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.
