Lunchskins’ significant new retail distribution includes more than 15 conventional, natural, and big box retailers – like Container Store, Wegmans, Harris Teeter, Whole Foods, and others. The national retail expansion also includes distribution in Target stores, which will carry Lunchskins Recyclable + Sealable Paper Sandwich bags in food storage aisles starting mid-June.

Like all Lunchskins bags, each box of fifty paper bags includes high-quality, stylish bags and is accessibly priced at $4.99-$5.99 per box. The easy-to-use once and toss line includes:
