Cotton Lunch Bags
by Debra Lynn Dadd
love the newsletter. I cannot wait to buy the revised edition of your book! I have a quick question - are there alternatives to vinyl lunch bags? My nine year old son has a vinyl lunch bag (the cooler type) that really needs to be replaced and we hate the smell of new vinyl. Paper bags won't do, he really needs a lunch bag that stays cold for 4+ hours. No school lunch program yet, either. Help! Thank you so much for all the GREAT info!!

I don't know of any natural fiber lunch bags that are insulated, but there are a number of nice cotton lunch-bag size bags available online--some are even made with organically-grown cotton and reasonably priced too. What I would do is get a cotton bag and then insert one of those cold packs that you can refreeze. See if that works well enough for you.
