Whether you are looking for safer BPA Free Insulated Lunch boxes for kids, reusable lunch bags or a sturdy Stainless Steel Lunch box to take to the office you’ll find a great selection here on Green Elephant.
When shopping for kids lunch boxes there are a number of things to consider. Some kids lunch boxes contain PVC, Phthalates or BPA which have been shown to leach into food in some circumstances and are probably best avoided. An insulated lunch box or insulated lunch bag makes a good choice as they keep food fresher and safer for longer especially in summer months. Kids can be pretty tough on lunch boxes; apparently they think they are also a seat, something to stand on or kick around the playground! So, durability is certainly something else to consider – a stainless steel lunch box whilst initially more expensive should give many years of trouble free service even with “heavy” use.
We also have some funky Lunch Totes that are an environmentally safe alternative for anyone wishing to avoid Vinyl or PVC lunch bags or boxes. They are durable, lightweight and washable and some designs include a large pocket that can hold an ice pack to keep your lunch cool.
A double layer tiffin style lunch box is one of our favourites. They look so cute but are super practical too – dishwasher safe, made with food grade stainless steel and complete with a carry handle. The extra layer makes it a great option for separating a salad from your other snacks.
If you are taking a sandwich for lunch have you tried using Beeswax Food Wraps or Sandwich Baggies instead of cling film? They are washable, reusable and durable which means less plastic ends up in landfill. You can find our full range in our Food Wraps & Bags category.
