-CLOSED- Planet Wise Sandwich & Snack Bags Review & Giveaway from Diaper Safari!



Even though Diaper Safari has been in the cloth diaper business for 11 years, I had just recently heard about them. Diaper Safari has expanded their product line and they now offer an even wider range of cloth diapers, accessories, gear and more! On top of that, they offer FREE SHIPPING on all orders in the contiguous USA! (I love free shipping)  Diaper Safari wants to help customers find a cloth diaper system that will work for their baby and they are committed to offering their customers the highest quality of cloth diapers. Diaper Safari's customer service is easy to talk to and they are very friendly, their website is easy to navigate and they have a good variety of items to shop from on their site  - they really do have something for everyone!  

Recently, I was given the opportunity to work with Diaper Safari and review the Planet Wise Reusable Snack Bag Gift Pack (1 window sandwich bag, 1 snack bag, 1 sandwich wrap)! I was so excited! I am always looking for ways to become "greener" and re-use rather than just throw things away. I have recently been looking for ways to become less dependent on plastic baggies. Planet Wise Sandwich and Snack Bags are a perfect solution!

Diaper Safari let me select my favorite prints and sent me:
  •  1 window sandwich bag in the Lime Cocoa Bean print
  • 1 snack bag in The Owls print
  • 1 sandwich wrap in The Lime Squares print

I was really impressed with how quickly Diaper Safari mailed me the sandwich & snack bags - I got them in 3 days! When I opened the package, I immediately fell in love with them! The prints are vibrant and fun, the design of each bag is great and they seem very sturdy (like they can take come serious toddler use and still look great!).  

I love that the Planet Wise Sandwich and Snack Bags are:
  • Made with FDA Food Safe Material
  • PVC, BPA, Phthalate, Latex and Lead Free
  • CPSIA Compliant 
  • Made in the USA
(That makes me feel really good about using them for little man's food and snacks!)

I have really enjoyed using the sandwich and snack bags over this past week! They have been so handy and convenient to be able to pack up some food and take them along in my diaper bag!

The Planet Wise Reusable Sandwich Wrap was a totally new concept to me. I have never "wrapped" a sandwich before! I have always used plastic baggies or plastic containers to take my lunch along when we go out for the day or just bought food while out shopping. These are definitely some habits that I am trying to change - for financial reasons (since buying plastic baggies & buying food while out isn't cheap) and for eco-conscious reasons (re-using a bag is way better that throwing plastic baggies away). 

At first, I wasn't sure if I was wrapping my sandwich the "right way", but I must have done it correctly, because it closed up nicely with the hook & loop closure. It was actually really neat to use though. Voila!  My sandwich was ready for travel!

I also think that once you unwrap your sandwich, you can use the wrap as a place mat!  It was also very easy to clean. (Yay!) I had gotten mustard on it from my sandwich and I just wiped it clean with a quick swipe of the sponge, ran it under some water and let it air dry. 




 The Planet Wise Reusable Window Bag is a really neat concept for a re-usable bag. I think that it is a great feature for the front to be see-through. It would be especially helpful when you are making different sandwiches for multiple kids (adults too!) - you would be able to see what is inside without having to open it. It's also great to use for things other than sandwiches, like a mini medical kit, a cloth wipe bag, crayons, a safe place for small toys, sliced fruit, cookies or other snacks! 
Some band-aids, Neosporin, and hand sanitizer.
A PB&J sandwich for little man!
I think that my favorite features of this bag are the No Leak Seams and the angled corners! The angled corners are awesome! I didn't have any problems with bits of food or crumbs getting stuck in the corners, because...there aren't any corners! The Window Bag was is just so versatile and so easy to clean (even the peanut butter and jelly wiped right off)! I loved being able to "see" inside the bag and it is a very well made - it never open accidentally in my bag, nothing leaked and nothing got squished in my diaper bag either (not that I had it in-between a bunch of books or anything...just a normal diaper bag with normal toddler & mom stuff)
Home-made zucchini bread! I cut it into bite size cubes for little man.

Snack time at the farmer's market!

Mmmm... Zucchini bread. The Window Bag did a great job of keeping the zucchini bread fresh and un-smashed!

The Snack Bag has pretty much taken up permanent residence in my diaper bag. I love it and little man loves it. I really like that the Snack bag also has the No Leak Design and that the corners are angled for easy cleaning. The Snack Bag is just as sturdy as the other sandwich bags and is the perfect size for little man to hold onto. It would also be a great place to pack crackers, fruit, crayons, or any other small item.


It is great to have when we are out shopping, because it keeps little man entertained! He loves to try and open it, but since the hook & loop closure goes all the way across the bag (also like the Window Bag), he can't get it open (yet). Little man really likes owls right now and he loves to hold the snack bag, point at the owls and go "Hooo! Hooo!" or he will ask for "Owls? Cookies?" when we are in a store. He knows that every day I fill it with animal crackers and he gets some when we are out shopping/driving somewhere/at the park. I think that the size makes is great for portion control for treats and it makes little man happy.     

Hubby was smart and folded the bag over on itself so there was a small opening and little man could reach in to grab one cookie at a time!

I love all three of the Planet Wise Sandwich and Snack Bags! They really have so many uses and I am so happy to be able to re-use them again and again!

Interested in shopping for some Planet Wise Sandwich and Snack Bags for your little one? They are perfect for wrapping up lunches, snacks and anything else you need a baggie for! They'd be so cute to use for your little one's lunch box when school starts again or even to pack a lunch for yourself!
