Back To School Bestsellers
If you’ve been on the hunt for eco-friendly, non-toxic and reusable snack bags, lunch boxes that truly don’t smell and no-spill drink bottles, you’re going to want to check out our back to school bestsellers.
The battle of the backpack can be arduous, messy and a breaking point for a lot of parents. From crumpled homework assignments to muddy shoes to pockets filled with pencil shavings, we know firsthand just how disrupted a school bag eco-system can get. We also know that many mainstream lunch boxes and drink bottles can and will quickly add sticky, slimy and smelly to that equation.
In an effort to find sanity saving food storage products, we set out on a mission knowing that they’d also need to be eco-friendly, non-toxic and sustainably produced. Thanks to brands like STATE Bags, Fluf, Light + Nine, Stasher, Modern-Twist, We Might Be Tiny, Re-Play, Thinkbaby and Marcus & Marcus, we were able to swap single use plastic baggies for reusable silicone pouches, mold-prone lunch boxes for wipeable wonders and water bottles that truly don’t leak. We are thrilled to report that while our children’s backpacks still have questionable moments, food and drinks are not the culprits anymore!
To help you get all the gear your need for an extra great first day of school (or safer and more sustainable home life,) we’ve compiled a list of our bestsellers below.
Equipped with organizational zip pockets, slip pockets, and pen holders, STATE Bags are chic, fun and practical. For every STATE bag sold, one is donated to a child in need (it’s also packed full of school essentials to boot).
Made of GOTS Certified Organic Cotton canvas and lined with durable food-safe lining, these machine-washable Fluf lunch bags are adored by kids for their funky designs and are free of nasties like PFCs, BPA, BPS, Phthalates and Lead.

Made of EVA and silicone, Light + Nine’s easy to clean and non-toxic lunchbox can be personalized by your mini me using their super cute patches.
These four brands have managed to turn food-grade silicone into miracle products. From storage containers to storage bags, the wonders of silicone are infinite. Completely non-toxic, they are freezer safe, dishwasher safe, microwave safe and offer an eco-friendly and safe alternative to single use plastics or PET plastic containers.
Staying hydrated throughout the day is one of the most important things a child needs to do and now it just got easier thanks to these safe and eco-friendly plastic options from Re-Play and Thinkbaby. Re-Play uses recycled milk jugs to make their incredible no spill sippy cup, while Thinkbaby is made from No.5 plastic (which won’t leach chemicals and is recyclable) as well as food-grade silicone.
