’s washed up great so far, and again, the sewing is excellent. The thing I like best about this bib is that the closure is snaps instead of velcro. Velcro gets so yucky after awhile, so I know that this will look nicer so much longer (and she won’t be able to pull it off either)! One side is a cotton fabric and the other looks to be minkee. It’s so soft!
Both products are made extremely well and in the process of living a “greener” lifestyle, I get to support a WAHM as well!
