from a dream to reality...
Hi, I'm Bec, the Founder of Planet Picnic.
When I had my daughter in 2016, it became even more important to me to care for our beautiful Earth. I began a mission for us to become a low-waste household, and dream of being zero-waste one day. We have already made lots of swaps, the quest is on-going, and we are learning every day.
I had found great re-usable swaps for keeping most things fresh while either in the fridge, or on the go, but not for storing my sandwiches, wraps and snacks....
At the same time, I was learning to sew and had bought a sewing machine, a beautiful 1950s electric Singer. My main aim was to be able to fix things, and make clothes for us. But then I started to play around making sandwich bags. I was also job hunting at the time, I really loved the sandwich bags, and other people did too so I decided to take the plunge and start the business, and I am so glad I did.
I opened the web-shop in January 2019 and now have 20 stockists.
There are now 7 products in the range, I have plans for other exciting editions in 2020, watch this space...
