Mine isn’t. In fact, I’m completely plastic-dependent. A few nights a week, we tuck sandwiches and fruit into tiny plastic lunch containers to be toted off to four different locations the following day. And we stow leftovers in plastic, glass or ceramic bowls with tight fitting lids.
The not-so-great news is that our plastic containers have had heavy use for years and were made before BPA-free plastic even existed. I know it’s time to replace them. But would it be possible to use only glass or stainless steel from now on? Or should I just go for the safer plastics on the market?
Because of weight and function, the only product that seems just as easy as plastic is stainless steel containers. I want a product that will nest on the shelves, and fit easily into lunch boxes for school. The Kids Konserve Nesting Trio of Stainless Steel Containers is on sale for $20-which isn’t nearly as inexpensive as plastic, but feels a bit safer.
Have you managed to live without plastic? What is your food storage system of choice and how does it work with home-packed lunches? Thanks for your feedback!
