ECOlunchbox Review & Giveaway

 I am excited to be working with ECOlunchbox again and this time I have the pleasure of introducing you to some of the ECOlunchbox stainless steel line of products! {You can read my previous post about ECOlunchbox and their Furoshiki ECOsnacksack HERE} ECOlunchbox was created when founder, Sandra was at a loss for a lunchtime alternative to plastic/vinyl lunchboxes, plastic baggies and awkward, hard to open, plastic containers. So, Sandra worked to develop a lunch kit that was user friendly, healthier for people and the planet too! At ECOlunchbox, you won't find any plastics, disposables, vinyl, PVC, BPA or lead. There's nothing icky that can leach into your food here! All you'll need is a little mealtime creativity and you're set to make a healthy and safe lunch (or breakfast or dinner)!

ECOlunchbox has a wonderful line of products, including stainless steel bento boxes, artisan lunch bags and napkins. Stainless steel lunch items are a wonderful alternative to plastics at mealtime. Plastic is readily available, very versatile and pretty convenient. It sounds good, but there are definitely some growing concerns about how plastics can affect our food and the people who are eating that food. I try very, very hard to avoid as many plastics as I can. I am very careful when it comes to serving, storing and preparing little man's food. The only plastics that I have left in our kitchen are some plastic food storage containers that I haven't been able to switch out for glass or stainless steel yet. I try to swap out a few items at a time (as I can afford it) and my goal is to have a plastic and disposable free kitchen. Every small step counts!

I was thrilled when ECOlunchbox sent little man their ECOlunchtray and ECOdipper to review! They are just his size and a perfect for mealtimes and snacks! The ECOlunchtray is designed to resist stains, odors and residues. It is 100% high-quality, food-safe stainless steel that will not leach anything into your food. The ECOlunchtray has three separate compartments that hold one main and two side dishes. I love that the two side dish compartments are different sizes - the smaller one is perfect for dipping sauces or a little dessert/treat! There is no need to worry about little ones being a bit rough on the tray either, because it is unbreakable! Another bonus is that it is dishwasher safe! A fun, safe meal for your little one, plus easy clean up...sounds perfect!

The ECOdipper is great to have at the table or to take with you when you are out and about running errands, on a picnic or at the park. It is the perfect size to take along in your purse or diaper bag! The ECOdipper can hold about 1/2 cup of dry or wet foods. It is perfect for yogurt, applesauce, cut fruit, nuts, pretzels, cracker, berries...the list goes on! Just keep in mind, that if you are packing something with a bit more liquid in it, the lid is pressure fitted, but not 100% leak-proof, since there is no plastic  used.

I really love the ECOlunchtray and the ECOdipper! They were perfect for every meal and they wiped clean so easily! Little man really had fun using them too. I think that he liked the dividers for the different food compartments and the tray and dipper were sized just right for him to pick up food with his fingers or use his fork to grab it. He really, really loved dipping his foods! Meal time was definitely fun when we were using these! I also liked that since they are stainless steel, they are super light! So, when little man was done eating, he could pick up his tray and hand it to me to help me clear the table. I didn't worry, since the they are unbreakable, and little man is helping me clear the table! 

I definitely think that both the ECOlunchtray and the ECOdipper are wonderful to use. I love knowing that they are free of any harmful chemicals - making them better for little man and the planet at the same time! I highly recommend both of these items if you are looking to get away from plastics for your home and for your little ones lunch!
