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!
