The King of All Lunchboxes

Posted by: Sarah

I’m a little ashamed of just how excited (through the roof excited! SO EXCITED!) I am over a child’s lunchbox, but you all, I found the perfect one for my son to take to preschool. It’s called the Goodbyn and I’m quite smitten.

Up until this point, I had been using a fabric insulated lunch bag for outings, but I wasn’t too happy with food becoming crushed while stuffed into my son’s backpack. Plus, the amount of plastic baggies I was using to keep his food separated was was really adding up. Every Monday morning, while packing his lunch, I would joke to my husband about how my plastic baggy usage would probably get me fired from writing for this website. Thus began my search for the best children’s eco-friendly lunchbox, which was actually quite exhausting. There are a fair share of lunchboxes out there, but the Goodbyn had so many great features that I ordered one immediately.

In a nutshell, the Goodbyn is the first lunchbox to eliminate the need for plastic bags and drink boxes. It is 100% recyclable, dishwasher-safe, free of BPAs, phthalates and lead and made in the USA. Plus, I’m kind of a stickler for design, and the Goodbyn has a simple aesthetic with a great choice of colors. (Although, the box comes with 275 stickers, so feel free to decorate to your heart’s content.)

Take a look at some of the features:

  1. Kid-tested intuitively designed animal ears make for easy opening.
  2. Built-in handle.
  3. Different sized, individually-sealing compartments for all types of food.
  4. 8.5-ounce bottle, which totally eliminates the need for juice boxes.
  5. A sticker set to decorate the lunchbox.

We’ve been using the Goodbyn this past week, and I really can’t say enough about it. (Although, phew! That was enough, don’t you think?) If you are in the market for an eco-friendly lunchbox for your little one, I highly recommend it!
