Hello out there. I'm new to this world, so forgive me for any fauxpaus I may bring. I'm looking for wax paper baggies for sandwiches. I have heard they exist, but have not had any luck finding them in my area (NC). If any one knows where to purchase, would you please share with me. I have tried using wax paper to wrap my sandwiches, but the bread seems to dry out. I'm hoping a wax baggie will help retain the freshness of the bread. Plastic is headed out of my life, if at all possible. When I look around my house and see that my meds are in plastic containers, my make-up is in a plastic tube, my soap is in a plastic bottle, and on and on, I'm wondering if this is possible. Any suggestions are very welcomed.
Thanks in advance for your help.[Image Can Not Be Found]
Hi. THere are wax paper baggies, but I recommend reusable cloth baggies. Here is a brand of wax paper baggie:
But keep in mind that most wax is paraffin, which is a petroleum product.
Here is a sandwich bag that is wax-free and petroleum-free. I don’t know what the coating is, so I emailed the company tonight to find out:
And here is my post about reusable cloth sandwich baggies. There are many choices to choose from:
Recently, I've been trying to get away from using bags in general… regardless of what they're mad of… they're just a pain to wash and I haven't found anything that really keeps food fresh. Instead I've got a bunch of ceramic, glass or metal containers with lids, and for me, it's much easier to use them because I can just toss them in the dishwasher with everything else. Most of my containers do have plastic lids, but since I got them second hand at the thrift store I figure at least it's not new plastic. And I think if you're not as cheap as I am you can buy containers without plastic lids. I have a bunch of Pyrex things with glass lids that I use in the refrigerator, but they don't work well for things like bringing a sandwich for lunch.
Some of the If You Care products are being re-branded as Beyond Gourmet. I don't know if the sandwich baggies are included. I like their products in general, but I don't know that I've ever put an actual sandwich in the sandwich baggies. I'd definitely follow EcoCatLady's advice if I packed sandwiches frequently.
