New Eco Lunchboxes provide a worry-free container for school lunches.
Spending $50 a week on lunches out is so passé. But, before you join the pack-a-lunch trend, make sure your containers aren’t harming the environment—or you. Does your child’s vinyl lunch bag contain lead? How safe are the chemicals in your plastic wraps and containers?
Fortunately, Eco Lunchbox kits are plastic-free, waste-free, BPA–free, PVC–free, vinyl-free, sweatshop–free and all-around eco-friendly—perfect for your kids at school or you at work.
“It’s a no-waste kit that’s sustainable and has everything you need,” says Lafayette resident Sandra Ann Harris, founder and president of Eco Lunchboxes, which has a new collection, featuring hand block–printed fabrics in vibrant spring colors.
Each Eco Lunchbox kit, about $50, comes with a 100-percent cotton, reversible/convertible, machine-washable lunch bag/backpack, three cloth napkins in coordinating colors, a two-layer stackable stainless steel box, and two bamboo sporks.Get your Eco Lunchbox kit or à la carte Eco Lunchbox items at ecolunchboxes.com, or at Diablo Foods and Queen Bee in Lafayette, Rockridge Kids in Oakland, and Natural Grocery Company in Berkeley and El Cerrito.
