A handy size for everyday use at work or school. made from polypropylene and with a foam and foil lining, these handy zip-up cooler bags keep food cool or warm (depending on what you have put in there) and are easy to store when not in use.
A slightly bigger version of the above perfect for a lunch with a crowd. Lunch bags - these are the same size as our cooler bags but they don't have any thermal lining.
The same size as our standard COOLB codes these lines are made from recycled plastic bottles. They don't have the foam or foil lining that our cool bags have so are lightweight and perfect for everyday use.
if you need a variety of sized storage containers for lunch, kitchen or craft storage then these are the perfect set. We offer 2 sized sets each with lidded boxes. With the mixed sizes, you can use them to keep your food or trinkets separate and when not using them for storage, they nest neatly inside each other.
Our bamboo range offers an alternative material and size lunch box and ticks all the boxes for an eco-friendly product as are made from a bamboo composite.
Are they food safe?
Yes, all our plastic and bamboo lunch boxes are food safe. Our cool bags are suitable for carrying and keeping food warm or cold, but the contents need to be wrapped or covered.
Can they go in the microwave or dishwasher?
It depends on the product. If an item can or can't be used in the microwave or dishwasher it will clearly show on the product and packaging.
Can I used them in the fridge and freezer?
Cooler bags are not designed to go in the freezer but can be stored in there for a short period of time. Frozen or cool items can be stored in our cooler or picnic bags to keep them cool for longer.
Our plastic lunch boxes are suitable for use in the fridge and freezer. The material composition of bamboo products means they cannot be used in the fridge or freezer.
