It is not secret that I am not a fan of plastic bags whether for snacks, sandwiches or groceries. We just do not use them in our home if we can help it. Now that my daughter is in school and I have to pack snacks, I was trying to get creative. I use containers, but sometimes I want just a snack bag. So in my quest to make my life easier, I found LunchSkins. LunchSkins were created by moms. They were concerned when they heard more than 20 million sandwich bags from school lunches go into landfills in the US...everyday! They started 3greenmoms, the company responsible for LunchSkins. Their mission:to design a colorful, fresh alternative to the plastic baggie. LunchSkins are food-safe, dishwasher-friendly and can withstand high heat. They are made from high-quality European fabric used by patisseries and bakeries.They even found a US family-owned manufacturer nearby in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania.
And no more plastic baggie taste or waste!
LunchSkins donates 1% of online sales profits to the C&O Canal Trust, an organization formed to protect and restore the the historic C&O Canal near the nation's capital, a trash-free National Park. See www.canaltrust.org for more information.
In just one year, our LunchSkins customers have taken a big bite out of landfill and ocean waste. With your purchase and use of LunchSkins, more than 12 million plastic baggies have been saved from the landfill. WOW! We’re on a mission to reduce the number of plastic baggies thrown out. Help us reach our 2011 goal of keeping 100 million plastic baggies out of landfills and waterways.
We love our LunchSkins. They are great for fruit, snacks, even subs! You name it and there is a LunchSkins for it. My daughter likes the extra bit of flair in her lunchbox and I like that it gives us the chance to have less waste.
