About the company:
The founder of Drink in the Box, Marc, became aware of the extremely high levels of sugar in disposable juice boxes. Many of the most trusted brands had 24 to 28 grams of sugar in one juice box (7 tsp)! Since his kids were getting 2 with lunch and snack as they went to school, he did the math and realized that’s more than 30 pounds/13 Kg. of sugar a year from this source alone. This doesn’t even count the reasons for dropping disposables considering the quality of the juice, lack of fibre and what they do to landfills since they take over 300 years to biodegrade…
And so the idea to create a better way to send drinks to school was realized and Drink in the Box was born. This then led to our redesigning many of our most popular housewares we count on every day with Snack in the Box and Multi Flask.
About the product(s):
Why Drink in the Box?
When Precidio Design set out to make the ultimate travel drink box, we knew details mattered.
- It had to be really convenient, meaning it needed to travel well and could fit into lunch boxes and lunch bags easily.
- We knew that it had to be made of highest quality of materials that are safe and durable so that it could be used by kids, and reused.
- We knew it couldn’t make kids lunches soggy or splash on their clothes, so no leaks.
- We knew the straw had to be attached to not be lost.
- We care about our workers, so we make sure our factories are safe for their employees, fair, and fully audited.
The Drink in the Box is great for those 3+ – especially the more “mature” crowd. Who wouldn’t want their very own drink box in their office cubicle?
It is made from BPA, BPS and Phthalates free material called TRITAN™. This is a premiere, American-made material used heavily by quality housewares companies and medical products industry. Tritan™ is durable, dishwasher safe (top shelf only), and will not leach any chemicals into the liquids you and your family drink.
Drink in the Box is a very neat idea. I think the novelty of the shape and fact it’s meant to resemble a juice box will be a huge hit with kids, and kids-at-heart. It did take me a second to figure out how to work it, but once you have figure it out, it’s a breeze.
I enjoy that it’s spill-proof when closed, but you must make sure the lid closes properly as it’ll leave a mess in your lunch box.
All in all, it’s a great product that, in my opinion, trumps the large and bulky water bottles that you can buy (for example, the Contigo ones Costco sells). I simply can’t imagine a kindergartner pulling one of those large bottles out of their lunch box – neither can I see an elderly couple pack one in their picnic basket. Different uses, I suppose. That what I enjoy about Drink in the Box, it’s versatile because of its size.
