Why buy a reusable lunch bag?

Reusable lunch bags are an eco-friendly replacement for disposable plastic sandwich bags. These single-use plastic lunch bags have a negative impact on our environment.

Lunch bag or box guide

What to look for when buying a reusable lunch bag or lunch box to replace your plastic sandwich bags? Think about these points:

  • Insulated yes or no? Do you want your food container to keep your food cold or hot during the day? Then you need an insulated lunch cooler. These lunch containers have a special coating that keeps your food on the right temperature.
  • A bag or a box? Are you looking for a bag to store food containers in? Or do you want a box like a bento box to store your food in?
  • What size? The capacity of your new food container is important. Check the measurements of the lunch bag or box in the specifications and don’t rely 100% on the product images. Because these images tend to be misleading quite often.
  • Foldable or collapsible? Does your lunch container needs to be compact? Then get one that you can fold or collapse.
  • Easy to clean? A lunch bag or lunch box is used for food, so you want to keep it clean so you can eat safely out of your food container. Make sure you can clean the container easily. Most containers are dishwasher-safe, but we recommend to wash your lunch box or bag by hand if you can. Also check if the lunch tote or box is leak-free and air-tight.
  • What type of material? A lunch bag or box comes in all kind of materials. Such as high quality BPA-free plastics, canvas, leather and stainless steel. It is up to you what type of material you like. Keep in mind if you want to use the food container in the freezer or microwave that the material is able to do that.
