I am the queen of plastic containers in my house, I use them for everything. However in recent years, I have been much more careful with what kind of plastic containers I have been purchasing. I try to buy ones that are earth-friendly, and won't release toxic chemicals when microwaved, and are easy to clean. I have yet to worry about sending lunches to school, but with a toddler and preschooler I am forever taking snacks, etc on the road whenever we head out. And I use plastic containers for items like goldfish crackers, fruit, Cheerios, and so much more. But yet, I have never found a container that can fit more than one item, at least not one I liked a lot! Until now.
Recently I became aware of a company that has plastic containers that meet all of my requirements. Easy Lunchboxes is a company that is founded by a mom, who knows all too well about sending lunches and trying to eliminate the amount of waste and containers sent. I remember as a child, forever losing costly plastic containers, because I was sent with a gazillion containers with my school lunches, or nasty bags that squished everything. I am so happy that I was sent a set of four Easy Lunchboxes and a Red Bag to try out!
With Easy Lunchboxes I have been able to use them as an addition to my diaper bag, and I do not have to worry about food spilling all over. It has been great! Plus I keep one in the bag, one in the car, and then have the other two ready to fill for bigger car trips or park trips, etc.
I know once my children are in school, these will come in so handy!
I mentioned that I try to find containers that are earth-friendly, and with Earth Day only a few days away, Easy Lunchboxes are a perfect fit! All materials used in Easy Lunchboxes are food and child safe and have passed strict FDA requirements. These products also contain NO lead, vinyl, PVC, Phthalates, or Bisphenol A (BPA). They are also made of highest grade Polypropylene plastic (#5). Easy Lunchboxes are also microwave, dishwasher, fridge and freezer safe! I love using mine and will definitely be recommending Easy Lunchboxes to those in my life with children (and I love that these work great for adult lunches too!).
I highly recommend Easy Lunchboxes and give it a HUGE thumbs up!
