ECOlunchbox Review and Promo Code

I have to admit, I'm not the most "eco-conscious" person out there.  That's really a shame because, as a Christian, I believe that God gave us the earth and we are responsible for the stewardship of it.  But I admit that I'm often wasteful - using tons of disposable sandwich bags, etc.  Not only is that wasteful from an environmental point of view, but its pretty wasteful from a monetary point of view too!  Another thing that has recently become a concern to me is the repetitive use of plastice food storage containers.  Now, I'm not jumping on the "plastics are gonna kill ya" bandwagon.  Most plastic food storage containers, as I have discovered in my studies, are supposedly safe.  But some use polycarbonate (plastic #7), which has been shown to leach the harmful hormone-disrupting chemical Bisphenol A (BPA) into food items after repeated uses. The problem is, I don't have the time or energy to find out which of my plastics are safe and which aren't.  There's just too many of them and its too much to try to remember.  Some companies even make some items out of safe plastics & some out of plastic #7, so how do you know?!?  (To learn more about the possible danger of leaching plastics, check out this article by Popular Science.)
ECOlunchbox - Healthy for People & the Planet

That's why I was so intrigued when I received some products for review from ECOlunchboxes.  Their lunch boxes are made of BPA-free, high quality, lead-free, food-grade, stainless steel.  They are reuseable and dishwasher safe.  This means they are safe for you and your family, and less waste for the environment!  Plus, think of all the money you'll save when you stop buying all those sandwich bags!!!  :)

ECOlunchboxes was kind enough to send me 2 items for review...

The ECOlunchbox Oval
The Oval is 6.5" long x 5" wide x 2" tall.
It also contains a small cup with lid - perfect for sauces, dressings, fruit salads, etc.

My husband took the Oval to work and seems to really like it.  His only concern was that it might not be big enough to carry everything he wants to take for lunch.  But that's what's SO AWESOME about ECOlunchboxes!  They have LOTS of choices and LOTS of sizes!!!  (To see all of their options, click HERE.)

I also received...
The Large Lunchtray measures 8.25" x 9.75"
It will not retain stains, odors or residues.
Its non leaching, unbreakable, and dishwasher safe.

My daughter has been using this lunchtray since it arrived. She loves it and so do I! Its the perfect size for her, yet large enough for an adult to use too!  And it fits easily on the tray of her high chair! She can also easily turn it around - even on her high chair tray - which is AWESOME because she likes to turn her plate to get to her food. ;)  Its also SOOOOO easy to clean!!! Seriously!!! Its dishwasher safe, but its SO easy to handwash that I usually just do that! (And I HATE handwashing dishes, but this thing just cleans SO EASILY!!!)
