Eco Lunch Gear Giveaway & Review

With several kids in school, I often worry about the quality of food they are served at school. I trust in my kids to make good choices. Sometimes, the options offered just aren't the healthiest foods. I prefer to pack their lunches, so I know they have nutritious fuel, to get them through the rest of their day.  Kids that are full and content are more receptive to learning.  I have been stumped on how to be "green", when packing their lunches. Packing lunches for 3 kids and mu husband adds up to a lot of wasted plastic bags for one day. I thought about using plastic containers. If I do, then I  worry about the chemicals leaching into the food. Especially, if my husband needs to reheat a meal I have sent with him.

I discovered Eco Lunch Gear , a Michigan company founded by a family experiencing the same struggle. Tina decided to use her love for sewing to create eco-friendly items to replace plastic bags when packing lunches. All products are sewn in Michigan. You have to love an American company hiring American workers!
Eco Lunch Gear is recognized by Green America as a green company. All fabric used to make their products is 100% certified organic. That means no chemicals touching your food. The sandwich bags and wraps are lined to keep your food fresh. The are also water resistant. They work great for sandwiches and even for grapes and oranges! The sandwich wrap opens up to a perfect square to use as a place mat. No need for a paper plate and it also protect from nasty germs on a cafeteria table. I loved the fun patterns available. They are so easy to clean. You can either hand wash them in the sink with your dishes and hang them to dry or throw them in the wash. They wash up great because the fabric is already pre-shrunk. My kids have used our for a few week now and they look just like new. These are a great replacement for plastic bags and I  highly recommend you try them.

Eco Lunch Gear is offering a Saving U Green reader a free sandwich wrap and snack bag in the fabric of your choice! Visit Eco Lunch Gear  & comment below on what your favorite product is they offer.
