    PackIt Bento

    Packing a healthy, zero waste lunch for school or work can be a struggle, and then there’s the challenge of keeping it cool and fresh for several hours. For instance: ice packs. They’re necessary to keep our food fresh and safe, but how safe are the ice packs? What happens if they leak? How toxic are they? Are they safe to have around food? But with the PackIt Bento Box set, you no longer need to worry.

    How to make an Ice Pack Free Lunch with PackIt Bento

    1. The day before, put the outer sleeve into the freezer

    The PackIt Bento set comes with an outer carry sleeve and an inner, BPA and PVC free bento style lunchbox.

    The outer sleeve has walls with built-in eco-gel, which freezes and keeps lunches fresh all day long.

    It keeps contents cold for up to 10 hours, and the insulation traps the cool air around the food.

    No more ice packs to keep track of, and no more toxic gel near your food.

    2. Choose a healthy lunch and pop it into the inner PackIt Bento Box

    The inner bento lunchbox is BPA-free and made with food-safe polypropylene.

    It has one main compartment and two snack compartments, so it’s great for portion control.

    When putting your lunch into the PackIt Bento box, keep in mind that it isn’t leak proof. The good thing is that the outer carry sleeve has its handle on the side, so the inner bento is carried horizontally.

    But for things like salad dressing and soup, it would be best to go with Kids Konserve or leak-proof Lunchbots.

    3. In the morning, put the Packit Bento into the frozen sleeve

    Once your outer sleeve is frozen, just pop your lunch into it and it’s ready to go!

    You can’t put sharp objects inside the sleeve, but there’s an exterior zip pocket for utensils.

    At the end of the day, just refreeze the PackIt bento sleeve and it’ll be set to use again.

    4. Take a school or work lunch with a difference!

    Not only is the PackIt Bento convenient and easy to use, it’s also helping to reduce single use plastic, and save resources.

    The gel liner saves water and resources that would have otherwise gone into making ice cubes or toxic ice packs.

    The eco-friendly, sleeve poly canvas contains no PVC, so no resources have gone into making toxic materials.

    Lastly, an investment in reusable lunchware and storage not only saves money, but waste from going to landfill.
