From lunch boxes to kitchen storage containers, plastic is everywhere in our daily lifestyle and we don’t always realize how some of the chemicals contained in plastic can silently impact our family’s health or the environment. Reducing the use of plastic implies swapping progressively these materials for those that have a greater impact. The good news is that a lot of companies are launching new products every year with the planet, kids, and busy moms in mind.
What’s new on the market? Here is a selection of stylish and eco-friendly lunch accessories for kids that really caught our eye recently.
Colorful Food Storage
Glassware is back in our kitchen thanks to the joyful Wean Green collection. The colorful lids make it so easier and so much fun to organize your freezer. These tempered glass food containers are sturdy enough for the kids to even take them to school when a microwave is available. Totally kid-approved! Use code Teuko20 to get 20% off their website.
If you like multi-function containers, check out the latest collection of Lille Home Stainless Steel Food Containers. These bento lunch boxes have a transparent lid that makes it easy to store and organize your leftovers. These colorful containers with an anti-slip exterior make them also great for the kids’ lunch at school.
If you don’t feel like doing without storage bags yet, consider reusable and long-lasting silicone products. Stasher bags and bowls are great to save and freeze any leftover food, including broth! Made of pure platinum food-grade silicone, these multitasking bags are safe to cook in, from the microwave to the oven. They’re also great for sous vide.

Lille Home has a wide collection of stainless steel bento lunch containers. Their colorful insulated containers are a hit in our house. Lille Home also offers 18oz stainless steel 3-compartment Bento lunch boxes fun and easy to open for little ones.
Reusable Lunch Accessories
An easy step to take in order to reduce plastic use is to invest in reusable cutlery. You can get many lovely ones for kids. We like the case that comes with the cute and modern design from monbento cutlery set. Designed in France, monbento is available worldwide.
They are not new, but their fun snack containers are by far one of our kids’ favorite so far. We use the Stackable Duo by The Pinwheelers for small snacks or condiments. The cute and insulated storage bag makes it so easier to keep any snack safe on the go.
Swap single-use plastic for reusable wraps and minimize waste one sandwich at a time. We love the cute Bee’s Wrap sandwich wraps with a bee button and string to wrap your lunch or seconds. Your kids not only get a wrap but a placemat to eat their sandwich for a crumb-free cleanup.
How do you like these eco-friendly options? Are you ready for some swaps in your kitchen? This said, being eco-friendly doesn’t mean that you have to ditch all the plastic in your house right away. Use whatever plastic container you have as long as it’s in a good condition. Just keep in mind to not poor hot food or reheat your leftovers in a plastic container. This will always be the better option for the Planet!
