Reusability adds value

Eating from one of our take-away lunch boxes conserves resources and reduces waste each time you have a meal, as they can be reused hundreds of times.

Tip, What we do

What makes our reusable lunch box sustainable? Firstly, the fact that the box and lid are produced in Switzerland. Secondly, they are made of high-quality, harmless material and contain no bisphenol A. As the LCA shows, a reusable lunch box is more eco-friendly than disposable packaging after just ten to twenty uses, depending on weight and material.

Reusable up to 200 times

Thanks to their high-quality material, our lunch boxes can be reused up to 200 times, making them far more eco-friendly than disposable tableware. We developed our aubergine-coloured take-away lunch boxes together with the reCIRCLE organisation. The reCIRCLE lunch boxes replace around 55,000 single-use plates every day – a careful use of resources.

Handy at home or on the go

The box and lid are dishwasher- and microwave-safe, giving them a long life and us long-term reusability. Furthermore, the box and lid can be stacked separately, making them perfect for at home or on the go.
Our tip: to prolong the life of the reusable lunch box, please avoid using metal knives, as they damage the material and render it unusable in the long run.

Reusable lunch box – just keep using it

  1. The most important step is your decision – reusable rather than disposable tableware! The eco-friendly reusable box keeps your food safe and warm and also reduces waste. Simply leave a deposit of CHF 10.

  2. You can return the reusable box anywhere in reCIRCLE’s Switzerland-wide network – or to us, of course. There’s no need to clean the lunch box before returning it to reclaim your deposit – simply ensure that the lid is on.

  3. So join with us to help preserve the environment.
