Lunchsense Creator to Appear at NW Women’s Show
Seattle native, mother of three and D.I.Y. entrepreneur, Nancy Owen Myers will be “changing the way people think about lunch” at this weekend’s NW Women’s Show.
Eugene, Ore. – For many working women (and men), lunch has become more of a nuisance than a nourishing noontime respite. Options are limited; time is short; fast-food is bad. But, that doesn’t have to mean another cup of coffee and a breath mint—Nancy Owen Myers has designed a lunchbox that’s so easy to use, it practically packs itself!
Myers will be demonstrating and discussing Lunchsense, her intuitive, cleverly conceived creation, at Seattle’s annual NW Women’s Show, held at CenturyLink Event Center, March 2-4.
An Eco-Accessory with a Side Salad
Lunchsense lunchboxes are durable, reusable, reduce waste, and they do it all with infectious style. In addition to their remarkable usefulness, Myers is promoting their smart, attention-grabbing appearance at this weekend’s event. “Lunchsense is more than food luggage,” Myers relates, “Our boxes are eco-accessories that compliment everyone.” Purpose and personality converge in the Lunchsense look to create a simple statement of sensibility. While her primary interest is improving lunch-packing, Myers has designed a box that comfortably kicks around a cafeteria with a clutch of kinders, or sachets from the shoulder of a business exec.
Business Model by Mom
Lunchsense typifies a refreshing trend seen among many web-based, Mom/Pop businesses—a modern, values-driven ethic. Focused from the start on innovative thinking, the impulse that launched Lunchsense and Myers’ overriding principle has been—there’s got to be a better way! “Healthy, easy and cool” became the framework for Myers’ product design, but her concern for social and environmental responsibility created a business that’s determined to inspire positive change.
An opinionated businesswoman and articulate spokeswoman for her product and the lifestyle it represents, Myers is available for interviews and product demonstrations at the NW Women’s Show. Lunchsense products have been featured in The Washington Post, The Oregonian, The Eugene Register-Guard, and in the new book “Vegan Lunch Box around the World.” Myers has also appeared on the cover of Mom Magazine. Media inquiries can be made at 541-515-0089.
Based in Eugene, Ore., Lunchsense offers a line of durable, machine-washable lunchboxes that are designed with both kids and adults in mind. Each lunchbox folds out into a placemat and comes complete with dishwasher-safe food containers, ice pack and drink bottle, and all pieces are free of BPA, lead, phthalates and vinyl. Available in three sizes and eight colors, Lunchsense lunchboxes are designed around the containers, ensuring a perfect fit. Lunchsense has received the Green America Seal of Approval and a STELLA Service “star.” For more information, visit www.lunchsense.com.
