snackTAXI Review and Giveaway! Day 7 of Earth Week Giveaway Celebration!

1 Winner, Ends 5/10 @ 10pm EST!




Today is Day 7 of my Earth Week Giveaway Celebration! I hope you have enjoyed learning about these great earth friendly companies all week long. You can check out the other giveaways and reviews on my sidebar at the top of this page. Lots of ways to enter! :)

I have mentioned several times this week about using way to0 many ziplocks or sandwich bags. I am sure that most of us are guilty of this. I was excited to discover a company that is tackling that problem! Let me introduce you to snackTAXI!

snackTAXI makes snackTAXIs. "They are reusable bags for snacks and sandwiches. Use them as you would plastic ziplock bags-they're food movers for a healthy planet!"

Here is some information about the company from their website:


Erin Kelly-Dill says the following: I invented snackTAXIs way back in 2003 as a way to stem the tide of plastic ziplock bags that flowed from our house to the landfill when our 3 kids started school! We pack over 500 lunches every year, and had definitely fallen prey to the easy appeal of the ziplock bag.

snackTAXIs are easy too- really! They are made in our home-based workshop by talented (and fun!) local sewers- we are committed to keeping our business local, and will never outsource our labor.

snackTAXIs are a great alternative to plastic bags and wraps, especially when just one reusable bag has the potential to eliminate an average of 1000 plastic bags over its lifetime!

snackTAXIs are lined with coated nylon, and can be machine washed and dried, or simply wiped clean with a damp sponge.
The above highlighted info was all obtained directly from the snackTAXI website.

snackTAXI offers several different products. They have snack-sacks, sandwich sacks, twice-as-nice napkins, lunch sacks and bulk/produce sacks! They all come in tons of different designs, there is something for everyone. Have a golfer in your house they have golf designs! Have a girl scout in your home, they have special designs too. I could go on and on, but I will just send you HERE to check them all out!

The snack-sacks are priced at $6.95, the sandwich sacks are $8.95 and the twice-as-nice napkins are $3.95. You can buy yours HERE!


The cute snack sacks I received!

I received 2 sandwich sacks, 2 snack sacks and a twice-as-nice napkin to review. They came in various designs (fabric) and are all super cute! I think my favorite that I received is the cupcake sandwich sack. I love cupcakes (especially eating them!) snackTAXI's are well made. You won't have to worry about anything leaking or falling out of them. Just the other day I packed a PB&J sandwich and some grapes in 2 snacktaxis for a car ride for my 2 year old. I liked just throwing them in Emily's bag and grabbing them out and handing them to her when she was hungry. Normally a ziplock will end up with a hole in it and spill all over, plus they are just so much nicer to look at than a ziplock. Emily loved the different designs on the sacks. One of the snack sacks I was sent has owls on it and she just kept talking about owls all afternoon. It was cute! :)



I plan on buying some more snackTAXIs for my family. I would like to have some that are catered to each person in my family!

Who wants to win some snackTAXIs of their own? The kind people at snackTAXI are helping me host a giveaway!

GIVEAWAY: One lucky reader of Money Saving Mama in Michigan will win a set of snack sacks (one snack-sack, one sandwich-sack)! Winner must reside in the U.S.

  6. I am a fan on face book of SnackTaxi's. Have been using them for about a year and love them. My son left his at Sunday School, they all know it is his and it had his name on it, didn't show up, so maybe someone else really liked it too!!
