With Care

I always tell people that PlanetBox lunch boxes are an initial investment, but so worth the money. Here's why:

  • They are so easy to clean! - This has to be a priority when you have a kid...or 3 ;) PlanetBox lunch boxes are dishwasher safe, but we just wipe and rinse it with warm soapy water after school and let it dry in the rack (unless it was a particularly messy meal)
  • They're perfect for litter-less lunches - Many schools now request this
  • They last for years - Their high quality stainless steal is actually warranted for 5 years!
  • They save so much frustration - Avoid the daily chaotic search through dozens of containers and lids. Simplicity makes life much easier, especially as a parent.
  • They are safe - non-toxic, non-leaching, safe from BPA, phthalates, and lead
  • They are customizable - This matters less to me, but Lucy had a blast picking out her magnets and bag combo and was so excited to see her choices when they arrived. When her brother saw it he announced that he wanted a pink bag too. After almost 2 years of daily use, his Rover lunch box is still in great shape, but his bag has taken a beating (to be expected with a 4-6 year old who drags it through the halls at school), so I think we will replace it. If pink is what he wants, pink is what he'll get.
