In 2008, Go Green Lunch Box was founded simply out of “frustration.” Packing two lunches everyday, Kim Castner was appalled at the amount of waste generated by the packaging of single-serve items and that entire amount of plastic etc, eventually wound up in landfills. Upon reading a statistic about a typical American child generating 67 pounds of lunch packaging waste each school year, Kim knew she had to make some changes. After buying food containers and trying, unsuccessfully, to fit all the containers into the lunch boxes, resulting in either the lids or containers (or both!) not being brought back home from school, She decided to solve the problem . . . hence, Go Green Lunch Box!
