WFMW: Wrap-n-Mat

I am very happy with my new WRAP-N-MATTM wraps. The WRAP-N-MATTM is a sandwich wrap and a placemat in one. Simply place the sandwich or other snack food on the mat and fold the WRAP-N-MATTM wrap from left to right, top to bottom. Close the Velcro tab; it’s that easy. I like to place a napkin at the bottom of the sandwich. These wraps definitely work for me!

Environmentally Friendly:

Daily over 20,000,000 baggies are discarded and added to our landfills. One wrap can be used for an entire school year without having to be replaced. All wraps are LEAD FREE. In addition, the colors on the Eco print are made with vegetable dye.

Manufactured in both USA and China:

Manufactured proudly in both Kansas, U.S.A. and Hong Kong, China. WRAP-N-MATTM wraps are made up of cloth and have a lining that is either made of PVC or PEVA. Materials found in both linings are on the FDA safe list for food contact surfaces.

Alternative lining available as well:

Three years ago, WRAP-N-MATTM wraps started being manufactured in China with a lining made of PEVA (Polyethylene vinyl acetate). This material contains no “C” chloride compound so it is more ecologically friendly in its production than PVC. WRAP-N-MATTM wraps have recently expanded their line of wraps made with PEVA lining to include solid blue, cream, solid green and our ever popular red/white gingham. Wraps made in China are manufactured under Fair Trade Association-approved guidelines.

Healthy:
WRAP-N-MATTM wraps always provides a clean surface to place your food. Use them in the school cafeteria, your office desk, the picnic table, a fast food restaurant or in the car.

I purchased my WRAP-N-MAT's from Reusable Bags where I get all of my great sustainable products, like my shopping bags.

We used these in our kids' lunches, too. They're awesome, and the kids love the fun prints.

Neat. I never saw these before. BTW, I owe you an apology.

I've been to your blog recently and was moved by your post about your double loss. I was so greived I didn't even comment--one of those what do you say?

What do you say to to comfort someone that went thorugh such a loss? What can you possibly say that will in anyway take away the pain?

I stil don't know what to say but know that I began praying for you as soon as I read the post. I understand its been a while but I know the missing them pain is still fresh. I will continue to life up your family.

Blessings,
Robin

This looks like a great product. Last week I realized that I was taking my breakfast (oatmeal) to work in a baggie EVERY Day!
Now I put all my dried oatmeal in a large container with a measuring cup, so each day I can measure my oatmeal at work. No Baggies! In fact, now my work food is completely baggie free.
I love your 3 R's posts.

I've never seen these before but I think they are brilliant! We take a lot of road trips and I like how the mat would keep their laps clean as they eat. Thanks for the tip.
