As a traveler, we should all be conscience of our carbon footprint on this beautiful planet we call home. It takes a lot of transportation to get to some of the most beautiful places in the world so the little things we can do at home and on the road, will ensure future generations can share in the same experiences.
ECO Adventure Kit is a great step in reducing your personal trash trail and carbon footprint. Completely plastic free, the ECO Adventure Kit is essential for your glamping, camping and daily lunch needs (kid tested!).
Constructed of durable stainless steel 201, the Tri Bento breaks down into three separate food containers that all nest and lock together. Each of the three layers can hold 1.5 cups of food with a total volume of 4.5 cups. A Stainless Steel Spork Single is included in your set and well as a pot gripper made from Stainless steel 304.
Why the pot gripper? Well, dear friends, after you have packed your heavily food into the Tri Bento ECO Adventure Kit, you can attach the pot gripper and immediately cook from the container itself. Greatly reducing your waste and camp dishes. YAY! More play time!
The bento containers can be used to cook food over a camp stove, toaster oven and a oven on medium heat. Please note that they should never be used over an open fire or microwave.
The construction of the ECO Adventure Kit allows you to bring a small salad, a thick soup and a meal to be warmed up without causing the lettuce to wilt.
The ECO Adventure Kit is not leak proof due to the absence of plastic in the construction. However, because the plastic has been left out of your lunch and our oceans you are guaranteed a meal that is non-toxic. Meaning that it is free of estrogen-mimicking toxins commonly found in plastic, such as BPA (bisphenol-A), BPS (bisphenol-S) and phthalates.
How do I Clean It?
The ECO Adventure Kit is dishwasher safe or may be cleaned with mild soap in warm water.
The ECO Adventure Kit is 4 inches high with a 5.25” base diameter. It can easily fit into an existing lunch pal at your house or you can purchase the machine washable ECObentobag on the company’s website.
The ECObentobag is a drawstring lunch bag created from handwoven khadi. The bag is fully lined and reversible. It comes in loud, beautiful block prints laden in rich history from Mahatma Gandhi.
When the containers are empty, I like to carabiner the set to the outside of my pack through the clasps.
The Stainless Steel Pot Gripper can be used for any of the ECOlunchbox containers with rounded edges. The ECO Spork Single is great for children 5+ to adults. With one end a generous bowl of scooping and three tines on the other for your stab-able foods. The spork is a bit little on the size but can fit easily into the TriBento boxes for storage.
Not only can the ECO Adventure Kit hold your food, it can double as a soap dish, towel/toiletry compartment, charging cable holder, etc. Be creative with your non-plastic gift from ECOlunchbox and let us help you save the planet.
ECO Adventure Kit retails for $36.00. The ECOLunchbox website also has amazing recipes you should check out. One of my favorites is the Peanut Butter Protein Balls.
Peanut Butter Protein Balls
1 cup organic rolled oatmeal (choose gluten-free if desired)
1/4 cup peanut butter (either creamy or chunky)
2 scoops LivWell cacao plant protein
3 tbsp. water (add more if needed)
Optional: 1 tsp. agave
Optional: 1/4 cup chocolate chips
Add oatmeal and LivWell cacao plant protein to a food processor. Pulse until ingredients form a flour-consistency. Add peanut butter, water, and agave (if desired), until mixture sticks together. Add mixture to a large bowl and use your hands to mix in the chocolate chips.
Roll into balls and serve immediately or store in an air-tight, plastic-free container in the fridge.
