Chowbacca! Approved: ECOlunchbox Three-in-One Food Container Set




Every kid can be hard on their things, and when those things go to school they take even more of a beating. Plastic is bad for people and the environment. It also breaks easily. After a load of research into alternative lunch boxes for my Wee Wonder, I landed on the ECOlunchbox.

This rugged lunchbox is a great bento-style design, 100% food-safe stainless steel, and through three years it has been thrown over the school fence by another kid, dropped, kicked, and abandoned to the wilds of the lost-and-found a few times. It survived it all with a few dignified blemishes and its two large (which I use for sandwiches, mini burritos, pizza slices, carrots and cut fruit, respectively), and one small, (for those juicy orange slices or her grandma's cranberry sauce), containers have been a snap to clean. When my original failed to make it home, I bought a second, as you'll see below.

Note: Since the ECOlunchbox is all-stainless steel construction, no plastic or rubber gaskets are used and therefore the ECOlunchbox does not completely seal. Be careful what you put inside. I'll be recommending a mini thermos soon that has served me well for years. When I send a thermos of soup along, however, the snack portion goes too with a rubber band to hold the lid in place. Simple.

Grandma has a backup ECOlunchbox at her house for school night overnights. The ECOlunchbox isn't just Chowbacca! Approved, it's grandma approved. You'd trust grandma, wouldn't you?
