The weather’s finally warming up, which means more trips to the park — and fun snack packing. We’ve found some great eco-friendly options for storing healthy food and drinks. Not only are they stylish and easy-to-use, they’re good for the planet too.

Check out our top picks below!

We love the new BPA-free Kid Kanteen Sippy Cups ($20 each, above) from Klean Kanteen. The 12 oz. mini bottles are made of food-grade stainless steel so apple juice tastes like, well, apple juice. Available in nine fun colors, they come with an adapter ($4) that works with Avent‘s patented sippy cup spout ($5 for two).

Want a dose of cute in your snack bag? Try the Japanese designed Polar Bear Gel Cool Bento Box ($14). BPA- and lead-free, the lid contains refrigerant gel that keeps your food fresh and cool for hours!

Reuseit’s reusable Snack ($6) and Sandwich ($9) bags are the perfect replacement for those waste-generating plastic baggies. You can tote around everything from chopped fruit and veggies to cereal and crackers. And since it comes with a strong Velcro closure, you don’t have to worry about annoying spills or crumbs.

Most kiddie snacks are easy-to-eat with your hands. But what if you want to serve your little one a meal? Try the Light My Fire Kids Sporks ($8 for three). They’re super cute and dishwasher-safe, so you can use them over and over again.

Now for something to pack it all in. One of our faves is the ACME Insulated Lunch Bag ($16). Made in the USA, the PVC- and lead-free mini totes come with a non-toxic freezer pack that will keep food cold and fresh for hours. They also come in a variety of cool colors including camo.
