Laptop Lunch Systems: Big Demand for BPA-Free Lunchboxes and Other Green Back-to-School Supplies
With back-to-school season in full gear and given all the information that has come out about lunch boxes containing lead, phylates, bisphenol and other chemicals that are believed to be either carcinogens or hormone disrupters, parents are becoming more discerning about the lunch boxes they are buying this year and have a greater interest than ever before in eco-friendly school supplies. For many, no longer is it a simple matter of letting their kids choose that lunchbox with his or her favorite character. According to Laura Meyer, Founder & CEO of The Ultimate Green Store (www.theultimategreenstore.com) and herself a mother of three school-age children, there is a huge focus on how the lunch boxes are made and in packing lunches in a manner that produces less waste. The Ultimate Green Store is a one-stop online green store that sells hundreds of eco-friendly products in many high demand categories including babies and kids products. Meyer says that The Ultimate Green Store is getting numerous inquiries from parents who are asking a lot of good questions about these products from an environmental and health perspective. “
The huge hit of the season and best-selling product at the store this month is the Obentec Laptop Lunch System,” according to Meyer. Inspired by the Japanese bento box, Laptop Lunch Boxes feature a hinged outer container, four inner food containers, a dip container and a set of utensils. The boxes come in an assortment of fun colors and designs and kids love the compartments because they fit together like a puzzle. The containers are reusable, recyclable and dishwasher safe, free of any materials that are suspected carcinogens or hormone disrupters, and make it easy for families to use less disposable packaging. If you buy the Laptop Lunch System, you will also get an insulated carrying case that resembles a laptop bag, an ID tag, water bottle and mesh pocket for an ice pack. An added bonus: The lunch boxes even come with a guide for making healthy lunches that kids love including creative tips for dealing with picky eaters.
As far as water bottles go, with the recent news about the Nalgene recall of their water bottles containing bisphenol A, more parents are turning to stainless steel water bottles for their kids such as the ones made by Kleen Kanteen which are made from 100% recyclable high-quality food-grade stainless steel which is non-leaching.
With respect to other products, Meyer says that with more and more green products hitting the market all the time, greening kids back to school supplies is easier now than ever. In addition to the products mentioned above, the store sells tree-free paper made from agricultural waste and sugar cane, pencils made from recycled newspaper, paper and binders made from recycled post-consumer content, eco-friendly bags and other eco-friendly school supplies.
Meyer also says eco-conscious parents can help to breed eco-conscious kids and that kids love learning about how the products are made. “When kids learn that they are using pencils made out of recycled newspapers and are told that for every 2 ½ foot stack of newspapers that gets recycled, a 20 ft. pine tree can be saved, they feel like they are doing something to make a difference. They know that going green is cool and they feel empowered!”
