Give where you live...
Giving back is more important than ever. Even during a down economy, we can all make a little room in our lives to support things we believe in.
Give back to schools...
We also give back to schools during online and event-based fundraisers. For more about how to reduce waste and raise money go to our fundraising page.
Give yourself a big pat on the back and look at what you’ve saved!
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 120 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 2015 goal of keeping more than 500 million plastic baggies out of landfills and waterways. Bag the (plastic) baggies!
Our happiest moments are spent outdoors. Rivers, lakes, meadows, forests, mountains, and oceans inspire us to take care of the places we love. Living sustainably is not just about big technological or scientific innovations. It’s about the little things, too. It can be as simple and easy as changing wasteful habits and using better products. After a lot of thought and reflection on our own lives, we think we have designed a smart alternative to the plastic baggie.
Hard as it may seem to believe, the familiar and frequently used zippered plastic baggie has not been improved in 40 years. Disposable plastic may have seemed like a great idea in 1964, but our standards have changed. Today, we look for products that are healthy for us and healthy for our planet, particularly things we use on a daily basis like disposable plastic baggies. Although it looks like a little bag, reusable LunchSkins can make a big difference!
how we began:
While sitting around a kitchen table in 2008, we heard a staggering statistic - every day, more than 20 million sandwich bags from school lunches go into landfills in the US. We knew that many families were looking for easy, convenient ways to be green and avoid this kind of waste. So we put our passion and energy together and 3greenmoms was born. Our mission:to design a colorful, fresh alternative to the plastic baggie.
It seemed relatively easy... all we needed was a food-safe, dishwasher-friendly, moderately-attractive reusable bag. How hard could that be? Our number one priority was to find a food-safe fabric, so we went straight to the food industry. There, we found a very high-quality European fabric used by patisseries and bakeries certified as food-safe. Conveniently, this fabric is durable and withstands high heat, too - bingo! It can withstand repeated cycles in the dishwasher. We came up with some fresh, modern designs for those of us who want to dress up our bag lunch. Then, we found a family-owned manufacturer nearby in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania.
It all sounds logical, right? But, after many prototypes, sleepless nights, exhausting early morning flights and late evening telephone calls, we think we’re on the right track. Getting here wasn’t easy, but alas, our LunchSkins have put a fresh face on an old idea. It’s been a family affair with husbands, kids and friends sharing advice and support on a daily basis.
Whether you care about our environment, saving money, eating healthy,
or looking stylish, LunchSkins are the answer to your plastic baggie blues -- they offer an environmental benefit (reduce landfill waste), a practical benefit (they can be used hundreds of times and save you money over the long run), and a healthy choice (food tastes better in a pastry bag). Welcome to our family!
