Why People Love FlatBox

Washing Machine

Machine Washable

FlatBox is a 100% machine-washable neoprene lunch box. It's quick and easy to clean - just pop it in the washing machine and hang it to dry. Because traditional lunch boxes can’t be cleaned properly, they accumulate hazardous bacteria. Washing your FlatBox kills bacteria that may be hiding in your lunch box, which can lead to foodborne illness.


Germ/Bacteria Free

Washing your FlatBox will eliminate 99.9% of harmful germs, bacteria and food allergens. Now your lunch can be packed in a clean, healthy environment which is also perfect for those with food allergy concerns.


Turns Into a Placemat

FlatBox patented design allows you to easily convert the lunch box into a placemat. The steps are easy. Just unzip the four sides and immediately create a clean eating surface for your food. The award‑winning design creates a safe, clean space to eat lunch anywhere, anytime.

Hands around a heart


FlatBox is the perfect lunch box for people with food allergies. Because it converts into a placemat, & is machine washable, it provides a clean, safe, allergen-free surface - anywhere - for those with food allergies.


Heavily Insulated

FlatBox ensures your food stays fresh and tasty. With three layers of insulation, FlatBox keeps food warm or cold, depending on your needs. Take FlatBox everywhere you go for food that isn’t just fresh, but germ-free.



Stop using plastic bags to pack your lunch. Instead, use FlatBox. The multi-purpose lunch box is PVC and BPA-free. It is also durable, easy to clean, lightweight, and long-lasting. These lunch boxes are made from neoprene–a synthetic rubber–to provide extra durability for school, work, or travel.

Desks: Dirtier than toilet seats

Before you eat lunch at your keyboard, consider this: The average desk has 400 times more bacteria than a toilet seat. The last time you wiped down your desk and shook crumbs from your keyboard was — yep, a year ago. That’s not good news if you’re one of the 83 percent of Americans who eat at their desks, according to a recent survey – desks and all the surfaces can get pretty funky.
