Who They Are
ECOlunchbox wants to create change, starting with lunchtime.
A mom on a mission, Sandra Ann Harris, founded ECOlunchbox in 2009 after packing one too many lunches with single-use plastic bags and cheap plastic containers for her and her two children. Having researched plastics for years as an investigative journalist, Sandra decided to take a stand. She didn’t want her children to be exposed to the harmful chemicals that are used to produce the petroleum-based products, especially the lunch containers she was sending with her children to school.
The solution came in the form of plastic-free, non-toxic products that are safe for people and the planet. With a collection ranging from food-grade stainless steel containers to artisan sewn lunch bags made from fair-trade certified textiles, ECOlunchbox is providing a healthier alternative and empowering families to make the world a better place–one lunch at a time.
In addition to the positive health and environmental impact of using ECOlunchbox products, families who make the switch will see a positive impact in their wallets. By making the switch, families save roughly $435 a year–the average amount of money a family made up of one adult and two children will spend on lunchtime packaging items such as plastic baggies, brown paper bags, and pre-packaged drinks and snacks. No matter how you look at it, ECOlunchbox is better for your family, the planet, and your wallet.
Sandra and her team hope that people who are motivated to reduce dependencies on plastic will start at lunchtime and pack their food in a healthy set of containers. With a range of storage containers, bento boxes, snack packs, and lunch bags, there’s a solution for mealtime, no matter what’s on the menu.
