Eco-Friendly Lunch Box Giveaway!

Hi Neighbors,

I thought I would try to catch you here At the Fence before I started dinner. I have a new product to share with you. It is Easy Lunch Boxes. I have to tell you these are really great. My lunch box is purple. My daughters, 9 and 12, both love that color. The insulated lunch box, or cooler bag is available in a variety of colors (Black, Dark Red, Olive, Purple and Aqua). They are vinyl free, pvc free, and lead free, with FDA compliant PEVA lining. They can even be washed in a washing machine (cold water, gentle cycle, air dry).



Put together with the compartmentalized containers and you have a near perfect lunch box. The containers come in 4 to a pack with 4 different colored lids. So, assign each child a color for their food container. It has 3 compartments. One large enough for a sandwich and the other two for fruit, or snacks. The containers are of course made of BPA free plastic. They are safe for the refrigerator, freezer, microwave and dishwasher. You can prepare them the night before and in the morning just grab them stick them in the appropriate lunch box add a bottle of water, or extra piece of fruit and go. For a really hungry teen or husband there is enough room in the bag for 2 of the containers!




So, not only are they convenient, they are reusable (supportive of a green lifestyle), and you can pack healthy food for your family! It puts you in control of content and portion size. Check out their FAQ page for more information. And while there you might want to look at their recipes, name tags, etc in their Neat Ideas.

Here is some information directly from Easy Lunch Boxes:
"Born out of my response to unhealthy school lunch programs, EasyLunchboxes.com started from the desire to send my 3 kids to school with a nutritious meal, using little to no wasteful packaging. But the EasyLunchbox System is not just for kids. Adult size meals fit perfectly too.

EasyLunchboxes.com was launched in December, 2009 and is quickly becoming the new favorite among affordable and green lunch box solutions!
The EasyLunchbox System has been rated TOP CHOICE by many independent reviewers. Read their reviews HERE.
I was like other frustrated moms - I didn't like throwing together lunches during the morning rush. So much time was wasted sorting through a cabinet of mismatched food containers while trying to pack 15-25 well-balanced lunches per week. I struggled to find something that would help me pack lunches fast, without resorting to the ‘convenience’ of expensive, pre-packaged ‘fast-food.’ Most importantly, I wanted something attractive, eco-friendly, and made of food-safe materials that I didn’t have to wash by hand.
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 tag, or 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."

Easy Lunch Boxes is a company worth sharing At the Fence. And they are going to give the winner a lunch bag (in your choice of color), and one set of containers! Does that sound good to you?

my daughter likes to eat lunch from home and often it ends up squished on the bottom of her backpack. These are hard enough so that they will keep the lunch from getting squished and also are better for the environment than the paper and plastic bags we sometimes use!

I love that these lunch boxes nest inside each other to take up less room in your cupboard. I really really need a set of these. My girls have decided to start taking their own lunches to school and we are always struggling in the morning to find container with matching lids and getting everything ready to go out the door. I would love to have these to ease my whole system. Thank you for the chance!

I am always fighting to find containers to fit smaller snacks...I usually end up have 3 or 4 oversized containers. It's such a hassle when you have to commute each day!

My daughter is starting on the specific carbohydrate diet after being diagnosed with yet another autoimmune illness. I want to make the transition as fun/easy as possible and a new lunchbox would definitely help. I love that these have compartments and enough room in the cooler to add anything that can't be in the compartments. And that they're made without BPA, etc. is a big plus too!
