CLOSED Eco-friendly lunch box: Easy Lunch Boxes Review and Giveaway ENDS 6/17/10

Pin It Now!
THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED WINNER WILL BE POSTED FRIDAY JUNE 18th after 10PM




We are on the search for the perfect eco friendly lunch system. We started our search with Easy Lunch Boxes. I have to tell you I love this system, my husband takes a lunch to work everyday and he actually had a lunch box that was similar and I had found a divided container with a lid, but the problem the 2 did not go together. My hubby usually takes leftovers and he hates for his food to touch so I was on the hunt for the perfect solution. But I kept coming up empty handed. I was beginning to think I was not ever going to find what I was looking for. Then I found it while searching the web one night. Easy Lunch Boxes.
   This is exactly what I was looking for it had it all. the insulated lunch bag, divided containers with lids and still room for a drink, napkin and silverware and maybe a snack or two.  I was so excited when Easy Lunch Boxes agreed to work with my blog and sent me a lunch system to review, they are also offering one of my readers an Easy Lunch Box of their choice color so stay tuned to the end of this review for details on how you can get your very own.


    My husband  was skeptical to say the least but after using the Easy Lunch Boxes System for almost 2 weeks he is a believer, as am I. My favorite part aside from being eco friendly and convenient is that the containers are all dishwasher and microwave safe and are free from all the bad stuff related to plastic containers like BPA, phthalates, lead, vinyl, or PVC. I really do love Easy Lunch Boxes. I will be soon ordering some for the whole family. The cool thing is there are enough colors for all of us to get a color of our own.

  We also used the lunch system on a recent trip to the zoo and I was pleasantly surprised to realize I could stack 2 of the sealed containers one on top of the other and they both fit into the lunch bag. This sealed the deal, not only was it eco-friendly but also took up less space than our previously used lunch storage as I could combine 2 lunches into one bag. This is helpful when I get stuck lugging all the gear through the zoo as they are "too tired". We were given the Aqua lunch bag and a set of 4 containers for our review. The lunch bag retails for $7.95 and a set of containers for $13.95. I feel this is very reasonable and is made of quality materials I paid over $20 for my husbands previous lunch box, no containers and it was not made nearly as nice and was just plain black. I love the color choices that Easy Lunch Boxes offers in both the lunch bag and the fun assorted colors of their containers. I am a color person, color brightens the world so why not have fun with color when you can.

Here is some info on the company and Easy Lunch Boxes...
Mornings spent in chaos making breakfast, beds, & lunch boxes?


The EasyLunchbox system makes it simple to organize, and quickly pack healthy lunches without wasting money, time, paper or plastic.



Born out of my response to unhealthy school lunch programs, EasyLunchboxes.com started from the desire to send my 3 kids to school with a nutritious meal, using little to no wasteful packaging. But the EasyLunchbox System is not just for kids. Adult size meals fit perfectly too.





EasyLunchboxes.com was launched in December, 2009 and is quickly becoming the new favorite among affordable and green lunch box solutions!

Named a 'top 5 Eco-Friendly Mommy Must Have" by Parents Ask, the EasyLunchbox System has been rated TOP CHOICE by many independent reviewers. Read their reviews HERE .





I was like other frustrated moms - I didn't like throwing together lunches during the morning rush. So much time was wasted sorting through a cabinet of mismatched food containers while trying to pack 15-25 well-balanced lunches per week. I struggled to find something that would help me pack lunches fast, without resorting to the ‘convenience’ of expensive, pre-packaged ‘fast-food.’ Most importantly, I wanted something attractive, eco-friendly, and made of food-safe materials that I didn’t have to wash by hand.



My clever solution to the lunch-packing chore is the simple two piece EasyLunchbox container : The bottom has three compartments to hold an entree or sandwich and two side dishes. The fitted lid (which comes in 4 colors) covers all three compartments at once. No more squished sandwiches, mismatched plastic container pieces to keep track of (matching up all those bottoms and lids was the thing that drove me nuts!) or wasteful baggies. Fits perfectly inside the roomy EasyLunchbox custom carrying bag. And there is still plenty of room to throw in an extra snack or two, whole fruit, perhaps a thermos of soup, drink and ice block. Flexibility is key, and since so many different things can fit, no matter what menu you choose to include, it packs easily and quickly. It's amazing how much faster, greener, & easier lunch box packing is with the EasyLunchbox system.





Supporting the waste-free lunch movement, EasyLunchboxes.com offers a reusable, superior solution at a much lower price than other companies.

Great for large families and those on a limited budget.

FDA approved. No BPA, phthalates, lead, vinyl, or PVC. Safe for dishwasher and microwave.



The simple chic design and bright colors of our Cooler Bags can even be personalized!

We have included a sturdy grommet in the carrying handle so you can easily attach a pretty key ring, dietary restrictions warning tag, or your choice of any type of handcrafted or store bought “flair.” Examples HERE

Our Cooler Bags are made of the highest quality 300D Polyester for premium durability and toughness. Vinyl free (PVC free) & lead free, with an FDA compliant PEVA lining.
