The typical method of transporting your sandwiches to work or to school is to put them in baggies. Of course, that means that you use a new baggie every day you make a lunch. That's not particularly good for either your pocketbook or the planet. The Wrap-N-Mat offers a simple alternative, however. The mat has a food-safe liner that allows you to wrap up sandwiches without worrying about mess getting out or dirt getting in. When you get to lunch, you just unwrap your meal and eat on the unfolded mat. The Wrap-N-Mat wipes clean between meals, and it protects your desk or eating area from your sandwich fixings. It comes in a variety of colors and checkered patterns, including a red checkered mat that looks like an old-fashioned tablecloth.

The Wrap-N-Mat is BPA-, lead-, and phthalate-free. The mat measures 17 inches by 14.5 inches when it's laid out. When folded, depending on what you've got inside, it measures about 8 inches by 7 inches. The Wrap-N-Mat is $12.95 for one large mat, but its maker, Reusablebags.com, offers a deal that if you buy two or three, the price is $10.95. If you buy four or more, the price drops to $8.95. It also comes in other sizes.
