Rebox

A foldable and washfree lunchbox

Overview

Rebox is a foldable, wash-free and smart reusable lunchbox that solves the conflict between environmental friendliness and convenience.

Background

Food containers and packaging are among the major sources of wastes reaching the landfills. While governments and environmental organizations are trying hard to encourage people to use reusable lunchbox, most citizens, especially students and office workers, are still reluctant to switch away from disposable lunchbox.

In fact, there is always a struggle between reusable lunchbox and disposable lunchbox. Reusable lunch box is green but full of troubles; disposable lunch box is convenient but harmful to the earth. This could lead to serious problems because it introduces a dilemma between environmental protection and product usability.

Rebox can be folded into one fifth of its original volume, making it even smaller than a typical water bottle.

After opening the lid, a piece of biodegradable greaseproof paper can be put inside the box so that the food is not in contact with the container.

The paper is super compressable and only stays in landfills for a few weeks, minimizing the carbon footprint while achieving its wash-free feature.
