Green Tip #158: Reusable Baggies

reusable baggiesMy husband and I try to make at least one lifestyle change each year in our quest to be environmentally responsible and frugal. Instead of throwing away 2-3 plastic sandwich and snack bags every day at lunch, we bought a few reusable baggies.

The initial cost was high ($6-8 each) but this type of product is often available at a 50% discount through daily deal sites. If you sew, make them yourself to save even more.

We bought two sets; snack size and sandwich size. The interior is vinyl so you don’t have to worry about moisture leaking through and they are machine washable. The fun part is that the bags are available in a wide variety of patterns and colors so you can match your personality.

What is the latest change you made that was “green”?
