Re-Pac Reusable Bags REVIEW AND GIVEAWAY



 For months I have been looking for some high quality reusable baggies to use pack for our lunches.  I feel so wasteful using plastic baggies all the time.  We reuse our plastic baggies for dry food, but it doesn't work for wet or sticky food!  I started using tupperware, but it is so bulky in my lunch bag.  I was thrilled when Ciara from Re-Pac reusable bags agreed to a review and giveaway for our readers here at Go Long! Go Green!

Here is some info on Re-Pac Bags ...

- Made locally in California (GO USA!)
- Bags are money-saving and waste reducing
- Mold, Mildew,Re-Pac resuable bags Water, Stain and Leak resistant
- Lifetime GUARANTEE!
- Certified FREE of lead, BPA, and phthalates
- 100% plastic FREE

They come in 3 different sizes, small, medium, and large and in a variety of patterns and colors!  They are made out of 100% polyester outside and 100% nylon inside.  

Small: perfect for my homemade trail mix
Medium: I used it for my Kashi Pita Chips, but a normal size sandwich would fit perfect in here!

Large: Held my turkey and spinach sandwich with lots of extra space!  The website suggests the large items such as  grape bundles.  

My Review:  I was really impressed with these bags.  They were very easy to wash.  I just tossed them in the wash with my laundry.  Upon close examination, I am quite impressed with workmanship.  You can tell it was made in the USA!!  You know it is good when they back their product with a lfetime guarantee!

Ok, so I know you really want to know how fresh the food tasted after being stored in these baggies!  The real test, right?  I packed my lunch the evening before, about 5pm.  I didn't get into the food until the following morning about 11am.   The pita chips were just as crunchy as they were the night before when I was packing them!  The sandwich was just as fresh and tasty as I imagined!  The final taste test was my homemade trail mix, which I ate about 4pm.  It had been in the baggie for almost 24 hours.  I was really suprised to find everything crunchy and fresh!  I was so impressed with all 3 baggies and their freshness, despite the number of hours in storage.  The baggies require so much less space in my lunch bag too! 

I think I am going to have to order more!!  If you are looking for an easy to use, resuable baggie ... Re-Pac has just what you need!  They would make great gifts or stocking stuffers!!
