Lunchskins Expands Its Plastic Alternatives At Walmart Locations


Lunchskins is expanding its product lines in Walmart locations to scale the adoption of affordable household alternatives to single-use plastic bags and straws.

The expansion comes at a critical time in light of data showing that the COVID-19 pandemic brought on a resurgence of plastic waste. The International Solid Waste Association reports that single-use plastic in the U.S. increased by up to 300 percent over the past two years.

Citing the leadership and scale of Bentonville, Arkansas-based Walmart, Lunchskins CEO and founder Kirsten Quigley said the company can “give more families a choice to recycle or compost their sandwich and snack bags and do their part for the health of our planet.”

“Our mission is critical to influence attitudes and behaviors around single-use plastic and offer the best possible solution that meets people where they are on their journey to reduce plastic waste in a convenient and sustainable way,” Quigley said.

Lunchskins products are FSC-Certified and BPI-Compostable, making production and disposal intrinsically eco-friendlier than plastic options.

The company’s expansion of its presence in Walmart stores is part of the retail giant’s commitment to sustainability and accelerating solutions that are good for the environment. 

“When we met with Kirsten, she understood the category dynamics well and how important convenience is for busy families,” said Sergio Perez, merchant, food storage, Walmart U.S. 

“We believe Lunchskins provides our customers with convenience and a welcome alternative to single-use plastic. We are excited to provide customers access to an affordable option that aligns with their values.”
