We love snackTAXIs – they’re little and cute and reusable and… well, owner Erin Kelly-Dill of Plainfield, MA explains it best:
“I invented SnackTAXIs way back in 2003 as a way to stem the tide of plastic ziplock bags that flowed from our house to the landfill when our 3 kids started school! We pack over 500 lunches every year, and had definitely fallen prey to the easy appeal of the ziplock bag.
SnackTAXIs are easy too – really! They are made in our home-based workshop by talented (and fun!) local sewers – we are committed to keeping our business local, and will never outsource our labor.”
As our way of joining the celebration this Saturday, September 24 of “Sustainable Energy Day” in Wellesley, we will be offering 20% off all of our snackTAXI bags, regular $6.99 for snack size and $8.99 for sandwich size. SnackTAXIs can be washed by hand or machine and come in so many patterns! So pick some up today and curb your plastic baggy use.
We want to tell you about all our ongoing discounts for members of local groups, in case you don’t know!
TCAN: 10% off for members always. Check them out–there are so many things for kids to do!
Wellesley Mothers Forum: 10% off

We are proud of the dedication of these groups and this is our little way of saying THANKS!
Also, please check out Natick Days while we’re talking about great local groups. They organize Natick Days, which provide fundraising for Natick’s non-profits and youth groups.
Everyone else sign up for our 2% back program. So easy: just give us your name. We don’t email you (unless you want to find out about our sales and special events) and we will NEVER give or sell your information to anyone. If you do sign up for our newsletter, we use iContact to keep in touch–safe, secure, and easy to unsubscribe.

We love it, play it, and have it for you.
Stacey and her band will be performing at TCAN
