In my quest for making our household as "green" as possible for my family, I have been looking for products that suit our lifestyle. I was recently introduced to Orkids.ca's Sustainable Stainless Steel Snack, Lunch, and Storage Containers. I have to say that after turning to stainless steel, I am now hooked!
The benefits of stainless steel are numerous. For one, being a mom who is concerned about making sure my family's food containers, plates, and cups are all BPA-free, I feel safe knowing that stainless steel, unlike plastic is non-leaching.
I've got a toddler. That means lots of drops, spills, and yes...breaks! I don't have to worry about broken glass or plastic when I use stainless steel! The products are durable, recyclable, shatter-proof, reusable, compact, and they keep hot food hot and cold food cold!
Another thing I love is that the stainless steel containers help me keep our lunches "green". I am all about the "paperless" lunches and try to use as little disposable items. I feel really good knowing I'm doing even a little bit to help reduce our carbon footprint and tread a little lighter on the earth.
I got the double layer lunch tiffin and a set of six stainless steel drinking cups.
The tiffin is perfect for lunches!
We love, love, love the drinking cups. In fact, I'm even contemplating completely switching ALL our glasses into stainless steel cups!
What's even better is that Hubby and Little One both give their "Two Thumbs Up" for Orkids.ca!
Stainless steel tiffins, cups, nesting containers, as well as small, medium and large containers are available on the Orkids.ca website.
You can also find Orkids on Facebook and on Twitter!
