With both of the girls in school this year, that is double the lunches for me to pack. And double the worry about the products I use to pack these lunches! With so many lunch items having chemicals like BPA in them, I have to be extra vigilant in what I buy. Aside from that, I want to have less waste. If we can get reusable, safe lunch items that can be washed each night, instead of being thrown away at school and filling up landfills. But where can you go to find all your eco-friendly items in one place? In our area, we have stores that carry eco-conscious products, but it is sparse and the selection is narrow. Not to mention needing to run from one store to another to gather everything I want or need and still being left empty-handed with some products. This is why I was so excited to learn about The Ultimate Green Store. The Ultimate Green Store is your one-stop online shop for green products that will make Mother Earth smile. I was excited to work with The Ultimate Green Store to review their Stainless Steel 3 in 1 Bento Lunch Box. They also have generously offered to give one lucky Savory Savings reader a $20 gift code to pick out some green products of your own!
What did I think?
The Stainless Steel 3 in 1 Bento Lunch Box is a great looking box that is compact and perfect for little hands. The average child’s lunch has three items: main item (sandwich, wrap, etc), fruit/veggie and snack item. If your kiddos are like mine, they do not like their food to mix and match with one another. Especially if you have fruit packed in the box, they would not want it touching their sandwich! This box has two layers and a nested box inside one layer, effectively keeping the food separated and neatly packed. I decided to use this box for Miss LadyBug’s lunch at daycare since she tends to be a bit more particular about her food than anyone in the house. I packed her carrots with dip, blueberries, gluten-free pizza and a snack bar. The nesting box was perfect to fit ¼ cup blueberries and has a lid that fits securely, but not so much that she cannot open it. I added in a ¼ cup of carrots and there was just enough space for a little dip container. The bottom portion easily held the leftover piece of gluten-free pizza that I had made the night before, and I threw in a snack bar for her, since it was in a wrapper, I was not worried about it “touching” her other food. The pieces snap back together quickly and make a great looking compact box that takes up little space in our daycare bag!
I love the size, style and purpose of this Stainless Steel 3 in 1 Bento Lunch Box. It eliminates plastic bags from our lunches and is a great way to be more green in our lives! I should point out that these boxes are not completely leak-proof, since there are no plastics or synthetics used in this product. I can say though, we never had a leak problem in everything I have packed so far. You will also want to use an ice pack if you have something that needs to stay cold, as this is stainless steel and not insulated. The bento lunch box is dishwasher safe and cleans really easily!
