It starts out sealed and sterile on the inside, and it's much easier to carry than an empty, recapped bottle if you decide you want to save yeast from something that you're drinking. I just toss it in the fridge when I get home and pitch it from there into either a beer or a starter.
And if you get harassed on your drunken walk home by the police, you could say it's your piss bag.

Peel 'em off and save 'em. White labs will give you a free vial if you send them 10 labels.

Less likely that I'm gonna get harrassed for a ziplock of yeast in my wife's handbag than it is for a 750mL sticking out.

I just got a coupon for a free vial that way actually. I tossed a bunch of the vials at the time but now I have a use for them.

I never knew this, that is awesome! So do you just peel them off and mail them in when you have enough?

I highly doubt they are sterile. They are more likely very clean, but sterile is certainly a stretch.

Yah, this has actually come up somewhere else before, and after actually contacting the makers of ziplock, they responded by saying that the bags are NOT sterile in any way

I've not seen that response. However, there is a lengthy thread over on the AHA forum, including a response from a guy who swabbed some baggies, plated on agar, and observed no growth. That might not be good enough for Ziplock to guarantee sterility (and assume some sort of liability issues in the process), but it's good enough for me to feel confident storing my yeast in one.
