When it comes to kids’ lunches and convenience, I wished for a long time for some kind of reusable juice box. I mean, it’s kind of hard to beat juice boxes–they’re the perfect serving size, especially younger kids, and for what seems to be the six-minute lunch break that my kids claimed to have had in elementary school. (Or maybe that was just an excuse for not finishing the broccoli?)
If you’ve ever felt any eco-guilt about juice boxes, or would like to save money eliminating more single-serving snack products for school lunches, you have to check out the Drink in the Box reusable juice boxes from Precidio Design, which I discovered online back in 2015.
They’re now in their third generation, with lots of new features and accessories and I’m still a fan.

With more than 4 billion hard-to-recycle juice boxes a year reportedly hitting the trash, the Drink in the Box (formerly Juice in the Box) is a nice earth-friendly alternative and money saver.
Users love that it’s spill-proof, and definitely squirt proof. But beyond that, if you or your kids have a favorite drink that doesn’t come in handy juice box form–or you save money by buying Costco Lemonade in bulk like we do–I love that you can now make it a juice box. Just like magic.
You can even add a cute animal straw “fun top” top should your child want to drink out of a panda head or unicorn head.

I will say that while it’s top rack dishwasher-safe, I still try to hand wash my plastic stuff, and only occasionally give it a full-cycle spin. Also, the retail site no longer describes Tritan plastic (the same kind used in Nalgene or CamelBak bottles) as “chemical-free,” specifying that it is BPA- and phthalate-free.
Very cool product. I’d get two.
