If you're looking for a reusable bag that is eco-friendly and will save you money in the long run, check out these awesome reusable ziplock bags we LOVE!
Hi all – Mary here!
If you're looking to replace the bulk of your plastic bags with something a little more earth-friendly (what better time to do that than Earth Day?? 🌏)…you'll love these!
In an effort to be a little more environmentally conscious lately and after realizing that we use SO MANY plastic bags in our home, I decided to make the switch from plastic bags to reusable bags.
Many of our plastic bags were getting tossed in the trash and were barely even dirty (they held a few grapes or a bottle of lotion for traveling), yet they still got thrown away! 😳 What a waste…not to mention harmful for the environment since most plastic bags CAN'T be recycled and end up in the landfill. 😩
So I went on a hunt to try and find something that would help us be a little more responsible and care for the environment better.
But…I also wanted to find something that would make my life easier and were dishwasher-safe (who has time to hand wash and air dry a bunch of bags before using them again?? Not me!).
After browsing around for a while, I finally came across found these highly rated Homelux Reusable Silicone Food Storage Bags on Amazon and decided to give them a try…and they are AMAZING!
Here are a few things I love about these reusable bags:
🍽 You can throw them in the dishwasher (on the top or bottom rack!). If you're wanting to get the very best clean, turn the bags inside out before placing them in the dishwasher.
🔥 Safe to use in the oven and freezer! Designed with advanced heat & cold resistant technology (can resist -60℃ to 220℃), you can use these bags in the oven, freezer, microwave, and even for sous vide cooking! (These are a great option to use with the PPP Freezer Menu Plans! 🙂 )
💦 NO leaking! They're made with advanced leak-proof & airtight seal technology so your foods stay fresher longer and don't leak during storage. As you can see from the photo above, the bag is full of water and not a single drop leaked out!
🧴 Perfect for storing non-food items, too! Want to keep things dry at the beach or don't want to worry about toiletries leaking during travel? These work great!
🌍 Great for the environment. They're made with 100% food grade silicone, and are non-toxic, plastic free, eco-friendly, & reusable.
(Yes, sometimes using a plastic bag makes more sense, especially if you're taking dinner to a friend or lunch to the park and don't want to worry about them. However, for many things, a reusable bag is a great alternative for the environment and helps reduce waste.)
Want to try these bags? We have a special deal just for you!
Through 4/28, Homelux is offering PPP readers a 10% discount on their brand of reusable bags. Just head over HERE and add the items you'd like to your cart and the discount will be applied at checkout.
If you're looking to replace just a few bags for everyday use, I highly recommend the 15-piece bundle as it also comes with silicone food covers and beeswax food wraps – which are awesome!
However, the bundle doesn't include freezer size bags, so if you're only going to use these for freezer cooking, consider grabbing the Extra Large Bags instead.
You'll love these ~ and the environment will too! 🙂
TIP – The colored sliders may be a little snug to fit on at first, but they'll get looser over time. Just be sure to start sliding them on the end without the hanging loop on it and end up at the loop. Plus, if you pinch the top of the bags closed while placing them on, they slide on much easier!
