We love products that are not only stylish but also functional and eco-friendly. Mitz Accessories is committed to environmentally friendly practices and supporting companies that do the same. Below you’ll find a list of our favorite reusable lunch items as well as our favorite DIY reusable sandwich bag patterns.
#1) S’well Water Bottles
Reusable stainless steel bottles from S’well have a sleek shape and come in beautiful, fashionable patterns. The greatest feature of these bottles is that they keep hot beverages for 12 hours and cold for 24.
We love the sweet, colorful designs of these reusable snack bags! Each bag replaces at least 500 disposable bags and at ~$9 on Amazon Prime are as economical as they are eco-friendly.
When we first heard this was a glass water bottle we thought it would easily break. Lifefactory’s design incorporates an exterior silicone sleeve that helps prevent breakage. Brilliant and stylish!
We first saw these bags at Area Kids in Brooklyn, a hip, urban toy store filled with creative toys and one-of-a-kind cool gifts. Since the store is bag-free, they sell the Baggu bags at cost to their customers. We use this as a catch-all for lunch bags and papers and just about everything you need to grab on your way out the door. Bonus: it folds up SUPER small and first into a tiny bag for easy purse and backpack storage.
Every parent with an older baby knows how easy throwing a food pouch in your diaper bag can be. While we love the convenience of the store-bought pouches, we didn’t like the disposability. These pouches save money and we found they were great for feeding kids (and adults) things like yogurt and smoothies on the go.
We’re obsessed with modern designs with quirky pattern names like ‘Bike Lane’ and ‘Sweetheart.’ A modern take on the traditional neoprene lunch bag.
