Just a quick little post today.

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.

As part of my plan to get healthier, i've been religiously bringing fruits and veggies to eat at work, and using these bags all the time.  For some reason i couldn't find one this morning and i had to use a regular ziploc style bag.

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?
