It’s the picnic season and sadly, if you’ve been out into the countryside recently, you will have probably noticed an increase in picnic waste and food-related litter. It’s one of those times you realise just how much packaging everyday foods include, and how few people bother to dispose of it properly!

There’s litter everywhere; along country roadsides where people have thrown it out of their car windows, in lay-bys, scattered in drifts around picnic areas, plastic bags flying like flags from bushes and trees, river paths clogged with soft drink cans and plastic bottles. All of which makes any product that reduces waste a jolly good idea.

Non-toxic and safe – approved by the FDA

Take the innovative Waste Free Lunch Kit from Kids Konserve. It’s a brilliant way to help encourage enthusiasm for looking after the environment, perfect for packing food in any circumstance from packed lunches at school to picnics and outdoor parties. And they contain absolutely no nasties like BPA, phthalates, PVC and lead, completely non-toxic.

All products made by Kids Konserve meet the super-strict standards insisted on by the USA’s Food and Drug Administration, who are responsible for safe food packaging through their Centre for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition.

Waste-free lunch kit contents

The kit comes in a recycled cotton sack, which comes in a choice of funky, fun prints. There’s a lovely little cotton napkin, practical and attractive. Plus a stainless steel drinks container, also brightly printed and made from safe, sturdy food-grade stainless steel. There’s a food kozy – a food wrap – which is an excellent idea, made from recyclable, safe, low density polyethylene and perfect for wrapping anything from butties to slices of cake. Two leak-proof, lidded stainless steel containers for transporting liquids like soup plus a fun recycled aluminium name tag, something kids really love because it means they can make their kit personal.

Environmentally friendly manufacturing in fair working conditions

Kids Konserve products are made responsibly in China, India and Taiwan. The manufacturers are dedicated to working towards green practices and support the products’ inventors’ determination to cut food waste to the bone. The factories are regularly audited by independent agencies to make sure the conditions offer a fair and safe place to work, check the environmental impact is as low as possible and environmental standards as high as possible.

Maintaining your kit for a long and useful life

The kit is wonderfully easy to take care of, easy to wash and keep clean. The bag itself is machine-washable on an eco-friendly cold setting. The stainless steel drinks bottle is hand washable with mild soap or, if you’re into simple alternatives, using diluted vinegar and baking soda. The two steel containers can go in the dishwasher. Their lids are hand-washable. The cotton napkin is machine washable and you can tumble dry it if you like. And the food kozy has a long life too, easy and quick to hand wash and air-dry.

If you’re looking for the perfect ethical gift for kids this summer, the Kids Konserve lunch kit is a fantastic idea.
