The term “washable paper” might sound implausible, but trust us — it’s the real deal. In fact, many of our most popular bags are made from this remarkable eco-friendly material that’s just as attractive and durable as leather, making it the perfect material for reusable and insulated lunch bags.

Even with the messiest lunch, washable paper wipes clean with a simple dab or two. Try doing that with a paper lunch bag and see how that holds up. We dare you! Our non-insulated reusable bags are even machine-washable.

About Washable Paper

There are many different types of washable paper on the market. But at Out of the Woods® and KeepCool, we use an über-special variety that we’ve dubbed Supernatural Paper. Here’s what makes it so amazing.

Washable paper is a material made from the cellulose found in trees. In the case of Supernatural Paper, those trees come from responsibly managed forests. So even though it has many of the qualities of leather, it’s 100% cruelty-free, vegan, and sustainable. That means a lunch bag made from washable paper is a sustainable lunch bag.

To make it water resistant, Supernatural Paper is bonded with a synthetic, allergen-free latex, giving it long-lasting durability. Drip some PB&J on your reusable lunch bag? Not a problem if it’s made from washable paper. Simply wipe it clean and it’s good to go.
