Wrap-N-Mat for Waste Free Lunches

A long time ago when I wanted to be Green but I had no idea where to start, I discovered the mom-invented Wrap-N-Mat on a review blog. I thought it was a genius solution for lunch boxes everywhere. The Wrap-N-Mat is a reusable sandwich wrap that unfolds to become a travel-friendly place mat!

Before I bought 2 Wrap-N-Mats, I was using resealable plastic containers to transport my sandwiches. I didn't like how the containers were bulky and took up a lot of room whether there was a sandwich inside or not. Also, in the meantime, my preschooler started going to a Montessori school, and it was required that all of the students be able to open and close their lunch containers WITHOUT HELP.

My son can't manage a plastic container, but he can easily open and close his Wrap-N-Mat, even at age 3 1/2.

Wrap-N-Mats are recommended by www.MyHealthySchool.Com; they have lots of tips to help parents equip their children for a healthy school day!

We have four Wrap-N-Mats: two in the PEVA lined Eco Print and two in the PEVA lined Solid Kelly Green. My husband uses them when he packs his own lunch, and it never fails that someone expresses interest in the Wrap-N-Mat when they see him using one (or two).


Jojo used the Eco Print Wrap-N-Mat in a noodle shop in Laos. We brought his own sandwich because I was afraid the soup would be too spicy for him to eat.


The Wrap-N-Mat is a great place mat. Jojo is enjoying some watermelon that we transported in a sippy cup.

We have used our Wrap-N-Mat for sandwiches, bagels, hot dogs (actually a pb and j on a hot dog bun), and handfuls of chips. Our Wrap-N-Mats have been used at work, school, restaurants, in car trips, and airplane trips.

The Wrap-N-Mat is an easy and inexpensive way to reduce your waste, provide a germ-free surface for eating, and keep your sandwiches fresh!

The Wrap-N-Mat is available for purchase at www.Wrap-N-Mat.com .

Win your own Wrap-N-Mat! www.Wrap-N-mat.com is giving away one Wrap-N-Mat to a My Greening reader!

To enter, simply tell me what design (not mentioned on this post) that you like the best!

One winner will be chosen by random integer generator.

This giveaway will close on August 11th, 12 midnight CST.

*Congrats, Lisa!*

Meredith said...

I saw this on another green mom review site, and thought it was the coolest thing! I so want to get a few of them... A few in solid colors like hunter and kelly green, and then the patterns like red white gingham, apples, teddy bears, and the dogs & doghouses. I can see each person that I would give it to!

I couldn't remember the name of these, or the company that made them, I looked everywhere! I made a couple of these last year (i know. by HAND *gasp*) when I saw them on a forum for a "waste free lunch" but didn't want to make new ones.

I love the Tropical Fish on Black pattern. My son starts school this year *cry* and we'll be needing some of these. I love the Holiday pack assortment, too.

Although we are going to try Bento Boxes (Japanese style lunch box) for our main lunchboxes this year I would love to try these for the days when we're in a hurry and just wanting to pack a sandwich. We too used the plastic reusable containers, but this looks awesome.
I actually love the Tropical Fish on black, the Mardi Gras Masks and the Poker Cards and Chips.
I also think I am going to be ordering some of the holiday ones. I just spent a not very small fortune on the girls back to school supplies and bento boxes and accessories and still have to let the girls pick out the bento box and backpack & supplies winners of the giveaways on my blog when we draw names this week so I have bookmarked.
Thanks for the intro.
