WHAT DOES IT REPLACE? Petroleum-based plastic bags, plastic wrap, and hard plastic containers (including take out containers, though you get an A+ for reuse). And while aluminum foil is recyclable (if you clean it) and you can buy 100% recycled aluminum (WAY BETTER BC IT USES FEWER RESOURCES TO MANUFACTURE), it's not reusable like these. Glass containers are heavy and break, but we all agree are better than petroleum products.

CERTIFICATIONS U-Konserve is a Certified B Corp.
ABOUT THE COMPANY Long before zero-waste living was making headlines, U-Konserve was creating products to help people live azero-waste lifestyle. The company was founded by two friends who believed that small changes can have a huge impact on the global movement to protect our planet. After the birth of her daughter, Chance Claxton became increasingly concerned about the environment and wanted to make it easy for parents to reduce the plastic baggies, juice boxes and packaged foods piling up in landfills. In 2008 the founders created the first zero-waste lunch kit for elementary schools, and the new venture was born.
The innovative lunch kits spurred an entirely new lifestyle for thousands of families looking to tread lightly on the planet. The reusable concept caught on, and more products were developed. What started as a resource for school children quickly became a full line of zero-waste food-storage essentials for the whole family at home and on the go.
After more than a decade of growth and transition, the same goals that helped launch their message of reuse still guide the company today. As a Certified B-Corporation, the company is using business for good by creating a positive impact for employees, communities and the environment. The initial mission to protect the planet has grown into a lifestyle of reusing more, wasting less, and raising awareness about the exciting and growing movement to reduce single-use plastic.
We’ve been squishing or trimming our sandwiches to fit our smaller Lunch Bot boxes for quite some time. This is the perfect size for our homemade bread or longer sour dough. My daughter was happy to easily fit her big sandwich in there this morning. Lid seems super secure. No more rubber bands needed.
Yay! We're so glad you like it. It's good for pizza slices, too. We love that it's a silicone lid, not plastic, and therefore can go in the dish washer. But mostly we just give it a rinse because it's a lid! These containers are also oven safe if you have a little something to heat up. Thanks so much for writing in.

Peek a boo lunch and other food storage
I really LOVE this and the whole set because it's easy to use and easy to clean stainless steel with a see-through silicone lid, so I can see what's inside at a glance. I use the rectangular shaped one for lunch and it fits a sandwich and fruit or chips perfectly. And of course it's so much better than plastic because it doesn't stain or put any plastic in my food.
Thank you for taking the time to write this totally spot on review. We love it for all the reasons you mentioned, and because you can put the container in the oven and/or use it to buy bulk foods at the grocery store (tare weight on back) or take it in your bag when you go out to eat for your left-overs. :)
