snackTAXI Review & Giveaway - Closed



Winner selected by Random. org Congratulations. I will be contacting you by email.



Clip from snackTAXI owner… I invented SnackTAXIs way back in 2003 as a way to stem the tide of plastic ziplock bags that flowed from our house to the landfill when our 3 kids started school! We pack over 500 lunches every year, and had definitely fallen prey to the easy appeal of the ziplock bag.
SnackTAXIs are easy too - really! They are made in our home-based workshop by talented (and fun!) local sewers - we are committed to keeping our business local, and will never outsource our labor.
We hope you'll enjoy using snackTAXIs as much as we enjoy making them!
Erin Kelly-Dill, Owner
 
The exterior of a snackTAXI is comprised of 100% cotton, and the interior is lined with polyurethane coated nylon. According to the most recent information from the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act's website (the CPSIA deals with the safety of items used by children), these materials have been found to be inherently free of lead of lead and phthalates, and therefore do not require testing. Our nylon has been tested, however, and confirmed to be lead, phthalate and BPA free! (from snackTAXI)

How do you care for snackTAXIs?

It's anything goes when it comes to washing your snackTAXI. They can be machine washed (we recommend unscented detergent) and dried or simply rinsed with water and air dried. As with anything that gets washed, they will last longer with hand washing and air drying, but they are quite durable any way you wash them!
We also recommend emptying them after each use to prevent food oils from being absorbed by the fabric, which happens over time. (from snackTAXI)

I just received these in the mail the other day and was pleasantly surprised. I have already used them in my daughters lunch and she even loved the new sacks. I love the designs that I received not to mention the variety of designs that you can choose from on their website. I was sent the cute owl sandwich-sack and a cute animal print for the snack-sack. This is also a great way to go green and help the environment. You can even use these for more than just snacks since it has an easy velcro closure to help keep any item in the sacks.

                                                 Snack-sack
                                                 Sandwich-sack

Buy: You can go here to buy your own snackTAXI snack-sack for $6.95 and the sandwich-sack is $8.95.
