$100 Lunchskins Giveaway

Giveaway | 70 comments

You already know that I think LunchSkins are pretty cool. Since school just recently started, LunchSkins wants to offer you a fun giveaway to give you the chance to green your lunch boxes this school year.

Not yet familiar with Lunchskins? These are reusable bags meant for replacing the plastic zip top bags in your lunchhbox. They have been constructed of of food-safe, high-quality fabric used by pastry chefs which results in a grease-proof, moisture-proof reusable lunch bag. They’re also dishwasher-safe, BPA, lead, and phthalate-free. Suddenly greening your lunch box didn’t seem so hard! (Plus…hello? cute!)

Their bags, unlike many other copycats, can be washed in the top rack of the dishwasher. That’s right. There is no extra laundry involved to wash these bags. The only thing that would make going green easier would be if the lunches started packing themselves.

Can’t wait for the giveaway? That’s ok. LunchSkins are available at over 300 Target locations and select Gap stores (with fun neon patterns), but you can also purchase Lunch Skins in their online store if you are unable to locate the sets in a retail store near you.

p.s. I love that Lunch Skins offers opportunities for school fundraisers (isn’t this so much better than purchasing chocolates or cookie dough that aren’t good anyway?) and that they donate a percentage of their sales towards charity.

 

Did you know that U.S. Citizens use 100 billion plastic bags every year?

One Winner will Receive a LunchSkins Prize Pack ($100 val)

  • 2 sets of LunchSkins2 dog/ladybug/frog sets
  • 1 bike sub
  • 1 red spoon sub

  • 1 berry reverse dot snack
  • 1 bright yellow dot snack

Giveaway Requirements:

  • Check out what Lunch Skins has to offer and then share your best tips for “greening” your family’s sack lunches.
  • Contest ends September 23, 2012 at 11:59 p.m. PST.
  • Contest open to US States only.
  • Winner will be chosen via random.org and will have 3 days to respond before disqualified and a new winner chosen.

    Love lunchskins for those items that need bags in lunches! Their patterns are too cute! I combine the reusable bags with a reusable container, so there is no waste when my boys are done with lunch!

    We use glass containers, and when we have things that need to be put in baggies, we use our homemade ones! They’re not as fancy as lunchskins, but they do the job!

    I strive to be a “green mom” just like the three founders of Lunchskins. I would love and appreciate winning this fabulous prize! It would make packing and eating school lunches much easier and Lunchskins are safe for the environment and for the user. I don’t want to send glass in my kiddos’ lunch boxes because it could easily be broken. I want to continue to make a positive impact on the environment by not sending plastic lunch and snack bags to school/work. I like goodLife{eats} and Lunchskins on Facebook. The quality of Lunchskins, the variety of sizes and great colors and designs & the fact that my family would save money and help the environment makes them the perfect addition to our lunchboxes.

    Between small tupperwares, reusable baggies, water bottles, sandwich container, and his lunch box, the only thing my son has to throw away each day is his napkin. Come to think of it, I could just give him a cloth napkin every day, too!

    My daughter just started Kindergarten and would love some Lunch Skins to use when I pack her lunch. I try and pack most things in glass or plastic containers but occasionally have to use plastic bags due to space constraints in her lunchbox. When this happens we wash and reuse the bags but she thinks I’m crazy because all the other kids just throw theirs away.

    To green our lunches, I make sure to use re-usable containers (I like the Ziploc brand bento-style with 3 compartments) and I buy a lot in bulk (such as a large container of yogurt instead of individual containers).
