10 practical tools for a zero-waste lunchbox



10 practical tools zero waste lunch bags

It's well known that lunch boxes are often full of single-use packaging products!

Oh yes ?

Good yes ! We only have to think of Tetra Pack juice boxes, Zip Lock style resealable plastic bags, granola bar packaging on the market... And... All of this has a cost.

An obvious cost for your wallet which also translates into a cost for society (yes, the collection of garbage and recycling is expensive just like sorting or landfill centers) and of course a cost for the environment .

We haven't finished paying for all that...

I don't dwell on the subject from noon to 2 p.m. I think you know what I'm talking about. And as long as we talk indefinitely about the consequences of such choices, I prefer to talk about concrete solutions for ecological lunch boxes. Because there are several trails and you have plenty to choose from!

Okay, no surprises here.

The first thing to do is to refuse to consume anything that is single-use, including ready-made lunches from the grocery store. With this in mind, we are rethinking our lunches.

Here are some products that can help you get there! It's up to everyone to see what suits them and fits easily into your lifestyle.

In addition to the lunch box itself, here is what we suggest you include in it:

Insulating container

I don't know about you, but cold meals all the time are no win! There's nothing better than being able to eat hot meals that stayed hot! Double-walled insulated containers represent an investment that will pay off and will allow you to use leftover food from the day before!


Juice box

Ha the ease of small single-use juice boxes has invaded schools and workplaces in record time! However, there are some great, easy-to-use solutions. Drink in a box offers a super durable, resistant product and it is even possible to obtain replacement parts !

Sandwich or snack bags

Small bags that replace the famous single-use resealable plastic bags exist and are easy to maintain. Those presented here are doubly ecological!

They are made here, from fabric made from recycled plastic bottles. Wash and dry in record time!

Here we are talking about the base, the base! Bring utensils with you and avoid single-use utensils at all times! Here is a versatile object that is good for life! It's so practical with these two integrated utensils : spoon and fork, it's often just what we need!

Cooling block

For long days and hot days, it is essential to keep our lunch cool! Here is a stainless steel cooling pack appreciated for its efficiency and the format it presents: it is small and does not take up half the lunch box!

Lunch box placemats allow you to sit down to eat even in places that are a little less clean than we would like!

These lunch box placemats have a pocket in which you can slip your utensils and they are very easily washable!

They are also designed in a fabric made from recycled plastic bottles, right here!

Reusable bottle

They say you should drink 2 liters of water a day! Nothing less.

Imagine if everyone consumed this water in disposable plastic bottles every day! The solution is obviously the reusable bottle.

What we love about this reusable bottle is that it is retractable : we can fold it so that it only takes up 5 cm in our bag or lunch box.

Reusable food packaging

The ease of use of plastic food wrap has meant that it has taken over the market. However, there are ecological and easy-to-use solutions.

Beeswax or vegan food wraps really serve the same function. They allow you to wrap foods such as sandwiches, cheeses or fauxmages... Very easy to maintain: a little soap, cold water and a wipe of rags!

Stainless steel container

We're not going to hide it from you, we don't really like our food being in contact with plastic.

Why, because it is not a stable material and there can be exchanges of particles thus contaminating our food. So we found a great solution: stainless steel containers !

Perhaps you are thinking that an ecological lunch box requires a big investment? You are right ! But you only buy once and we don't have to change everything at once.

We believe that one step at a time is the key to success and that every action counts. It’s up to you which one you want to start with!

Ecologically yours,
