You’ll be amazed at the designs and innovations available today and impressed that you can have a stylish, functional and non-toxic way to carry your lunch (or breakfast, or snack!).

Three-tier stainless steel Bento lunch box is dishwasher safe and free of BPA, PVC , BPS or Phthalates. Carrying bag included.

Vaya Tyffyn 1000 ml Insulated Lunch Box with Bag Mat
Advanced thermal insulation keeps your food warm or cold for up to 5 hours without heat or refrigeration. Leak-proof, non-toxic and eco-friendly. Comes in many other colors and designs. This would be perfect to carry veggies such as Baked Scalloped Potatoes or Bourbon Pecan Mashed Sweet Potatoes.

Perfect for school or office, the removable stainless steel container lets you safely heat your food without the use of a microwave. Outer shell is made from environmentally friendly and nontoxic food grade material. Comes in other colors, as well. I bet some leftover Dutch Oven Balsamic Chicken and Veggies would be great to carry in this lunch box!

Made from linen, it’s insulated, leak-proof and machine washable, too. Can be worn as a cross bag, backpack, or carried  by hand. Comes in many other designs, as well. It is PVC, phthalate, lead, & BPA free.

Looking for an eco-friendly utilitarian lunch box? This one is made of rice husk without any chemical additives and is 100% biodegradable. It’s even dishwasher and microwave safe. Comes with attached spork.

Okay, this thermos can apparently do. it. all. Seriously. It’s also a tea infuser (comes with tea-leaf strainer), it’s also double-wall insulated for hot coffee, tea, or soup or for cold fruit. Comes in different colors and sizes, too. I bet this Cherry Vanilla Protein Smoothie would go great in this thermos!

2 Pack Rustproof Stainless Steel Tableware Dinnerware with Carrying Case
Re-use your cutlery and save waste! This gorgeous stainless steel set comes with its own carrying case (other color choices available) for easy storage and packing.

Earthwise Insulated Lunch Bag Jute Tote (2-pack)

Lunch Bag – Tan Waxed Canvas
Just want to brown bag it and forget the electronics and multi-layers of bento-like containers? Then check out this waxed canvas re-usable bag. Très chic. 😉

Planet Wise Zipper Sandwich Bag
Reusable, made in the USA, and PVC, BPA, latex, pthalate and lead free.
