What makes us different?
We ONLY use 100% Certified Organic Cotton. It's important to us to consider not only the end (being a reusable item) but the beginning as well. By NOT using toxic chemicals to grow organic cotton means fewer poisons contaminating the soil, air, water, food supply & the farmer & your family.
We pre-wash the cotton to pre-shrink it before cutting. We do this so you don't end up with a bag that's puckered (where the cotton is smaller than the nylon). ELG will look just as great after washing as before. Yes, it's an extra step but we think you are worth it!
The 100% ceritified organic cotton is fully certified to GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standards) and is also certified Fair Trade and CPSIA (Consumer Products Safety Commission Improvement Act) compliant. Learn more about organic cotton.
The liner is made of nylon with a polyurethane coating to be resistant of water, stain, mildew and rot.
All materials are lead, phthalate & BPA free.
How easy are these to clean?
Designed for easy clean up!
- Machine washable & dryable
- Hand wash, line dry
- Damp cloth wipe
The wraps & bags open completely so no crumbs are left hiding in the corners. If using a machine, just fasten teh tabs down so they won't attach to other items in the laundry.
Don't worry about messy sandwiches - we've had pb&j sandwiches; honey & banana sandwiches even large sandwiches with lettuce that likes to spill. The Sandwich Wraps hold it all in without any leakage - we've even tossed it around for testing!
Made in Michigan!
All eco lunch gear products, including our reusable snack bags are made in Northern Michigan, USA - we don't outsource any of our items. There is a great group of talented & fun women working hard at making quality products that you will enjoy and feel good about using. We strive at keeping our carbon footprint to a minimum.
What can I put in the snack bags?
You can put anything in the snack bags that you would put in the plastic baggies except liquid type foods. Here are some of the items that the bags have held: grapes, veggies, peach slices, cheese, apple slices, chips, graham crackers and granola. A few reusable snack bags and some imagination can make your lunch a lot of fun. They have also been used for non-food items such as ipods, smart phones, stacks of credit cards & frequent shopper punch cards. We use ours in the refridgerator to hold chunks of cheese. I carry a sandwich wrap in my purse for those times when I need a 'doggy bag' at restaurants. The snack bag is the size of a plastic snack baggy & the jumbo snack bag is the size of a plastic sandwich bag. The jumbo bag is great for bulky food items like grapes & chips. It can also hold a sandwich.
What is your return policy?
Quite frankly we have had only one return in the years we've been open. We like happy customers and will work hard at making you comfortable with your purchase. If you have any problem with your purchase please contact us immediately so we can take care of it and make it right for you. Even if it's just to change the fabric choice! Please view our Policies page for more information.

I love my eco wraps and bags. I purchased 2 of each and have been using them for several months. Not only do I feel good about not using plastic baggies any longer, I love that the sandwich wrap can hold the large size breads I often use. The wraps launder beautifully and have held up great! I am very happy with my purchase!!!!
