we've been recycling for about 3 years now.
like really recycling.
we have about 2 bags of recycling to every 1 bag of trash.
when lilly started 1st grade, that meant packing lunch for school.
i cringed at how many plastic zip bags i was using and tossing.
so a quick search to the internet found some great ideas!how to make sandwich wraps and dry snack bags.
my feeble attempt to save the world.
a no waste packed lunch.
(and... the wrap can be used as a placemat on the school lunch table :)
ETA: i am not sure why i didn't post these originally (duh!) but here are the links to the tutorials i used for the snack bag and the sandwich wrap. that should answer a few questions. i just used cotton frabric. my wrap was 10"x10" and i used a cut ziplock bag as the liner. that was the safest material for food, in my opinion. dont limit yourself to just these tutorials though. there are tons all over the web. find what you like :) hth!
