Now, onto the items!
Upcycled Lunch Bag, Kenya – Value $10?
This lunch bag is made from upcycled cement bags! And it is finished with fabric trim on the edges and handles:
I like the choice of mixing the somewhat basic cement bag plastic with a bold fabric pattern.
It measures about 12 inches tall, 8 inches wide, with 4 inches in depth. (And it folds up nicely, too!)
Eco Lunch Box Tri Bento – Value $26
This bento box is all stainless steel so it’s dishwasher safe and BPA free!
I’m trying to transition to as much glass and stainless steel as possible for cooking/eating, so this is perfect for leftovers!
This set includes a lid and three containers that stack together.
Handmade Cloth Napkin, India – Value $5
This napkin is 100% cotton with a stamped print design.
On the rare occasions when I pack a lunch, I have never thought to add a napkin, but that changes now that I have a cute lunch napkin and lunch bag!
Light My Fire Spork, Sweden – Value $3
This spork is BPA-free and dishwasher safe, too! It’s pretty lightweight, though, so I wouldn’t recommend using it for any heavy-duty spork needs! (It gets some mixed reviews on REI due to breakage.)
GlobeIn Greeting Card, 6×4″ (Retail $3)
This box also included a blank card that fits well with the lunch theme.
This box also included a $30 coupon code for Matter Prints – and it works on their sale section, too!
Verdict: This box has a value of about $47. I think that’s a fair value for the cost, and I could be underestimating the cost of the lunch bag (I wasn’t having any luck finding it online). And as always, I love that this is a subscription that focuses on fair trade and giving back. And everything in this box is super practical, too.
