Kids Konserve Earth Day Review and Giveaway!

The biggest eco-friendly and toxin-free difference you can make in your daily routine for you and your child is to not only provide healthy snacks and meals, but also to provide then in containers and with products that you can trust to be safe!  It’s a huge plus when in doing so you can reduce your waste significantly and set a great example for your little ones!

Kids Konserve has some wonderful products that do just that, and they have them in some perfect packages for you to help you start out on your quest toward a litter-free lunch or snack for you or your child!  Their Lunch Pack comes with everything you would need for a healthy lunch, and their Snak Pack has the perfect toxin-free, safe containers and wraps to make sure you will be enjoying your snack break in style!

The Kids Konserve Snak Pack I received, all ready for me to pack my lunch in the morning!

Waste-free lunch kits and eco-cool reusable lunch/snack products… Toss out the baggies, fold up the foil, Kids Konserve empowers kids and parents to do their part in saving the environment. Kids Konserve challenges teens and families to cut down on the waste created by packing lunches/snacks, while teaching about the importance of reuse.

For this Review/Giveaway I was given the Snak Pack to review!  This pack comes with a Cotton drawsting reusable bag, a food cozy for sandwiches, a stainless steal container, and a cotton cloth napkin!

SAPsMaMa Thinks: Kids Konserve Snak Pack!

Kids Konserve Snack Pack!

I was excited to review the new snak pack from Kids Konserve.  Not only because it met all of my requirements for products I purchase for food items (BPA, Phthalate, Lead, and PVC free!), but because I was  in need of a nice small container for my lunches as well as a nice sized and durable cloth napkin!  I was tired of going to the campus coffee shop and “borrowing” a paper plate and disposable napkins and forks/spoons every day for my snack or lunch.

One of my main challenges was that I constantly would lose of forget my lunch/snack bag.  I was grateful that this bag that came in the Snak Pak was smaller sized and could easily be folded so it would fit in my back pack with my heavy text books and other class materials.   This made one less thing for me to remember and that’s a good thing when I’m constantly thinking about exams during the day!

My Snak Pack filled and ready for me to put in my backpack for lunch yesterday!

No matter what I took for lunch the container or food cozy were able to be used.  Sandwiches and wraps were often in the food cozy, though I  had some tough time wrapping my large wraps in the cozy sometimes.  I would take my main course or a side in the stainless steal container.  Then all I needed was the napkin and a drink and grab some bamboo to-go silverware and I was done!  My favorite meal this week I packed in the Snak Pak was left over spaghetti in the stainless steal container, and 2 pieces of garlic bread in the food cozy!  Yummy!

My favorite thing to do was unfold the Food Kozy so that it would serve as a type of place mat on the table….kept my food clean while I was eating, and I didn’t have to look for or waste a plate for just eating my snack or lunch!  This would save me time, and also made it so I could eat anywhere, I did not have to go to the campus coffee shop anymore just to get a plate to eat.

The cloth napkin and Food Kozy make it very easy to make anywhere your “lunch” or “snack” area!

I do think that some re-usable silverware should be provided in the packs, but otherwise they have just about everything I need.  I really love how interesting and “different” the products look and they appeal greatly to college students as I have gotten many questions as to where I got my “lunch” box from!  SAPsDaDa had to be the bad guy here as he does not like hand washing and waiting for the food kozy’s to dry, but I think that they’re worth it!

I can see with just having this Snak Pack for this short time has already helped me, who was already “eco-friendly”, make even more green changes in my daily routine, and I know it can help your family too!  So for Earth Day Kids Konserve is not just giving away an awesome Snak Pack for one SAPsMaMa follower to win, but they are also offering a 20% off for everyone to purchase some awesome fun waste-free lunch kits!  Use coupon code “forearth” !  Want more?  Make a purchase of $65 or more and you will get a FREE snack pack!  Awesome deal, go check it out!

What SAPsMaMa LOVES about the Kids Konserve Snak Pack!

  • Free of BPA, Phthalates, Lead, and PVC!!!  This is a big yay!
  • Wonderful bright and bold colors in gender neutral or girly or boyish prints/colors!
  • Pretty much everything you need for a waste-free lunch or snack without any hassle
  • Food cozy and stainless steal container can be used for many purposes in lunches/snacks!
  • The Napkin is quite large and durable.
  • The food kozy serves double-purpose as a place-mat when you’re eating!
  • Perfect size to fit in my backpack
  • The bag is just big enough to hold everything I need for a lunch and isn’t too big.

Suggestions For Improvement: There’s Always Room for Improvement!

  • It would be great if the bag came with a strap so if I wanted to I could easily carry it around if I did not wish to put it in my back pack one day.
  • Both the lunch and snak pak I feel should include reusable silverware of some form so it can fully make the kit “waste free”!
  • It would be great if you could come out with a “food cozy” shaped specifically for wraps or long subs and those types of foods.
  • Hubby didn’t enjoy washing the Food Kozy’s so much, not sure what can be done there though.

Kids Konserve for the Earth

Kids Konserve Eco-Resolutions for 2011 was about adopting the 5th ‘R’ – REMEMBER – into our daily life. Let’s REMEMBER on this Earth Day 2011.

Each year on this day thousands of people celebrate the Earth and what it means not only to them, but to the human race as a whole. Others use this day to bring the public’s attention to Earth and the effects our lifestyle is having on the planet. This day is a great day to spend time with your children and teach them more about the environment around them.  Our children are the leaders of the future. It is important that they learn the importance of the environment now, instead of waiting until they have grown.  (http://earthday2011.net/)

Kids Konserve offers a product; MOST importantly Kids Konserve is a message.  Kids Konserve spreads the word about the importance of REUSE.  The company recently celebrated their 2nd Anniversary and they are driven by the amazing response they have received and warmhearted by the impact that they are making. Kids Konserve continues to grow and become more and more meaningful.

  • Kids Konserve products are Non-Toxic, Non-Leaching, BPA, PVC, Phthalate, and Lead-free!
  • Kids Konserve raises awareness and educates about the importance of REUSE.
  • Kids Konserve is in local schools across the Nation and Internationally reducing lunchtime trash and giving a percentage of every sale back to that school.
  • Kids Konserve is Parent Tested Parent Approved (PTPA).
Other Great Kids Konserve Products I love:

A Party Pack!  Not only everything you need for a party or get-together, but nice cotton travel bags too, and made from recycled yogurt containers!
