Advantages: Innovative design, free of harmful chemicals
Disadvantages: Absolutely none
I was going to buy a BPA-free plastic lunchbox for my little girl, but I wanted something compact that wouldn't take up a lot of space in the nappy bag I carry around whenever I go anywhere with her. So when I saw the Wrap n Mat on the company's website, I decided to order one to give it a trial run.
The Wrap n Mat is a compact square of cotton and polyester that can be folded to wrap around 2 sandwiches or a other food items. It has hardy lengths of velcro sewn onto it to keep the food well wrapped. In my experience it as never leaked or opened, and I have used it successfully with a combination of different foods now, including dried and fresh fruit, and wraps (the edible kind).
The inner lining of the mat is made of a plastic-like lining which uses no chemicals like normal plastic does. It is easy to wipe clean after every use and is also handy for using as a mat on your lap as you eat. The whole mat is washable and it dries really quickly too, I'm not sure how this works but it really is a fantastic feature! I always had to hand-dry plastic food containers, in the past.
The Wrap n Mat Wrap comes in different colours. I chose a plain blue one as my husband now takes it to work with him, and I have ordered some more funky colours for my little girl. It cost £4.70 including postage when I bought it on Amazon, and I have since bought more. When I ordered 2 in my next order, the company sent me a free bag to go with them! The wraps are also made to fair trade standards.
To sum up, this wrap is not only safer for your health and your children's health, and much more durable than a lunchbox that is liable to break and then leaves an empty bulk in your bag, it is also cheaper than buying plastic tupperware, and better for the environment.
People are always seeing me with the Wrap n Mat and watching it in awe, saying how useful it is, and then going off and buying them for themselves. I cannot recommend this product enough.. Once you have a Wrap n Mat, you will wonder how you ever survived without one, before!
