Replacing the plastic sandwich baggie

I don’t know about you, but I depend on those little plastic baggies almost every day. I know they aren’t good for the world, and millions are discarded into our landfills daily. And yet, when I’m making my sandwich at 7am, it seems like there aren’t many alternatives. There is tupperware, but after hearing many stories about chemicals leaching out the plastic and into my food, that doesn’t seem safe. There is pyrex, a really good choice but seriously heavy to lug to work. And there are wax bags, but those also seem to be one-use (they don’t clean very well).
I recently came across another alternative, and it seems to be pretty good. They are called lunchskins by 3greenmoms, and they are thick cotton colorful bags with a thin interior polyurethane liner. They are safe for the dishwasher, and BPA-free even when under high heat. And the designs are pretty cool. They come in different sizes for whatever type of food you are carrying and they can handle moisture pretty well. What do you think of lunchskins?
Here are two of the designs, lunch bag (left) and snack bag (right):
