Back to School: Waste-Free Lunch with Kids Konserve.

imageThe lunchbox is not my favorite part of school. Thinking about food sitting in a smelly thermal bag with toxic icepacks and plastic containers that taste like dishwasher or yesterday’s lunch over a period of several hours until lunchtime makes my nose cringe. Not to mention,the amount of waste one little box can generate.

So, I feel much better when I find products like kids konserve and my pet peeves are put to ease.

I have mentioned this eco-friendly brand before here. My favorite thing about kids konserve is that some products are made from recycled materials (the sweat-free ice pack sleeve used to be a plastic water bottle!), and that ev and I can pack a completely waste-free lunch using the stainless steel containers, cloth napkins and food cozies.

Our favorite item this year is the new glass water bottle in a silicone sleeve. Those neon colors really pop!

Did I mention the ice packs are made out of a non-toxic gel. There is so much to love about these products!

It feels satisfying to support such an endeavor to keep lunch boxes clean, safe and out of the garbage pile.
