I wanted to find some resuable sandwich containers, but all of them are made by companies that perform animal testing (Glad, Ziplock,etc.) I couldn't find any online stores that sell anything like that either. Any ideas?

Why would Tupperware test it's products on animals?

Love the post? Why not buy the T-shirt!

I don't think the company that owns ziplocks actually tests them on animals. But they own other companies that do test their products on animals. I don't eat Pringles because they are owned by Proctor and Gamble --they don't test the Pringles on animals, but they do test things like Downey and Cover Girl.

****I have a blog--check me out!

I found a reusable sandwich/snack wrapper:

http://www.reusablebags.com/store/wrapnmat-p-2.html

They also come in a set of 3.



That site also has nice lunch bags and containers if you're interested in those.

This might be an american thing but people refer to every plastic container as tupperware (and every facial tissue as kleenex). Tupperware doesn't test its products on animals.



I'm not even sure why Glad and Ziplock even enter the picture. There products are reusable/disposable. They are cheap (maybe a dollar each) but they don't last nearly as long as a normal plastic storage container (Tupperware, Rubbermaid et al).

My concern was buying a product from a company that tests their on animals, not that they actually test the containers on them. I was going off of a lists from PETA and caringconsumer.com of the companies that test. Sorry if it was a stupid question, I'm just trying to be careful.

Tupperware, the brand, is not on that list though, is it? Why not just go with the original and the best?



This post has not been sponsered by Tupperware (tm).

This comment is totally sponsored by a Tupperware vegan! lol my.tupperware.com/susanfine

Stop using that nasty, breakable, off brand plastic that melts into your food. Blech!

Just saying, if you're going to store your food, or get your produce to last six to eight times longer, order the Tupperware. No BPA, No phthalates, and cruelty free with a lifetime guarantee.

We were just talking about if Tupperware was still made! I had to look it up. Do you have parties?
Seitan ribs are my current favorite food!

Don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good
