Englewood, CO, United States, 2011/02/18 - WrapIt! Snack and Sandwich bags are washable and reusable, smartly designed and come in patterns for kids and adults. The Sandwich bag accommodates thicker breads and bagels, the snack bag holds other lunch items and can be used as a plate when open.
Wrapit! joins the line-up of USA made unique solutions in stylish reusable containers for kids and adults.
Looking for a solution to plastic sandwich and snack bags, the owners of Beneterre designed and tested several options with kids and adults. Consumers want a waterproof and greaseproof container that is reusable and easy to wash. Beneterre’s new Sandwich and Snack Wrapit! accomplished this and more.
The Sandwich Wrapit! is a double layer envelope style pouch with a colorful contemporary cotton exterior in patterns for kids and adults and a waterproof nylon interior free from harmful dyes and chemicals. The double fold helps seal in the contents. A pleat at the bottom makes it easy to accommodate traditional and artisan bread types or wraps.
The Snack Wrapit! is a dual purpose product. When open the product can be used as a place mat and when gathered up and sealed in a pouch, it holds a variety of snack items like carrots, chips, fruit and nuts. The pouch design provides some protection for soft and breakable items too. The Snack Wrapit! is also a double layer of patterned cotton and waterproof nylon. It seals with a drawstring.
Each year hundreds of millions of sandwich and snack bags are used once and discarded. According to Harris Poll and Harris Interactive Market Research nearly half (45 percent) of working adults said they’re bringing their lunch to work instead of purchasing it. About three in four parents with children in kindergarten through eighth grade pack lunch for their children while school is in session, and about half do so at least once a week. “Using Wrapit! instead of plastic bags has a meaningful impact on the reduction of fossil fuels and contents to landfills”, says Ann Swanson, Founding Partner at Beneterre. “We designed a product that is easy and fun to use for both adults and kids”.
Snack and Sandwich Wrapit! are available for $8 each online or in Vitamin Cottage by Natural Grocers.
