Back to School Essentials: Lunchskins Bags #Lunchskins

We heart Lunchskins. Stylish, cool, functional and eco-friendly. And totally essential for us this year in our back to school routine for the kids. I’m making a huge effort to use less plastic bags in my kids packed lunches for school so these are the perfect alternative and my kids enjoy the fun patterns appearing each day in their lunch bag too. Everything from frogs to stripes to sharks.

If your looking for a reason to ditch the plastic baggies and switch to Lunchskins, I’m sure this stat will convince you. I found it staggering!

Did you know that U.S. Citizens use 100 Billion plastic bags every year? Gasp! Did you know it takes 1,000 years for each plastic bag to degrade?

You can even buy the Lunchskins 2 at Target (in the aisle where they sell water bottles) for $10.99. ClassyMommy even appeared in an insert for Lunchskins with some BTS tips alongside other Mom bloggers. Fun!

Gap Kids is selling Lunchskins too or purchase online at Lunchskins.com.

More compelling and scary stats on plastic bags – and why it’s important for us Moms to try to find alternatives for snack bags when we’re packing school lunches.

Total number of plastic bags used worldwide annually 1 trillion
Total number of plastic bags China consumes everyday 3 billion
Total number of plastic bags used every minute 1 million
Total number of years it takes for a plastic bag to degrade 1,000 years

Note: I’m on the advisory board for Lunchskins. As always all thoughts and opinions are my own.
