What’s for lunch? You hope it’s not toxic lead, plastic and vinyl. And whatever delicious, nutritious food you’ve packed should fill up your tummy – not the garbage can, too.
If you don’t have non-toxic and no-waste lunchware in your pantry, it’s time to tool up. With ECOlunchbox, it can be easy for you and your family to ditch the plastic tubs, plastic baggies, pre-packaged cheese sticks, yogurt squeezies, wrapped cookies and food bars.
Why pack homemade lunches made from high-quality, organic ingredients in leachy plastic containers with a vinyl plastic tote? These standard vinyl, insulated lunchboxes that are widely and cheaply available through big-box retailers fall short when it comes to health and reusability.
The food we put in plastic containers and vinyl lunchboxes can become contaminated when it comes into contact with the containers. Additionally, as we handle the plastic containers and the synthetic lunchbox, we are inadvertently touching plastics and our food and introducing plastics into our mouths.
Additionally, keeping these synthetic lunchboxes clean and mildew-free can be very difficult since lining crack and they are not built to withstand machine washing.
Cobbling together a plastic-free, waste-free lunchbox solution that avoids the health risks of vinyl, plastic, lead and aluminum is a daunting challenge in today’s marketplace. That’s why we’ve decided at ECOlunchbox to offer a soup-to-nuts lunchware line specializing in non-toxic, plastic-free solutions, such as our stainless steel bentos, sandwich boxes, snack containers and machine washable cotton lunchbags.
ECOlunchbox can help you think beyond plastic at lunchtime – and crack the door to making healthier lifestyle changes at other times of the day, as well. If you can go green at lunchtime – who knows what else you can accomplish!
