How did you come up with the idea for this product?
inspiration and innovation seem to go hand-in-hand. I had my a-ha moment while making a sandwich. as a busy mother of three, I have been making school lunches for years, and every time I packed her kids’ sandwiches in disposable plastic baggies, I’d think there’s got to be a better way. aside from the millions of pounds of plastic that goes into landfill each year, I was concerned about the effects of petroleum-based plastics on my family. as the founder of international lifestyle brand modern-twist, I was already using pure silicone to create sustainable housewares and children’s products—why not design a reusable bag made of silicone? why not, indeed! after more than two years of rigorous product development, the world’s first fully functional, self-sealing non-plastic bag was born: stasher.
What makes your product special?
stasher, the world’s first—and only—self-sealing, airtight, non-plastic bag in the world. it’s made of pure platinum silicone, so it’s a healthy alternative that’s safe for people and the planet. but best of all, stasher can do so much more than plastic bags and containers. It can be used in the freezer, microwave and dishwasher!
What has been the best part of your startup experience?
The most exciting part has been the innovation behind stasher and developing the pinch press seal technology. We are so excited to offer the world an alternative to plastic baggies that not only functions better than plastic, but also eliminates all the negative impacts on your health and the environment. It is a grand idea, one that I hope will inspire us all to rethink plastic!
