Againbags...and a giveaway!

So excited to bring you the first giveaway of 2012! I recently discovered Againbags on the Hudson Valley Local Greenie site and immediately fell in love. The wonderful creator of Againbags was fed up with packing her kids' lunches in disposable sandwich bags and decided to do something about it.

....And so the Againbag was born. A reusable 100% laminated cotton pouch to put your sammy or pretzels or baby carrots in! A strip of velco ensures a tight seal. Easy cleanup just requires a quick wash in the sink or a toss in the dishwasher. 


In variety of colors and patterns, these eco-friendly bags are not only functional, they're fashionable too! Like tupperware but better! 

I was lucky enough to win a set of three Againbags (just by liking Againbags on their facebook page!) and Jenn, proprietor of Againbags, was kind enough to throw in a lunch wrap set as a giveaway on Hudson Valley Green!

  3. These bags are awesome! I put my toddler's 'mum mums' (ie, crackers!) in this bag and I'm always happy to take it out because it looks so chic. Not like those plastic bags... Plus, there's no aftertaste.

    We velcro the top along her seat so she can eat right from it. She knows she's getting a treat when we take out the againbag.... and so are we!

  4. They're pretty and practical, what more could I want?
