Greentainers available at EnviroBottles ~ Review and Giveaway!



As a parent of three packing snacks for school and trips is a daily chore. It can also come at a great expense. Our society has somehow evolved into one of convenience and waste! Individually, pre-packaged snacks have become a main-stay for many parents. I've tried hard over the years to avoid such snacks not only because of the added waste but also because of the nutritional issues regarding highly processed foods but I must admit I have fallen victim to convenience on several occasions. I do buy granola and protein bars which are individually packaged but I try to buy other items in bulk packages to be dished out or pack a lot of fresh fruits and veggies. Greentainers are great waste-free stainless steel containers perfect for dishing out those deliciously healthy snacks I try to opt for. Traditional plastic lunch containers have been a concern lately due to the BPA scare but they are also not as long lasting as one might originally believe. I've had plastic containers melt, wear due to use and washing, stain, and even become chewed up by my dog! Stainless steel is far more clean and durable. Greentainers have a very long life but are also 100% recyclable if ever they do expire!

Environmentally conscious retailer Envirobottles carries these fabulous containers and gave me the opportunity to try them for myself. I received two small snack containers and one large two-tiered clip container. At first glance I thought the small containers were too small but after filling them with grapes I realized they are perfect for my children's snacking needs! These small containers would be ideal for dishing out yogurt, crackers, grapes, or even dry cereal. For larger snacks or even lunch items the large two-tiered greentainer is excellent. Unclip the side clips and open this container and you will find a shallow removable dish with a hidden space beneath. This division of space is great for dividing crackers and cheese or a salad and dressing, or perhaps carrots and dip! What a cool and practical idea!

Stop waste, save your money, and your health and our planet in the process! Order greentainers from Enviro-bottles using your 10% Northern Mama reader's discount!
