Why is the Goodbyn lunchbox made out of plastic? Is it safe?

Goodbyn lunchboxes are made out of plastic to keep your lunch safe, sealed, and unharmed on their journey to school or work. The hard plastic shell ensures that food returning from school or work will come back in one piece! Goodbyn food containers are made from recyclable food-safe plastics: #5 polypropylene (lunchbox and bottle lid) and #2 high-density polyethylene (bottle). They are approved by the FDA, are the most benign of all plastics on the market, and are BPA and phthalate-free. Goodbyn products comply with CPSIA standards (US), EN71 standards (Europe), and also comply with all Australia & New Zealand standards for direct/indirect food contact and child safety. 


Can I wash the Goodbyn lunchbox in the dishwasher? What about the stickers?

Yes. All Goodbyn lunchboxes are top-drawer dishwasher-safe (140°F). The stickers are specially engineered by Goodbyn to also be top-drawer dishwasher-safe. The stickers are made of (#5) polypropylene, and you can use them on any dishwasher-safe containers. 


Can I freeze the Goodbyn lunchbox? How can I keep my Goodbyn lunchbox cold?

Yes, the Goodbyn lunchbox is freezer-safe. We recommend making your lunch the night before and putting it in the fridge overnight to keep it cool on its way to school. You can also utilize a coldpack in the two larger compartments if you like. 


Can I put soups in my Goodbyn lunchbox? 

No. While the Goodbyn does a good job of transporting left-overs, hummus, dip and thick sauces, we don't recommend sending soups in it, it might seep out. 


Is the Goodbyn lunchbox microwaveable?

The lunchbox is microwaveable, however we do not recommend heating food in any plastics in the microwave.


Where does my Goodbyn lunchbox come from?

Goodbyn is an international brand, sold in over 25 countries. Our goal has always been to solve the problem of trash created by one-time-use packaging and to offer our products at the most affordable price, to as many as possible. Our products are made responsibly in China. We work with well established factories that maintain high-safety standards and are working towards sustainable practices. We import forecasted amounts for sale domestically and we ship on demand amounts directly to our distributors in other countries - thereby actually lessening the carbon footprint and costs that exporting from the states would create. 


What age is the Goodbyn lunchbox intended for?

Goodbyn lunchboxes are great for all ages! We originally set out to design a lunchbox for grades K-4, but anyone can most certainly carry a Goodbyn! We developed the opening and closing pressures to be appropriate for ages 5 and up.
