Block Party Giveaway: Mama Goes Green – LunchBots and LunchSkins

Welcome to the Simple Living Media Summer Block Party! We’ve got 20 giveaways across the entire network this week to give you plenty of chances to win!

This giveaway is now closed.  The Winner will be announced on July 4th!  Thanks to everyone who entered.

We are celebrating this sizzling season with some hot giveaways! Our friend and virtual neighbor Mama Goes Green is kicking off the block party by giving Simple Kids readers a chance to win a wonderful gift package.

If you’ve been reading Simple Kids for a while then you know that we are big fans of eco-friendly lunch containers. My family has been using LunchBots stainless steel reusable containers and Lunchskins reusable bags as an alternative to plastic.

These containers have been traveling with us on family outings, long car trips, and, of course, in our lunchboxes.

I appreciate that they are dishwasher safe (top rack), are healthier than using plastic containers for food storage, and that I don’t have to spend money buying plastic baggies or lunch containers.

They are stylish, with a simple design that appeals to grown-ups as well as kids. The lids of the LunchBots are bright and colorful with a non-VOC finish. The lids fit tightly on the containers, too (though I wouldn’t use them for liquid storage).

The Lunch Skins are made from a German fabric that is certified as food safe in the US and Europe.  They are hand-sewn, well made, durable and bpa, lead, and phthalate free.  I may never buy plastic baggies again!

    Right now my kids’ favorite lunch item is probably animal crackers (no, they don’t eat a whole lunch of just animal crackers 🙂 ). They’re 14 months old (twins), so their palates aren’t very sophisticated 😉 I’d love to have these reusable containers for when we hit the road with the boys; they look like they’d hold up really well getting bounced around in the diaper bag!

  2. My girls’ favorite lunch is pb and j sandwiches. We are on the road traveling a lot so this gift would be perfect for our family.

  3. Kirstin says:

    I would use these for long car trips, swim meets, and my daughter’s breakfast and lunch. Her favorite lunch is crackers and cheeese.

    My children are still young and not yet in school, but I would definitely use the Lunch Skins for snacks when were are out and about. I would use the Lunch Bots for my husband who takes a peanut butter, applebutter, walnut, banana sandwhich every day to work.

  6. I have two HUNGRY little ones. I always pack snacks while we’re out and about, but I have to pack them in plastic containers. LOVE the skins-what a great way to pack snacks!

  7. i definitely would use the sandwich lunch skin to take my lunch to work.

  22. My 3-year-old’s favorite item for any meal is definitely cheese. 🙂 Initially, though, I’m thinking about this lunchbox set as a great boon to my husband– we’re trying to get him to eat less and eat out less. What a classy way to bring food to work!

  26. I would use this for my husband’s lunches since my kids dont go to school yet. I would just hope he will bring it back home! I usually pack leftovers or a quick sandwich for him and they would also be great for snack packs to put in the diaper bag too!

  46. Peanut butter and honey are a favorite. Our current variation is peanut butter, honey and banana wraps.

  47. These look so good, I would use them for my own lunch at law school. And the favorite lunch item here is fruit salad with honey and lemon juice. Yum!
