The Best 6 Sustainable Uses For Stasher Bags

Stasher bags are functional, reusable, and eco-friendly.

Made from 100% food grade silicone, Stasher bags are a sustainable alternative that seal tightly to keep food fresh, and comes in a variety of sizes and colors! Free of toxic chemicals like lead, BPA, PVC, and latex, Stasher bags can also be used in the microwave, dishwasher, and even in the oven, making them a staple in my home for years to come!

Check out some of my favorite uses for Stasher Bags below.

1. Ice Pack / Heat Pack

When I was on the hunt to find a PVC-free ice pack for my little one’s ouchies, I couldn’t believe how hard it was to find a good alternative. That is when I thought to fill a smaller stasher bag half full with water and lay them flat in the freezer. It works wonders for headaches and boo-boos!!

Additionally, if your looking for a DIY heating pad, you can fill a Stasher bag with rice, heat in the microwave, and soothe sore muscles.

Tip: Don’t forget – you can store Band-Aids and other first aid essentials in a Stasher bag as well!

2. Food Storage & Toddler Snack Bags

The obvious one! Stasher bags are perfect for storing just about any food item! Think: fresh fruit, leftover pizza, pasta, baby food, toddler snacks, sandwiches, nuts, and so much more! Best of all, they are compact enough to “stash” in your purse – making it oh-so-simple to bring restaurant leftovers home!

3. Makeup and Toiletry Storage

Over the summer, I went on vacation and used two large Stashers to store my hair products, makeup, and skincare items. Not only was this a great no-waste solution, but it was PVC-free as well!

4. Waterproof “Wallet” for Phones, Medications and More

This summer, I stored my credit card, ID, pool passes, chapstick and even my phone in a single snack pack Stasher! It was the perfect size and best of all was waterproof without the yucky chemicals. This is probably one of my favorite uses!

5. Toy and Art Supply Storage

Legos, crayons, craft supplies, DIY playdough and so much more can be stored in these durable bags. Mix and match to create a colorful rainbow of fun!

6. Beach “Must-Haves” Storage

A wet swimsuit can really put a damper on your day. Store bathing suits, lotions, and other water essentials in a Stasher bag and reuse it later!

Tip: To get the most use out of your versatile Stasher, pack it with snacks to enjoy at the beach and toss your wet suit in after the sun goes down.

We hope you enjoyed these sustainable ways to use Stasher bags!

Happy Stashing!
