I received my The EasyLunchbox System in the mail the other day.
From the minute I opened the package I fell in love.
When I first saw this product online I was excited about the perfect eco-friendly way to pack lunches. I was looking for solutions for packing lunches for the Fall because my oldest will be starting school then. I came across The EasyLunchbox System and had to know what they were like. And even though I had some reservations about how good of a quality they would be, I was proven wrong time and time again.
When I opened the package I was expecting the 4 containers to be just like other brands you can find in the stores. These containers however have a much higher quality feel and I won’t need to worry about my little girl easily cracking the lids, which easily happens with store bought containers. Also when closing the containers you can feel a click and I know they are sealed. However they tell you not to use liquids or things like yogurt in them. There are tips on their website you can use for yogurt, to prevent leakage though.
I was worried about cleaning them too but found out how easy they were to wash tonight. They are dishwasher safe but since we don’t have a dishwasher I hand washed them. It was easy to get into the cracks to clean and dry.
I wasn’t sure if the lunch bag would be too big and bulky for my little one but it’s actually the perfect size for her. The bag even has a spot to be able to hang an identity tag off of.
My over all impression of The EasyLunchbox System is that they are awesome, high quality, kid friendly, eco-friendly, and just plain cute. My daughter can’t wait to start school to use them. She even asked “can I go to school now so I can use it?”

“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!
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.
