Cutting down on plastic in the kitchen can get tricky when it’s time to pack snacks and lunches for school and work. I grew up on Tupperware—the same cracking and peeling Tupperware that is still in the drawers at my parents’ house. The same Tupperware that always left a distinctive taste to the leftovers I would heat up in my grade 7 classroom. (My teacher had brought in an old microwave for us to use, which felt like the most grown-up thing ever!)
Speaking of growing up, Cub started his first full-year of preschool a couple of weeks ago, and I was looking for a lightweight, durable container with dividers for his snack. Jay at Life Without Plastic recommended this round, stainless steel “take out container”:
What I love about all the containers we have from Life Without Plastic is that they’re built to last. You can purchase new silicone rings or new lids so your pieces don’t become obsolete when a lid goes missing or the silicone needs to be replaced. A few stainless steel or glass containers can replace a whole cupboard of mismatched plastic containers stained red from spaghetti sauce or warped from the dishwasher!
