About Mama Luvs
“We are two Seattle area moms with a collection of five kids, trying to make a difference! After years of packing snacks and lunches in plastic baggies, we realized we needed an option that was better for our kids and our planet. We realize it’s easy to get overwhelmed, but this is one small step in the right direction! Everyone can do something… this is our small contribution!”
With a daughter in school that needs both a morning snack and lunch packed for her five days a week, you can only imagine how many plastic bags that totals out to be at the end of the week. I had purchase some reusable snack bags from a school fundraiser last year, excited to start doing my part to be more eco-friendly in that area of life. However, the bags became worn out very quickly, the velcro detaching from the fabric and stitching started to come undone. I eventually lost my enthusiasm and resolved the issue by just going back to plastic bags. Like most children, as my daughter got older her appetite increased, I was packing more food in her lunchbox, resulting in having to use significantly more plastic bags. I decided that it was time to do a little research and seek out the most eco-friendly alternative that didn’t cost me an arm and a leg. That is when I discovered a wonderful company calls Mama Luvs, whom sells stylish, efficient and affordable reusable fabric bags. All of their bags are also water-resistant and contain BPA-free lining.
I absolutely love the Mama Luvs sandwich wrap and so does my daughter. No longer must I attempt to squish a sandwich into a small plastic bag, I can simply adjust this wrap to fit properly. All my daughter has to do at lunch time is unwrap her sandwich and she has a little mat to eat off from. This is such an ingenious product and has completely changed the lunch experience for my child.
We also had the opportunity to review a small and large reusable bag and they are simply amazing! Not only are they available in stylish and fun fabrics, but they are fantastic quality! The velcro has been secured extremely well and the actual bags are very well sewn. One problem that I can foresee that would have new customers second guess switching to reusable bags is whether they can actual secure and hold snacks. The answer is yes, the velcro does a fantastic job staying shut and keeping snacks contained within the bag. You also don’t have to worry about making sure it’s completely sealed, as you do with plastic bags. Maybe it’s just me, but I always seem to have the hardest time shutting Ziploc bags and it take at least 2 or 3 attempts! There are so many positives when you switch to reusable bags, ones that greatly out way the alternative. You are doing your part to put less waste into our landfills, plus you get to pack your lunch and snacks in style!
