Back to School with Eco Lunch Boxes

Nothing screams back to school more than making sure you have everything on the school requirements list: paper, notebooks, No. 2 pencils, crayons, highlighters – the list goes on and on! Every year I start the school preparations by searching the house for remnants of last year’s school supplies. I found pencil cases, sharpeners, a still-new package of markers, and her lunch box from last year. And there was something smelly in it. I decided it was time for a new lunch box.

When my daughter first started attending pre-school, I tried to make her school snacks cute – her sandwiches might be heart-shaped and her fruit cut into stars – but as the years went on I realized she didn’t really care what her food looked like, so with that added pressure of making food look adorable off my plate, I continued to provide her with healthy food in waste-free containers. 

This Tri Bento Stainless Steel Lunch Box from EcoLunch Box is practical, fun, and comes in a reversible artisan fabric bag. Inspired by the Indian ‘tiffin’ boxes, it easily clips apart into three separate containers.

My daughter absolutely loves this lunch box, saying that it’s “the coolest lunch box she’s ever seen”. Score 1 for Mom (and EcoLunchBoxes)! I think my favourite benefit of the Tri Bento lunch box are the three stackable layers – I’ve tried other lunch boxes in the past, always made of plastic, that have separate containers that took up a ton of space in her lunch bag. It became hard to offer her variety and a waste-free lunch, which is important at her school.

EcoLunch Boxes are made of food-grade stainless steel and all components are dishwasher safe. They are plastic-fee, waste-free, BPA-free, PVC-free, petroleum-free and vinyl-free. The more I read about all the toxins that plastics have in them, even ones that claim they are BPA-free, the more I am trying to be proactive about what we’re putting our food in. I’m so happy to find such a great alternative to the plastic boxes I was using!

While stainless steel is extremely durable, I do wonder how long the Tri Bento lunch box will last without getting a few dings and dents in it. The only other concern I have is that a normal-large sandwich will not fully-fit in the round container, and I might recommend the square tri-bento box instead.
