PlanetBox Stainless Steel Lunch Box

bagel_500w_rcSchool lunches are one of those places where it can be easy to “go green”.  Trade in plastic baggies for reusable cloth bags, pack cloth napkins, reusable utensils and bring along a stainless steel drink bottle.

There is one more step you can take to make your child’s lunch extra eco-friendly – choose a stainless steel lunch box.  Unlike many plastics, stainless steel is non-toxic and doesn’t leach, it can also be recycled.

The PlanetBox lunch box is the modern kid’s lunch box.  It has five individual compartments, one large enough for a sandwich and the others easily accommodate fruits and vegetables.  The smallest compartment is perfect for a small handful of your child’s favorite treat.  For messy foods like cottage cheese, you can put them in the Little or Big Dipper stainless steel container.  The lid is made with food-grade silicone rubber.

Sports Magnet Theme

Sports Magnet Theme

One of my favorite features, and the most unique, is the magnet themes you can attach to the front of the PlanetBox.  This allows the lunch box to grow with your child – no more replacing it each year to go with your child’s latest whims.  With seven themes, you’re bound to find one that your child will dig.  I’m sure you can expect PlanetBox to add more themes each year.

If you’re looking for more padding, you can pick up a carry bag.  Made with recycled polyester, it has a pouch on the front that is perfect for a cloth napkin and utensils.  It also has a drink holder, great for a stainless steel bottle.

It’s obvious that PlanetBox was designed by parents and tested by kids because nothing was left out!

WHERE TO BUY: You can buy PlanetBox lunch boxes online.

  131. I love the Rocket theme the best and my 5 year old son agrees with me!

  132. I must say, I’m somewhere between the Modern Art theme and the Rockets theme. Although, I would be completely content going zen and choosing no theme at all. ^_^

  133. Uh oh! My son loves the sports theme, under the sea and the rockets! I’m in trouble. 😉

  134. We love anything with a space like theme. The rocket ship is our favorite. 🙂

  135. I love these!!!

    For me: the retro kitty
    For my daughter: rainbow theme


  136. under the sea or rainbow my dtr would love both

  137. My son would love the rockets. I love the idea of a non-plastic box, and that the magnets are interchangeable. I also love the ice pack feature and the storage compartment for a watter bottle. I showed the pictures on their site to my son and he actually got excited about the way the food looked. It’s a struggle to get him to eat, but this might be an eye-appealling way to get him excited about it, as well as helping Mom and Dad prep his lunches for him.

  138. Maria Phipps says

    wow, I just found you and am already very impressed. I love the under the sea theme.. very cute.

  140. mariangela says

    definetely the rainbow 🙂

  141. Elizabeth Starr Lilly says

    Oh so hard to choose a favorite! I would be afraid to tell my daughter that the magnets are interchangeable because she’d probably take them off at school and lose one, so I’d have to get just the perfect one for her… it would have to be the Rainbow pattern (complete with unicorn!).

  142. wow, these look awesome ~ exactly what i’ve been looking for! my daughter loves the kitty & my son is crazy about rockets 🙂 Thanks for sharing this great company!

  143. I love the under the water theme!

  174. I think my favorite magnet set would be the modern art set.
