Green Living – Go Waste Free With U Konserve

U Konserve Waste Free Lunches

Reducing waste is an extremely important challenge in today’s world.

U-Konserve raises up to the challenge with a range of waste free lunch solutions for adults which are also ideal for lunches, picnics, travel and left overs.

The U-Konserve range is made by the people behind Kids Konserve and uses the same great fabrics (including Petspun #1 made from recycled plastic bottles and recycled cotton) and high quality #304 (18/8) food-grade stainless steel.

Both U-Konserve and Kids Konserve set themselves apart from other waste-free lunch systems in a number of ways:

Non-Toxic: The complete range is made from the safest, non-leaching, non-toxic, BPA, PVC, phthalate, and lead-free materials – a mouthful, but true! Lead, BPA, PVC, and phthalates are substances that are known to be harmful to our bodies with repeated exposure.

Stainless Steel: They offer a wide range of 304 food grade stainless steel solutions as it is proven to be the safest material to house food in.

Product Line: Their products are what they call ‘eco-chic’, and are graphically appealing to kids and adults alike. The Kids Konserve range is designed to be fun, stylish, and easy for kids to use, while offering maximum convenience and flexibility for parents – all with the underlying aim of creating a Zero Waste Lunch. U-Konserve is designed for adults.

Their Ethics

Kids Konserve was founded on the belief that we can affect our environment and health by the choices we make as consumers. To that end, they not only provide a range of products that embraces this philosophy, but also strive to impart the values of sustainability and health into the way they run their business.

They offer non-toxic, safe products that undergo strict quality control and are tested by a CPSIA-accredited lab. The Consumer Public Safety Information Act (CPSIA) was signed into law in August 2008. The law expands the role of the U.S. Consumer Public Safety Commission (CPSC) and institutes new testing and documentation requirements. The law increases the restrictions on acceptable levels of lead and phthalates, particularly in children’s products. Kids Konserve exceeds CPSIA standards, as all products are lead-free and phthalate-free.

They offer high-quality, long-lasting products that promote sustainability and health, and inherently strive to reduce the millions of tons of waste associated with single-serving packaged foods and plastic bottles. They strive to use recycled materials as much as possible, and many of their products are recyclable.

They offer products that are responsibly made in China, India and Taiwan in facilities that are working toward green practices, and are supportive of their mission to reduce waste. Independent agencies audit the working conditions and environmental impact to ensure that the facilities adhere to fair and safe labour practices and environmental standards.

All their products meet the standards of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The FDA is responsible for ensuring safety of all food packaging and food contact substances. Through the Centre for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (CFSAN), the FDA regulates food contact materials to ensure they are safe for intended use.

U-Konserve and Kids Konserve are not only great to help you go waste free but they also help you save money when compared with store bought individual lunch supplies.
