A couple of days ago was the first day of school. I would not want to send my kids with lunch boxes tainted with lead...so they will be carrying lunch totes by Mimi The Sardine.The coated cotton is made in Sweden, the bags made right here in San Francisco. Safe and cute, and usually for sale at Whole Foods. Another great option, is offered by Lunchopolis. These eco friendly lunch boxes also come with re-usable, stackable plastic boxes and a water bottle. No need for plastic baggies and juice boxes. I have not seen these lunch boxes around town, so I will be ordering them from the company based in Southern California.
