PlanetBox will serve as your guide for what and how much to pack. We’ve done the thinking for you. And now your morning routine just got a whole lot easier.
We take "non-toxic, non-leaching, safe from BPA, phthalates, and lead" very seriously – in fact, it’s why we designed PlanetBox! We don’t think you will find safer products on the market than ours.
Why should you pay this much for a lunchbox? Because it’s cheaper to buy food in bulk and pack your own meal. Because your health is worth it. And because it’s an investment your family will use every single day for many years to come – over its lifetime, it will pay off in spades.
When something actually works well, it makes all the difference. We spent years studying and living how people use lunchboxes. We thoroughly thought through all the details, so you and your kids get the joy and ease of using a superbly designed product.
Think packing lunch is a dreaded chore? Our innovative lunchboxes actually make packing lunch fun and enjoyable – for your kids and yourself!
PlanetBox lunches create a whole lot less trash, which should help you sleep better knowing you’re doing your part to help the planet for future generations.
Built to Last
This isn’t your childhood flimsy tin lunchbox. Our high quality stainless steel is warrantied for 5 years, and has been known to survive getting thrown off the school bus (not that we recommend that).
Forget to pack some veggies? The empty compartment will remind you. Concerned about overeating? That won’t happen - PlanetBox is designed to hold sensible portions. So eat a rainbow of foods, and enjoy.
Dishwasher safe? Heck yeah. Peanut butter left for a week? No problem – our stainless steel doesn’t retain yucky food odors or stains like those unfortunate plastic containers do.
Whether you’re a rock star, a paleontologist, or a flower child, we’ve got a magnet set for you. And when you decide to become an astronaut or fairy lover next year, just change your magnets and you’ve got a fresh new lunchbox to suit your style.
"Makes my mornings easier" "Like most moms, making lunches becomes a dreaded task, but I actually enjoy filling up the compartments and I know when they are all full their lunch is complete! And I can see how much they have and make sure they have their fruits/veggies too. Having a PlanetBox makes MY morning much easier!" - Cheryl S., Larkspur, CA
"Stylish, extremely practical" "We had a competitor version last year that just doesn’t even come close to your boxes – and I confess I bought them because they were less expensive – but in the end, they cost us much more. The competitor’s broke, leaked, and we ended up throwing them. The kids have a variety of foods in their lunches, the lunches do not leak, my 5th grade son and 8th grade daughter both think their styles are “cool” (how many products can boast that!) So – kudos to you and your design!" -Brittany S., Novato, CA
"Got to get that" "I bought PlanetBoxes from you just before school started, for my boys, ages 11 and 6. They started at a new school and on day 1, all the kids in their respective classes were ooh-ing and aaah-ing over their PlanetBoxes. Last week, two teachers from another grade came by my older son’s lunch table to check out his Planet Box, because she’d heard about it. She was telling the other teacher she’s “got to get that” for her kids. Thanks for bringing my kids instant celebrity at their new school!" - Jackie J., Decatur, GA
"My kids find it exciting, like a puzzle" "We are really loving your PlanetBoxes!! The best part about them, from a mom’s perspective, is that my kids find it exciting, like a puzzle, to fill up all the compartments, so they do it themselves! I simply put out a couple things from every food group and let them choose. They’re only 4 and 6 years old, and because of the perfect compartments, they are learning about food groups. Thank you for developing such a wonderful, waste-free, nutrition-minded product. The world is a better place because of you! You’re making moms’ jobs easier. Thank you. : )" - Stacey W., Austin, TX
"I lost twenty pounds and am now living a healthier and happier life" "My name is Daisy and I am sixteen years old. I’ve always loved playing sports, but because of my genetics I’ve always been on the heavy side. One of my mother’s main concerns was my healthy eating habits, so she and I started this plan to make my lunches for school. We struggled to work out an efficient system. One day, my mom found PlanetBox online and read all about it. I loved it from the first time I used it. The convenience of the PlanetBox enabled me and my mom to continue our routine. I lost twenty pounds and am now living a healthier and happier life. PlanetBox helped me reach this success because the lunch boxes are cute, easy to clean and great for proportions. I am very grateful for the PlanetBox because it helped make a healthier me." - Daisy R., Farragut, TN
"I know he won’t be wasting his time opening baggies" "We received our new PlanetBox a couple of days ago. My boys are thrilled! Thank you for helping make lunch time an adventure instead of a struggle. My younger son is entering first grade this year. I was very concerned about lunch time and the array of lunches that might come home untouched. The 40-minute combined lunch recess doesn’t afford young ones the liberty to get settled and eat at a slower pace. My older son came home cranky and famished daily from first grade Booo! I am no longer as concerned about my younger son eating his lunch. I know he won’t be wasting his time opening baggies, containers or raising his hand for help from one of 3 lunch supervisors. So, thank you!" - Ben F., Boston, MA
"Your box makes me look good!" "I just wanted to send you a quick note letting you know how much we LOVE the PlanetBox. My son loved it the day he received his box (in 1st grade). He’s starting 4th grade in a few weeks and his Planet Box is still going strong. This thing has been dropped, kicked, thrown, washed a bazillion times in the dishwasher and, most importantly, used every day of the school year. There’s not a spot of rust or wear on the box itself. Without reservation I can say that the PlanetBox has paid for itself. I save on sandwich bags, the cost of washing individual containers and buying new lunchboxes every year. Moreover, the benefits of feeding my son super healthy lunches is priceless. The box is one of those things that are a constant positive. So, thank you for the PlanetBox!" - Suzzanne M., Seattle, WA
"Made me more creative and thoughtful" "Packing a kid’s lunch is so much easier with your lunchbox. THANK YOU! Before I got a PlanetBox, I over packed, under packed, it was madness! Now I fill each compartment and ta-da! I love the inspirations you post (via pictures). It’s made me more creative and thoughtful when packing lunch, too." - Katie R., Springfield, IL
"REMINDS me to pack a veggie" "I got a PlanetBox for my daughter. It’s like a stainless steel bento box and is just an amazing lunchbox in its own right, but what I really like about it in terms of healthy foods is that somehow with those compartments, it REMINDS me to pack a veggie component – like one of those compartments is supposed to be for veggies, so I’d better come up with some veggies." - Jane W., North Kansas City, MO
"Teacher announced that it was the best lunchbox" "I purchased a planet box for my 3 year old because she just started preschool. After the first day her teacher announced that it was the best lunchbox and asked all about it. We pack most of it at night, and can easily see what is missing and add the last minute additions in the morning. Super easy. And, perhaps most importantly, it is easy to clean!"
"I actually ENJOY putting together the combinations of healthy foods"
"I don’t know exactly how long we’ve been using the PlanetBox kits now but I
shudder to recall life before we found your wonderful product. It is not an
understatement to say that I HATED packing lunches, and when my husband and I
married to form a family with FOUR grade-school kids, it was so daunting I
couldn’t cope some days. The PlanetBox kit has been so wonderful for us."
"And as far as the process of packing the lunch goes, seriously, it’s no joke, I actually ENJOY putting together the combinations of healthy food in the compartments. I’m loving the creativity of solving the space / shape puzzle each time. WE LOVE PLANETBOX!!!!!!!!! It cost a small fortune to import the four kits to Canada, but sometimes it’s worth it, and this is one of those times. Best of everything to you. Bless you for having the wherewithal to dream up, manufacture and market this product." - Jen J., Los Angeles, CA
