The Green Thirteen #1: LunchBots Eco from The Soft Landing Review and Giveaway (Ends 11/27) CLOSED

Friday, November 13, 2009 Posted by Dina N


Ever since I started reading about concerns that using plastic utensils and storage containers in the kitchen can lead to food contamination, I have tried to reduce the use of plastics at our home. I buy glass containers for food storage, and do not worry about heating up food in them. I use wooden spoons and spatulas for cooking, and replaced all our plastic cutting boards with some made of glass or wood. Stainless steel bottles and food containers are another great alternative to plastic ones.

I recently came across a company that offers a wide selection of safer eating gear. The Soft Landing store is the first of its kind, offering over 45 brands of 100% BPA, PVC and Phthalate-free produ
cts in one convenient place. For kids, The Soft Landing has baby bottles and sippy cups, dishes and utensils, toys, even bibs, pacifiers and high chairs. They also sell BPA free bottles, dishes and lunch gear for adults, as well as pet items.

The Soft Landing sent me the LunchBots Stainless Steel Container Eco for review. I had seen the adorable LunchBots containers online before, and I must say they look even better in real life! These are food containers made from the highest quality stainless steel. They are BPA, PVC and phthalate free. The LunchBots containers are healthier than plastic and better for the environment. They are great for taking your lunch to work, packing school lunches for the kids, or having around for snacks when you are on the go.

The LunchBots containers come in several sizes. I love that all lids are color-coded - the Eco is green, the Uno is blue, the Pico yellow, and the Duo is orange. You can see the complete set here.

The Eco is a larger version of the LunchBots. It is designed for larger portions, and is the perfect size for a salad, large sandwich, or one of those thick wraps that I love so much. The lid is designed to fit tight so food won't fall out. These are not suitable for soups because the LunchBots are not water tight.

Using the LunchBots Eco is better for you and for the environment because it eliminates the use of plastic bags and containers. They also save you money in the long run because you do not have to buy plastic baggies for your snacks and sandwiches. The LunchBots Eco is very sturdy, and I bet will last a long time. I found it is also easier to keep clean than most of the plastic food containers I've seen. All it needs is a light hand washing with a mild detergent.
