snackTAXI review and giveaway...


I am so excited that I got the chance to review products by “snackTAXI.” What is snackTAXI? It is an alternative to plastic Ziploc bags used when packing snacks and sandwiches for lunches. snackTAXIs (formerly happy-sacks) were invented by a mother of 3. snackTAXIs have 100% cotton exterior and are lined with nylon that has a polyurethane coating on the underside. (the side that doesn’t touch the food inside the sack). Both fabrics are free of lead and phthalates.

I got the chance to review snackTAXI’s sandwich sack, snack sack, napkin, and produce bag. I am sure I am like most moms; I hate to use those plastic Ziploc bags for lunches and know that they are being thrown away at the end of one use. Not only that but I know that they are bad for the environment. I have been looking for an alternative for a while now and received an email from Business 2 Blogger for a chance to review these products for free.

What do I think of these products? I love them! What an excellent way to help the environment and they are super cute! They are easy to use and easy to clean. They can be machine washed and dried, or simply rinsed with water and air dried. My little girl who is in the 1st grade loved them. She loved the one with the dots the most. I think it makes lunch time more fun to have such cute sacks in her lunch. As for the napkins they do a great job of cleaning up spills. Especially the fun ones made by my almost 4 year old. I normally don’t pack a napkin in my little girl’s lunch but she has insisted that I do so now.


I have yet to try to produce sack because I have not been on a store run as of yet but I am looking forward to giving it a try also. So if you want to try this product go to snackTAXI.com. Not only will you be saving the environment but you will also save money by buying these because they are reusable. No more throwing your money away buying Ziploc bags.


So I asked snackTAXI if they could send me something to giveaway because I am so excited about their products. They did and now one of my lucky followers has a chance to receive a snack sack and a sandwich sack pictured below...
