ReUsies offers a reusable alternative to plastic sandwich and snack bags. These bags will help to eliminate the estimated 500 billion to 1 trillion plastic bags that are used and discarded worldwide each year. ReUsies are 100% cotton lined with water-resistant nylon (lead, BPA, and phthalate free). They are secured with durable Velcro closures that make them easy to open, yet hard for food to fall out of.
While their original use is to contain snacks and sandwiches, they also make a great holiday item:
Teacher Gift: Wrap a fancy chocolate bar in a ReUsie (teachers pack lunches).
Hostess Gift: Instead of using a cellophane bag, wrap up some cookies in a ReUsie?
Stocking Stuffer: ReUsies make great gifts for friends & family members.
Secret Santa Gift: Choose a unique ReUsie to give to your friends or co-workers.
“I don't know if your house looks like mine on Christmas morning, but we are buried in a pile of ribbon and wrap, much of it isn't recyclable. We would like to challenge people to get creative with their gift wrap this year and choose something that can be useful rather than thrown away." says Karen Whorton, Owner of ReUsies.
Advantages of ReUsies:
-Durable, Long-term Replacement Solution to Plastic Bags
ReUsies are designed with durability and long life in mind. They are made with soft cotton patterns on the outside and water-resistant nylon on the inside, and will last between one-three years.
-Two Sizes for Added Flexibility
These reusable bags come in two sizes, snack (6” x5”) and sandwich (7.5” x 6”) versions. Both sizes can be adjusted to a smaller size by folding up the base of the bag and securing it with the extra Velcro flap on the back.
-Easy to Clean
ReUsies can be machine washed and dried, washed in the dishwasher, or simply wiped clean with a soapy sponge and air-dried.
-Large Variety of Designs for All Members of the Family
ReUsies offers designs for all members of the family ranging from sports and camouflage themes to vintage and retro designs.
-100 Percent Satisfaction Guaranteed
If for any reason a customer is not satisfied with their ReUsies they will receive a full refund.
-A Percentage of Profit Goes to a Good Cause
ReUsies believes in their product and the positive impact it has on the environment. They continue to actively donate a portion of their profits to educational and environmental programs.
-Organic Options and Customization Available
ReUsies has listened to their customers and introduced organic options; additionally customers can now customize their larger orders with a school, organization, or company logo.
In their first year of business ReUsies estimates that, along with their customers, they have kept over 4 million plastic sandwich bags from ending up in the trash. "It seemed odd to have single-use sandwich bags that we throw in the trash every day, when almost everything else these days is multi-use. We reuse shopping bags, water bottles and lunch boxes, yet in this area there is still so much waste,” says Becky Harper, Owner of ReUsies. “We want to have ReUsies right there on the shelf next to the plastic wrap and plastic sandwich bags.”
The company’s goal is to make ReUsies a staple in each American household. As the company continues to grow, they are committed to adding additional designs and products to their selection to offer reusable, waste free solutions for each family.
