Reusable Food Bags and Containers

You’ve made it clear that it’s really important for you to reduce your consumption of single-use plastics and find reusable alternatives. We know you want to reduce waste by using products multiple times; and once those products are past their best, you want them to be recyclable or, even better, easily biodegradable or compostable.

Check out our range of ‘greener’ options for food storage, packed lunches and everyday shopping. We’ve tracked down reusable food wraps mmade from organic cotton, beeswax and organic jojoba oil that can be used again and again and composted at the end of their life. We’ve discovered reusable food storage bags made from recyclable silicone, and a huge range of durable food storage boxes, including a special range from Lock & Lock that are produced from plastic off-cuts in order to reduce waste. We also have a range of reusable shopping bags, from small ones for fruit and veggies that are so much stronger than the paper bags the supermarkets are switching to in their fruit and veg aisles to larger versions for getting your whole shop home, as well as proper ‘bags for life’, some of which even pack down to pocket-sized to make them really easy to carry with you.

Eco-Friendly Products

Now more than ever, we’re increasingly aware of the environmental need to reduce, reuse and recycle, especially where plastic is concerned. The ‘Blue Planet effect’ reminded us just how important it is to consider the impact of what we buy, how long it can be used for and what happens to it once we’re done with it.

Our buyers have sought out lots of eco-friendly products that look lovely and do their job without compromise. So next time you come to replace kitchen or cleaning essentials, like sandwich bags, coffee capsules and daily cleaning sprays, why not try our Bee’s Wrap Reusable Food Wraps, Eden Project Biodegradable Coffee capsules or ECOlogical cleaning range?

We know that plastic has its place, and there are times when no other material is quite as effective. But choosing washable, reusable and sustainable plastics rather than single-use options helps reduce waste; and, if you do choose to replace your faithful old plastic containers, you can be sure we’ve chosen fantastic eco-friendly storage solutions that will far outlast cheaper ‘throwaway’ versions. Both Lock & Lock and Wham Bam now offer storage solutions, from 470ml to 62L, all made from recycled plastic.

You can learn more about how you can reuse, replace and recycle with Lakeland on our blog post: The Eco-friendly Swap Shop. While we know we can’t get rid of waste completely, we hope we can all do our bit to go green – one eco-friendly, reusable coffee cup at a time!
