Our journey began with a dream. Samantha Edwards, our founder, was inspired by the unwavering dedication of her Japanese mother, Harumi, to her family's health and well-being. Despite living in Delaware, America, Harumi always ensured that her children had the freshest, most nutritious meals packed with love and care. She insisted on preparing meals at home, not merely for health reasons, but also to minimize the family's carbon footprint by avoiding the unnecessary waste associated with take-out meals.
One day, during a trip to Japan to visit relatives, Samantha was introduced to the concept of bento lunchboxes. She was fascinated by these compact, practical, and well-designed boxes, a stark contrast to the plastic bags and wasteful packaging she saw back home. Struck by this cultural difference, Samantha realized the potential for such a product in America - thus sparking the birth of Lunchbox-store.com.
At Lunchbox-store.com, we aim to inspire better choices for on-the-go meals. We support individuals who wish to enjoy healthy meals and snacks while minimizing their reliance on single-use plastic packaging. Our products offer an attractive and environmentally-friendly alternative to conventional lunch packaging, ultimately contributing to a positive lifestyle change.
