    Why PlanetBox?

    • Easy – PlanetBox will serve as your guide for what and how much to pack. We’ve done the thinking for you. And now your morning routine just got a whole lot easier.
    • Eco – PlanetBox lunches create a whole lot less trash, which should help you sleep better knowing you’re doing your part to help the planet for future generations.
    • Safe – We take “non-toxic, non-leaching, safe from BPA, phthalates, and lead” very seriously – in fact, it’s why PlanetBox was designed! We don’t think you will find safer products on the market.
    • Built to last – This isn’t your childhood flimsy tin lunchbox. Our high quality stainless steel is warrantied for 5 years, and has been known to survive getting thrown off the school bus (not that we recommend that). For warranty queries please contact PlanetBox here.
    • Cost Effective – Why should you pay this much for a lunchbox? Because it’s cheaper to buy food in bulk and pack your own meal. Because your health is worth it. And because it’s an investment your family will use every single day for many years to come – over its lifetime, it will pay off in spades.
    • Healthy – Forget to pack some veggies? The empty compartment will remind you. Concerned about overeating? That won’t happen – PlanetBox is designed to hold sensible portions. So eat a rainbow of foods, and enjoy.
    • Great Design – hen something actually works well, it makes all the difference. We spent years studying and living how people use lunchboxes. We thoroughly thought through all the details, so you and your kids get the joy and ease of using a superbly designed product.
    • Stress Free Clean Up – Dishwasher safe? Heck yeah. Peanut butter left for a week? No problem – our stainless steel doesn’t retain yucky food odors or stains like those unfortunate plastic containers do.
    • Enjoyable – Think packing lunch is a dreaded chore? Our innovative lunchboxes actually make packing lunch fun and enjoyable – for your kids and yourself!
    • Customizable – Just change your magnets and you’ve got a fresh new lunchbox to suit your style. We have extra rocket and rainforest magnets you can purchase to mix up your box.

    Care Instructions:

    After removing magnets, wash your PlanetBox after each use – in the dishwasher, or with mild soap and water; and dry thoroughly. The silicone seals in Dippers are detachable for cleaning. Avoid harsh cleaners, scourers or wire brushes; and dishwashing soap containing chlorine bleach. Carry bag can be spot cleaned, or hand washed in warm soapy water; then air-dried.

    PlanetBox in not designed to hold liquids or for hot foods. Allow food to cool before placing in Dippers or PlanetBox. Do not use in microwave or oven.

    Our PlanetBox lunch kits also come in Red Rainforest, Blue Dinosaur and Red Dinosaur.

  • The Source Healthy Locks Rosemary & Nettle Shampoo Bar

    $9.95
    Quantity

    A wonderful revolution in hair care has arrived at The Source – shampoo bars!

    Our beautiful new shampoo bars are not only hand made from natural ingredients – they are completely packaging free! No plastic containers to dispose of – just ‘zero-waste’ shampoo.

    Imagine all the plastic shampoo bottles we can save!

    The Source Healthy Locks shampoo bar is made with Australian extra virgin Olive oil; organic Nettle; essential oils of Rosemary and Tea tree; and enriched with Castor bean oil.

    This shampoo is gentle, has a lovely aroma, lathers easily, and leaves hair clean & healthy – without hurting your pocket or the environment. It is Palm Oil free, contains no SLS or preservatives and has no artificial fragrances or dyes.

    Our shampoo bars are lovingly handmade and hand cut near Byron Bay.

    The Source Shampoo Bar will clean your hair and scalp gently without stripping natural oils. The natural ingredients, free of artificial perfumes, dyes and preservatives, are also perfect for people who are sensitive to harsh chemicals that are often found in shampoos. It is also animal cruelty free and is suitable for vegans.

    Castor oil benefits the scalp by improving blood circulation, moisturising dry, flaky skin and helps to strengthen the hair shaft by locking in moisture. The antioxidant-rich nutrients in nettle leaf nourish and soothe the scalp – nettle has also been traditionally used to promote hair growth. Rosemary is stimulating, antimicrobial, antifungal and traditionally used to prevent dandruff. While Tea tree is antiseptic, soothing and has been traditionally used to prevent head lice.

    Not just great for your hair but wonderful for ‘zero waste’ living too!

    How to Use:

    • Begin with wet hair
    • Rub the wet shampoo bar between your wet hands to create a nice lather
    • Using your fingers like a comb, smooth the lather along your hair
    • Gently massage into the scalp and hair as you would with a bottled shampoo
    • Work up a good lather
    • Rinse your hair
    • Repeat if desired
    • Leave the bar out to dry ready for its next use.

     

    Care Instructions:

    This handmade shampoo bar contains naturally occurring glycerine, so we recommend using a draining soap dish and keeping bars away from direct streams of water.

    When kept dry between uses, handmade soap lasts a long time.

    Handy Hint: Chop your bar in half, keep one half in the shower and the other half for travel, or to use when the other half is done.

    Note: Do not wash your cat with this bar, cats and tea tree oil aren’t a good match

    Ingredients:

    Australian Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Cold Pressed Coconut Oil, Water, Lye, Castor Bean Oil, Organic Nettle Powder, Essential Oils of Rosemary, Peppermint and Tea Tree.

    Each bar weighs approx. 165grams, but as it is hand-cut the shape and appearance may differ.

    By shopping with us you are helping to make a change by reducing the need for plastic, we can and will make a difference!
