Fabkins a Fabulous Addition to Your Waste-Free Lunch Box
Posted by: Meg In: Lunchbox Products
Fabkins sent me 2 of their kid friendly 100% cotton napkins and they have been a big hit in my kids lunchboxes. I must admit that although I have packed mostly waste-free lunches for my kids over the past few years, I have ignored the importance of a cloth napkin in making a lunchbox truly waste-free. I know my kids aren’t clean enough to not need a napkin! Now, when I stick a cloth one in their lunchbox, I know I am saving 1 (or a few) paper napkins at school from going in the trash can.
Fabkins come in sets of 4 in 10 different themes, with cute embroidered designs stitched onto these adorable napkins. They have several traditional boy and girl themes, such as “Xtreme Sports” and “Prima Ballerina”, and several of their themes are more gender neutral such as the “Garden Friends” and “Beach Bound” napkin sets.
Fabkins features include:
One cute idea I got from the Fabkins website is the use of their napkins as party favors. Young girls would love a ballerina tea or lunch birthday party using such cute personalized napkins. A napkin could then be sent home with each friend as one of the party favors. This would be a great way to encourage school friends to pack more waste-free lunches, and it would be fun for the girls to use the napkins at school together in the lunchroom.
