Itzy Ritzy

IMG_1748At Itzy Ritzy, they believe parenting in style is possible. Their modern collection of baby toddler and lifestyle accessories provides smart, attractive solutions to everyday challenges, from carrying heavy car seats to keeping school snacks under eco-friendly wraps. They tread lightly on Earth with environmentally conscious, no-waste solutions. Through it all, they keep style top of mind, designing chic prints you won’t find anywhere else in a confection of eye-catching colors.

I recently got to try out the Snack Happened Mini Reusable Snack Bag. They are sold in 2-pack of the same fabric. Best of all, they are reusable, machine washable bags made with an FDA approved, BPA-free machine washable lining. They measured 7-inches by 3.5-inches. This means they are perfect not only for a snack, but I’ve also used it to hold my cellphone, license, cash, and a credit card! Hoot is an adorable owl print too, but they come in all sorts of prints. They is literally one for everybody! You can machine wash in cold water with like colors, no bleach, and line drying recommended. The exterior of this nack bag is 100% cotton, with a zipper closure and PVC free waterproof lining.

I really like this snack bag, because it doesn’t look like a snack bag! It has so many more uses than just that too! I love that it is washable too! I highly recommend!

Wrap-N-Mat

IMG_1650Are you frustrated with your kids brown bagging their lunch and all the waste that is associated with that? There is nothing worse than seeing how many plastic baggies you go through a month when the kids are in school! (Or when you have a husband who takes their lunch every day!) That is where Wrap-N-Mat comes in.

Wrap-N-Mat Products are unique in that they are the original re-usable food wrap and placemat in one. They use a food grade plastic for our products because:

* the lining keeps more AIR OUT than fabric only- ultimately keeping the food fresher
* the lining is food safe, free of lead, phthalates, Bpa and PVC
* the lining is porous free so no food particles can get trapped in the fabric
* the lining wipes down easily after each use without having to be inverted to clean

As a mom, I love them. They are easy enough that both my kids can use them by themselves. I love that they are easy to keep clean. Most of all, they actually have boy designs! You wouldn’t think that would be a big deal, but finding non-girl things is actually a lot harder than you think! My kids also eat on their desks at school for lunch (we don’t have a cafeteria), so this helps keep the germs from their desks off their food!  I love that they come in various sizes, so that you can easily wrap a sandwich or some chips or some fruit!    I also love that they are made here in the US.

If you are trying to make taking your lunch less wasteful, definitely check out Wrap-N-Mat!

Bobble

bobble_lg_magenta_385x650Bobble is a stylish, reusable bottle that filters water as you drink. It uses an ingenious replaceable carbon filter to remove chlorine and organic contaminants from your drinking water. Bobble is intended for municipal tap water making water better with every sip. It is also a sleek alternative to single-serve plastic water bottles which harm both the earth and your wallet. Every filter equals 300 single-serve bottles you have saved from the landfill. Bobble is free of BPA, Phthalates and PVC.

Bobbles are one of those bottles that everybody wants to know where you got it from, because it looks so different. The bobble is also easy enough that both my kids (9 and 5) are able to use it without any difficulty or help from me. Bill is fan because the filters come in all different colors, so he’s not stuck with pink! I love that it saves me money from buying water bottles!

If you need a new water bottle, I highly recommend the bobble!
