Our Story: Launching Lunch!
We know how packing lunch day in and out can become a dreaded chore. So a few years back we set out to create an innovative solution for making lunch packing actually enjoyable – for our kids and for ourselves.
We craved something that was all in one, but had separate compartments to keep foods neat and fresh. It needed to be easy to open and close, especially for little fingers. We wanted it to be durable enough to last for years to come, but flexible enough to stay fresh and current. And last but not least, it had to be easy to clean – making it dishwasher safe was a must. Meet PlanetBox – where packing lunch doesn’t need to be rocket science!
We made PlanetBox out of non-toxic materials because we wanted a truly safe choice for our family and yours. Stainless steel works for foods – it’s safe, non-toxic, non-leaching, recyclable, and doesn’t pick up yucky food odors or stains like plastic does. And using a reusable lunchbox means creating a lot less trash – which lets us sleep easier knowing we are doing our part to help the planet for future generations.
A funny thing happens when you design a good lunchbox – it actually does some of the thinking for you and helps you create better, healthier lunches! Let your PlanetBox serve as a guide for packing a healthy lunch. Did you forget to include some veggies? The empty compartment will remind you. Concerned about overeating at lunch? Rest assured that won’t happen because PlanetBox’s compartments were designed to hold sensible portions. And now your morning routine just got a little easier – who doesn’t need that!?
