Though they’re ultra convenient, pre-packaged snacks and plastic disposables are starting to be frowned upon in many schools and organizations. It’s sort of a dismal time for goodies like pudding cups, Lunchables, and juice boxes; all stuff I thought meant eating like royalty back in the days. According to the latest, lunch meat contains nitrates, processed cheese is full of salt and chemicals, cheap plastics expose us to cancer-causing phthalates, and you know what they say about too much sugar. *sigh* While they definitely have a valid argument, change has folks frustrated and scrambling for better solutions. It also means changing habits, and we can change the way we pack both our own lunches as well as our kids’ lunches with all-in-one, reusable lunch containers. Sent Packing Lunch Bins give parents a good starting point for sending their kids to school with better foods while leaving a less obnoxious carbon footprint.
Bye bye, brown bags. Bon voyage, plastic bags. Adieu, drink boxes. Your services will no longer be needed. Not as long as this reusable lunch bin/box hybrid is around, with its five neatly divided sections and included 8 oz. drink bottle.
- BPA- and phthalate-free
- Made of FDA approved materials
- Not microwave safe
- Includes over 100 stickers to personalize
- 100% recyclable
- Made of polypropylene
- Dishwasher-safe (top rack)
Kids will love the lunch bin because they are goofy and fun, especially when it comes time to stick on all 100 stickers. For some unknown reason some kids panic when food touches other food, so the separated compartments will help keep the peace. There are two generous sized compartments and two smaller ones. Then, there’s a drink bottle included that has its own compartment in the center.
Parents will love the lunch bin for the ease of not having to find random containers and cleaning them afterwards. Teachers will enjoy not having to open more lids that little hands can’t quite open. Then everyone benefits from less trash going into the landfills.
Four colors of the Sent Packing Lunch Bins are available at the Land of Nod for $24.95 each.
Obviously, adults won’t be respected being seen with a Sent Packing Lunch Bin, but here are some great lunch boxes for grown-ups that are also good for the earth: the Ojue Japanese Lunch Box, Three-Tier Hyakka Bento Box, and the Lunchman Sandwich Box.
