Bento Lunch Boxes
BPA free, so I don't have to worry about the chemicals that could be leaching into my son's food. Secondly, because of all the cool little boxes that come inside the box, I don't have to add to the landfill with my ziplock baggies. Getting rid of any disposable things is one of the most simple green things you can do. It's easier said then done, I know.
These cool little boxes that come with it make sectioning off a healthy lunch easy. There's even this tiny box for ketchup or candy or whatever you want to put in there. It also came with silverware. My son now has his very own set of silverware to take to school with him every day.
I paid about $25 for this set, and I know it's a bit pricey for a lunch box. In my mind though, I won't be spending money on sandwich bags and plastic ware over and over again. Its a one time cost that I think in the end will end up being cheaper. You can purchase replacement inner containers online too. If you don't have time to clean them every day, or if one gets tossed out accidentally you can just get what you need.
I think we're ready for school to start now. Colorado starts so early. He'll be in school next Tuesday. :(
