US firm Lunchskins has launched a new Recyclable + Sealable Paper Quart Food Storage Bag to help reduce the use and disposal of single-use plastic food bags.
The new product launch is part of the company’s aim to disrupt the $600m retail category with ‘quality’ plastic-free food storage bag products.
The company is focused on increasing on-shelf presence and new product lines in line with its strategic growth plan.
Lunchskins is also planning to expand its sealable paper bag line into more than 3,000 physical retail stores across the US, including Target, by the end of this year.
The company is making its products available in retail stores by forging partnerships with more than 15 retailers, including Container Store, Wegmans, Harris Teeter and Whole Foods.
Beginning mid-June, Lunchskins Recyclable + Sealable Paper Sandwich Bags will be available in food storage aisles in Target stores.
Lunchskins CEO and founder Kirsten Quigley said: “Learning that five-hundred billion plastic sandwich bags are consumed and disposed of annually was an ‘aha’ moment for me – that’s when I felt the urgent need to present an attractive and affordable alternative.”
The company is establishing a new level of quality and superiority in the food storage category by being the first plastic-bag-free brand to use a biodegradable adhesive on its line of sealable paper bags.
Each box is priced at $4.99-$5.99 and contains 50 paper bags.
Lunchskins brand products are manufactured by 3Greenmoms, which also distributes them through natural, speciality, gift, grocery, and mass-market channels.
