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!

This workout DVD was excellent.  if you know me then you know I love Leslie Sansone so I am reviewing her DVD's first for the New Year.  You can find my review of Leslie's other workout video on my Poughkeepsie Journal Blog by clicking on this link

This Walk to the Hits workout went by quickly and it was fun. There were some new moves that I haven't seen before from Leslie; more movement, more fun and it was HIIT - High Intensity Interval Training - which is really ideal for burning fat and losing weight, in my opinion.  The workout features women and men of all sizes.  It's a wonderful workout for advanced workout buffs but it's just as great for someone just starting, all you have to do is not jump around as much...that's the great thing about all of her workouts; they are good for all levels. 

I chose to do the entire workout today which is 47 minutes/3 miles but you have the choice to do it all, 1, 2 or 3 miles. 

Take it from me, this is a must-do.  Loved it!!!!
