If there’s one thing I’m passionate about, it’s feeding my family healthy food. Another thing I am really obsessed with is making sure Little One’s school lunches are as eco-friendly as possible. This means using reusable food containers, a reusable water bottle, reusable cutlery, etc. Little One loves fresh fruit and veg, so I don’t have to worry about pre-packaged items or using plastic wrap on things.
The one thing that was missing for her perfectly “Litter-less Lunch” was the napkins. I had been putting paper napkins in her lunch box. I tried to convince myself that paper napkins were “okay”, but something still wasn’t sitting well with me. If we could use reusable everything in Little One’s lunch box, I’d feel that much better.
Then I discovered Funkins!
Thank you, Twitter! I was trolling the internet in search of more enviro-friendly lunch items and came across @myfunkins in my Twitter feed! I fell in love with the reusable napkins instantly. Even better, I really enjoyed corresponding with the creator of the incredibly fun reusable napkins! Lisa Baumgartner is a breath of fresh air! She’s so enthusiastic about making lunches litter-free, and I am so excited about her products!
Thanks to Lisa for the beautiful (and practical) Funkins! Love, love, love them! Everyone who has seen them have been wowed and have asked where we got them!
Funkins are colourful, bright, fun, reusable cloth napkins. I love packing my child’s lunches and making sure she has a smile on her face when she opens up her lunch box. This means lots of colourful fruits and veg, making her food into shapes of flowers, hearts, dinosaurs, and other shapes. Adding Funkins just completes the fun and excitement! So perfect!
Funkins come in a variety of colours and designs for boys and girls. There are even Holiday themed Funkins.
Even I carry Funkins in my purse so I don’t have to use paper napkins anymore! They’re handy to have when eating an orange while waiting for Little One’s bus to arrive after school! You can even unfold Funkins and use them as placemats! I was thinking of giving each of Little One’s friends their own Funkins as a party favour at Little One’s birthday in November, but Little One informed me that she is inviting her ENTIRE Junior Kindergarten class!!! Oy!
I’m on a mission to reduce lunch-time waste…even if it begins with something as simple as putting a reusable Funkins napkin in my child’s lunch box.
