Press Release Summary: An Oregon mother fills a void for brown baggers and school

Press Release Body: EUGENE, OR - Nancy Owen Myers, owner and founder of Good Sense
Design, LLC, will be in attendance at The Green Festival in San Francisco November
14-16, 2008 to officially debut the Lunchsense product line to a national audience.
Good Sense Design, LLC offers a line of durable, non-vinyl, machine-washable lunch
boxes, dubbed Lunchsense, with reusable BPA-free leak-proof food containers and
drink bottle, and an ice pack to preserve the contents.

agreed early on that the box should be machine washable" said Myers. "It should
also be easy to pack a lunch box with portion-size appropriate containers that any
child can open and close without spilling."

and allowed the food containers to fit perfectly in the lunch box.

The design process truly became a "family affair" as she was aided along the way by
her husband Mike, a former engineer, and Lisa's husband Peter, an architect. In
spring 2007, their children began carrying the lunch boxes to school. By June 2007
Nancy began taking orders from local parents. Lunchsense launched its first Web
site and began taking online orders in March 2008.

"From the very beginning, Lunchsense lunch boxes were designed to be practical for
parents and environmentally safe for children," explained Myers. "The Green
Festival is a logical venue to nationally debut Lunchsense because it is a large
gathering of environmentally conscientious individuals who are seeking practical
