I’m a fan of the waste free lunch. The last thing I want to do is send my kids or husband off with a trash filled lunch. Even more important is to keep their food safe. My family also appreciates a lunch that still resembles the food it is when they open it several hours after I’ve packed it.
Enter my new favorite way to pack lunches, LunchSense. These innovative lunch systems meet every requirement I have! They enable a waste free lunch, are made out of safe materials which means my family won’t be ingesting leached in chemicals and the boxes are even machine washable!
What I really love are the inner containers. The lunch boxes come with a set of fully lidded containers made of polypropylene (#5) and the drink containers are polypropylene or polyethylene (#2). In the words of Nancy Owen Myers- founder of LunchSense, “These (plastics) are considered by GreenPeace and others as “food-safe”, but I prefer to use the term “time-tested”.”
More information and contest after the jump.
We were sent the medium box to try out and once I got used to opening and closing the box (a matter of minutes), I really enjoyed it! Did I mention that the box itself folds out into a lunch mat (which also makes for easier cleaning, simply fold it out and wipe down or toss into the washing machine). My husband was impressed and he is a hard one to please. He thought the boxes were appropriate for all ages (kids and adults alike) and really appreciated that all the containers have lids. Lack of lidded containers is his biggest pet peeve with our children’s current lunch systems.
The website touts these boxes as EASY, HEALTHY, and COOL. What more could we ask for in a food storage and transport system? You may also be glad to hear that your lunch system may arrive in any number of (other companies) cardboard boxes. LunchSense believes in reusing cardboard boxes versus recycling them. Why not get the maximum life possible out of a shipping box?
