I’m obsessed with reusable bags. I gave up plastic sandwich and snack bags over a year ago, and never looked back. My kids have been using them in their lunches, and surprisingly they always bring them home. I’m always expecting at least one to go missing but my kids have done a great job in bringing them back.
I got the opportunity to try out LunchSkins reusable bags, which come in three sizes: snack (6.5 x 3.5 inches), sandwich (6.5 x 6.5 inches) and sub (8 x 7 inches). They’re a little different from other reusable bags. They’re made from a thick cotton material with a polyurethane liner that feels a bit more stiff than other bags, but after a few washes they are supposed to soften up. And speaking of cleaning, these bags can be washed in the dishwasher. Just turn them inside out and place in the top rack.
Another thing that makes these bags special is the nameplate. Kids can write their names on the bag with a permanent marker (or you might have to help if your kids are too little to do this) to personalize it and remind them that the bags need to be brought back home (and not end up in the trash).
LunchSkins bags are BPA and phthalate-free and made in the US (the fabric comes from a family-owned business in Europe), plus they’re grease proof and moisture proof – perfect for keeping leaking peanut butter and jelly sandwich spills. Plus, the owners of LunchSkins (who go by @3greenmoms on Twitter) are dedicated to reducing the carbon footprint of their business through practices such as using minimal packaging from recycled paper for shipping.
Do you have reusable sandwich bags? What do you use them for other than food? We’re starting to use them for the boys’ art accessories and Lego sets.

I received a set of LunchSkins to sample for this review. However, these opinions are my own. I was not otherwise compensated to write this blog post.
