Earth Friendly Products That Make Us Smile


When it comes to making lunches, one thing I am constantly on the hunt for are products that are earth friendly. Lavish and Lime, in Vancouver is a company that provides such products.

Growing up, I cannot even imagine how I contributed to our global break-down with all my paper bag lunches and plastic (non-reusable) containers. I don’t want my son’s generation to pay for my sins. So when it comes to buying eco-friendly lunch products that are Earth Friendly – Lavish and Lime are there to make sure we as parents have what we need.

Celebrate the Earth with Lavish and Lime Earth Friendly Products!

There is nothing better than a container that puts all the snacks under one lid. The combos can be endless. LunchBots stainless steel snack containers are fantastic, divided into two compartments they are healthier than plastic. Perfect for school lunches, better for the environment and extremely durable, each container is lab certified and lead-free, which makes this mom happy!

My son loves using it, he takes grapes or carrots, crackers and pasta or whatever he wants and the foods don’t touch each other, which he loves.  Great for solid foods only. These handy little guys retail for $21.00

Stainless Steel Smoothy & Drink Straws

One of my favorite things to have each morning is a smoothy, made with frozen fruit, water, no ice and just mix it up in my blender.  Mmmmmm a nice, icy cold meal replacement thick shake that just hits the spot to help jump-start my morning. One thing I hate the most though is having to use a plastic straw.  Cleaning a plastic straw is not easy, bacteria and mold get inside, which isn’t healthy.

I absolutely love using my Lavish and Lime stainless straws for my smoothies. Now you can swap out plastic straws for these non-toxic, long-lasting stainless steel ones.  They are 100% recyclable metal straws, free of BPA, phthalates and other harmful toxic chemicals and can last a life time. Dishwasher safe and reusable, I love that using these straws not only keeps the environment safe, but stops birds from thinking they are worms and choking on them.  Sold as singles only.  These retail for $3.75

Eco Vessel Blue Insulated Kids Water Bottle

No lunch is complete without having a something nice and cold to drink.  Eco Vessel Kids Water Bottles are insulated, ergonomically designed and highly durable, which makes them great for little hands.  There is an easy flip straw feature and a strong loop for little fingers to carry.

Vacuum Insulated with two walls of BPA free and non-leaking stainless steel, my son loves that his drinks stay cold all day long, instead of plastic which can heat up and make drinks taste old and yucky! Available in different styles and colors, they retail for $24.00 and well worth the money.

  22. Darwin April 11, 2013 at 2:46 am

    We do the usual recycling and reusing, but for earth month, my wife and I take the kids out to the community garden and start planting for the spring. It reminds them why it's important to take care of the earth and our environment.

  23. Robert Wise April 11, 2013 at 2:29 am

    I have been turning off lights when I leave a room – already have been doing this for years. Been using candles. I have been making an effort to use my washer & dryer during peak hours – and have been hanging clothes on the line when the weather is nice. Also been handwashing dishes more – rarely use dishwasher. I have stopped using ziploc bags – instead using glass containers to store food. Working on starting a vegetable garden.

  24. Vesper April 11, 2013 at 2:08 am

    as always recycling and keeping usage of electricity down

  32. candess phillips April 9, 2013 at 8:21 am
