We love the “new again” trend of packing school lunches in reusable containers–it is a little way even small children can push back against a society addicted to disposables. Plus, many of the containers like the ones at Kids Konserve are so eco-chic!
EarthLust bottles are fantastically chic, manufactured from a slender, tapered custom mold and coated with non-toxic paints. Each delicately rendered design evokes a love of, or a deeply respectful lust for, nature. Some of the artwork was created by mom-owner and inventor, Allison…
