Eco-Friendly Lunch Box ~ EasyLunchesBoxes.com ~ Review and Giveaway


My kids and I received a sample from Easy LunchBoxes a few weeks ago.  In the package we received 1 package of Compartmentalized Food Containers and 1 Lunch Bag Cooler.   


I swear to you, these are the best 
kids lunch boxes
since sliced bread.  We've used the Easy LunchBox system at the pool and on day trips.  In the past we've dealt with messy plastic sandwich bags.  Everything, and I do mean everything, gets squished in the plastic bags.  Not to mention, think of all the plastic sandwich baggies sitting in landfills.  So with these food containers I was able to quickly and easily pack our lunches.  I also felt like I was more compelled to make healthier food choices.  Maybe it's because the compartments are the perfect portion sizes for fruits and veggies?  Whereas a plastic baggy makes me think of filling it with chips?  I'm not sure.  Either way, it worked.  The kids loved their lunches and ate every bit of it.
Now I don't know about your kids, but mine are grazers.  It's always such a pain to have to keep pulling out several plastic baggies every time they want to nibble.  I know, there are far worse things to 'complain' about but it's every bit as annoying as when they were babies and thought it was funny to keep throwing the same toy on the floor to watch you pick it up at dinner LOL  But with this Easy LunchBox System all I have to do it pull out the color coded container and remove the lid.  Once done the lid goes back on.  What's great is that the kids (ages 3 and 5) can do the lids and I don't worry about leaking bags.  Nor do I have to go chasing empty  plastic bags that blew away.

Now about those color coded lids.  At first I thought, oh great, the kids will fight over which color they'd get.  But then I got smart - each kid got their favorite color.  End of story.

When I received the package I didn't realize it but two of the thumb tabs for opening the lids were broken.  On the green lid it had completely broken off and the orange lid was 1/2 way broken off.  I e-mailed Easy LunchBoxes customer service to let them know how the lids arrived.  I made sure to let them know that I wasn't asking for replacements or even trying to complain.  The lids still worked 100% fine.  I just wanted to let them know in case the receive similar reports from other customers.  I received a response in record breaking time and was told that occasionally the postal workers like to use their boxes for footballs.  (That cracked me up!)  And whenever they receive a report about lids breaking during shipping they automatically send new ones out.  Despite the fact that I received these as samples to facilitate this review, a new set was immediately shipped out to me.  Now how is THAT for customer service?  Seriously.  It's been a long time since I received such friendly and QUICK customer service.

Before I close I want to touch on a few more important facts.  These containers are not the flimsy disposable plastic containers you see in stores.  These are a hard, SAFE!, plastic that is 100% reusable.  Making them cost effective and eco-friendly lunch boxes!

FDA approved. No BPA, phthalates, lead, vinyl, or PVC. Safe for dishwasher, freezer, and microwave.



With a color for everyone, these are sure to make the perfect Back To School Lunch Box!
