CHICAGO START-UP LAUNCHES ‘THE POWCH!’ – A REUSABLE DRINK AND FOOD POUCH
TO END WASTEFUL DISPOSABLES AND ENCOURAGE NUTRITION ON-THE-GO!
(DESIGNED AND MANUFACTURED IN THE USA)
The Company’s founder and POWCH! creator, Karen Orlich, originally developed the product over three years ago to provide an alternative to the disposable, fruit and vegetable pouches on the market. “They’re expensive, hold very little food, and are terrible for our environment…2.5 BILLION single use pouches go into landfill every year”, states Karen. (See 2015 promotional video below for more details).
The k.o. kidz POWCH! is made of a soft, durable, easy-to-clean, waterproof fabric that is BPA and PVC free. “This fabric is so durable that it’s used as the liner in bullet proof vests for the US military!”, Karen adds.
THE POWCH! can be filled with everything from smoothies and baby food to condiments and cut up vegetables. It has been successfully tested with dozens of kids and adults as well as lab tested for extensive repeated use.
Comments from Testers:
“The kids enjoy it. Seals completely without risk of leaking and it’s easy to store and clean. My son didn’t want to give it back after testing!” – Mina F.
”Love the way it washes and cleans up so easy – you can flip it inside out. Love the concept and how you can reuse and reuse.” – Sara R.
