“At Funkins, we believe it is our responsibility to instill environmental values in our children – and for us, it starts in their lunchbox.”

Funkins was founded after Lisa, a mom, enrolled her young son in a school that had a waste-free policy for kiddos packed lunches.

Finding it impossible to track-down a cute, kids’-sized napkin that was also waste-free, Lisa took it upon herself to stitch her own … and this was the start of Funkins!

The Funkins team are committed to producing high quality items that can be reused over-and-over again, vs disposables.

Funkins has been a leader in the waste-free lunch movement globally since 2011 and their efforts extend far beyond their product line:

The Funkins team visits schools and educational conferences to promote waste-free lunches.

In the past 12 years, over 250,000 Funkins cloth napkins have replaced paper towels and disposable placemats.

If 50% of the U.S. population used 1 paper napkin per meal 3 times a day, 164 billion napkins would be used over a 1-year period!

  • Promoting Waste-Free lunches.
  • Hand-Me-Down quality = no need to but replacements for younger kiddos.

All in all, Funkins is committed to making mealtime joyful, cleaner and greener!
