Snack TAXI review & giveaway

Thursday, December 17, 2009




In order to save some money (we're savin' it to pay the bills and credit cards - gasp!) sometimes I packed lunch or dinner for my husband. He works in shift so sometimes i packed him lunch if he gets the morning shift or I packed him dinner if he works the late shift. He rides his motorcycle to work so a lunch box is not really convenient to him as he could only carry a medium backpack when riding his motorcycle and a lunch box is too bulky. So one of the option is to bring him something smaller like a ziplock bag with sandwiches or bread inside. But I actually hate to use ziplock bags because well...they're plastic. And i've been trying to cut plastic usage in my household in order to live in a more earth-friendly environment.

And then I came across Snack Taxi, a brilliant invention from Erin Kelly-Dill.
Snack Taxis are reusable bags for snacks and sandwiches. Erin invented snackTaxis in 2003 as a way to stem the tide of plastic ziplock bags that flowed from her house to the landfill when her 3 kids started school. She pack over 500 lunches every year and had definitely fallen prey to the easy appeal of the ziplock bags. She then made snackTaxis to replace the use of plastic baggies.




I'm very thankful to be able to receive a set of SnackTaxis. And even more excited to learn that SnackTaxi were featured on Oprah! So that means this product is uber-cool, right?
I received a set of one sandwich sacks and one snack sacks. The presentation is great and the first thing I noticed is the quality of the fabric used. You can tell just by looking at it that the quality is really good. The craftsmanship is very neat and it has a clean look to it.
The exterior of a snackTAXI is comprised of 100% cotton. And then they are lined with a waterproof material that consists of nylon with a polyurethane coating. The nylon is free of heavy metals (including lead), phthalates, PBBs, and PBDEs.


Look at it, isn't it perfect for an earth-friendly gift or stocking stuffer option? ;p

Snack taxis are a great alternative to plastic bags. I have been using it to pack sandwiches and breads for hubby. I have also been in a short weekend holiday a couple of weeks back and the smaller size snack bag is really useful, I used it to pack our favorite snacks which is Chitato potato chips and Pringles so we can munch on it in the car during the trip. I even used it to sneak some crackers and chips when we went to the cinema to watch movies (here in my country you're not allowed to bring food or drinks from outside the cinema) but with the help of snackTaxis now I can bring my own snacks ^o^



SnackTAXI have many options of fabric patterns to choose from, and i mean MANY. There is a pattern for every one in your household. And they add new fabrics every month!
They also sell produce sacks, lunch sacks and cute napkins. They also offer discount if you buy in big volume (starting from 12 sacks and up).

Things I love about SnackTaxi are : They made of fabric instead of plastic, they are waterproof, they come in many cute designs, their size is perfect and the fact that they are easy to clean. If it gets dirty then you can just wash them. You can machine washed and dried them or simply rinsed with water and air dried. And 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!
