My friend Michy bought me two SnackTaxi sacks, one sandwich sized, one snack sized. Snack Taxi sacks are essentially reusable sandwich baggies. With fun fabric designs on the outside and a nylon coating on the inside, they can be used over and over. They are safe for the washing machine (though i often just turn mine inside out and use a sponge). They have a velcro flap that allows for a fair amount of give in packing.

It made me realize how much i love the reusable bags! It felt so wasteful to use a regular baggy!
The cost of the sandwich sized bags are around $9. According to Target, a box of 225 Ziploc baggies is around $6, so depending on how often you use it, it may take a year or more to be financially more worthwhile, however environmentally the results add up more quickly. Also, your lunch looks more fun, how cool is that?
