It’s no secret that I am on a mission to reduce our household waste. One big thing on my list of major offenders in this battle, are plastic baggies. I won’t bore you with all of the reasons that one-use plastic items are bad. I’ve been over it many a time before. So, for this post I’ll just say, plastic baggies are no good.
I was given the opportunity a while back to review Wrap-N-Mat sandwich wraps and snack pouches. Now that the craziness is starting to die down around here, I’m finally getting around to posting this. Oh, and about that craziness; I’m pretty sure a lull is temporary, but sure as heck, I’m going to enjoy it while it lasts.
So, back to the product of interest. The Wrap-N-Mat has a great concept: it’s a sandwich wrap and a place in one. You use it to wrap a sandwich by placing the sandwich in the center of the mat, folding in the left and right sides, then folding over the top and bottom. There is a piece of velcro to keep it in place. The snack sack works the same way, but is more generously sized and shaped.
They are made of a cotton and polyester blend and the lining is water proof. I am also pleased to tell you that they are BPA free and they comply with CPSIA lead and phthalate regulations. They are however made in China, but they assure customers that they are not made with child or prison labor. *Edited to add, the ones that I reviewed were made in china. They do offer a made in the USA version. Be sure to make sure you order according to your preference.
They work very well. They are a great size and their sandwich wrap is actually big enough to hold a sandwich, unlike others on the market. I love that they are easier to clean, as the whole thing unfolds to be flat and you aren’t left trying to dig crumbs out of creases. My husband has been using these to take his lunch to work for some time now and they are holding up fabulously, even the velcro! I like them and have been using them in the diaper bag as well to cart toddler snacks around.
