Reusable Lunch Containers

School is still a couple of months away but I’ve already begun doing some research in reusable lunch options. I want to say no to disposable plastic. I’m thinking it’s a good idea to start the search early, I can peruse the variety of products that are out there and begin collecting some recipes/ideas as to just what I’ll be packing.

There are many choices available so I’ve been compiling a list which I’m happy to share. I’ll most likely be mixing and matching with a variety of reusable sandwich/snack bags as well as a few containers for more messy foods like yogurt and dips. My main concern is durability — I’m hoping to not replace things year after year, but price is also a concern. And I’ll also be using these for my lunches as well! Some of these are on-line shops but I’ve included places where you can look online but hopefully there’s a store near you that you can walk or bike to.

KidsKonserve.com
Target has a nice selection
Easylunchboxes
containerstore.com
Oompa: (Many of these I’ve seen at Whole Foods)
Ecolunchboxes
Laptoplunches
Lands’ End: I see that Lands End has a nice selection of matching eco-friendly options (though it’s not organized very well) and you can get them personalized.
