Cleaner Greener Schools

To reduce the waste of throw-away packaging and help stop litter in our water ways and polluting the environment, Biome has teamed up with 'Cleaner Greener Schools' to offer you affordable ways to pack waste-free lunches, save money, and keep Australia beautiful!

The Cleaner Greener Schools code can be used on our entire Lunch Box range which you'll find when you hover over the Reusable & Safe section on the menu bar above. Scroll down to Lunch Boxes which will show each brand of Lunch Box in our range. You can also search Lunch Boxes By Use and By Material. Read on for more information on how to eliminate waste when packing school lunches.

Did you know a school child with a disposable lunch generates 30kg of waste per year?

Are you a lunchbox legend?

Australia's best range of lunch boxes at Biome

Safe & non toxic

Pack a safe kids lunch box.  Every lunch box and food container at Biome is:

  • Great quality and from a trusted manufacturer
  • Made from BPA free plastic, stainless steel or glass (for older children our tempered glass containers work very well)
  • Free from Bisphenol A (BPA), Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC), Lead, and Phthalates.

Many lunch boxes, plastic containers and plastic wraps contain BPA, PVC, lead and phthalates. One of the nasties to avoid when choosing a kids lunch box is PVC. Often on a soft shiny plastic lunch box there is no label to tell you what it is, but it is more than likely PVC.

What fits in what?
