I hope y’all are ready for more fabulous back-to-school products, I know I am!image

 

If you asked your child what his or her favorite part of their school day is chances are lunch is going to be on high on the list (for mine I think it’s #1).  If your kiddos are like mine then they would probably rather eat PB&J every day than eat school lunch and with so many children and parents opting for bagged lunches it’s only fitting that they have the right lunchbox/bag!  I found a company that makes “products today for a sustainable tomorrow” and I can’t wait to introduce them to you—Lunchopolis!

 

If the name alone isn’t enough to make you smile, you have to admit—it is catchy, then their commitment to “litter free lunch” will definitely do it!  With 3.5 billions pounds of lunch box garbage generated each year from juice boxes, water bottles, aluminum foil and plastic bags, it’s nice to know that the litter free Lunchopolis from New Wave Solutions solves the problem! 

Lunchopolis

  • BPA Free

  • CPSIA Tested

  • Microwave Safe

  • Dishwasher Safe

  • Garbage Free

  •  

Each Lunchopolis comes with:

  • 4 Reusable Containers: perfect for sandwiches and snacks

  • 15.9 oz reusable bottle (Fill with ice to keep food cold)

  • Insulated outer shell

  •  

Lunchopolis:

  • Saves you money by not having to purchase disposable bags, aluminum foil, and other disposable containers.

  • Designed with everything parents need to pack a healthy, planet friendly lunch.

 

Just the Facts!

 

reduce waste

every kid produces an estimate of 67 pounds of lunchbox garbage per year. using lunchopolis along with a washable cloth napkin and re-usable utensil eliminates 100% of that garbage.

 

variety and nutrition

lunchopolis containers are designed to hold a larger variety of food than a plastic bag or tin foil. lunchopolis makes it just as easy to pack salads, leftovers or sushi as a traditional sandwich.

 

no need for a cold pack

our drinking bottle was engineered with a mouth wide enough to hold ice cubes. when you fill the bottle with ice and your favorite drink, the bottle doubles as a cold pack. it will also dilute juice to ensure that your kids don’t get too much sugar in their drink.

 

juiceboxes

packing one 8 ounce juice box in your child’s lunch every school day will cost approximately $224 a year. refilling your lunchopolis drinking bottle every school day from a 128 ounce bottle would cost approximately $144 a year. that’s a savings of $80.

 

bulk buying

lunchopolis encourages cost-saving bulk buying of your favorite snacks and drinks. for example, an individual serving of organic yogurt costs approximately $1.50. a 32 ounce container of the same yogurt costs approximately $3 and you get up to 5 servings to fill your lunchopolis container.

plastic bags

using one plastic sandwich bag per school day will cost approximately $10 a year. with lunchopolis, you never need to use plastic bags.

spacer

aluminum foil

using 1.5 square foot of aluminum foil per school day will cost approximately $12 a year. with Lunchopolis, you never need to use tin foil.

We received a lunch bag from Lunchopolis to review recently and I have to say, it has very quickly become my favorite Lunch bag--ever!  My oldest daughter Taylor is in middle school this year and has committed herself to a more healthy diet, with her old lunch bag it was rather difficult for her to bring the foods that she wanted to eat for lunch because it just wasn’t easy or practical, with L

Lunchopolis it’s super simple for Taylor to bring anything from a salad to her favorite chicken wraps!  I love the Lunchopolis lunch box because it saves lunch box garbage, it allows me to pack healthy, planet-friendly lunches for my children and it saves me money—it doesn’t get better than that!  Taylor loves her Lunchopolis lunch box because it allows her to pack what she wants for lunch, which is a big thing for her right now and she also loves how adorable the design on her lunch box is! 

 

If you’re in the market for an eco-friendly lunch box for your kiddos I highly suggest Lunchopolis!
