Always striving to be a good green parent and set an example for my child, I did a little digging and uncovered a few good ways to pack my child’s lunch this school year … take a peek:
(above) Go Green Lunch Box Set
This set was created by a mother who was appalled by all of the waste she had been creating by packing her 2 girls’ lunches every day. The inside section of this Go Green Lunch Box is made of polypropylene and silicone and the set comes with a stainless steal drink container. The bags come in a number of different designs. My favorite feature is the white board inside the bag which allows you to write notes to your little tyke.
Set for $32.99 @ gogreenlunchbox.com
(above) Planet Friendly Stainless Steel Lunch Box
This was the most eco-conscious and still stylish set I found. The box is made of stainless steel. The carry bag is certified lead-, phthalate- and BPA-free. It is made of 100%-recycled fabrics derived from plastic bottles. The bag seems a little plain but the design comes with changeable magnets for the outside of the stainless steel container.
Complete set for $59.95 @ planetbox.com
(above) Lunchkins Sandwich and Snack Bags
These are great alternatives to Ziploc bags. Stylish, dishwasher safe, lead- and phthalate-free – they’re a fun option, and perfectly suited for a little sandwich or snack.
Sandwich bags are $8.95 @ reuseit.com and LunchSkins Snack bags are $7.95
(above) Dabbawalla Insulated Bags
These bags are made of neoprene so they can keep the temperature of the food. The bag is certified to be lead- and PVC-free. The bags come in 10 different adorable designs and they are machine washable!
