Have Them Tote Toxin-free Lunch Bags

These locally-made lunch bags make for a great back-to-school gift.

Pass over the Disney princess this year and score a lunch bag with real style. These toxin-free, compostable bags are made of Ariaprene, a stain-resistant, machine-washable fabric that insulates food. Created by two sisters, Susan Givens and Carol Mack, the South Seattle-based dabbawalla bags was named after lunch delivery men in India.

Designs include a launching rocket and an adorable monkey face. $30; available at dabbawallabags.com and at Clover Toys (Ballard, 5333 Ballard Ave. NW; 206.782.0715; clovertoys.com).
