3 Eco-Friendly Containers for School Lunches

Packing lunch in reuseable containers is totally green for both the planet and your wallet. According to Zen Habits, brown bagging meals is a simple way to save $3,000 a year! Here are three non-toxic containers perfect for packing lunch for kids and adults.

Eco Lunchbox

ECO Lunchbox Three-in-One container has been on my list of awesome things I want but don't need (as I work mostly from home) since I first spotted it at the Park Slope Food Coop last year. It's a Bento-style stainless steel box, so no worries about BPA and all that other bad stuff. It's $22 at Amazon.

Insulated LunchBots container
LunchBots also makes stainless steel food containers. I like that they come with funky colored lids. LunchBot containers also come in a variety of sizes and compartments; many are leaf-proof and some are insulated. You can buy a green insulated one for $25 and an assortment of others at Amazon or at

Handmade Reusable Sandwich Bags by The Preppy Owl Boutique in CT.
Reuseable sandwich and snack sized bags in adorable prints are all over Etsy. Many are made with a food-safe nylon lining that is leak resistant and easy to clean. The Preppy Owl Boutique is offering a set of 4 reuseable sandwich bags on sale for just $18 and you can pick the prints!
