Wrap-N-Mat: What a great idea!


I was browsing through the Green Living store in Lakewood yesterday when I happened upon a totally cool invention:  Wrap-N-Mats!  

Has anyone heard of these before?  They're new to me, and I haven't seen such a simple and purposeful idea in quite a while.  Washable, reusable and available in a wide array of prints, these sandwich wrap-slash-placemats are both convenient and environmentally friendly.  Unlike regular sandwich bags (which are intended to be used one time only), the Wrap-N-Mat is designed to lay flat for easy cleaning, and doesn't have any nooks and crannies in which bacteria like to grow.  How smart!

At $10, they an affordable way to make a difference every day - and they'd also make a great gift for any office lunch-ers and/or earth-lovers on your list.  I picked up one with cute little doggies on it, but you could go for any one of dozens of colors or prints yourself.  I also have a feeling they'd work out really well to transport, say, a couple of cookies and a brownie for snacking even if you didn't have to pack your lunch that day.

Good Morning Kids....so what is this I hear about you being in Lakewood? I know someone who lives there...hmmmm....I am sure you were just busy and didnt have time to call, right? :-) My other thought is, do these have any fastening or sealing features? for instance, I can imagine wrapping a placemat around my sandwich or lunch and it not staying in place like my good old plastic wrap does :-).....until next time....J.R..

It has a handy velcro closure. It wouldn't be watertight like a ziploc or anything, but unless you work with the crew on Deadliest Catch, it should keep your sammy safe until lunchtime :)

sandwich for lunch? how old fashioned. I don't suppose they had one with skull and crossbones or powertool on it, did they?

or maybe some rhinestone embelishment? that is sure to dress up any sandwich creation!
