A while back I discovered Grassroots, an eco-friendly online Canadian storefront based out of Toronto. Providing my daughter with litterless lunches is a priority for me and Grassroots was a great place to start as they have an excellent selection of litterless lunch options to choose from. Such as this Kids Konserve Thermos that they gave me the chance to check out.
The Kids Konserve Thermos is the perfect size for little hands. My four year old can easily open and shut it on her own. It’s also the perfect size portion wise. It fits a nice G-Girl sized portion of leftovers, Kraft dinner, or soup. The seal is fantastic. It’s 100% water tight. I can throw it in her backpack with soup in it without worries that it will leak. It does a good job of keeping things hot, or as my kid prefers, merely warm. Because my daughter actually dislikes piping hot food, I skip the suggested step of pouring boiling water into the thermos to pre-heat it.
The Kids Konserve Thermos is made of food grade stainless steel. The plastic lid is free from BPA, lead and phthalates. The container washes up easily. I love that it’s safe to toss it in the dishwasher. I also like that it’s not too deep, my hands can reach inside to give it a good scrub. It is sturdy and well made, and I can easily see us using this thermos for many years to come. It’s also nice to know that at the end of it’s life the entire container can be recycled (Stainless steel body, plus #5 plastic for the lid).
Overall, I am pretty impressed with the Kids Konserve Thermos. It is available from the Grassroots website for $24.99, which I think is reasonable given that it should last for years to come. Grassroots also carries a well rounded line of other environmentally friendly products, give their website a peek – www.grassrootsstore.com.
