Introducing PlanetBox: The Sustainable and Durable Lunchbox for Back to School in Prince George!

by Bailey Bouwman

As the back-to-school season approaches, we know that you're gearing up for a fresh start, and that includes packing nutritious and waste-free lunches. As your local children's boutique in Prince George, we're working to expand our collection of mealtime favourites to prepare your kids for lunchtime, whether at daycare or elementary school!

If you're looking for a lunchbox that's not only durable but also environmentally friendly, we've got the perfect solution for you: PlanetBox! Now available at Nest & Sprout. 

PlanetBox is a brand that has captured the hearts of many families, and it's no surprise why. Founded in 2009 by parents Robert and Caroline Miros, PlanetBox was born out of frustration with the lack of plastic-free and sustainable lunchbox options on the market. They envisioned a solution that would provide parents and children with a durable, long-lasting, and zero-waste lunchbox, all while encouraging healthier eating habits.

Personal Recommendation - A Trusted Favorite

As a parent, I understand the struggles of finding the perfect lunchbox for my kids. After going through countless plastic lunchboxes that broke or wore out quickly, I stumbled upon PlanetBox over four years ago, and it has been my family's favourite ever since. I have so many broken lunch boxes that I dropped on the tile, or just wore out - or worse they rusted, lids warped, or something didn't quite last.

We prefer packing relatively dry lunches, and PlanetBox has proven to be the ideal fit for our needs. Though we do have the accompanying accessories that help us pack sauces and dips! From daycare to elementary school, PlanetBox has been a loyal companion in our lunchtime journey. I even use one regularly for packing my lunch at work. The durability and eco-conscious design are second to none!

Introducing PlanetBox: A Greener Lunchtime Journey

PlanetBox is not just an ordinary lunchbox; it's a commitment to sustainability and a greener future. Here's why it stands out:

  • Designed for Sustainability: PlanetBox lunchboxes are crafted from long-lasting, durable stainless steel, ensuring they can withstand the test of time and resist wear and tear. This means you won't have to keep replacing your lunchbox year after year, making PlanetBox a one-time investment that will serve you for years to come.

  • Reduce Waste, Be Eco-Friendly: By choosing PlanetBox and using it daily, you can prevent the need for at least 180 single-use containers per year. This significant reduction in waste helps protect the planet, making it a small yet meaningful step towards a greener future.

  • Safe and Toxin-Free: Unlike plastic containers that can leach harmful chemicals into food, PlanetBox is made from stainless steel, giving you peace of mind that your family's meals are safe and free from toxins.

  • Streamlined and Effortless: With PlanetBox's clever design, packing lunches becomes a breeze as it eliminates clutter and keeps things organized. After the meal, just pop the lunchbox into the dishwasher for easy cleaning. It's convenience without compromise.

The PlanetBox Collection at Nest & Sprout includes the Launch, Shuttle Box, and a selection of accessories to cater to your specific needs. We brought in products you can't find at Costco, and accessories you might want to expand your current products. As a locally owned shop in Prince George, BC, we start many of our new product collections small and expand as your interest grows. Talk to us about products and needs you might have.

While it may come with a higher initial investment than conventional plastic lunchboxes, the long-term benefits far outweigh the cost. You'll be investing in a lunchbox that promotes sustainability, durability, and safety—a product that truly lasts.
