Best Waste-Free Lunch Kits and Snack Bags for Back to School

Itzy Ritzy Snack Happened

Itzy Ritzy’s reusable and machine washable “Snack Happened” snack bags are as cute as their name and come in 18 different style options, including basic black, a perfectly preppy pink whale print, and even a blank canvas bag made from 100% organic cotton for kids to decorate themselves. The snack bags are finished with a lead-free zipper and have a PVC-free waterproof interior lining so crumbs and spills stay contained. As a way to raise some funds (and waste-free eco-awareness) for your child’s school, Itzy Ritzy even offers a custom school logo option for an additional charge.

Lunchskins Reusable Bags

We love the clean graphics and the simple lines on Lunchskinssnack bags and sandwich bags, created by three green-minded mommies. The lightweight, food-certified cotton is hand-sewn and printed in the United States, and the bags are lead, BPA, and phthalate-free as well as being grease-proof and moisture-proof. The snack bag style options include polka dots and a floral pattern, while the sandwich bags include several fruit-inspired options and animal choices (5% of the proceeds from the purchase of the crab bag goes to the Chesapeake Bay Foundation). Lunchskins are dishwasher-safe and their durability means that hundreds of plastic bags are saved whenever you use one.

Semilla Snack Circles

With a name like Semilla Snack bags, the company, of course, has snack bags, but we were even more intrigued by their snack circles, with a shape designed to enclose snacks and sandwiches that are more sticky or gooey. The circles are coated with a non-toxic nylon layer to help contain any mess. The cute outer shells are made with a blend of cotton and linen, hemp and organic cotton, or hemp and recycled polyester and feature 16 different patterns including cheerful teacups, waves, and birds and flowers in punchy colors.

    I had great luck at with lunchboxes and healthy snacks with my back to school shopping.

    I’m sad to not see easylunchboxes as a spotlighted product that many can afford (versus a $30 lunchkit for our children). We’ve been using them for over two years and can’t imagine using anything else for our very eco-friendly lunches!
