Last month, the June 8th was World Oceans Day, and we never stop to protect the ocean. Families like yours can now help save our oceans by making one small lifestyle change: Go plastic-free at lunchtime! ECO-mom Sandra Harris has provided one such solution with her award-winning brand, ECOlunchbox (www.ecolunchboxes.com), which is available at Target stores nationwide June 25th.
ECOlunchbox’s mission is to help families reduce their dependence on plastics and use products that produce zero waste to the environment. The accumulation of plastic waste has severely harmed our ocean life, having contributed to hazards like the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, and the decay of the Great Barrier Reef.
In fact, recent studies found that by the year 2050 – there will be more plastic than fish in our oceans! Learn more about the perils of plastic, here.
This is why ECOlunchbox offers a plastic-free lunchware alternative to regular food-packing containers. Every item in the ECOlunchbox line is made with non-toxic materials such as stainless steel, cotton or plastic-free silicone. The line boasts an array of eco-friendly food accessories, bentos, and bags that come in various shapes and sizes – even the container lids are made of silicone and embossed with inspiring ocean motifs.
Harris explains that if the silicone lids were to get lost in the environment, the silicone material won’t break down into small bits like plastic does in our oceans, where it’s ingested by marine birds and animals. According to the Washington Post, “Plastic has wound up in the stomachs of more than half the world’s sea turtles and nearly all of its marine birds, studies say.
Thanks to ECOlunchbox, tens of millions of pieces of trash has already been averts from use and disposal – confirmed by the company’s “Planet Impact Study”. It’s easy for you to help do the same: Next time you plan on packing food on the go, opt for a plastic-free lunch and shop ECOlunchbox at Target. Two of their ocean-inspired products from the line’s Blue Water Bento collection – the Seal Cup Trio and the Splash Box, is sold at select Target Stores Nationwide beginning June 25th, 2017.
