As summer comes to a close, and school is just around the corner, many parents are kicking into their back-to-school purchasing mode. And one product that is going to be filling the pantry again is plastic lunch bags for all those snacks. It's usually a no-brainer for those of us who send our kids to school with home-packaged lunches and snacks. However, it doesn't have to be a waste of money or un-friendly to the environment.
LunchSkins are reusable and washable packages that are the perfect product for packing snacks for school lunches, or really anytime. We discovered them last fall at the Cherry Creek Farmer's Market, and we are really pleased with how easy and convenient they are. The "lunchskins" are little pouches with a colorful cotton fabric pattern on the outside and a "food safe" polyurthane liner that keeps food fresh for the trip to school. With a velcro flap to keep them closed, they are dishwasher safe and really convenient.
Put LunchSkins on your Back-to-School list.
