ECO Lunchbox Contest

ECOlunchbox  Contest

ECOlunchbox Contest

 

 

I don’t know about you but I bring my lunch to work with me almost everyday. I don’t generally like to use plastic bags or disposable wrapping because it really is just a waste of time and packing. I prefer to use tupperware but after eating certain foods some of it stains or will always feel greasy no matter how many times I wash it, then I feel bad having to recycle it because it probably could be used more but I feel like it’s not clean.  Food containment is a constant struggle.  I was looking for some eco-friendly alternatives and I found ECO Lunchbox. I like the concept of stainless steal which does not retain odors, stains or residue. They are dishwasher safe (not microwave safe), non-toxic, non-leaching, unbreakable and easier to clean.  They are independently tested and found to be lead free.   I wanted to try ECO Lunchbox because stainless steal just seems like a cleaner way to go than plastic.
I have reused mine with many a different meal and after washing it is good as new. I bring it to work with me everyday. Nothing spills or drips (which happens to me often with my tupperwear).
ECO Lunchbox has tons of other styles including lunch bags, snack sacks, napkins, bags, utensils and my fave the lunch tray. I personally never liked the concept in school but now it seems so appealing. I am one who likes to segregate her food. Learn more about ECO Lunchbox here!

Great Tips for “Brown Bagging” It

Bringing your lunch to school or work is an excellent to save the planet & the Earth.  You can reduce, reuse and recycle your very own meals.  I know sometimes the idea of left overs or bringing your lunch doesn’t always sound appealing but when you see the difference it makes in your wallet you will be excited at how much you save!  Also you can show co-workers/ other students how eco-friendly you are.  Here are some east quick tips that will save you some money, time & the environment:

1. Bring you lunch in a reusable bag Envirosax Organic Cotton – Un Chien
2. Bring your own non-disposable water bottle & fill it up with watever you want – eco-Friendly – stainless steel water bottle order here
3. When you pack your own lunch you can make it as healthy as you want Oskri Organics Coconut Bar, Original, Gluten Free, 1.86-Ounce Bars (Pack of 18)
4. You can control your portions Mini Kitchen bags
5. Cook extra food for dinner to bring with you the next day Annie’s Homegrown Organic Family-Size Shells & White Cheddar Mac & Cheese, 10.5-Ounce Boxes

8. Be prepared. Try to think ahead of time how versatile the items you purchase at the grocery store will be for all your meals and snacks  Olive Nation.
9. Be creative. You are the one that will have to eat this food. To make sure you don’t give up and just buy something quick make sure you change it up regularly so you stick to your healthy/eco-friendly plan Bare Fruit 100% Organic Bake-Dried Apples.
