About the Designer

Environmental Life, the makers of Mintie, aim to help people to make choices that are kinder to the environment by reducing household waste and the use of plastic and chemicals. They are a small, family run business with goals to reduce the plastic we are using and throwing away each day and to feel more confident that the food that we eat is stored in a way that reduces our exposure to BPA’s and other associated toxins. At Environmental Life, they are passionate about what they are doing. They want to provide people with an honest product, that is safe, reusable, durable, long lasting and has minimal impact on our world.

They are a family with two rather wonderful and springy children. These were the motivation behind Mintie. Packing up lunches each day they noticed not only how much plastic wrap and foil they were using but how the plastic boxes storing their foods in would often warp, smell kinda funky over time and always break. They had also started to read more and more about the the exposure to plastics and the potential harm they can do to us all.

Searched the market, they couldn’t really find what they were looking for. They wanted something of a lunchbox solution for children and big kids alike that was well made, durable and didn’t break the bank. It should encourage people to make a balanced meal with interesting ingredients and keep them fresh until eaten. ​

In order to guarantee no transfer of man-made toxins to the food with prolonged use, it could only be made from glass or stainless steel. Glass was ruled out for the reasons of weight and fragility.

The stainless steel products on the market didn’t seem very child friendly and by the time you have added the extras needed for a complete set, rather expensive.

So they decided to see if we could do it themselves. They designed the kind of product they wanted and engaged with a number of suppliers to find the perfect package. They feel that the first offering from the Mintie brand meets their brief but over time they will refine it until it is perfect.

They have always been a bit of a pair of “Eco Warriors,” or maybe more accurately  “Eco Worriers” – knowing that stuff should be done differently but not really knowing where to begin. Making small changes like what we store our food in is a good step to making less of an impact on our precious world and also caring for our inner eco systems by reducing the exposure to chemicals each day.
