Why send your kid off to school or childcare with a boring old lunch bag when there are so many more fun, stylish and eco-friendly options these days? One of my favourite brands making super-cute, durable and reusable “lunchbugs” is Mimi the Sardine.
There are many fabric options to choose from, so whether your little one is into airplanes, animals, pretty flowers or ladybugs, there is one in their collection of fun Swedish designs that is sure to appeal.
Made from 100% organically grown cotton, the fabric has a water-based acrylic coating (not PVC) that is water, soil and mess resistant, yet remains soft and supple. And just to be extra sure (because by now you know that I’m pretty picky about toxins and the environment) the coated fabric meets CPSIA requirements, and the Oeko-Tex 100 Standard, which certifies that it does not contain harmful chemicals and components.
And because we all know kids are sometimes (ok, often) prone to spills, these lunchbugs can also be machine washed to keep them looking great!
While we’re at it, when you’re packing that lunch, why not ditch the plastic wrap and go for a reusable food wrapper instead? I’m a sucker for great design, and I love snackTAXIs because not only do they come in two perfect sizes for sandwiches and all kinds of snacks, the selection of materials is fabulous – from retro-cool designs to kid-friendly motifs they have dozens to choose from.
The exterior of a snackTAXI is 100% cotton and, to protect your food, the interior is lined with polyurethane coated nylon that has been tested and confirmed to be lead and phthalate free. Take a closer look at the styles available on our website.
