73 Back-to-School Lunch Boxes

From Sustainable Meal Containers to Reinforced Snack Packs

— August 21, 2012 — Eco
These back-to-school Lunch Boxes are no ordinary lunch box endeavour. With ornate and intricate designed food, incredible ideas and originality and an overall theme of whimsy, these lunch boxes are extraordinary.

As the students head back to school come September, lunch boxes become a necessity once again. Gone are the days of eating at home throughout the day (for the most part). Instead, we look ahead to what's packable, easy to carry and won't spill. These inventive lunch boxes offer awesome ideas and great creativity that will encourage you to not only remember to pack your lunchbox and take it with you, but to also do something awesome with it.

From various bento box creations to the traditional sandwich, there's an interesting lunch idea to spark anyone's imagination.
