Win It Wednesday - Wrap-N-Mat

Share

I'm really excited to share with you a company today that makes a product I have been using for several years now. Wrap-N-Mat makes eco-friendly and smart washable sandwich mats and snack pouches. I love these for several reasons. They can be used as a place mat where ever you go. They have a plastic liner that cleans up completely without any fabric weave or pores that can harvest bacteria. And best of all, no more buying tons of plastic bags and just tossing them! I use these in my husband and kid's lunches and they work great!

Bonnie Stromme is the Mom-prenuer behind this great idea and here is her inspiration for Wrap-N-Mat:
"What inspired me to start my business was my children and their numerous
packed lunches. Back in 1999, I was a stay at home mom with 4 small children
under the age of 6. Living so close to the Rocky Mountains, hikes were
common for our family. One Saturday when I had 6 sandwiches to pack and
only 3 plastic baggies left in the drawer, necessity became invention. A
paper towel and masking tape served its purpose for that Saturday but the
following Monday I was designing, cutting and sewing a re-usable wrap that
we could use instead of plastic bags. While the kids were at school or
napping, I sewed hundreds of the Wraps and soon realized I needed help. We
found a manufacturer in Denver, Colorado and started producing the Wraps.
We scrimped and saved to patent the WRAP-N-MAT Wraps and now some 11 years
later, we are still manufacturing in the USA, now in Kansas as well as in
China. Our newest item, the WRAP-N-MAT Pouch was suggested by our customers
who demanded a pouch for their snack foods that could open flat to clean,
without needing to be inverted. Also lined with the same food-safe lining,
the Pouches are a great companion to our Wraps and keep food fresh for
hours. Back in 1999 we were the innovators on how to pack a plastic bag
free lunch and we are very blessed to have great customers who enjoy our
products for years and years. Today, two of our four kids are now are in
college studying business. Whether or not they follow the family business is
their choice, but they have definitely learned a lot since being toddlers,
especially the value of the planet and the ease to re-use rather than toss."
