  1. To make snacking on the go more eco-friendly and fast we prepackage our own food in small containers and keep them together in the pantry or the fridge. We still have on the go convenience but without the waste.

  2. These are neat! Would love to get some for our picnics…they’d be great for hummus & pita, egg salad or our “monkey wrap” sandwiches 🙂

  3. To save money and help us make ends meet so I can continue to stay home with our babies, I pack my fiance’s lunch in reusable containers every day, and buy as much as I can in bulk so we aren’t wasting our money on trash…

  4. for a little (almost) zero waste lunchtime inspiration, read Bread and Jam for Francis by Russell Hoban. some of those old books really have lovely ideas.

  5. I love these – so clever! Definitely something that would get some use in our house. Currently, we wash and reuse plastic baggies and large pieces of foil.

  6. We love finding little ways to reduce waste. We’ve found our daughter likes surprises in her preschool lunch, so these would be great for her to open!

  7. I would love to win these!! I’ve been trying to figure out how to ditch the bags without all the wasted space taken up by a half dozen hard plastic containers.

  8. Oh my goodness, these are amazing! I was just talking to my partner the other day about trying to find an alternative to plastic wrap. I can’t wait to get some of these! 🙂

  9. we don’t do school lunches (since we homeschool), but we do takes snacks with us several days a week. these would be an awesome alternative to plastic bags!

  10. We reduce waste by staying home — kids don’t go to school or to daycare. But they still go to summer camps sometimes and need lunches then. Also picnics!!
    .-= Heather D´s last blog ..Books For Sale! =-.

  11. Wow! What a great idea. Wish they would have had something like this when my kids were little – even if they didn’t pack lunch for school (we homeschooled), it would have been great for field trip lunches.

  12. Such an incredible idea. I cringe every time I pull a plastic sandwich bag out of the pantry for my lunch. This would be great to win.

  13. These are beautiful! We have been using pyrex but the glass is H.E.A.V.Y! I’d love to leave some at home and carry snacks in these snack packs!

  14. My hubby is in the military and I ushually pack him some fresh fruit or banana chips for snacking when he is away all day. Also, I ushually make turkey or veggi wraps for my daughter and I am sure she would love these in her lunch box. We hate plastic bags.

  15. Love them and is very convenient for our family now that my daughter started VPK today. Can’t believe it she is so big now and that we are expecting our twins you me born at any second TOO!

  16. These would be perfect for my husband’

    s lunches or for enticing my picky eaters to try out the new foods in their lunch suprises!

  17. I love these wraps! I’m always looking for an eco friendly solution for lunch bags and picnic bags. Lunch suggestion? Extra hummus packed inside your pita to dip your carrots in, nom nom!

  18. Such a great idea! My daughter is only 10months old, but since hubby is a teacher, we still pack lunches during the school year, and I think his turkey and cheese pita would look super cute in these!

  19. These are fantastic in that they contain ZERO plastics like many of the other snackbags (which are still better than using disposable baggies on a daily basis, but if we can use less petroleum then by all means let’s do it!!)

  20. Perfect for funky shaped snacks that don’t fit in the Bento box! My kids go to a green school, and recycle & compost everything they can.

  21. “liked” them and also checked out the website…what a product! thanks again for the opportunity to get them 🙂

  22. These are so cute! My girls would love them in their lunches. They think it’s really neat that we are doing no waste lunches now — esp since their school is so not 🙁

  23. I’ve been searching for the perfect alternative to wasteful baggies and foils, these look awesome for those ‘other’ bits packed in lunches. I’d use them for rice cakes, sandwhiches, snacks….thanks for introducing them.

  24. We have a Wrap n Mat and have been looking for more! This is SO cute!!!! No lunch ideas here – all my daughter will eat is PB&J. Yes – I am THAT mom! (its actually Almond Butter – but she likes to call it PB!)

  25. I have a 20 month old, so we’re not quite ready for school yet, but I pack a lot of on-the-go snacks and found I was wasting so many plastic baggies. The reusable bags are so easy and cute, and I’m so glad for this giveaway, because I haven’t seen any made of these materials!

  26. I would love to win these! Both my husband and I go to college, and it would be great to have an earth-friendly package alternative for sandwiches.

  27. I just bought a set of the Abeego “flats” for covering bowls with – they’re really fantastic! Made in Canada too. 🙂 I would love to have some of the wraps…

  28. The wraps are a wonderful idea! We’d love to have something like this for our favorite veggie and hummus sandwiches.

  29. WOW! We have been a un/home schooling family all of my daughters life but she has decided to try public school this year, & will enter the 6th grade in a week! It would be really amazing to help her get off to a good start in her lunch bag!

  30. I always precut my kiddos’ fruits and veggies for lunch. Even my ten year old agrees that these bags are, “Wicked cool, Mom.”

  31. Now a Facebook fan!

    Certainly unique! I have never seen a concept as cool as this! Definitely the makings of a very creative mind!

  32. These are so cute! We just found a new sandwich recipe with cream cheese, cucumber, avocado, lettuce, tomato, alfalfa sprouts, red onion, cheddar, and muenster cheese. I wonder if it would fit in the wrap 🙂
    .-= Lisanne´s last blog ..beautiful things =-.

  33. I LOVE these wraps and would enjoy a few more. I use them for everything and they work especially good for blocks of cheese. I have sent every kind of sandwich you can think of in these wraps and they also work great for sliced meats, etc to store in the deli drawer in the fridge. Abeego products are awesome!!

  34. My three kids with autism have extremely sensitive taste and can perceive the flavor of those nasty plastic bags requiring me to wrap their lunches in parchment, but these look like a much more useful option! I’d love to win and start the school year out right packing lunches in these. Hope we win!

  35. These are adorable and would make a lovely addition to my son’s lunch on his FIRST DAY OF KINDERGARDEN!!! Also, I liked them on facebook.

  36. I have been looking into these and would LOVE to have some! We homeschool but do lots of outdoor activities and picnicing, these would be perfect for my kiddos lunches!!

  37. These are great! I’ve been thinking how wasteful plastic baggies are as I pack my daughter’s lunch for the sitter everyday. I would love to teach her and my family how to be more eco-friendly. These are so cool!

  38. Those are super cute!! Ive never seen anything like that and Id love to use them for picnics or in my sons school lunch. Even if I dont win them i will definitely be buying them and telling my friends how cool they are! Thanks for sharing. 🙂

  39. Anyone have an eco-friendly way to freeze things like berries or waffles? Glass bowls seem so impractical for this

  40. Would love to try these…trying to figure out how to send snacks/lunch for my son and these might be perfect! Thanks for the chance!

  41. I make my own reusable cotton bags, but these are so pretty! This year is our first try at 100% non-plastic lunches. 🙂

  42. I liked them on facebook, too! 🙂 Looking forward to wrapping one around a peanut butter and honey sandwich one day soon!

  43. Liked the facebook page. I’d love to have some of these, I’m trying to teach my four kids how to be green, this is a perfect example!

  44. I keep thinking I need to try to make something like this, but with school starting last week (and Kindergarten not going so well so far) it would make my life easier to win them : )

  45. I am trying to put together supplies for snack/lunch for my new Kindergartener. There are so many options out there, it gets a bit confusing. Would love to try these! Thanks

  46. Ooh, ooh! Pick me! pick me! *jumping up and down with raised arm*

    I love this idea! Will be great for school wraps and sandwiches.

  47. These are really cool sandwhich bags. They would be great for sliced up fruit or veggies. And you could always do a sandwich in one of course!

  48. I absolutely love these! They are an elegent way to make a statement for big kids as well as small! Kuddos to whoever came up with these! I will be ordering some for christmas goodies to put in the stocking, another great use!I Liked You on Facebook!



  49. These are so innovative. I am always searching for reusable items and this is such an awesome product. My little girl is starting Montessori preschool in two weeks and she has to pack a small snack and these would be perfect!!

  50. How cool! I would LOVE to try them. I currently use anchor hocking glass containers or wax bags…this would eliminate the wax bags…YAY 😉

  51. I like these…I make my own wraps for sandwiches and things…and the kiddos snack bags. These look very “modern” and sophisticated!! I would love to use these in MY lunch!! hehe.

  52. I do not have these but would love to try them. I have other ones similar and love them. I’ve even convinced my husband to give them a try in HIS lunch, as long as they aren’t too girly!

  53. These are great! With school lunches starting soon, I would love to have these be a part of our zero-waste efforts.

  54. Love these! Thank you for letting everyone know about them. We’re seriously considering adding these to our product line…

    A gluten, dairy & egg free sandwich recipe to share:

    2 slices of toasted rice bread – instead of butter, spread with hummus

    2 slices of tomato

    3 slices of cucumber

    as many slices of avocado as will fit

    a pinch of your favourite type of sprouts

    This is my 3.5 year old son’s fav lunch! Yum.

  55. I would love these, they would be a great way of cutting cost of buying bags for lunches and they are not as bulky as a container. my daughter has school this year for the first time and i would love to pack her luch with this 🙂

  56. I have never seen these before and I LOVE them!! I’m not sure I’ll be able to make it to Friday (to see if I win, by chance) before ordering some. 🙂 🙂 Thanks for the fun giveaway.

  57. It makes the food look like little presents. Maybe my son will be more excited about healthy choices if it looks this interesting.

  58. how awesome! I am on a single handed quest to change the schools “throwaway lunch” policy on fieldtrips! Enter me please!

  59. My son is headed off to Kindergarten in a few days and would love to find a little “gift wrapped lunch” in his lunchbox!

  60. These are so cool! We’re always packing lunches (and dinners, and even breakfasts!) around here, these would be awesome!

  61. I would love these for my daughter’s lunch. We currently wrap things in cloth napkins which is not terribly effective.

  62. Ohhh local store has these but I cant afford them, would LOVE to try them out for my son starting kindergarten 😀

  63. I liked on Facebook too, have used a reusable, cotton, plastic lined product, but would love to totally avoid plastic and use these 😀

  64. My little one loves to make his own sandwiches, so I pack sandwich content separately so he can be creative and build the sammy himself. These would be great for packaging his favourite combo: cheese, cucumber, grated carrot, falafel.

  65. I love these little bags! I’m a crafty, Earth-loving mama and it’s been on me (ever growing) craft idea list to make something like this for as long as my kiddos have been alive. But, you know as well as I do, that with little ones, the list of craft ideas gets longer and longer….not shorter 🙁 Needless to say, giveaways like this really help me out! I can’t wait to win and show my girls you can be cute and tree-huggin at the same time!!

  66. Have two children who’ve always been home schooled until this year. It’s been a little tough on the youngest as he is definitely a tenderhearted child. I know these would be a nice lunchtime perk. As the other mommies pointed out they look like gift wrap. 🙂 The oldest would just find it super cool as she is all about being ‘green’ NOW! The little one would just like the unwrapping aspect and if there were a special note tucked inside…wow….talking about infusing the day with love.

  67. High schoolers will appreciate a lunch packed for them too. They tend to “graze” so smallish items packed individually work well for eating outside the lunch room.

  68. How clever! We have had fun with muffins for easy on-the-go lunches: I use a basic muffin recipe and then we add diced ham and peas…. or pepperoni & cheese… or turkey and red bell peppers… whatever we have on hand. My kids like using our mini muffin tin, because it makes nice toddler/preschooler sized bites.

  69. My two children would look like such hipsters if I had these to pack their always wholesome and healthy lunches in! 🙂

  70. These are so cool. I have been trying to switch from disposable wrappers and haven’t gotten a product to do it. Would love these!

  71. Would LOVE to win these! My 3 yr old is at his first day of school today & he attends an environmental-based school. We already use re-usable packaging for his lunches, but it’s mostly plastic. I’d really like to switch to non-plastic & this would be a great start!

  72. We use plastic glad containers instead of zip lock bags but they take up too much space in the lunch box. These are sized just great.

  73. These are. Too cute. I can hardly wait to send Addi to school with her veggie lettuce wrap tucked away for inside one of these!

  74. Wow! These look amazing! I have been looking for something exactly like this! I have some small bpa-free containers that I use and re-use, but this is so much cuter!!!

  75. Oh, these are so awesome! I love that they can be wrapped in different ways. I have “wrap-mats”, but they never fit my sandwiches because my bread isn’t the square kind. Love it!

    However, I’m not going to like them on FB because I worry that every thing I “like” creates another inroad to my privacy… (I know I’m paranoid!!)

  76. I just liked them on fb but I wish there was a “love it” button. I’m going to recommend these to my friends.

  77. I love these for my son’s lunch!! He has food allergies so his lunch always looks different from his friends at school. These would help his lunch look more interesting in many ways & send our the message of caring for the planet to the next generation.

  78. these are brilliant. I’ve been wanting reusable snack/sandwich wraps, and i like that these don’t use vinyl coating, etc. to stay fluid resistant.

  79. We’re always looking for low impact, non-plastic but lightweight ways to carry food with us on outings! Great idea!
