No matter what your back-to-school plan looks like, lunchtime is non-negotiable. Whether you’re sending your kiddo off for in-person instruction, homeschooling or a hybrid of the two, packing up a lunch can remain a part of the morning routine.

With sustainability and functionality in mind, we’ve stocked the Motherly Shop with one of our favorite lunch bags that’s suitable for kids and adults. It’s designed by the French eco-lifestyle brand EKOBO, and we’re not only crushing on it for its good looks.

It’s eco-friendly.

The innovative design is crafted from recycled PET, up-cycling five water and soda bottles. Creating this fabric not only uses 2/3 less energy but also about 90% less water than producing virgin polyester. Going green can seem like a daunting task, but every little change we make adds up—especially when it comes to all the gear we supply our kiddos with.

It’s got a place for everything.

External pockets offer a place to keep a snack separate while loops keep cutlery in place if finger foods aren’t the only thing on the menu.

Performance? No problem.

High-quality insulated construction keeps foods hot or cold, and the generous opening makes it easy for little hands to unpack.

Check out our favorite EKOBO lunch bag (and a bonus!) from the Motherly Shop.

Perfectly sized to slip right inside the lunch bag, EKOBO’s bamboo bento box is awesome for picky eaters. It’s clutch for keeping foods separate and prevents any “my sandwich tasted like the banana you packed!” complaints (true story.) Like all EKOBO products, it’s sustainably produced and completely free of BPA, PVC and phthalates.
