Re: How to Make an Eco-Friendly Snack Bag

PUL is not food safe. Stay away from vinyl (PVC). Vinyl contain lead, pthalate, and dioxin (when incinerated.) I don't know if there's food grade vinyl. There is food grade plastic PETE (zip log bag is made with this)

The safetest food grade material is organic cotton or unbleached cotton. I know. I researched this vigorously because I wanted to make them and sell them for back to school but I failed to make it cost effective to sell. So I make them for personal use with organic cotton.

Re: How to Make a Reusable Sandwich Wrap

Unfortunately PUL is NOT FOOD SAFE. So you should probably use some other fabric to make this.

Re: Book Giveaway: Betz White's "Sewing Green: 25 Projects Made with Repurposed & Organic Materials"

I love repurposing old things to make new things. I love Betz White ideas and I love her craft-woman-ship! I'd love a copy of this book and if I don't win, I guess I have to buy her signed copy from her etsy store!
