Plastic Ziploc bags are a kitchen staple in most households, but as we become increasingly aware of our environmental impact, we’re looking to ditch single-use plastics and make more sustainable choices. Cue: Reusable sandwich bags.

Most of us are already on board with reusable products like coffee cups, water bottles, cutlery and containers, so it seems only fitting that our sustainable purchases extend to sandwich bags now, too. These single-use plastic replacements are often made of silicone and can even be microwavable, dishwasher and freezer safe, making them a convenient choice.

Most reusable sandwich bags come in a range of different sizes so you can store a variety of perishable goods and leftovers in them. They also typically come in sets, so you can stock up and organise your fridge or freezer.

Aside from being a more environmentally friendly choice, they’re also kinder to your wallet, especially when multipacks range from $15-$40 (depending on quantity and size). That said, a top of the line set can set you back around $90.

So where can you buy reusable sandwich bags? Amazon, of course. Ahead, we’ve rounded up a bunch of reusable sandwich and snack bags for you to kit out your kitchen with.
