Of course you already use snack bags for crackers, grapes, sandwiches and carrots. What about squishy foods? Or food that needs to stay fresh in the fridge for a few days?
I still use Rubbermaid, Tupperware, whatever brand makes hard-ish plastic containers.
Stainless steel and glass are great alternatives to Rubbermaid types of plastic. Since they can be very expensive, I am phasing my replacement of containers slowly over time.
This one I found on Amazon for just under $8.
It holds about half a cup, great for kids lunches and other snacks on the go. There is no rubber-like seal, so it's completely plastic-free. It has proven difficult for the little hands in my house to open because of the snug seal and slipperiness of the metal.
While shoved in my tote bag, there's no danger of my raspberries becoming sauce before it's snack time.
So far I hand wash the container, which is extremely easy being stainless.
Do you have any favorite types or brands of reusable non-plastic containers?
Knitters are the best! I knit badly, but I love to sew lovely bags to keep their projects, needles and hooks in order. I also teach sewing, and you can find many sewing resources here. Welcome to my blog Dancing Threads RI.
