Inspiration and innovation seem to go hand-in-hand. Stasher founder Kat Nouri had her a-ha moment while making a sandwich. As a busy mother of three, Kat had been making school lunches for years, and every time she packed her kids’ sandwiches in disposable plastic baggies, she’d think there’s got to be a better way. aside from the millions of pounds of plastic that go into landfill each year, she was concerned about the effects of petroleum-based plastics on her family. As the founder of international lifestyle brand modern-twist, Kat 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. Since its debut in 2016, stasher has won numerous awards, including the prestigious global innovation award and the design industry’s red dot award. kat recently had another a-ha moment while packing school lunches: we need to create a snack size to go along with the sandwich size stasher! the good news: snack size stasher is currently in production, and will be available soon.
