SnackTaxi Review & Giveaway Just In Time For Earth Day

Just in Time for Earth Day Main Street Mama is pleased to once again be working with Momma Lew on this SnackTaxi Giveaway!

SnackTaxi Review & Giveaway!
Hosted by:  Momma Lew’s Blog

It’s amazing how much waste you create when you have little kids.  I probably go through a box of plastic snack bags a month, between snacks and lunches.  Buying snacks while you are out on the run can be not only costly, but unhealthy as well.  I was recently asked by SnackTaxi to do a review of their reusable sandwich sacs.  SnackTaxi is a great solution to bring to work, school, and while traveling.

I loved my Sandwich Sacks!!  First of all, they are handmade in Massachusetts.  How rare is it to find an item that is handmade in the good ole US of A?    They are machine washable and free of lead, phtalates and BPA.

 

We used our SnackTaxi this weekend while we were out for the day.  I filled it up with some pretzels for my daughter.  I couldn’t believe how much it held and how well the velcro worked, so nothing fell out.

 

And look how well a sandwich works!

Do you or your children have food allergies??  Check out how awesome these specially labeled Gluten Free & Nut Free SnackTaxi’s are!  Or you could create your own unique Make Your Own SnackTaxi’s!

Why should you use a SnackTaxi;?  Well did you know that every single day we add 20 million plastic bags to landfills in the US alone?  For every SnackTaxi you use,  you are keeping as little as 1,000 plastic bags out of landfills.

You can order your SnackTaxi’s from their website – www.snacktaxi.com; or you could find a retail location in your area.

SnackTaxi  is giving one lucky winner their own Sandwich Sack!
The Giveaway is for those 18+ and is open to the US & Canada!
