Taking lunch into work is definitely something that more and more people are starting to do. It is a great way of saving money, reducing packaging waste and also using up leftovers. However very few 'lunch kit' products are designed for adults or have any sort of style about them. That is why we were so pleased to find the U-Konserve range of high quality, practical products with a definite stylish edge.
This smart, generously sized, stainless steel container is perfect for taking sandwiches, wraps, sushi and salad into work or out on a picnic. It comes with a clear lid which means it is also useful to store leftovers in the fridge (and see what is inside!).
The container is made from #304 (18/8) food-grade stainless steel. It comes with a leak proof #4 LDPE lid (LDPE is low density polyethylene which is widely recyclable).
16cm x 16cm x 7cm deep. 50oz.
Free of BPA, phthalates, PVC and lead.
Care Instructions: Dishwasher safe, top rack recommended. Although the lids are dishwasher safe, research has shown that for long term durability it is best to keep plastics out of extreme temperature environments like microwaves, dishwashers and freezers.
U-Konserve offer high-quality, long-lasting products that promote sustainability and health, and inherently strive to reduce the millions of tons of waste associated with single-serving packaged foods and plastic bottles.
The complete range is made from the safest, non-leaching, non-toxic, BPA, PVC, phthalate, and lead-free materials - a mouthful, but true! Lead, BPA, PVC, and phthalates are substances that are known to be harmful to our bodies with repeated exposure. The Company also strives to use recycled materials as much as possible, and many of their products are recyclable. The products also meet the standards of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The FDA is responsible for ensuring safety of all food packaging and food contact substances. Through the Centre for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (CFSAN), the FDA regulates food contact materials to ensure they are safe for intended use.
All the stainless steel containers are made of 304 food grade stainless steel solutions as it is proven to be the safest material to house food in.
U-Konserve offer a range of waste-free and reusable lunch packing for work, school, travel and life.
The Company was founded by Lynn Julian and Chance Claxton back in 2008 after they saw how much lunch waste their children's schools were generating each day. As well as contributing to landfill and pollutants they also felt this was sending the wrong message to the children. Kids Konserve came out of their desire to set an example of conservation for their children as well to empower them to be examples of change for the future. U-Konserve was later introduced as a range more appealing to adults as well as children.
All products are responsibly made in China, India and Taiwan in facilities that are working toward green practices, and are supportive of their mission to reduce waste. Independent agencies audit the working conditions and environmental impact to ensure that the facilities adhere to fair and safe labour practices and environmental standards.
