New Reusable Lunch Bags Help Families Reduce Plastic Waste

Share Article

Eco-friendly retailer Wild Mint has launched a line of reusable lunch gear to help families cut down on disposable plastic use and its harmful effects on the environment.

“Replacing plastic bags with reusable alternatives is a small step that makes a huge difference in the effort to reduce the accumulation of plastic waste in our environment,” said Wild Mint President Hannah Helsabeck.

The online retailer of eco-friendly and toxin-free goods, Wild Mint, is proud to announce the launch of its first line of reusable lunch bags under the Wild Mint label. The organic cotton reusable snack, sandwich, and lunch bags are designed to help individuals and families take steps to cut down on the use of everyday, disposable plastics.

Americans generate 10.5 million tons of plastic waste each year with a recycle rate of only 1 to 2 percent. This plastic contributes to greenhouse gases, clogs up landfills, litters streets and waterways, and kills wildlife. Plastic bags may be a convenient way to store a snack, but disposable baggies are a huge contributor to this pollution. Wild Mint believes in a better way to treat the planet and so its team was inspired to design and manufacture a line of reusable lunch bags to eliminate the need for wasteful plastic bags.

With years of experience in the sustainable, eco-friendly, and reusable products marketplace, Wild Mint is focused on the needs of kids and parents to live healthier lifestyles. This first line of lunch gear under the Wild Mint brand name is made with organic cotton and a food-safe, eco-friendly interior liner which is also BPA, lead, and phthalate-free. Such chemicals are commonly found in products made by companies that are not centered on toxin-free manufacturing.

“Replacing plastic bags with reusable alternatives is a small step that makes a huge difference in the effort to reduce the accumulation of plastic waste in our environment,” said Wild Mint President Hannah Helsabeck. “We wanted to make our own line of reusable bags to further equip families with products that are made without harmful chemicals and help to conserve the Earth.”

The lunch bag line comes in three sizes and patterns to cover all food container needs. The smallest snack bag size is perfectly suited for nuts, cheese, pretzels and other munchies. The sandwich bag easily fits wraps, favorite sandwiches, and large fruit. The brown paper bag is obsolete thanks to the Wild Mint reusable lunch bag. Fitted with exterior and interior pockets for utensils or snack money, this is the largest item in the organic cotton line and is great for kids and adults with enough room for all lunchtime goodies. Product colors and patterns include pink strawberries, elephant frolic, and chevron.

Packing lunches with reusable gear also helps to save families money. Savings earned by packing a waste-free, reusable lunch add up to over $400 per child, per school year. Wild Mint is driven to provide brands and products that families can trust, and help others live happier and healthier lifestyles.
