SnackTAXIs are easy to clean. Most days, you can simply rinse them out and air dry. Stubborn peanut butter drippings may require gently scrubbing with a soapy sponge. You can also machine wash and dry them. They are durable enough to withstand machine washing but will last longer with hand washing. About the Manufacturer
Erin Kelly-Dill invented snackTAXIs as a way to stem the tide of plastic ziplock bags that flowed from her house to the landfill when her three children started school. Her family packs more than 500 lunches each year and had fallen prey to the easy appeal of the zip-lock bag. Erin started her company as a home-based workshop in Plainfield, Massachusetts, and continues to manufacture locally.
Using containers like SnackTAXIs in place of plastic baggies does the planet a favor. Yes, plastic sandwich and snack bags are super handy when you're packing lunches. But consider how many bags you use in a day, a week, a month, a year. Think about how much money you're spending on something that just gets thrown away.
The average American family discards 1,500 plastic bags each year. As a nation, we throw away an estimated 100,000,000,000 plastic bags annually. Worldwide, it's more than 500 billion!
Think about what happens to those bags after you've tossed them out. A typical sandwich bag can take up to 1,000 years to decompose. As it breaks down, it releases hazardous petroleum by-products into our soil and waterways, which become part of our food chain. We are passing on a contaminated planet to our children and grandchildren—simply for our own convenience.
