Back To School Dressing For Your Sandwich
When three Maryland mothers in 2008 heard a statistic that over twenty million plastic sandwich bags go into landfills each day in the US they decided to take action. The women, Kirsten Quigley, a Stanford University graduate and non-profit consultant, Cristina Bourelly, Duke University graduate and former corporate lawyer, and Jennie Stoller Barakat, a Carnegie Mellon graduate and graphic designer got together to create 3Greenmoms, LLC.
The company had one simple goal: design a colorful, fresh alternative to the plastic baggie. It seemed like an easy enough proposition, a healthy safe alternative to plastic sandwich bags but, what followed was countless hours of development, late nights and prototypes. A European fabric used by patisseries and bakeries certified as food-safe which withstands high heat was chosen as a good alternative to the plastic. Style was considered next; inspiring several bright, colorful and graphic prints for the bags creating their signature product LUNCHSKINS.
Since beginning, the company has expanded their initial offering of reusable sandwich bags to include: reusable snack bags, reusable big bags, reusable tote bags, reusable lunch kits, reusable ice mats and more. The original Lunch skins retail for $8.95 each and are available in a range of colors and patterns and lunch kits at $34.99 (which includes a lunch tote, 3 sandwich bags, and an ice mat).
Since its founding, the company has saved more than 500 million plastic bags from landfill each year—3 Billion since 2008.
