GO GREEN LUNCH BOX – Review & Giveaway!

Whenever I get a new product to try I always try to photograph it ASAP in case something happens to it before I have a chance to review it like a huge pasta sauce explosion.  It may sound like I am being dramatic, but if you were at my house this morning you would understand that it looked like a murder scene when the Berbere Stew I was prepping somehow spilled ALL OVER the counter, cabinets, sink, dishwasher door, floor, you get the picture.  You just never know, so I always try to take pictures of products right away whether I end-up posting them on Veggie Grettie or not.

I was recently sent a Go Green Lunch Box to review and I am so impressed with it.  My daughter was super excited to try the lunchbox and was so disappointed every morning that she woke-up and learned I hadn’t photographed it yet.  We had been having a string of icky grey days weather-wise and that doesn’t make for good photographs.  The first sunny day we had I dropped everything and snapped a bunch of photos.  My daughter was so happy to learn that the photos had been taken and the lunch box was finally hers.

The Go Green Lunch Box has a lot of features that I really appreciate, however the bento box design is my favorite since it seems to inspire a lot of creativity when making lunches.  I had so much fun trying to decide what to put into each compartment and there is so much room!  This is not a small lunch box.  I could easily pack a huge lunch for my husband in one of these lunchboxes and cover all the bases from appetizer, to main dish, to dessert, and beverage (It comes with an 8 oz. reusable drink container).

This is a very well designed lunch box in that the lid has silicone seals for each of the 5 compartments which keeps all of the food and flavors separate.  I tried hummus, yogurt, and other sauces and they all stayed within their own compartments with no leaking (However, I also did a soup test and there was some leakage).  There is also a locking mechanism on the lid which prevents it from opening and spilling (very smart design feature).  In addition the lunch box is dishwasher safe (top shelf), though I find that it is very easy to hand wash.

It is apparent that the Go Green Lunch Box was designed by a mother who understands children’s lunch needs;  There is even a white board where you can write your child a message!

Now…to the GIVEAWAY.

  1. Gretchen,
    Love the patterns and compartments! This totally solves the many containers and lids problem we have every morning!!
    I completed 1, 3 & 4…FB was being weird. Fingers crossed!!

  2. oops…forgot to say, the “come back to this page” link didn’t work for me it brought me to a page not found. So I just commented above. Cheers!

  3. Good morning Grettie! I am already an avid twitter follower, facebook “liker”, and a subscriber… so I tweeted about you 🙂 Thank you! This lunch box is what I’ve been looking for. Looks like a great urban commuter box, or a great bag for my nephew 🙂 Thanks for the review!

  4. I just signed up to follow your blog and like you on FB. My lucky day because this is the first time I’ve found your blog, just in time for a give away. My husband takes his breakfast and lunch to work everyday. Since we’ve changed to a plant based diet we have to pack a ton of food for all family outings since we can just go to a drive thru. Something like this lunch box would be great for us.

  5. I don’t need to submit for the giveaway because I already have one for both my boys and I love it!!!!! Grettie – enjoy yours! and congrats to the winner!!!! You won’t be disappointed :)!

    I love these lunch boxes! They are perfect for holding lots of good vegan food for my daughter Hallie when she starts Kindergarten in the fall. Right now in Pre K she only is in half a day (no lunch) so when the fall starts she’ll need a lunch box. She loves the green circle lunch box in the middle above. I signed up for the newsletter,following you on twitter, tweeted about the giveaway, and email friends & family about the giveaway. (Though I used my email with yahoo to send out the email. That email is princesseve1373@yahoo.com) If I used FB would have done that too. Wonderful lunch boxes which would be greatly appericated and used on our end! Thanks and have a lovely evening!
