It's almost Earth Day and now is a great time to cut down on planet-destroying waste by investing in a few of these lovely, reusable zippered silicon bags made by Stasher. They are airtight, freezable and washable.
They're offering a 25% discount on all orders placed between now and 4/24. Just enter the enter code EARTHDAY at checkout at stasherbag.com. And shipping is free if you spend $40 or more.
These should go a long way to cutting down on the number of Ziploc-style bags that end up clogging landfills and fouling waterways. The folks at Stasher sent me the two bags above to try out a few months back and I'm happy to report that I like them (or I would not be writing this post...)
They are perfect for snacks, sandwiches and more. On our last vacation, I realized the smaller, snack-sized one was the perfect way to keep my cell phone dry and sand-free. And the larger one held all our sunscreens nicely.
Now I wish Stasher would make them in a few, bigger sizes so I could kick those Ziplocs to the curb permanently. In the meantime, I will just keep washing and reusing the disposable ones for as long as I can. It's not hard -- just flip the bag inside out, hold one hand inside and soap up the outside, then rinse it clean under the faucet and hang over something to dry. I usually put the gallon-sized Ziploc bags over my blender or sodastream to dry while the smaller ones get plopped over a butter knife in the dish drainer or the like.
The point being that this is a company you can feel good about supporting. If you end up buying a few bags, don't forget to enter EARTHDAY when you check out to get 25% off your order.
