Wrap-N-Mat Review and Giveaway


I have a new favorite handy-dandy traveling-food item to tell you about: the Wrap-N-Mat. It's quick and easy to tell you about this product as it's simply a more eco-friendly replacement for the traditional sandwhich bag and plastic wrap. Made with fabric on one side and FDA approved low density polyethylene (LDPE), each Wrap-N-Mat opens up to be a placemat and then is closed by folding the sides up and securing with the velcro tab enclosures attached to the fabric side. By using LDPE, Wrap-N-Mat's products are:
  • Phtalate free
  • Lead free
  • BPA free

While the traditional plastic bag can take 1,000 years to degrade in a landfill, the Wrap-N-Mat can generally be re-used for six months straight before needing to be replaced, according to the company's website (hand wash and dry between uses). Did you know that 20,000,000 plastic baggies are discarded into landfills each day? I'm liking the idea of no BPA or non-degrading plastic baggies involved in my food storage...


I found the size of their products to be great for even a big bagel sandwhich at 12.6” x 12.6” for the original sized wraps. They sent me both that and a pouch that's more rectangular in shape which I have used for cheese and dried snacks like pretzles. Both are working wonderfully. I haven't experienced any stale bread, escaping crumbs, or spontaneous opening of the velcro. I'm so glad to not have to wash out plastic ziplock bags any more! Wiping off my Wrap-N-Mat is a lot easier than bags, and they're much easier to dry, too. My husband refuses to rewash plastic bags because of the time and effort involved, but he's had no problem wiping of the Wrap-N-Mat. Finally! Something that works, saves us money, time, and that we'll both use!




Please take the time to check out Wrap-N-Mat's website. I love the idea of this product, and the quality meets my standards. Their company has generously offered to provide two of my reader's each with an original wrap and a pouch!
