Intertwined: For All You Snack Fiends

Use and reuse these bags for snacks and organization alike.

BlueAvocado (Re)Zip Snack

$9.99 from One Twine

These Re(Zip) Snack bags from BlueAvocado have taken the concept of the plastic bag and made it reusable and versatile. If you’re a snack fiend, these bags are great for portioning out bulk bin items, like nuts, dried fruit, and granola, that you can take on the go. While personally I’m not particularly fond of healthy nibbles, I can see using these bags to sort out any pre-chopped ingredients when I’m cooking up dinner at a friend’s house. And they’re not just for food — they’d be perfect for organizing the tiny alphabet magnets and doodads my nieces play with, keeping them all in one place. Toss them in the washer when they’re dirty, then line dry them and use them again. Who says it’s not easy being green?

    RE: Valentine chocolates - We are blessed to live in a place with artisanal, organic chocolate makers. The first year my husband bought me a beautiful heart box and selected the chocolates he knew I would like. The box was so beautiful I saved it. Now he brings the box back each year and refills it, which pleases the chocolate maker as well as me. We all win!

    Looks like those bags could make good cosmetic bags, fit the purse and keep lipstick, eye pencils etc all in one place. Could use for laundry bag when washing nylon pantie hose throw in washer. Use for doggie treats when traveling.

    Dose it need to be stylish or is it ok to reuse the every day ziplock bags many times until they fall apart. We buy prepackaged foods with ziplocks at the top these days. I figure the seal is there to be used more than once. Why buy more stuff when we can reuse. To buy more stuff only says to me that people are still willing to spend more $ when recycling is the object. When you buy a re-zip snack bag like above are you able to recycle it when you no longer want it??? Lots of gadgets are a waste because we have everything already in our daily life. It all comes down to aesthetics!!!
