Eco Friendly Lunch Box Review and Giveaway - Closed




First Impression:  I was so excited when I got the box in the mail from
EasyLunchBoxes.com.
When I opened the box I was definitely not disappointed!  Gavin picked out the red one (he is in a red phrase) and it was a nice rustic red color.  The containers were well made as well and had lids to go with them.
 

Style/Choices: The color choices for your
EasyLunchBoxes.com cooler bag are
black, dark red, olive, purple and aqua.  It is easy to find a color lunch box system to please your eye. 
 
Functionality: The
EasyLunchBoxes.com system is very functional!  The containers are nice and sturdy and the cooler bag easily fits a container, ice pack, and a drink with room to spare!  In fact we went on a picnic and I packed up three of the containers and they all fit into the cooler bag!  

How it Promotes a Healthy Lifestyle:  As you know, the goal of my blog is to promote a healthy lifestyle for myself as well as my children, one of the first things I did was hunt down a eco friendly lunch box system for my family. 
EasyLunchBoxes.com easily fit the bill.  A lunch box system is definitely necessary for a healthy lifestyle, not only because it is a green alternative to the brown paper bag, but because when you have a nice fresh meal packed and ready to go everyday, you have no reason to end up in line at an artery clogging drive thru.  Everynight I lay out the boxes and pack up lunches for my husband, myself, and Gavin - even if we are just staying home.  There is a compartment for our main meal (usually a lean cut protein or salad), a compartment for vegetables, and a compartment for fruit.  It is perfect to help us maintain a well balanced meal. 

Cost Effective: The
EasyLunchBoxes.com system will cost you aproximately $22.  This is a little bit expensive compared to the ones you can get in the market by some name brands.  Though in this case, you get what you pay for.  The cheapy name brand ones are flimsy and you will most likely be replacing them often, where as

EasyLunchBoxes.com has containers that will last a very long time, which of course make it more of a green friendly lunch box.

Information from the site: 
My clever solution to the lunch-packing chore is the simple two piece EasyLunchbox container : The bottom has three compartments to hold an entree or sandwich and two side dishes. The fitted lid (which comes in 4 colors) covers all three compartments at once. No more squished sandwiches, mismatched plastic container pieces to keep track of (matching up all those bottoms and lids was the thing that drove me nuts!) or wasteful baggies. Fits perfectly inside the roomy EasyLunchbox custom carrying bag. And there is still plenty of room to throw in an extra snack or two, whole fruit, perhaps a thermos of soup, drink and ice block.  Flexibility is key, and since so many different things can fit, no matter what menu you choose to include, it packs easily and quickly. It's amazing how much faster, greener, & easier lunch box packing is with the EasyLunchbox system. 

Supporting the waste-free lunch movement, EasyLunchboxes.com offers a reusable, superior solution at a much lower price than other companies.  

Great for large families and those on a limited budget.  
FDA approved. No BPA, phthalates, lead, vinyl, or PVC. Safe for dishwasher and microwave. 
The simple chic design and bright colors of our Cooler Bags can even be personalized! We have included a sturdy grommet in the carrying handle so you can easily attach a pretty key ring, dietary restrictions warning tagor your choice of any type of handcrafted or store bought “flair.” Examples HERE  Our Cooler Bags are made of the highest quality 300D Polyester for premium durability and toughness. Vinyl free (PVC free) & lead free, with an FDA compliant PEVA lining.
