WHAT DOES THE IE MOMMY THINK?:

So what does this all mean to a mom? Simple….keep your food and your environment safer and healthier.

I live by sandwich bags. We use them for leftovers, lunches, snacks and we even use them as a quick way to carry vitamins or lotions while on vacation.

Now that my girls are older they love when I give them a little sandwich bag of snacks and a bottle of water. They think they are all set for the day and ready to go on adventures.

When you are a busy mom you may not have the time to haul newspaper, aluminum cans and bottles to the recycling center each day. Maybe you just don’t feel “green” enough. Now, thanks to Ziploc Evolve…you can make one small, simple step in the right direction to a “greener”, “eco-friendly”, “healthier” lifestyle.

I found the the Ziploc Evolve bags to be roomy and durable. They withstood the “twins” test without fail.  Ziploc has been a name that I have used in my home for years…now with the Ziploc Evolve I know that I am doing something to help my grandchildren too!

Ziploc Evolve one small step for moms…one big step for earth!
