Save Green When You Go Green with These Lunch Kits

Are you tired of the waste that goes into packing your child’s lunch? Do you want to cut down on the amount of paper lunch bags, zippered plastic pouches and plastic utensils you buy?  When you go green and use reusable lunch bags and containers, you will help the Earth and save green too! Let me share some of my favorite eco-friendly lunchbox kits for kids with you.


One that has stayed on the top of my list for years, is the PlanetBox Lunchbox kits. They have three different lunchbox kits to choose from. They are made with safe, non-toxic, non-leaching stainless steel that is warrantied for 5 years. PlanetBox kits are customizable, so you can buy different magnet sets to dress them up, and change the design every year if you wish. Easy clean up because they can go right into your dishwasher. Choose the kit that is the right size for your child and get a free magnet set with a lunchbox purchase.
