Brown bags and plastic wrap are such a waste. Fortunately, waste-free lunches have become fun and festive. Whether you have a nostalgia-style lunchbox or a modern bento-style case, with a few extra accessories you’ll have the goods you need to never have “snack-bag-throwaway-guilt.” However, the level of guilt in the actual snack is up to you. 😉
Laptop Lunches are American-style bento boxes designed to help you pack nutritious, eco-friendly lunches. The stylish lunch boxes are reusable, recyclable, and dishwasher safe. No phthalates, BPA, or lead in these plastics. And they even come with a book of healthy lunch ideas and creative lunchmaking tips and recipes.
ECOLunchboxes build on the same idea as the laptop lunches, but with a stainless steel twist. I love the tiffin-style of the stacking containers, and the stainless steel is undeniably sturdy and safe.
Ziplocs be gone! ReUsies are a re-usable alternative to sandwich/snack bags, and each one has the potential to eliminate hundreds of plastic bags. ReUsies are 100% cotton lined with leak-resistant nylon and are secured with velcro closures. Easy to clean in the dishwasher or laundry – and great to keep stashed in your purse or glove compartment for emergency snack meltdowns.
