SnackTAXI Review and Give Away

Thanks to the awesome folks over at Business2Blogger, CrAzY Working Mom has teamed up with snackTAXI for an awesome give away! If you are interested in doing product reviews and haven't signed up with Business2Blogger then you are missing out, my friend! There are lots of great opportunities to be had. It's a great new company that levels the playing field for all bloggers by putting you in direct contact with the companies in which you are chosen to do reviews! So, go sign up now and then follow them on facebook and twitter as well.

Now on to the featured product: SnackTAXI.

As a working mother of three we're always on the go. I'm constantly packing snacks, lunches, etc for someone in our household. During the week, my 1st grader and husband both require a lunch to be packed on most days. I usually bring a microwaveable dinner to the office with me, but on those rare occasions I want a sandwich, that's three lunches I have to pack. Usually the kids take goldfish, cookies, etc with them when we go on trips, church, and the likes during the week. Needless to say we go through A LOT of plastic bags. In our constant quest to become more environmental friendly, or "green" if you will snackTaxi seems to be the perfect solution! They are reuseable bags for snacks or sandwiches that are made of fabric. You would use them just as you would a plastic bag, only they are much safer for the environment and lighter on your pocketbook!

On the About page, Owner Kelly Dill explains how the company came about:
"I invented snackTAXIs way back in 2003 as a way to stem the tide of plastic ziplock bags that flowed from our house to the landfill when our 3 kids started school! We pack over 500 lunches every year, and had definitely fallen prey to the easy appeal of the ziplock bag.


snackTAXIs are easy too- really! They are made in our home-based workshop by talented (and fun!) local sewers- we are committed to keeping our business local, and will never outsource our labor."

SnackTAXIs are lined with coated nylon, and can be machine washed and dried, or simply wiped clean with a damp sponge. They come in a wide variety of colors and patterns. You can click here to see the many different patterns.

I was sent a snack sack as well as a sandwich sack (pictured left) for review.  Immediately my 7 year old daughter was excited to be able to have a unique product in her lunch.  I packed her sandwich in the sandwich bag and chips in the snack bag.  She came home telling me how everyone asked her if her mom made those for her.  I only wish I was that crafty!

This is an awesome product and I can't imagine why I'm just now hearing about it!  But, I am glad to know that it's out there and can assure you that I will be having to get more so that all three children have their own snackTAXI bags.  If you're interested in getting your own SnackTaxi bags, you can click the website to purchase OR enter to win a set right here!   Details below:

I will be giving away a sandwich bag, snack bag, napkin, and produce bag, a $25.80 value to a lucky CrAzY Working Mom reader.  All you have to do is hop over to the snackTaxi website, take a look around, come back and tell me your favorite design in a comment below.  One winner will be chosen randomly.  This contest will be open from  Wednesday, March 10 through Wednesday, March 24, 2010 (midnight CST).  Since I am responsible for shipping of the product, I must limit this contest to US Residents only.
