Do You Know?
Studies of bisphenol-S, the chemical compound sometimes used to replace bisphenol-A in "BPA-free" plastic products, found it is disruptive not only to the body's hormone system but to brain circuitry in developing animal embryos.
Known to mimic estrogen, BPA and BPS are not the only synthetic chemicals found in hard plastic and certain resins that do so. (Close relatives include Bisphenol B, C, E, F, G, M. P, PH, TMC, and Z.) In laboratory tests, 95 percent of hundreds of ordinary plastic products put through "real world" conditions, such as through a microwave or dishwasher, tested positive for leaching estrogenic chemicals. Since companies are under no obligation to tell consumers what chemicals are used in the manufacture of their product, many health experts say the best thing to do is avoid contact with household plastics altogether.
With the caveat that it is nearly impossible to not be exposed to plastic in the course of a day, here are two lists. The first contains a selective list of plastic items or products that contain plastic resins that experts say you should limit your exposure to or sanitize your hands after touching. The second list contains a selective list of safe alternatives
- hard plastic sports bottles
- plastic food storage containers
- food wrap
- hard and flexible packaging
- deli containers
- plastic bags
- baby bottle components (nipple, ring, liner, etc)
- plastic dinnerware and plates
- non-stick cookware
- plastic cleaning products
- thermal receipt paper
- canned food and drink
- stainless steel water bottles
- unbleached wax paper
- anything made from wool, cotton, hemp or plastic-free, biodegradable fibers
- plastic-free cleaning products, such as baking soda, vinegar, and essential oils
- stainless steel or cast iron cookware
Thanks again, love the new size little snack boxes too
Hi there since this is to be a present for a grandchild I can’t really say about how I find it personally, but I work in a preschool; and two boys have your lunchboxes and I thought out of all the different lunchboxes I see tamariki using yours looked strong and durable as well as environmentally friendly. I also get to see how easy it is for the tamariki to open and close their lunchboxes, to wrestle them in and out of their school bags, or the ones that are so big they don’t fit, whether they stay shut or the clasp loses its grip - nothing worse for a hungry child than to pull their lunchbox out and for it to drop its contents on the floor. And some lunchboxes are so big they take up so much space on the table, I think the double decker idea of yours makes it a very compact solution. And the clasps look easy but durable too. Great going! I hope my granddaughter likes hers!
I purchased this lunchbox for my self just over 2 years ago. I have been extremely happy with it. Two years on, it still looks brand new and I have had no problems with it.
I would agree with other comments that the lunch box does not fit an apple, pear or big banana without the fruit being cut. However I wouldn't want the lunchbox any bigger. So I don't mind having to cut the fruit if it is too big. I also wouldn't want to give up the compartments to make it big enough for the fruit.
I would highly recommend this product. I am an adult, it is my everyday work lunch box. I would definitely give this product 5 stars.
It’s SO good. Exactly what I was after. I’m now genuinely excited to pack my lunch each day. Hooray for less plastic in the house, too!
In our whānau we are trying hard to reduce plastic. While the kids previous lunch boxes were bento style and plastic, they lasted for ages. These just pushed things up a gear. They’re on the slightly smaller side (and these were the big ones) but we’re already seeing lunch creativity and less paper. The hardest part are the small snacks - but the smaller snack tin does the trick. A couple more could be useful. Also, the depth of the tins means a whole apple cannot fit, so slicing fruit is required. This comes with a little browning but so far, not a point of protest. Cleaning these is easy, and they seem tough for robust young boys. Will see how they withstand the ‘throw your bag around’ test over the next term and year. These are more expensive than our previous plastic bento boxes, but if these last longer than three years like the bentos then we will see the value.
