These reusable food bags are my favorite new eco friendly product.
In the past few years I have really been making an effort to reduce the amount of plastic in my life. I carry my S’well water bottle everywhere, bring my own bag to the grocery store or out shopping, and I also recently invested in a reusable straw.
I first saw these Colibri reusable snack bags on instagram and was immediately intrigued by the product as they are advertised as a eco friendly alternative to all the too ubiquitous Ziploc bag. I have always felt guilty using Ziploc bags because they seem excessively wasteful, but have continued to utilize them because of the convenience. These Colibri bags serve the same purpose as Ziploc bags and meet Canadian and American standards for food safety. They are cotton on the outside with a water resistant lining. They are machine washable (with low dry), which means you can use them again and again. The bags come in a bunch of different prints and I had to go with the magical unicorn but there are lots of options to choose from. These bags are perfect for on the go snacking or for bringing your lunch to work (you can use the larger size as a sandwich bag) without any of that on the go unnecessary waste!
