Where does my Goodbyn lunchbox come from?

Goodbyns are designed in Chicago and are made on Earth…

Goodbyn started out as an American brand, made in USA. During our four years of being in business we have become an international brand, sold in over 25 countries. Our goal has always been to solve the problem of trash created by one-time-use packaging and to offer our products at the most affordable price, to as many as possible. We believe we have succeeded on the first account but that our pricing has always excluded a lot more people than we would like. Our mission is still the same - where we make our products has changed. In order to survive as a business, expand our line and make our products more affordable, we made the decision to manufacture overseas. We work with well established factorys that maintain high-safety standards and is working towards sustainable practices. We import only forecasted amounts that will sell domestically - we ship on demand amounts directly to our distributors in other countries - thereby actually lessening the carbon footprint and costs that our exporting created. 

If you have specific questions or opinions about our manufacturing choices, or suggestions on how we could be doing it better, in America, we look forward to hearing from you. Email us: info@goodbyn.com
