Meet the Exhibitors: ReUsies - Re-usable Sandwich and Snack Bags

To hear them tell it the two women behind ReUsies were going through a staggering 10 plastic lunch bags per day per family. Too much plastic, they agreed!

They quickly devised a (business)plan to decrease their support of SC Johnson's Pension Plan (the makers of Ziploc) and create an all natural and reusable snack and sandwich bag that was cute and easy to clean. ReUsies are made of 100% cotton and lined with 100% water resistant nylon that's also BPA, lead and Phthalate free. With a secure piece of Velcro to close, ReUsies don't fall open. The bags are machine-washable, dishwasher safe and easy to clean thoroughly by hand. Choose from over 60 styles in two convenient sizes, we think they've succeeded! And we're not the only ones.

The Seattle-based company has been praised for their ingenuity in the children's market where eco-friendly products make an important impact. Imagine junior growing up reusing his lunch bag instead of tossing a handful of plastic into the landfill. The old adage about telling, showing and teaching a child a lesson comes to life at ReUsies. Find up what they're up to here.

Prices run up to $8.75 and will be discounted to Eco-Chic Expo guests.

Thanks ReUsies!
