KangaSac Review



I am always trying to find ways to be more environmentally and budget conscious, but it is an on-going transition for my family. Last year I purchased a large quantity of reusable shopping bags which I am transitioning my family into using full time, and I have a long list of changes I would like to continue to make. The most recent transition we are making is to use more reusable snack bags, so the timing of this review was perfect in getting me to jump start into the world of reusable “baggies”.

KangaSacs are reusable lunch bags with zippered closures, bright, cheerful colors, and are available in the 3 most useful sizes for lunches and food on-the-go. The Lunchbag size is the largest and has snaps to secure onto backpacks or strollers. This is also the perfect size to take to work, send with your kids to school or to use to store your snacks and drinks on-the-go. I was able to review a sandwich and snack bag for this review and we have been using them regularly in lieu of disposable plastic baggies when we are out and about. These two sizes would fit perfectly in the lunchbag size if you were to buy them all as a set, and the possibilities for what you can fill them with are endless.

I was thrilled to learn that these bags are machine washable, hand washable and dishwasher safe! We have been using them on a daily basis to put my daughter’s snacks in and I even used the sandwich bag to store an open package graham crackers for a couple of days. They are not completely airtight, but do a fine job keeping food fresh and crunchy for short time periods, which is all our snacks and food last in our house anyways.

And these bags aren’t just for kids either, since the whole family can use them for lunches, snacks, picnics or hikes. All in all our first experience with reusable bags was a positive one and I plan on using these instead of plastic bags from now on. What a great feeling knowing I won’t have the spend the extra money every month or two on plastic bags and knowing that I am adding yet another eco-conscious choice into my daily lifestyle.

Buy it!

    I like the lunch bag because it has snaps at the top to attach it to things. The orange color is nice and bright and my favorite. They aren't carried by any of my local retailers but GoGoNatural is a USA based online store that carries them.

  158. I like the blue Kanga Sac. Can't buy 'em around here though. I like the snack size bags. It'd be great to pack a snack for Chloe and not have a baggie to throw away.

  159. I like the orange snack bags… but I'm not sure about my favorite retailer because I keep pulling up no results. Hypothetically my favorite retailer would be in Michigan.
