Envirostyles~Restyling Your Reuseable Lunch Kit!

I know I sound like a broken record as I spout off on the virtues of reusable lunch containers and wraps but when something is this important for the environment and this easy to incorporate into your everyday life it's worth repeating! As an educator and parent I know the value of review and repetition. My children know precisely why their snacks and sandwiches are not wrapped in plastic, "Because plastic is not good for the earth!" is what they always say. And I take pride in knowing they learned this from my everyday actions. EnviroStyles owner, Nicola, believe as I do that it is the small things you do daily that can make all the difference!

EnviroStyles is family run, Canadian owned and operated, and conscious of their environment business practices. Envirostyles bases it's product choices on The following criteria "they must be reusable, functional, good quality, stylish, fun, safe to use and ethically made". When you purchase products from Envirostyles you know you are getting the best in quality, eco-friendly bags and lunch containers.I have tested and reviewed various reusable wraps in the past but I especially like the 4myearth products sold by EnviroStyles. 4myearth wraps are manufactured in Australia and the inside of the wrap is coated with a unique and environmentally friendly coating {TPU} free of PVC and phthalates. There are no heavy metals in the coating and it is bio-degradable. The wonderful thing about this coating is it keeps food fresh and it negates the need to sew in a lining which could eventually start to separate from the wrap causing it to be ruined. The wrap is one piece of fabric, durable and easy to clean. Just wipe with soapy water or toss into the washer and hang dry!

Even more unique than the wraps--which come in small, medium, and large sizes--4myearth fabricates pockets out of the same polyester coated with TPU. I had never seen these before! These pockets are pouches with a Velcro closure which are fabulous for the small snacks children love. Perfect for small crackers, raisins, nuts, even grapes, or cheerios these pockets make the plastic baggie entirely obsolete. The pockets also come in larger sizes for sandwiches and larger lunch items.

My kids love the style, the cool designs, and colours! I love the ease and convenience of these wraps and pockets. An added bonus is the name tag stitched on to each pocket and wrap for easy labelling and preventing loss. So rethink your lunch routine and restyle your lunch kit with these unique wraps and pockets. Your whole family will love them and the earth will thank you!
