When Brooklynites Jacqueline and Scot Tatelman started a not-for-profit summer camp for underprivileged kids almost a decade ago, they were shocked to see so many kids show up with their belongings in trash bags. It inspired them to create STATE, a collection of backpacks and school accessories with a strong emphasis on giving back. For every STATE bag sold, one is donated to a child in need (it’s also packed full of school essentials to boot). So far, the pair have delivered over 30,000 backpacks to kids across America.
Making this the most perfect lunchtime combo since peanut butter and jelly, the Rodgers lunch box perfectly fits inside any STATE backpack. It comes fully insulated with a zip around flap, two see through pockets for notes or pictures for your little munchkins and is touched off with the signature STATE rivet in red.
