Design & Functionality With fun prints and durable construction there are dozens of ways Blue Q zipper pouches help replace plastic baggies and other disposables for organization and storage. Create a waste-free lunch kit by storing a cloth napkin and reusable utensils inside the zippered pouch. Also works well for organizing items in your bag or purse – make-up, mints and hand lotion.
Materials The bags are made by taking old grain sacks and plastic water bottles, grinding them up, heating them into a thread, which is then woven to create a super-strong 95% post-consumer recycled polypropylene material. Only the film required to screen the design are not made from recycled materials.
Sustainability This bag can help you eliminate thousands of plastic baggies over its lifetime, and choosing products made from post-consumer recycled materials promotes a more sustainable path for landfill-bound waste.
About Blue Q Brothers Mitch and Seth Nash founded Blue Q in 1988 and still own it today. For the past 15 years, the company has also been the largest local private employer of individuals with disabilities, who make up one quarter of the Blue Q workforce. The company has a close working relationship with the family-owned company in China that makes their bags. Any factories Blue Q partners with must pass rigorous inspections to ensure they meet high, ethical standards for employee care, product quality, and environmental responsibility.
Blue Q donates 1% of the sales of their bags and water bottles to the Nature Conservancy to help support global green initiatives. They are committed to a donation of at least $100,000 by April 19, 2013. See Nature.org for more information on their programs.
Care Instructions Wipe clean with damp cloth; air dry.
Tip Although it is lead-free, this bag has not been tested for food safety.
Like it a lot! Nice design, sturdy material, good size for pens and such. Bought it for my sons pencils, erasers etc. The zipper is bigger and easy to open (it even makes the fun zzzzzzip noise when opening it). I trust that it will be with us for along time.
These are a great alternative to plastic baggies. We use them for fruit, veggies, pretzels and anything else (non-liquid) that we can think of. My girls love the colorful, fun designs and, apparently, so do their friends at school.
These bags also wash easily - we just place them (open) on the top rack of the dishwasher and they come out great every time.
I bought one of these to test them out and I wish I'd bought more. I am using this to carry my reusable flip and tumble produce bags, but I've also used it to carry make-up, cloth towels, grocery bags, and I'm sure I could use it for a million other things!
