Frequently Asked Questions
What are they made of?
The Fresh Snack Packtmis made of 4mil thick EVA (Ethylene-vinyl acetate) and is made to be reusable and thus reduce lunch and snack waste.EVA is the same material that has been recently used for baby teethers and for a variety of vinyl and foam products.According to the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) website and the FDA (US Food and Drug Administration) website - EVA is safe for storage and contact with food.
We have had our bags lab tested to be non-leaching by SGS based in New Jersey.
The package doesn't say that they are BPA-free but your website does. Are they BPA-free?
Yes. BPA is a plastic hardener and usually associated with polycarbonate hard, clear plastics - and our bags are made of soft material, EVA plastic doesn't contain BPA. This is a question that we are often asked, so we felt that we would mention it on our website. We have limited space on our packaging and need to mention the relevant facts and details.

Simple. Just wash inside and out with warm water and soap. Then rinse and hang dry or towel dry. Our how to clean page has links to great baggie dryers available on the web.
