Hi, I’m Tanja, founder of Frog In A Teacup. I am a proud mother to 3 daughters who inspire me daily to create a better world any way I can.
When my daughter started kindy, I calculated how much cling film I could potentially use during her educational years for all the ‘millions’ of lunches I would need to pack. This astounding waste of time, money, and single-use plastic rubbish needed an alternative so the kitchen wraps I had made turned into Lunchbox Sets and Frog In A Teacup was born.
My passion for simple living and sustainability drives me to share these beautiful eco-friendly alternatives with our youth to normalise sustainable practices from the beginning of their lives. I make all the wraps in Brisbane by hand and with love. I named Frog In A Teacup after 2 of my favorite things, Australian Red-eyed tree frogs and tea (Strong, Sweet & Creamy thanks!) and hope to meet you soon.
Frog In A Teacup has been an amazing journey from the start, I am so grateful to provide a sustainable solution which is better for your wallet, your children's health and the planet.
Helpful Hints and Tips for Parents / Carers
- Wipe breadcrumbs off with a dry cloth when you are in a hurry. These wraps are naturally antibacterial so you can rest assured they will be ok for your loved ones.
- You will find ways that work best for you. For starters, try wrapping the food items much like a gift and press wrap together to seal with the heat of your hands
- Make all weeks lunches on the weekend and freeze in the wraps to make mornings less chaotic
- Allocate a set for each child and give them a place to put them after school. If they aren't there when you glance over, you know your child needs to empty their bag without you having to delve into the unknown contents of schoolbags
