The Company was founded by Lynn Julian and Chance Claxton back in 2008 after they saw how much lunch waste their children's schools were generating each day. As well as contributing to landfill and pollutants they also felt this was sending the wrong message to the children. Kids Konserve came out of their desire to set an example of conservation for their children as well to empower them to be examples of change for the future. U-Konserve was later introduced as a range more appealing to adults as well as children.
All products are responsibly made in China, India and Taiwan in facilities that are working toward green practices, and are supportive of their mission to reduce waste. Independent agencies audit the working conditions and environmental impact to ensure that the facilities adhere to fair and safe labour practices and environmental standards.
