    Comments about SNACK TAXI - OWL & GIRAFFE:

    This is an awesome product I now want more! I use it daily to take snacks or a sandwich to work and have reduced the plastic bags I use. I would love to try the smaller size that is on the Snack Taxi website. It is also very easy to clean both in the sink or in the laundry.

              I love these bags for my children to take their snacks to school in. They are great for crackers/popcorn/chips..... I love that they can go in the washing machine. I love being "green" and not using plastic baggies that go into the garbage every day. It is a cute design, but I hope they come out with a more neutral design that can be used by older children and adults.

                I purchased these because I couldn't stomach sending my 5-year old to school another day with a PB&J sandwich in a plastic bag that would be thrown into the trash. My son thinks the graphics are way cool and couldn't wait for me to start using them. He loves them and now I can feel better about the waste I'm creating via his school lunch.

                        Got these for sandwiches to pack for lunch. Bigger than the other ones out there, so it will hold a larger sandwich. Haven't used it yet, so can't testify to the air tightness. Wish there were other designs rather than giraffes and peace symbols.

                        Comments about SNACK TAXI - OWL & GIRAFFE:

                        I bought three of these and now am trying to justify the cost by using them as chip bags. I really thought it was a good idea and really liked the designs. My biggest problem is that my children are 3 and 5. They usually only want a plain sandwich with nothing that will hold it together, butter, jam, mayo etc. So what happens is the sandwich comes apart in the large sack and they try to piece it back together but never-the-less I usually have parts coming back. The bags are dark so they miss pieces. I will continue to use sandwich bags and containers as they are more confining. Sigh.
