IT STARTED WITH A REUSABLE BAG TO REDUCE LUNCH WASTE
And, exploded into a global mission that’s prevented over 2.8 billion single-use plastic bags + over 2.6 million plastic straws from entering our oceans and landfills.
FROM THE KITCHEN TABLE TO A HOUSEHOLD BRAND
It all started around a kitchen table in 2008 for Founder, Kirsten Quigley. While raising her young family, she noticed how much waste was generated on a daily basis packing 20+ lunches a week and countless snacks on the go for classes, teams, and camps.
Lunchskins was born out of her need for a planet-friendly and stylish alternative to disposable plastic bags. From the beginning, she knew that whatever she created had to be easy, affordable, and fun so people would make it part of their daily routine, and collectively have a much bigger positive impact on our environment. For the past 12+ years, Lunchskins, a woman-owned brand has been helping families and communities think and act greener by replacing 2.8 billion plastic bags with Lunchskins bags + over 2.6 million plastic straws.
