I wrote this review on another blog before but I wanted to add it to this one because I really do love this item.

Okay.. it's time to do a review on a really, really cool item and a fantastically cool company. Let me tell you a little bit about SnackTAXI. Their mission is to create fun and friendly items that make it easy for everyone to move their food in sustainable style.

Here are some the advantages as listed on their tags of the Sandwich Sacks.

  • Machine washable - and it's true – I washed mine and it's still in perfect condition.
  • Their materials are free of lead, phthalates, and BPA – hooray!!!
  • The US alone adds 20 million plastic baggies to landfills every singe day – These fashionable little bags help to cut back on plastic bag usage.
  • Each reusable bag you use keeps as many as 100 plastic bags out of the waste stream – Hooray SnackTaxi!!!

I tested out my SnackTAXI sandwich sacks several times in the last few weeks. I brought everything from sandwiches to pretzels to healthy snacks and everything in between and I've been very happy with the quality, the lightness, and the fact that it is washable. It also helps that they are very stylish. All in all, I love my sandwich sacks. I may be trying other products of theirs in the future so stay tuned.

  You go SnackTAXI! Way to go!!! Check out the website where they have other products and all the wonderful designs and patterns for adults and kids.

This is from their about us page:

I invented SnackTAXIs way back in 2003 as a way to stem the tide of plastic ziplock bags that flowed from our house to the landfill when our 3 kids started school! We pack over 500 lunches every year, and had definitely fallen prey to the easy appeal of the ziplock bag.

SnackTAXIs are easy too - really! They are made in our home-based workshop by talented (and fun!) local sewers - we are committed to keeping our business local, and will never outsource our labor.

We hope you'll enjoy using snackTAXIs as much as we enjoy making them!

 I woke up one morning my weight loss and getting fit journey and got on the scale to find that it was higher today than yesterday.  I've been counting calories each day and working out, needless to say I felt let down.  I know that focusing on a number is counterproductive to the mindset I have worked so hard to achieve.  In the past I weighed myself daily, and I may do that again in the future. I truly believe if you are someone who doesn't allow it to affect your moods, then it's great. I aspire to be like you. For me, the problem is weight loss varies significantly, depending on how much I exercise, muscle vs. fat, how much salt is in or on my food, water intake and so many other variables.  

In the past, after my illness, if I lost a pound, I ate to celebrate.  If I gained a pound, I ate out of disappointment. Happy - eat, Sad - eat - eat, eat, eat. With my awakened realization back to well-being, I know if I am eating healthful and working out, it's all good.  If I do not see a deviation on the scale, one week, I have to ascertain why.  If we know we are doing all the right things, then a scale shouldn't matter. Right?  Logically yes, emotionally is another story because I'm a little perturbed right now. Usually, I'd say the heck with it and eat junk food but not today.  I am going to continue my journey on the path that leads to a healthier, happier, and more energetic me. My self esteem will not be determined by a piece of equipment that reads out numbers. If I'm not eating healthy I expect the number to go up.  

I exercised since I was a teenager.  I usually am very health conscious. The past year and ½ it's been difficult.   Today was still an excellent eating day for me.  I didn’t allow it to get to me this time.  It’s only a number and I know I’m doing everything right! Bravo to me!!!!!!!

I'm not saying, by any means if you weigh yourself everyday to track your results that you shouldn't. I'm saying that we need to keep it in perspective and know if we are doing the right things then the weight loss and positive outcome will follow.

How are you doing?  Does the scale play a part in your progress? Does it hurt your progress or make it better? Think about it.
