What is a bento box?
A bento box is a reusable Japanese-style lunch box that typically holds a single portion meal consisting of a main dish and some sides. While traditional bento boxes usually contain rice, fish or meat, and some vegetables, today, bento boxes are used around the world to hold any type of food that can be carried in a box!
Why use a bento box?
Reduce your environmental impact
Using a bento box is a great way to reduce your impact on the environment by replacing single-use plastic and paper products with a functional, stylish lunch box that can hold your beautiful homemade meals day after day!
Did you know the average American household spends over $3000 a year on restaurants and takeout? In Australia, millennials spend more than $5000 a year on eating out on average. Preparing a bento box for your break at work or school even a few times a week can save you hundreds of dollars a year on your eating expenses.
The restricted size of a bento box helps to control meal portions, while movable dividers and accessories promote the packing of a well-balanced meal consisting of varied food groups.
