"The Laptop Lunches Bento Box makes lunch fun. It's easy to pack and fun to eat! It keeps foods separate, fresh and delicious. It's nice not having to worry about BPA leaking into food. We love that it’s easy to clean and can go in the dishwasher."

With the long days and warm nights, it only seems fitting that July is National Picnic Month. Heading to the great outdoors with friends and family is one of our favorite things to do. Our bento boxes make great picnic containers when packing for multiple people, or multiple foods. Grab one today, and happy picnicking!

Composting transforms organic waste into the most valuable soil amendment, saving limited landfill space, and reducing the cost of waste disposal. Check out Waste Less Living's website to see their "Composting 101" page. It's filled with lots of good information that can help you change garbage into something usable!

"We've had our Laptop Lunch boxes for 6+ years. I have thought that I needed to get "new" ones multiple times, but every time I go to inspect them, they look almost good as new! I can't believe how well they've held up through the years. I heard about your company on the Today Show when the kids where toddlers and I was a stay at home mom. I teach school, and I've never seen a lunch box hold up this well. Great product- great durability- worth the money!"

-- Mary Beth Richerson, Lebanon, TN

"I bought the dual tote for my husband, along with the laptop lunchbox and a set of Bento Buddies. It's been working well to get him in the "brown bagging it" kind of mind set. The lunchbox fits perfectly in the bottom section and the top gets his breakfast bar, a piece of fruit, and whatever else he might need for the day. Perfect!"

-- Misty, Pittsburgh
