Financial Friday: Lunchskins
by Alice Shaffer

Several months ago on Jasmere , the deal of the day was Lunchskins.  Lunchskins are these awesome reusable sandwich and snack bags.  Everyone has been talking about going green. So when the deal came up on Jasmere for 4 of these Lunchskins for $15 I  jumped at the chance to try them out.  I was also excited that the company had been started by 3 moms wanting to rid the landfills of plastic sandwich bags.  They shared on the site how they got started:
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.
As professional nannies, many of us are packing lunches and snacks for our charges.  By using reusable BPA free products you are reducing waste in the landfills.  My kids get their lunches at school, so I found other ways to use these lunchskins in my life.  Recently I was traveling to the west coast, I used the snack sized bag for my gum, mentos, and lifesavers.  Another snack lunchskins was used for my 2 thumbdrives and wireless mouse.   The sandwich sized one was used for my “cords” (ipod cord, cell charger,  earphones etc). I also received a dozen See’s lollipops and they fit perfectly in the sandwich bag!   My sister in law has one now for my nephews pacifiers for the diaper bag.

I've never even heard of reusable lunch bags, but I love the idea. Now we definitely need to find some cute ones and start being green!

It was great meeting you this weekend!
