Z- Ziplock

Got to love ziploc bags. Random thought? Ok maybe, but seriously ziploc bags have been such a lifesaver. From storing food to keeping my lotion and shampoo from leaking all over my clothes in the luggage. We have little things like this and it always makes me wonder, who came up with this idea? and why? Well I did a little digging for fun and this is what I found.

“In 1951, a company called Flexigrip, Inc. was formed to develop and market a plastic zipper, by the same name, based on a set of patents, which it had purchased, of which the inventor was Borge Madsen. The initial products for the Flexigrip and other plastic zippers (such as the sliderless zippers (toptite) that were developed by Flexigrip) were looseleaf binder inserts and flat briefcases.” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ziploc)

I find it interesting that something created for office use could be turned into a wonderful kitchen item.
