“As working mother of two boys, Peggy understands the value of convenience for the on-the -go consumer. She came up with the idea for SpoonLidz on a fortuitous road trip. With two hungry kids, and no spoons for the yogurt she had packed, she created the first SpoonLidz out of the side of a cracker box. Peggy has also invented the 100 per cent compostable paperboard EcoTaster (to replace plastic or bio-plastic sampling spoons), EcoSpoon and the iScoop (to replace those little plastic spoons for gelato and ice cream). Peggy continues to work with food manufacturers to develop sustainable on-package utensil solutions like the PopOut. ”
