The Grommet Launches Dabbawalla Bags, Preschool Backpacks

Seattle, July 21, 2016 - Dabbawalla Bags, eco-friendly lunch bag and backpack maker, announces preschool and toddler sized backpacks are available on The Grommet (, a curated, online marketplace and product launch platform. With its availability on The Grommet, Dabbawalla Bags now reaches a larger, targeted audience of parents and grandparents looking for sustainably-made, lead-free, non-commercial, smaller backpack sizes for their kids.

With more and more information coming out about the toxicity of plastics and neoprene, parents and grandparents are looking for healthy options when it comes to packing lunches for their little ones. Dabbawalla Bags founder, Susan Givens, was frustrated by the lack of insulated, eco-friendly yet machine-washable lunch bags on the market when her son started pre-school and is committed to keeping the bags lead, PVC, and Phthalates-free.

Dabbawalla Bags is also committed to manufacturing ethically. The line of brightly colored bags are made in Taiwan by a family owned business that pays their employees fair trade wages and benefits in pleasant working conditions. Each bag is individually crafted by a talented seamstress who takes great pride in her work to ensure that the finished product meets exacting standards. 

In addition to availability on The Grommet starting July 26, 2016, Dabbawalla Bags are sold on Amazon,, and in select stores throughout the United States and around the world.
