I don’t know about you, but when I take the time to prepare lunches a head of time if I am going to be away from home I feel so much better. I feel better knowing exactly what is being put into my body but I also physically feel so much better! We live in such a disposable world. For convenience sake, as well as companies pocketbooks, everything is marketed for convenience. Use it one time and toss it. Why worry with cleaning and reusing it. Well I personally don’t think that is a better solution.
We have long had lunch boxes and packed items in reusable container if at all possible. When I came across Smart Planet’s collapsible eco lunch box it changed my perspective. No longer were individual containers needed and then a lunch box of sorts to hold your containers. It is all in one!
This is so cool! It is expandable and increases to double its size. Then when you are finished, simply fold the compartments back in for easy storage. It has three compartments, one larger size that is plenty big for a sandwich or main course and two smaller sizes for veggies, fruits or other snacks. I know there are a few similar lunch boxes on the market but do you know what else makes Smart Planet’s eco lunch box different? It has a separate compartment on the lid to hold condiments! I used this when I sent Hubby a leftover hamburger for lunch and it worked great. I used the side compartments to hold lettuce, tomato, onion and pickles and then put some mayo in the top compartment and he was good to go.
The lid latches securely on all sides so you get a really secure fit. I wanted to see how well the lid actually sealed, so I filled it with spaghetti and then the sauce separately in the side compartments and shook it, praying it wouldn’t leak. (Maybe not the smartest thing to do) Much to my relief, it held everything in with no leaks. Since we are looking to eliminate waste, what about carrying around silverware? The people over at Smart Planet thought about that also! There is a snap-on utensil holder that contains a great spork! So with one washable utensil you are covered.
The Collapsible Eco Lunch Box is made from silicone and is also microwave and dishwasher safe. I am very impressed with how well it holds up and how much it really does hold! I love not having to have multiple containers to put things in. Smart Planet’s eco lunch box cuts down on waste and also simplifies the process of being prepared and packing lunches ahead of time. I am a fan!
The Collapsible Eco Lunch Box retails for $17.99. You can connect with Smart Planet online where they offer many different items all with the intent of reducing waste and also on Facebook and Twitter.
