The lovely girls at Stickybeaks are joining in the back to school fun this week and giving away some of their fabulous lunch bags!!
So, who are Stickybeaks?
Stickybeaks are an Aussie owned business, started by four mums who were looking for an eco-friendly alternative to all those paper bags used to order tuckshop lunches.
So, what’s the problem with paper bags?
Well, they are a single use item and many trees are cut down and resources used to make them and transport them. Although they are recyclable, there are many that don’t get recycled and they end up adding to landfill. They are also prone to getting wet and tearing and don’t have a safe, hygienic option for money.
Instead of a single use paper bag, Stickybeaks bags can be used over and over again for tuckshop orders. They are really durable and strong and made of the same material as green bags.
How does it work?
Being school mums, these ladies have thought of everything. The lunch order is written on a slip of paper and inserted into the plastic window. Money is kept hygienically separate in a zippered section.
I love that you can print out free lunch order slips and name tags on the website. They have also thought of the tuckshop staff and they stand up on their own for easy packing and handling. Great idea.
You can get the lunch bags with different coloured edging, so each child in the family can have their own bag (although sometimes it’s easier to get all the one colour to avoid fights… you know what I am talking about, right mums?).
The wallet style folds up quite small but still holds more than a paper bag.
The insulated all-rounder is a good option if you need to keep the food hot or cold.
My kids both used them and liked them. They are easy to clean, just needing a wipe out and I love that they are black so they don’t look scruffy after a bit of use!
I also really love the absolutely brilliant fundraising option they have. What a great idea for getting much needed funds for the school, avoiding junk food fundraisers and being eco-friendly all at the same time. The Stickybeak’s mums will give you a discounted price, a flat rate for postage and lots of help to run an easy, successful fundraiser. If you are ordering just for yourself, the postage is free!
They are in 600 schools across Australia already. Impressive.
