Eco-friendly packaging you can reuse for lunch
Do you like to bake? Want to save money this year by staying out of the stores and spending more time in the kitchen? Whip up a few batches of festive cookies or loaves of banana, nut, or pumpkin bread, and you’ll have a nice supply of homemade holiday treats to give your friends, loved ones, and co-workers! And instead of wrapping them in a tossable cardboard box lined with dumpster clogging foil, paper or plastic wrap, why not make eco-friendly packaging part of the gift? Our EasyLunchbox containers, with their colorful lids, make an eye-catching, useful, and reusable container to hold your sweet treats.
Who doesn’t like to receive a homemade gift that was lovingly prepared by you? With the holidays right around the corner, now is a good time to start compiling your list of yummy recipes so that you’ll have them handy when it’s time to get baking. Or start now and freeze your confections – that way, you’ll always have some available for a last minute hostess gift. If you want to do a cookie exchange, consider having a stack of our containers on hand for your guests in which to take home their stash.
An appreciated ‘helping hands’ gift for those who like to bake, but are short on time: assemble the dry ingredients in our containers and tie on a pretty recipe card with baking tips and what to add to make the batter complete. Makes a great teacher gift too.
Mailing your gift? Ever heard of edible packing materials? Now you can ditch the styrofoam packing peanuts that aren’t nearly as tasty or green! Throw a couple of handfuls of mini marshmallows into the container tray to keep your goodies snug/prevent breakage, and then toss the bigger sized marshmallows into the carton, around our container(s), to keep it safe during shipping. (Jet puffed takes on a new meaning when they’re actually going on a jet!)
Other items to wrap
It’s easy and fun to make gifts that are low cost and easy on the environment. EasyLunchbox containers are reuseable all year long and can be the packaging for all kinds of things other than food…. maybe for a crafter – some colorful beads? Or for your handy guy – some shiny new hardware and drill bits?
