  • Usefulness: 10/10. Designed to replace your plastic Tupperware containers, the Blue Water Bentos come in a variety of different sizes that are perfect for everything from leftovers to salad dressing. Each container nests inside the others, for easy storage.
  • Durability: 9/10. The containers are made from 100 percent stainless steel, and the lids are made from food-safe silicone. Both can withstand the dishwasher and have a spill-proof design.
  • Sustainability: 10/10. Everything from ECOlunchbox is made without BPA, plastic, or phthalates–which is better for you and the environment.

Final Verdict: Looking for an eco-friendly way to travel with your food (even if it’s just from your home to your desk)? ECOlunchbox’s Blue Water Bento Set is sustainable, spill-proof, and easy-to-clean.
