LUUMI – THE FUTURE OF UNPLASTIC PACKAGING IS HERE!

LUUMI – THE FUTURE OF UNPLASTIC PACKAGING IS HERE!

The future of food packaging has arrived, and we are proud to offer it both online and in select Be Fresh retail stores! We’re talking of course about Luumi, a true BC innovator on a mission to unplastic the world. We are one of the very first retailers in the world to sell Luumi containers and straws. Based on the Sunshine coast, they make high quality, premium grade silicone reusable bags, straws, lids, bowls, and more.

Single Use Plastic Packaging Sucks!

We all know single-use plastic food packaging pollution sucks and is clogging up our oceans and harming the ecosystem. Every year, 1 million seabirds and 100,000 marine animals die from ingesting plastic each year. So, on June 20th 2018 we officially banned single-use plastic straws from our cafes/markets. Compostable straws by request were the first step, but offering affordable, safe, high quality reusable straws was always the goal. Enter Luumi: a local, spunky upstart with a good products and awesome mission. Be a part of the reusable packaging solution and join us by supporting Luumi to tackle the single use plastic epidemic that’s plagueing our world!

Why Silicone?

Silicone is made from sand, not plastic. What’s better is that Luumi only uses 100% platinum silicone, the cleanest highest quality you can buy – this food-grade silicone means there won’t be able transfer to speak of. It also means no BPA, no PVC, phthalates, or toxic low quality fillers here. The best part: silicone is super versitile and convenient – it’s dishwasher, freezer, oven, and microwave safe and if you drop it, it won’t break! The perfect material for

Without further ado, here’s the lineup:

Straws

Slurp your smoothies in style! We’re selling 4 packs of these suckers on the SPUD.ca site, and singles at our Be Fresh retail locations. They bend, wiggle, and wobble and are guarunteed to not to transfer taste. They’re durable, flexible, non-toxic and come in 4 funky colours.

Lids

These lids are really cool, they can help you turn just about ANYTHING (with a 8-10cm diameter mouth) into a reusable, spill-proof drinking vessel. Buy them bundled with a matching straw, or just plain to seal in your yogurt, kombucha, or really anything you wanna put in there. Get em in clear, yellow, blue, or red on SPUD today!

Bowl

Or is it a bag? This multipurpose bag/bowl holds 1.5L when closed. It stands upright for easy filling, it clamps shut to become watertight, it folds into a bowl for eating a plastic-free lunch, it turns inside out for easy cleaning, and you can even use it to sous vide! Get them online or in store.

Bag

Your sandwich has a new best friend! Keep your food ultra fresh and your lunchbag ultra-not-spilled on with the airtight button seal on this bag. As with all Luumi products, this bag is dishwasher, microwave, oven, and freezer safe so no matter where your lunching takes you, the Luumi sandwich bag will have your back. These bags are available in blue and red on the SPUD.ca website.

You can buy any of these products online at SPUD.ca, or get them at select Be Fresh retail locations.
