Lunchskins Press Kit 

Lunchskins is on a mission to replace everyday plastic with smart, sustainable solutions that are easy to use and accessible to everyone.

Brand Overview

3Greenmoms is a woman-owned business that designs, manufactures, markets and distributes LunchSkins reusable and recyclable products through the Natural, Specialty, Gift, Grocery, and Mass channels. Given the rising global epidemic of disposable plastic — one trillion plastic bags are used once and discarded every year — the LunchSkins brand exists to provide a better alternative.  LunchSkins is committed to reducing plastic waste and empowering people with easy-to-use, affordable, and well-designed alternatives.  With two complementary product lines — 1. REUSABLE, dishwasher-safe fabric sandwich/snack bags and 2. NEW Recyclable + Compostable + Sealable paper sandwich bags (first to market) —  the LunchSkins brand aims to disrupt the plastic-saturated food storage market and provide smarter, more sustainable solutions.  Current partners include Whole Foods, Target, Amazon, Container Store, and many others. LunchSkins have been featured by the Huffington Post, O Magazine, Real Simple, Katie Couric, Martha Stewart Living, and more.  The NEW Recyclable Paper product line just won a 2017 Green Award for a sustainable product that has a ‘green’ impact on the local community and beyond.

 

Founder Kirsten Quigley knows life can be a balancing act between making a difference and getting out the door on time. Making choices that are good for you, your family, your wallet, and the planet can be tough, and it usually feels like something has to give. As a mother of four and lifetime environmentalist, she has experienced firsthand how everyday convenience doesn’t always play nicely with the bigger picture things we care about.

 

For over a decade, Lunchskins mission to help the world eliminate single-use plastic pollution has empowered people everywhere to make a difference every day with easy-to-use, affordable alternatives to plastic. Promoting global health and the welfare of all living things, Lunchskins continues to drive innovation and challenge industry standards in the food storage market. Recognized for giving back, in 2018 Lunchskins is donating 50 cents from every order to The 5Gyres Institute to help the fight against plastic pollution in our oceans. Lunchskins brand products are manufactured by woman-owned business, 3Greenmoms, LLC, which designs, manufactures, markets, and distributes Lunchskins reusable and recyclable products through natural, specialty, gift, grocery, and mass market channels.

"Mom of two Jessica Alba uses Lunchskins reusable baggies to give her girls healthy treats on the go. Offered in colorful prints including pears, lizards and birds, the pouches "are great for snacks like raw carrots, broccoli, and a homemade almond, dried cranberry, and granola mix" the actress and founder of The Honest Company has said."

"We are already happy LunchSkins users and try to use our pouches as much as possible but sometimes we just need to be able to toss it when we're done so we will use Ziploc and I hate it, especially if it's something for my kids. Much happier with this new idea! I would say fingers crossed but this is so clearly going to kick butt!"
