Next up in our Back to School Event, something for your lunch box!
We pack many lunches during the school but try to stray away from disposable food containers. In order to reduce waste and lessen our carbon footprint, our family has chosen to use reusable lunch products. Reusable containers not only keep plastic out of our landfills, but are also easier on our budget!
ReUseIt.com has a wide variety of products to help families lead a waste-free lifestyle, including reusable bags and bottles. Among those, reusable lunch containers! According to the ReUseIt website, “In 2009, the United States generated 13 million tons of plastics waste from containers and packaging….only 7 percent was recovered for recycling“. Those numbers are astonishing!
We recently had the opportunity to try the LunchBots 16 oz. Insulated Stainless Steel Food Container. This BPA free, diswasher safe, Stainless Steel Food Container is perfect for the kids lunchbox! The insulated container is made with food grade stainless steel and is a safe alternative to plastic and glass. The wider mouth enables you to eat from it like a bowl and it keeps foods hot or cold for several hours. The screw on lid is air and water tight preventing leaks in your lunchbox.
The handy arrows on the container help you to know that it is closed properly to prevent leaks. We have used it several times and have not had any leaks! The wider mouth makes it very easy to clean, a huge plus. I was quite surprised at how much this container could hold. This picture shows a full can of chili with room for more!
It’s small enough to fit in your lunch box with your other items, but large enough to hold enough yummy soup, stew, etc. to keep your belly satisfied until dinner! I love knowing that each time the kids or my husband use this durable container, we are keeping disposable containers out of the landfill for years to come!
The LunchBots 16 oz Insulated Stainless Steel Food Container is available on the ReUseIt website for $24.95.
One lucky Kate n’ Kaboodle reader is going to win the LunchBots 16 oz. Insulated Stainless Steel Food Container!
