Our Story

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

Funkins Founder & CEO
 

We were founded in 2011 when MyFunkins creator, Lisa Baumgartner, was looking for a fun and simple way to reduce school lunchtime waste.  Her son's Montessori preschool required that children bring in a waste-free lunch, including a cloth napkin.

When Lisa couldn’t find any fun, child-sized cloth napkins, she made her own using bright fabrics and fun patterns. The company now works with schools and families across the world to make school lunch time waste-free.
