Go Green are one of the leading lunch box brands on the market. Go Green Lunch Boxes are durable, they have a turn ‘n lock technology making them completely leak-proof and with the silicone seals around each compartment this helps food stay fresh too. They are BPA and Phthalate Free, Leach and Lead Free. They have been quality tested to ensure environmental and health regulations are met and can be recycled at the end of their life.
Each Go Green Lunch Box Set comes with an insulated lunch bag, a large five-compartment lunch box (approximately 31 x 19 x 7 cm and holding around 8 cups of food) and an 8oz drink bottle that fits into the luchbox. With each set you will also receive a FREE Ice Pack (note this Ice Pack is not enough to keep lunch cool all day in Australia you will need to add an additional ice pack of some kind such as the MontiiCo Ice Pack).
The lunch box base is top shelf dishwasher safe (on normal heat settings not high), the lid is recommended to be hand washed so the heat from the dishwasher doesn’t effect the rubber hinges. If the lid is washed in the dishwasher the expected life is up to 12 months only. Lids can be purchased separate if you choose to dishwasher your full lunch box.
The lunch bag is recommended to be wiped out with a damp cloth and soapy water or disinfectant liquid. It is not recommended to wash in the washing machine or dishwasher. Do not submerge the bag in water or it can cause the whiteboard to rust over time.
Q: May I put the food container in the microwave?
A: Though it is microwave-safe, it is never recommended to place any plastic products in the microwave.
Q: May I put yogurt, apple sauce, salad dressing, or pudding-like food products in the compartments?
A: Yes. Our revolutionary “turn ‘n lock” technology ensures that your child’s lunch stays fresh and within its compartment.
Q: How do I clean the food container and water bottle?
A1: The food container’s retention clips are easily unfastened, so the lid and box can be separated and washed with warm soapy water.
A2: Due to the inconsistent heat temperatures of many dishwashers, we do not recommended putting the lid in the dishwasher. The base is top shelf dishwasher safe on standard setting only.
A3: For best results, and due to their light weight, we recommend the lid’s five silicone bands be removed daily and hand-washed.
Q: How do I put the silicone bands back in the food box lid?
A: The circumference of the silicone bands are purposely slightly larger than the channels into which they fit, because there has to be enough flex in the bands such that when the lid is closed/tabs locked, the downward pressure causes the bands to “bulge” outwards to create the leakproof seal around each compartment. If the bands fit just right/snug, then “leakproof” is not guaranteed (because there is no “bulging of the bands” to form the proper seal). Therefore, it is important that, after removing/washing the bands, they have to be “completely tucked back into” their respective channels.
Q: How should I store my lunch box set?
A: The fabric bag and food container should be stored separately and in “open” positions, to ensure proper ventilation.
Q: Do I need new bands? Seems like they are stretched because I put them in the wrong lid channels?
A: First, please understand that silicone’s “elastic” property is different from that of rubber (such as a rubber band) – though it stretches, it doesn’t stay “stretched” permanently [if left alone, it goes back to its original shape (placing silicone in hot water definitely will speed up the process)].
