I just ordered some of these toothbrushes because I love the fact that they are made out of recycled materials. Preserve creates products out of recycled materials like yogurt cups and any clean plastic stamped with a #5.
I ordered these super handy and colorful reusable sandwich bags from ChicoBag, they have a velcro closure and the size is adjustable so they are perfect for any snack!
Here is another snack bag option by (re)zip. These are just like plastic baggies but so much better for the environment since they’re reusable! They have the zip lock top and are waterproof. These storage bags are created with FDA-grade material and are easy to clean.
