As part of my ongoing effort to live a more sustainable lifestyle, I have tried to reduce the amount of plastic in my life. I use canvas bags when shopping, cloth produce bags at the farmer’s market and stainless steel water bottles. Neat-os provided the solution to the missing piece of the puzzle, reusable plastic bags.
There are several re-usable plastic baggies on the market, but there are several features of Neat-os that set them apart from the pack:
- Made in California of all American-made components.
- Made of FDA-certified food safe materials.
- BPA, phalate, PVC and lead free.
- Dish-washer safe.
- Can be decorated with fabric markers.
I featured Neat-os in my Holiday Gift Guide, and have been using their resuable snack, sandwich and gallon bags ever since. I have found a host of uses for my bags. In addition to storing snacks and lunch, I have used my Neat-os to hold everything from tea leaves to soap. I have been using my Neat-os sandwich bag to carry baby wipes in my diaper bag for a few months and they stay nice and moist. Other Neat-os fans have reported all kinds of uses for their bags, including using them as crayon holders, make-up bags, party goodie bags and more.
Just one Neat-os bag can replace hundreds of plastic bags. Plastic bags that would otherwise be destined to an eternity in a landfill. Small choices like using reusable bags instead of plastic baggies can have a huge impact on our environment.
Interested in trying out a set of your own? One lucky reader will be receiving a set of Neat-os in the snack, sandwich and gallon sizes.
