Recently I stumbled upon a reusable wrap that keeps sandwiches, carrot sticks and brownies completely protected while en route to your work. And it's easy on the eyes... and easy to clean. Waste-free, allergy-free, toxin-free lunch packaging? Could it really be possible? Packing lunches is a great way to save money when mapping out a weekly and monthly budget. But one of the downsides is the potential waste: the plastic wrap, plastic bags, and lunch sacks. The Sandwich Wrap by Kids Konserve eliminates the need for waste altogether, and it even lies flat to become a portable placemat that you can wipe down when you're finished with lunch.
While I don't have kids of my own yet, I do pack my lunches a few times a week, and I love a good picnic or road trip every now and again. I imagine these wraps would be perfect for such occasions, and with warmer weather right around the corner, it seems a good a time as any to stock up. Even if you don't pack lunches for yourself or family members, the sandwich wraps would be a great packaging option for leftovers. The options seem endless; I'm just sorry I didn't stumble upon them sooner!
