What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

Luumi is on a mission to Unplastic the World 

Our awesome reusable, pure platinum silicone bags, lids & straws replace some of the most common ocean polluters, and allow you to stop using single-use plastics and start living a healthier, sustainable lifestyle.

 Luumi is not made of oil like plastics, it's made of the silica, like glass and granite, but has the awesome convenience of being flexible and light weight.

granite, glass and silicone are all made of silica

Luumi contains no PVC, BPA, BPS, Phthalates, plasticizers or fillers of any kind. We use the highest quality LFGB and FDA grade platinum silicone.

Luumi's designs are simple, multifunctional, and easy to clean. Bags turn inside out with no hard to reach corners so cleaning is a snap, both by dishwasher and hand. Straws are flexible, so flex 'em, and twist 'em, and rinse em out! Luumi is freezer, oven, and microwave safe too.

 Durable, colorful and fun, Luumi's great for Unplastic school lunches, camping, backpacking, boating, and is awesome for creating an Unplastic fridge at home :)

Luumi Bowl. Is it a bag, or a bowl? 

It's both! As a bag, it stands upright and is easy to fill. It buttons shut for a simple seal, and clamps shut to become watertight. Great for storage, cooking, freezing, boil in the bag, sous vide and way more!

Great for storage, cooking, freezing, boil in the bag, sous vide and way more! 

 Luumi Bowls also fold into a bowl, making them awesome for eating a plastic free lunch. Camping, Boating, Backpacking and even kicking around town with a home-made salad or curry, these bowls are super useful in an Unplastic life.

Luumi Lunch Bags replace sandwich zipper bags.

 Ideal for a sandwich or snack, the button over design seals up airtight in a lunch box, cooler or the fridge.

 With the addition of a clamp (sold separately), you get a watertight seal great for Unplastic sous vide, freezing & boil in the bag.

Luumi Sipper

Hate the insanity of paper cups? Luumi Sippers stretch over most cups, mugs, & jars (about 8-20 oz) and make a to go cup out of almost anything! 

  The lid has 3 gills in the top, which open up when you sip, and lie flat when you don't.Awesome for smoothies, coffee, water or whatever you like. They don't taste or keep a taste so feel free to mix it up!

Luumi Sucker  

This lid replaces single use plastic smoothie and iced coffee cups, but also replaces water bottles and can be filled for free at Starbucks, water fountains, or at the tap :)

Luumi Suckers have two holes in the top and comes with a straw. The straw seals it up the holes, and you just pops out one end to drink, and put back to seal, simple as dat! 

This lid replaces single use plastic smoothie and iced coffee cups, but also replaces water bottles and can be filled for free at Starbucks, water fountains, or at the tap :)

Luumi Sealer

 This lid has no holes and is super handy for sealing up mason jars, cans, ramekins, and even half an apple!

Say NO to plastic single use straws with Luumi Straws!

Luumi Straws are colorful, flexible and fun! Kids love em, and they are super easy to clean. No need for a straw cleaner with these non-stick, flexible reusables, just stretch em and twist em and rinse em out! Luumi Straws can also be boiled or microwaved and are dishwasher safe.

It feels good to Unplastic your life with Luumi

SINGLE USE IS MADNESS!! and at Luumi we're nuts about plastic waste and it's effect on the Ocean! 

food plastics are the biggest contributor to the plastic gyres growing in the ocean
food plastics are the biggest contributor to the plastic gyres growing in the ocean

Plastic bags, lids, straws, wraps and bottles are some of the biggest ocean polluters, which is devastating our ocean ecology and has to end.

The Luumi line of products are a solid move in that direction, shifting our unconscious single use habit into a conscious, sustainable lifestyle. -Let's Unplastic the World! 

“I have witnessed first hand the global plastic problem and the devastating consequences it has on the oceans’ ecosystem and wildlife,” says Cristina Mittermeier, co-founder of Sea Legacy “The world needs to reduce its plastic dependency and LUUMI is a practical solution to help fight this problem.”

We are proud to announce our partnership with Sea Legacy, a passionate global non-profit founded by Ocean explorers, photographers and biologists Paul Nicklen and Cristina Mittermeier.

Risks and challenges

There are very few risks with producing Luumi, we have a production prototype built and tested with a small production run and is ready to produce.

The biggest challenge will be the logistics of packing them up and getting them to you, which can be a lot of organizational work, but by keeping the perk options simple, we are confidant of our timeline.
