Bringing your lunch to work or school is an easy way to eat a healthier diet, reduce the amount of waste you produce, and a great way to be aware of your portion control. Plastic containers are lightweight and convenient to use but not the safest choice since they can leach toxins into your food and could possibly contain BPA.

I recently found out about Lunchbots, which would be a better choice both for health and environmental reasons. They are made from high quality stainless steel, don’t leach chemicals into your food, are easy to clean and come in two varieties, one with a single container and one with a divider. They were created by a mother who wanted to eliminate plastic from her children’s daily lunch.



Both Lunchbots:

  • are 6.25″ x 4.5″ x 1.75″
  • and have a 100% Stainless Steel container and lid

Each of the Lunchbots available are $14.99 and can get to you with free shipping in the United States by using the code “FREESHIP09” at checkout. This code doesn’t have an expiration date.

    Oooh, these look great. I’m going to have to check out the website.

    What non-plastic options are there for those of us who microwave our lunches?

    To microwave anything, I would use a ceramic bowl or plate – never plastic. I always kept one in my desk at work to use daily.

    I just read this and was wondering about the safety of stainless steel containers. Like rust that may occur from wear or wash. Has there any issues.
