DRINK IN THE BOX
With the help of a sleek, leak-proof Drink in the Box – the large size is a convenient 350ml – you can have water with you when you’re out on-the-go (an absolute must for Aussie summers). The convenient rectangular shape of the Drink in the Box means it’s easy to slip into your handbag, slide into a school lunchbox or cooler bag or slot into your car’s cup holder, and you won’t need to strain to squeeze rectangular ice cubes inside it – is there anything more annoying?! We love filling ours with water and fresh summer fruits for the perfect alternative to soft drink or cordial.

WRAP’D
We love packing wraps for school and summer picnics, but we hate how much waste they create – that’s why we are so excited about Wrap’d! It has four silicone sides that connect at the top, helping to keep your wrap in one piece on the go. Simply fold down each side as you enjoy your delicious wrap, and your Wrap’d will catch any scraps to be polished off later! The high-grade, BPA-free silicone stores your wrap perfectly – whether it’s thrown into your handbag or child’s backpack – and also acts as a hygiene barrier between your hands and your food, keeping your lunch nice and fresh.
