We discovered canvas sandwich bags at Green Alternatives, the fabulous little green shop at the Five Points Community Farm Market in Norfolk, VA. No more need for plastic Ziploc bags!
I don’t send my husband to work with many sandwiches, mostly left overs. But every once in a while, a sandwich is the way to go for lunch. Besides, these sandwich bags are always nice to have on hand for picnics. Thin and light, made by Eco Bags, you can find them on-line at www.ecobags.com. No, I have no stock in the company, I just found them and like them, so I thought I’d share what I found with you! They have all sorts of bulk and canvas bags. And I’m a bit of a bag lady so I like browsing. I wish reusable bags would catch on in this country like wild fire…..maybe in the near future.
I’ve also found if I go to a place like Subway and I can’t finish the sandwich, rather than slip it in the plastic they give you, I can put it in the canvas bag. If it gets messy with food, I just wash it.
Canvas lunch boxes were also sold at Green Alternatives but they weren’t large enough to hold all the food I send my hubby with for his meals. They were big enough for a kid’s lunch though of a sandwich, a piece of fruit and a juice box, and much more durable than the light canvas ones. They are also sold at Eco Bags.
Great idea! Glad I found it.
What do you use to carry your lunch?
