Easy Lunchboxes Waste Free Lunchbox Review and Giveaway...



We recently had the opportunity to review the EasyLunchboxes system of bento boxes with a cooler bag.



About Easy Lunchboxes:
"Mornings spent in chaos making breakfast, beds, & lunch boxes?
The EasyLunchbox system makes it simple to organize, and quickly pack healthy lunches without wasting money, time, paper or plastic.

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.
The EasyLunchbox System 's design, functionality, and low price has quickly made it a top choice among green lunch box solutions since it came on the market in December, 2009. Named a 'top 5 Eco-Friendly Mommy Must Have" by Parents Ask, 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. Check out our yummy lunch gallery for some healthy inspiration!

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, freezer, and microwave.
The simple chic design and bright colors of our Cooler Bags can even be customized!
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.”

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."

What we thought: We loved our EasyLunchbox system!! It really was as easy as 1-2-3!! The cooler bag worked great at keeping food cold and we could fit several containers when we were taking lunch for more than one person. I really loved the colorful lids on the spacious containers and the fact that they are reusable and dishwasher safe! They are very sturdy and hold more than enough food for a meal:) The cooler bag also comes in a variety of cute colors and is super easy to clean. EasyLunchboxes are a great way to serve food-on-the-go stylishly for anyone in your family and reduce your carbon footprint at the same time! ABCD Diaries gives EasyLunchboxes an A+!

  4. EasyLunchbox containers are made from FDA-approved, food-safe polypropylene (#5). They are the perfect mid-range quality between the low-cost disposable containers you find in the market, and the high-end permanent containers (like Tupperware).

  30. I learned that you can remove odors from a lunch bag by placing inside, a plate w/a slice of bread that has been soaked in white distilled vinegar. Zip and leave overnight. Amazing tip, I'm going to use it to try and stretch the life of my old lunch bag!

  74. Please note that the lids are not super tight fitting as they are meant to be opened easily by small children. If you were to put a sandwich in the container, turn it upside down and shake it, the lid would most likely fall off. That's normal for our containers. That's why we recommend carrying them upright in our cooler bags.
    haha good to know I would be the one who didn't put the lid on tight enough.

  100. Product (food) safety is our number 1 concern. BPA (Bisphenol A, a hormone-disrupting chemical) is used in some "microwave safe" plastics. When heated, this has been shown to leach out.
