Holiday Gifting | A Greener Lunch
Living in New York, weekday lunches are a thing, you know this if you have waited in a line for Sweet Green or Dig Inn that stretches around the block. We like a salad or grain bowl just as much as the next person, but what we don’t like is the environmental footprint of throwing away their plastic containers. We have found two pretty alternatives that they are not only better for the planet, but they will be easier on your wallet, since bringing your own lunch is more economical.
THE PORTER BOWL
This stylish ceramic food container that can easily fit your salad, leftovers or your grain bowl packed with healthy vegetables. The snug BPA-free silicone lids makes sure that what’s inside stays inside, until you are ready to enjoy. Plus, we love the pretty pastel colors they offer including blush (featured here), mint or slate.
Available at W&P
TAKENAKA BENTO BOX
There is much to love about this compact and colorful bento box. This two-tired storage container is both microwavable and dishwasher safe making it a sure bet for leftovers, sandwiches, salads or sliced vegetables for a snack at the office.
