Ditch the plastic sandwich bags and give the kids’ lunch boxes an eco-friendly makeover…

Teaching kids to be environmentally educated is a parenting must, but how can we really drive the message at home, without resorting to running a polar bear breeding programme or persuading the kiddos to go vegan? Baby steps, people – let’s start with reusable sandwich bags and food wraps.

We’ve been tracking down the nature-happy lunch bags and wraps that aren’t only jazzy looking, but really do pack a ‘ditching the plastic’ punch on a daily basis. Plus, think about how much you’ll save since these bags and wraps can be used over and over again after a quick wash. This kind of going green is sure to prove way more simpler than getting the small ones to actually eat their greens! Here’s how your family can help save the planet, one little reusable plastic bag at a time…

This small find has made a big difference to our lunch box wrapping ethos!

Living as plastic-bag free as possible is much easier when sandwiches and snacks can be wrapped with LunchSkins.

Super-cute and dishwasher-safe, these bags are easy to clean, but the only downside is that they aren’t available from any retailers in Singapore. But, we have found you an option for international delivery though, woohoo!
