If you are getting right into some eco-friendly ideas for your family then take a look at these- I think they are really neat. My lovely friends' shop "Cherish Child" in Mt Maunganui has started stocking these awesome reusable bags, "Lunchskins", to replace the plastic zip lock bags used for snacks, sandwiches and storing little things. They were featured in Oprah's 'O' magazine and one of the amazing things they claim is that in the US they saved more than 120 million plastic zip bags from landfills!
And here's a bonus, Cherish is having a 25% off everything online 2 day sale today (Wed) and tomorrow only ... just enter 25 in the discount box at checkout :)
Here are some of the Lunchskins they've got for sale (click on the pics)
and because it's my friends shop, here's a few other gorgeous things on their website too!
