6 Reusable Lunch Products for Kids and Adults September 03, 2015 10:24

We love products that are not only stylish but also functional and eco-friendly. Mitz Accessories is committed to environmentally friendly practices and supporting companies that do the same. Below you’ll find a list of our favorite reusable lunch items as well as our favorite DIY reusable sandwich bag patterns.

 

#1) S’well Water Bottles

Reusable stainless steel bottles from S’well have a sleek shape and come in beautiful, fashionable patterns. The greatest feature of these bottles is that they keep hot beverages for 12 hours and cold for 24.

 

#2) Lunchkins Reusable Snack Bags

We love the sweet, colorful designs of these reusable snack bags! Each bag replaces at least 500 disposable bags and at ~$9 on Amazon Prime are as economical as they are eco-friendly.

#3) Lifefactory Glass Bottle

When we first heard this was a glass water bottle we thought it would easily break. Lifefactory’s design incorporates an exterior silicone sleeve that helps prevent breakage. Brilliant and stylish!

#4) Baggu Reusable Shopping Bag

We first saw these bags at Area Kids in Brooklyn, a hip, urban toy store filled with creative toys and one-of-a-kind cool gifts. Since the store is bag-free, they sell the Baggu bags at cost to their customers. We use this as a catch-all for lunch bags and papers and just about everything you need to grab on your way out the door. Bonus: it folds up SUPER small and first into a tiny bag for easy purse and backpack storage.

#5) Little Green Pouch

Every parent with an older baby knows how easy throwing a food pouch in your diaper bag can be. While we love the convenience of the store-bought pouches, we didn’t like the disposability. These pouches save money and we found they were great for feeding kids (and adults) things like yogurt and smoothies on the go.

#6) Mitz Accessories Neoprene Lunch Bags

We’re obsessed with modern designs with quirky pattern names like ‘Bike Lane’ and ‘Sweetheart.’ A modern take on the traditional neoprene lunch bag.
