The metal inner plate is designed to be removed for easy cleaning. Periodically, we would recommend pulling the silicone out of the insert to make sure that it is clean as well.
The Why was sort of simple. We were annoyed by the lunch containers on the market. They either looked completely medicinal or lacked enough functionality to really make them useful.
When we designed the container, we wanted it to be highly sustainable. From the moment you first hold the container, you'll understand the strength of the materials used. Second, we were very interested in solving the problem of food migrating from one area to the other. Most folks don't really like their food mixing, we are no different.
Next, we wanted to embed the fork and spoon in such a way that they were both sanitary and secure. Plus the clear top makes it obvious that they are there when you arrive.
Since our company's inception, we have been focused on being socially responsible. For us this means three things:
- Create safe products
- Have the least impact possible on the environment in the creation, packaging, usage, and disposal of product possible.
- Connect to non-profit organizations engaged in activities that help the world become a safer, healthier place
Over the last 7+ years, we have provided products for various fundraisers for diabetes, child abuse, autism, and cancer organizations, and have provided direct aid to catastrophes such as the Texas fires and Haiti. In addition, we have been proud donors to Texas4000, Healthy Child Healthy World, Environmental Working Group, and St. Jude.
Our program evolved, and through a little bit of "thinking," Thinksocial was created. We came up with Thinksocial as a way to empower consumers to choose which non-profits they feel most connected to and want to monetarily support. We call it the democratization of social responsibility.
