I've always wanted to purchase reusable lunch bags for the kids. I was fed up with the amount of ziplock bags we used and wanted to make a difference environmentally, even if it was in my own little way, one bag at a time.
I was first introduced to these adorable reusable bags at the White Expo Kids a couple of months ago. The store that was selling them ( Down to Earth ) had a wide selection of gorgeous prints that were perfect for snacks, and school lunches. What was meant to be for the kids ended up being mine as well. I started using them at work and the gym, packing snacks such as fruits and nuts for whenever hunger strikes.
