How PlanetBox Makes School Days Easier

How PlanetBox lunch boxes help manage school lunches

It may seem a bit early to be thinking about back-to-school, but summer has this tendency of slipping away. Before you know it, the school bells are ringing, and you’re scrambling to get everything together. Whether this will be your first year sending your little one off to class, or you’re a seasoned veteran of backpacks and homework, we want to help make your morning rush a little bit easier.

PlanetBox Reusable Lunch Kit

If you haven’t heard of PlanetBox Lunch Kits yet, listen up!

These reusable and highly personalizable lunch kits are flying off our shelves and for good reason. They are made from dishwasher-safe stainless steel and are easy to care for, non-toxic, and eco-friendly.

The PlanetBox kits come in 3 varieties that cater to different lunching needs. The Shuttle kit has two main compartments, making it an excellent choice for younger children, small snacks, or shorter days. The Launch kits and Rover kits get increasingly more complex and hold more food, and all of the kits include small closable containers that are perfect for dips. We have lots of fun ways to plan the perfect PlanetBox lunches.

Each kit comes with a choice of a wide variety of fun magnet sets to personalize your lunch box, and different options for how to house that lunch kit (Pocket Bag, Shuttle Bag, or a simple PlanetBox Sleeve), offering a kit that accommodates your child’s unique personality and interests.

BottleRocket Water Bottle

Staying hydrated is vital for your child’s health. Every single cell in your body depends on water for proper brain and body function. By sending your little to school with a full water bottle, you are helping to support your child in getting the hydration they need to blast successfully through the school day. The convenience of having water with them as they learn and grow will mean more chances for easy hydration, and less trips to the school water fountains, which make a perfect place for germ-swapping.

An accessory to the PlanetBox lunch kits, the BottleRocket water bottle has a lot of fantastic features. The easy-to-drink spout keeps sipping quiet, with a natural sipping spout that doesn’t cause distracting sucking noises. Perfect for in-class drinking.

Unlike other water bottles, the unique latch makes it simple for little hands to open and lock the BottleRocket up tight. The leak-proof cap stays open when drinking, but closes up tight to keep the drinking spout clean. It’s also double-walled and vacuum-insulated to keep drinks cold (or warm) for a long time. They are made from high-quality, food-grade stainless steel. There’s no lining or metallic taste, and no plastic touching your drink means no BPA, lead, or phthalates to take in.

There’s still more, too! You know how you have to keep some water bottles away from your papers and materials because they sweat as the cool liquids sit inside? The BottleRocket doesn’t sweat, keeping everything nice and dry. The best part for busy families is that it’s completely dishwasher-safe. There are no frustrating, mold-trapping straws to clean, as all the parts are designed to get a thorough cleaning easily.

A Quality JetPack Backpack

You might first think about ergonomics and how a backpack is affecting your child’s spine and posture, but there’s even more to a quality backpack than that. The JetPack Backpacks are made with children’s health and the environment in mind, and they’ve done a fantastic job creating this tool. JetPack bags come in a variety of awesome patterns and are all made with recycled fibers from plastic bottles. They are certified safe from lead, phthalates, and BPA. Since the bags are not treated with stain-resistant coatings, which can be quite toxic, the JetPacks are made to be easily spot-washed, and can be fully submerged in warm, soapy water.

The JetPack bags are designed with lots of room to carry books and binders, and there are multiple zippered pockets for erasers, pencils, and other small items. They also feature two side pockets which fit the BottleRocket or other water bottles. With a zippered docking station on the bottom of the bag for storing your PlanetBox lunch kit flat, carrying everything needed for the school day in one bag will make everything a bit easier to keep in check. (Since the bags are quite large,they are recommended for children eight years old and up.)
