These zero waste lunch bags make ideal alternatives to clingfilm for your sandwiches or lunch. Clingfilm is not just polluting to the planet, but it can’t be recycled and it also leaches chemicals onto the factory floor.
These are mostly made from natural materials that are wipe-clean. If you do wash any lunch bags that contain polyester, use a microfibre catch bag, to stop plastic particles washing away in the machine, into the sea.
Lunch Bag with Waterproof Lining
This lunch bag with waterproof lining is ideal to carry your lunch and is made with thick cotton canvas and a removable waterproof BPA-free lining (wipe clean only, to avoid microplastics escaping in the washing machine). Handmade in Bristol, just roll it down to form a bowl. Perfect for salads, sandwiches and leftover pasta, veggies or rice, you can also use it as a regular lunch box for sandwiches and snacks.
The sturdy web straps are adjustable and easily tied to the right size. Available in 5 colours (teal/gorse yellow, fern green/gorse yellow, burnt orange/dusty pink or burnt orange/teal blue or petrol blue/forest green). To close, just hold the bag flat at the top and roll down (pull the sides together and tie shut). For each bag sold, £1 goes towards planting a tree.
