Gimme, Gimme!: Wrap-N-Mat Pouches and Wraps
Save money on lunch boxes and plastic bags for your kids with these clever reusable two-in-one food holders
Bonnie Stromme, a mom of four, hiked the Rocky Mountains to discover a greener way to pack your kids' lunches. Lucky for southeast Michigan parents, her inventive Wrap-N-Mat products – which she created after running out of plastic sandwich bags while on a family picnic in Colorado one morning – are just a click away. And they provide a cool, earth-friendly alternative to standard Ziplocs.
These two-in-one reusable lunch pouches and wraps not only hold your child's food; they double as a placemat! These products are a cheaper way to give your child a packed lunch each day – plus the placement means your child won't be putting his lunch on any germ-filled tables at school.
Made from cotton-polyester blend with a food-safe lining, these lunch pouches and wraps are available in different colors and designs. Food stays fresh and no food particles get trapped in the fabric. The inside lining can be easily wiped down or added to the dishwasher to be used again and again.
Purple, lime green and blue are a few of the solid colors choices. For print-crazy kids, pick from teddy bears, multi-colored polka dots and guitars.
Original sized wraps – sized 13-inches by 13-inches are just $8.99 at Wrap-n-Mat.com, while the grande sized wraps, which are 17-inches by 14-inches, sell for $9.99. Large pouches, which hold as much as a sandwich bag, are $9.99, while mini pouches – mini snack bags that are great for toddlers – cost $9.50.
