Depending on where you are in the country, the current weather might feel like a blessing from the heavens after the last few months. This has been a pretty nasty winter for a lot of people. 2019’s Polar Vortex hit many cities hard, and in a lot of regions, it’s still freezing! With that being said, things are looking up. Spring has officially arrived, the sun will start showing its face more, and before we know it, the weather will be warm, pleasant and wonderful.
This is the time of the year where it’s good to start making preparations for the following seasons. Spring is the prelude to summer, and you don’t want to spend that valuable time cleaning, dealing with health issues, or cooped up inside!
As it turns out, this makes spring a perfect season for new lunch box shopping, and of course, we’d be remiss not to throw our own neoprene lunch bag into the running. FlatBox is a lunch bag that will serve you and your children faithfully for years, protecting them from germs, allergens, and being extremely easy to wash due to its machine-friendly components!
Here are some reasons why it’s the perfect time to get your own FlatBox if you haven’t yet ordered one.
Getting the Most Out of Spring Cleaning
While there’s no official rule that says you need to do a comprehensive deep clean when spring hits, it’s tradition for many businesses and families to use the spring months as an opportunity to do just that. “Spring cleaning” is a term that’s known by pretty much everyone, even if they don’t practice it, and most people have their own interpretations of what it entails.
We see spring cleaning as an opportunity to clear out the excess in your life. While a thorough deep clean of the house is definitely a good idea, it also creates the perfect context for you to reorganize, get rid of old junk, and consider better alternatives to items that are no longer giving you value.
Do you have an archaic lunch box that you or your children have been using for years now? In your spring cleaning regimen, this will likely be on your list. After all, you do want your lunch bag to be clean, and they can get pretty nasty if they go days, weeks, months, or (heaven forbid) years without a good scrubbing job.
Maybe this year you can change the formula. Your lunch box has seen enough use. You’ve cleaned it too many times. You don’t want to run it under the sink and scrub it down anymore. Why not just spring for a new one? FlatBox is machine-washable, making it an easy and viable option for continuous cleaning. Maybe, just maybe, it’s time to be out with the old and in with the new!
Spring Season Is Allergy Hell
If you’re reading this, you may be among the lucky few who won the genetic lottery of not having any discernible allergies. But for the rest of us, they can be annoying and frustrating, and at no point during the year are they worse than in spring and summer!
Of course, everyone has different allergies, so it’s not like spring is going to be a whole lot worse for you if you’re allergic to, say, cat dander. But seasonal allergies are extremely common among the general populace, and millions of people start sniffling and sneezing when the flowers begin to bloom.
If you want to avoid allergen exposure during your meals, there’s no better option than the FlatBox.
The reasons for this are twofold:
- Machine Washable: First off, the FlatBox is 100% machine washable, as we mentioned above. In other words, FlatBox is just easier to clean on a regular basis. You could throw it in the wash in between every single use if you wanted, and the neoprene material, along with the comprehensive wash that machines provide, ensure that it comes out of the wash brand new. On average, FlatBoxes tend to be more clean than other alternatives, limiting the amount of germs and allergens that could stow away with your lunch.
- Instant Placemat: In theory, FlatBox isn’t strictly cleaner than any other lunch box if they’ve both been completely washed beforehand. However, FlatBox does have one edge over other competitors in terms of cleanliness, and that is its placemat functionality. FlatBox can instantly unzip into a square-shaped placemat, allowing a clean space for you to lay out your food. The alternatives are keeping your food in the bag, which is inconvenient, or placing it on the ground or table, which is a quick path to germs.
Warm Seasons Need Cold Lunch Bags
Another great reason to pick up a FlatBox during the spring season is because it’s a great lunch box to have if you want to insulate your food! FlatBox is a good insulator on its own, and we also sell special products that will help to keep your food cool.
FlatBox is effective at insulating your food because of its neoprene material, which has three layers of insulation that help to keep your food cold (or warm) depending on your needs.
Still not convinced? If you want a guarantee that your food will stay nice and cool, you can also pick up our special ice packs, which are specifically designed to work with FlatBox. These cold little tiles fit perfectly into a FlatBox and will ensure that the sun doesn’t have its way with your cold lunch.
Spring Is a Time of Bright Colors
Okay, so this reason is a little bit more superficial than the last few, but when you think of Spring, what’s one of the first things that comes to mind? For most people, it’s flowers! And flowers, of course, are ripe with beautiful, bright colors. What better way to embrace the spring than to become colorful and lively yourself? It’s time to cast away that bleak black lunch box you’ve been using, and go to school or work with something truly vibrant.
If this is right up your alley, you’re in luck — FlatBox has several different color combinations that are right at home with the Spring season,
Do you want a bold Cyan that’s accented with bright pink? What about a magenta and lime green combination that evokes the look of watermelon? We have plenty of options for you to choose from! Not only that, but FlatBox comes in four different distinct styles, each one having its own unique purpose. You can choose between color, size, width, and even opt for a FlatBox that has its own drink holder.
