As time goes on we realize in this house more and more that it is time to start doing our part to protect this planet. Recently I was introduced to a brand called ReUsies and thought wow what a perfect place to start! You see every day we use 2-10 sandwich bags just packing our lunches for school and work. That is a MINIMUM of 360 baggies A YEAR. I decided since my 5 year old most commonly used sandwich bags she would be the one to review them.lol I packed her sandwich in the big one and a snack of Cheetos in the other. Working at the same school which she attends I was able to be there when it was lunch time. ReUsies were actually easier for her to open then the typical plastic sandwich bag. Plus her and her friends are really enjoying the super cute designs ;o)I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using. The people at ReUsies want to help make your New Year a little greener they are offering up a giveaway to my fans. So please make sure to enter on the Rafflecopter below GOOD LUCK.a Rafflecopter giveaway Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
