Gift Guide: ReUsies Review & Giveaway 12/15 US/CAN

We are all aware now of how much damage plastic has done to Earth. If you are not aware yet, I don’t know where you have been hiding all this time! I try to recycle as much as I can. I’m blessed to have recycling bins in the building where I live. They make it easier for people to separate their containers from the the rest of the garbage. I’ve cut out as much plastic as I can and have switched to reusable bags, bottles, containers, etc. Are you ready to read about the next big reusable thing? Then let’s get to it :)

Review

Sure I’ve cut out plastic bottles and shopping bags from my life, but I’m still guilty of using plastic snack bags! I’ve tried using snack containers, but I hate that once you’re done your snacks, you are stuck with a bulky container. I imagine that most of us carry reusable bottles, so anything in addition is an unneeded extra weight. So to this day, I’ve been using plastic snack bags, because they are easy to bring along and can be tossed afterwards.
I’ve been eyeing ReUsies for a while now and I’ve finally got a chance to review their product. I received a reusable sandwich and snack bags in a Toadstool print. When I got my snack bags, I was surprised how big they were, I imagined them a lot smaller. But when you actually start to stuff them with food, they don’t seem big anymore and fit sandwiches and snacks perfectly. So far, I’ve been using the snack bag daily as it is big enough for mine and my son’s snacks. At first I was only stuffing it with safe dry snacks, but as I got comfortable with carrying it around in my bag, I started putting wet things like baby carrots in. Just to see if the wetness would leak through material, I left the bag lying around for hours. It stayed completely dry on the outside!
It’s super easy to use the ReUsies and after you’ve finished your snack, they won’t take up any space in your bag. It’s also very easy to clean them. They’re washer & dishwasher safe, but I’ve been just washing them in the sink and letting them air dry on the dish rack. For a quick clean, I just wipe the plastic-like material on the inside with a damp cloth.
I love my ReUsies. They are hip, cool and eco-friendly!
