Honeysuckle™ Breast Milk Storage Bags
There are times when you, as a company, feel as if you’ve done the “Right Thing”. This is where we at TNBC are at this moment with the development of our newest, Oxo-BioDegradable Breast Milk Storage Bag,HoneySuckle™ (Great name, eh?).
Product Development is a key to our company, and watching industry trends helps us find the product that will be needed next! With the Green Movement worldwide, it is obvious that “degradable” should be part of the lingo associated with Reclosable Bags. “Recyclable”, “Made with Wind Energy”, “Lighter Gauge”—all those comments we have seen. But truly degradable has not been available. It had not been until we introduced the OXO-ZIP™.
At the same time, we were redeveloping a Human Breast Milk Storage Bag that was stronger, with better side seals, ribbing on the bottom gusset for greater durability and to help it stand up in the freezer, and, yes, Oxo-BioDegradable! The HoneySuckle™ Milk Storage Bag is all of that, and more. Our bags freeze the milk safely and securely, and, once used, they degrade in landfills!
The best testament is from a mother (an aeronautical engineer) who is a tester for Breastfeeding Mothers Unite. You can see her write up and comments from other Mothers at http://www.breastfeedingmomsunite.com, published by Melodie, and http://rotormommy.blogspot.com, published by V. Nickelson. Please see her comments below:
”After using these bags for a week I really can’t find anything I didn’t like. They have a tamper evident tear off seal, a large opening at the mouth and a double zipper at the top to prevent leaks. The write on tab is quite large which is very nice. One other thing is the texture of the write on tab. I write the date with a permanent marker and the tab seemed to help the ink dry quickly to reduce smearing once in the deep freeze.
“The other thing I noticed about the bag was the reinforced bottom. The bottom portion of the bag where it folds in has what looks to be an extra layer of plastic. This is where I have seen leaks in the past during the thawing process.
“I did what I thought was a good test of the bag. On Sunday I put about 8oz of milk in the bag and dated it like normal then put it in the deep freezer. On Thursday night I brought it back out and did a quick thaw under cold running water. The bag shows markers for the amount in it and I purposely filled it fuller than expected to really test it. I am happy to report that we had no leaks at all during the thawing process. The bag held up very well after being in the bottom of my deep freezer for the week.
“Overall I was very happy with the bags and the opportunity to review them.”
