School has started and you’ve begun to pack those lunches again. That’s my favorite part. Brody’s first day of preschool was this morning and he couldn’t wait to go. He carried his backpack and his lunchbox all the way there! I love to pack Brody healthy foods and he likes to help me. Although, he’s too young to do it by himself, I definitely see him packing his own lunch in the near future. He loves to do everything else without my help. He’s really a little stinker!! If your kids are old enough, have you taught them to pack their own “healthy” lunch? ECOlunchbox thinks it’s important not only to pack “healthy”…but to pack green!
ECOlunchbox specializing in stainless steel bento boxes, artisan cotton lunchbags, napkins and other eco-friendly lunchware accessories.
When Sandra Ann Harris, Founder of ECOlunchbox started her battle of making “healthy” lunches back when her kids were in preschool, she longed to find containers that were easy to open, good for the environment, and were not throwaways. She tried many different types of containers, bags, plastics, etc. but nothing held up to her expectations or her needs. Discontented with everything out on the market, she finally developed a lunch kit for ages 3 to 103.
Sandra went back to the basics of using stainless steel and cotton – and that’s it…no vinyl, no disposals, no plastic or PVC or lead. She has created stainless steel bento boxes that are easy to open and safe for the environment. Their artisan bags are made of cotton and nothing else.
I’m thrilled I get to write up a review on their oval bento lunchbox. This will be Brody’s next lunch. The lids are easy enough for him to open and if not, he’s got some very nice teachers that will help him. These are very well made. My only worry is that Brody will throw them in the trash when he cleans up. He did that last year. But hopefully, his teacher’s this year will keep a better eye out on that. I do have a small healthy eating tip for you all. I read where you should always put a “green” vegetable on your child’s plate, even though they may not eat it, eventually they’ll pick up on it and may want to try it. I know Brody will not eat fresh spinach, but a good presentation just might invite him to do so!
Have you considered going plastic free? I’m slowly but surely going green around my house. Yes, it might cost a little more, but knowing my family is living w/out such chemicals and unfriendly products is enough to make me want to spend a little more.
If your focus is on living a greener lifestyle, and/or organic cooking and gardening, buying non-toxic products, or perhaps you haven’t taking that first step to go green, but want to, take a minute to check out ECOlunchbox and their bento lunchboxes and lunchbags. You may never want to buy plastic again!
