Spring Fever Event: Green Your Lunch Giveaway

Welcome to the Spring Fever Event! (Made possible by our hostess Shell over at {Not Quite} Susie Homemaker.)

From now until April 21st, I’m teaming up with over 35 other blogs to bring you the best in spring-themed prize packages. Since we’re celebrating Earth Month right now, my prize package is here to help you go a little greener! :)

Getting rid of plastic is no easy task, so I’ve found that it helps to do it in stages. Pick one thing, replace it with a more eco-friendly, non-toxic option, and then move on to the next.

Food storage is a great place to start. I can’t tell you how many of those horrid little plastic containers I used to have. The lids never matched up, they always got yucky stains, and I just hated them. When I found out that they were probably leaching toxic chemicals into our food, I hated them even more. I mean, who wants to spend tons of time and money making sure their food is as healthy as can be, only to expose it to toxic plastics?! Not this mom.

That’s when glass and stainless steel entered the picture.

While glass is great for microwaving, I really love stainless steel for packing lunches, and lately I’ve been using the Three-in-One lunch set from EcoLunchbox. It’s perfect for both kids and adults.

Pack it up bento-box-style, or send along a sandwich. Either way, your food will stay fresh and safe, surrounded by nothing but stainless steel. No chemicals to leach, no plastic to stain, no unnecessary waste to throw away. ┬áThe latches hold the bottom two containers tightly together (and they’re kid-friendly, so no worries about whether little hands will be able to access their lunch) and the third container is great for snacks, sides or dips.

Now these containers do not have rubber or plastic seals, so it’s important to note that they can leak. I’d definitely use them for dips, yogurt or applesauce, but maybe not soup or anything with actual liquid in it.

I’ve been using my EcoLunchbox to carry my lunch to the office, and it’s so convenient. I love that it doesn’t take up a lot of room in the office fridge, because space is always at a premium in there. It’s perfectly sized for the appropriate portions so there’s no wasted space, and it’s easy to clean.

What more can you ask for? Form, function, and friendly to both you and our friend, Earth. Love that. :)

Next, I want one of these, also available from EcoLunchbox. Who ever said lunch couldn’t be stylish? ;)

So, as I said above, my prize package contains everything you need for a “greener” lunch. But, since I’m all about instilling healthier, crunchier habits in our little ones as well, I’ve made this prize package all about them! Of course, ┬áthe EcoLunchbox is great for moms and dads, but this package also includes the following:

One lucky winner will receive a “Green Your Lunch” prize package valued at over $50!

  • One ECOLunchbox Three-in-One Set (MSRV $24.00)
