Bento Boxes and Lunch Totes


'Bento' Boxes are named after the Japanese word for an individual takeout meal or a home-packed lunch, and the containers they're put in, which frequently have compartments to keep the various side-dishes separated. An article on the features of the particular type we carry is reproduced below. In addition, we carry various other containers for carrying lunches, snacks or beverages to school, work, or outings, many of which incorporate insulating and/or cooling elements.



Waste Less - Spend Less - Eat Well


Bento Lunches

Bento Laptop Lunches


Bento Laptop Lunches are Eco-Friendly! Their sustainable lunch containers -- which come with a book of healthy lunch ideas and lunchmaking recipes -- are reusable, recyclable, and dishwasher safe. Their lunchboxes, which were featured in both Parents and O Magazine, do not contain phthalates, bisphenol A (BPA), or lead. Pack your wet foods in the lidded containers. The open containers are designed to accommodate dry foods such as sliced apple, cucumber, carrot and celery sticks, crackers, and pretzels - things that do not contain liquid.
