In the Just Add Cloth household, we pride ourselves on producing as little trash as possible. We use cloth diapers, unpaper towels, cloth wipes and napkins, reusable water bottles, and fabric grocery bags, so we are no strangers to reusable products! From food storage and water bottles, to shopping bags and dryer balls, Reuseit.com has a variety of products that fit well into a green lifestyle. I especially like the Lunch boxes available!
I recently tried out the Large Insulated Zipper-Top Lunch Bag for many of our day long outings. This lunch bag is quite roomy measuring 11″ H x 7″ W x 4″ D. It is 100% made in the USA and has an adjustable strap for carrying.
This lunch bag is deep and has a shallow pocket in the inner lining for a cool pack or food items. This particular bag is the black and slate blue option. The zipper wraps around three sides for maximum access when packing and unpacking the bag.
I have other soft cooler style lunch bags and I really do like this one better. The size and shape is great for water bottles. I can fit six baby bottles of milk in it with ease and still have room to spare. My favorite use for this lunch bag is packing it for an all day outing with the kids. Not only can we fit water and lunch for my infant and toddler in the bag, but the soft structure makes it malleable enough to push into the stroller’s undercarriage.
Below I have snacks for three of us, an ice pack, and a 16oz water bottle.
As you can see, these items only take up about 40 percent of the space. I could easily fit a couple of sandwiches on top of our water, fruit, and veggies.
I also love how well the insulation works. It has been between 90 and 100 degrees every day lately and keeping water cool has been a chore. I like to load up the double stroller and walk 6-7 miles a few times a week. In this heat, we need the water to be cold to not get over heated and this bag works really well! If I add an ice pack to the bag along with a couple stainless steel water bottles, they are still cold four hours later. In fact the bottles still had most of their ice cubes intact so I imagine it could keep them cool for at least eight hours.
The Reuseit lunch bag is higher quality than others I have tried, so I think the $19.95 price tag for this bag is spot on. Also, the bag is lead, BPA, and Pthalate free! Not only do you reduce your trash by using reusable lunch bags, but it saves you money over time as well. Plus, Reuseit.com donates 1% of its sales to environmental organizations. It is a win for all!
