Lunch in style with our wide range of reusable food storage solutions. Everything from Abeego beeswax food wrap to a stainless steel lunch box. All designed with the planet in mind. Helping you get rid of the need for single-use plastic.
Whatever your food storage needs.

We’ve compiled some of the best environmentally friendly products out there with ethical credentials to match.
To help get you started here are our best buys and why we love them.
1. Abeego wax wrap.
At Danuworld we absolutely love the natural, breathable, compostable food wraps from Abeego. Made from certified organic cotton and hemp infused with pure beeswax, tree resin and organic jojoba oil, these great smelling wraps will replace all your cling film, tin foil and plastic sandwich bag needs in one.
Abeego is the perfect alternative to parchment paper for cheese (which hates cling wrap as it needs to breathe), you can even take it with you to the deli counter. It’s also ideal for sandwiches, baked goods, fresh fruit and veg or covering leftovers. Abeego is flexible and slightly adhesive, easily moulded around bowls, or folded into neat packets, and happy to be kept in the fridge or freezer. Pretty much the only thing you can’t wrap with Abeego is raw meat. For that, you are much better off with stainless steel.
To clean simply use cool water and a biodegradable soap or dish soap and air dry.
Designed with nature in mind, Abeego wraps let food breathe keeping it fresher for longer. And just as it is inspired by nature, so it will return to nature. Unlike aluminium foil or Ziploc bags, when wraps reach the end of their life, a year or longer with proper care, just pop them on the compost pile.
Abeego as a brand has some amazing ethics.
The mixed pack is a great starter set, including three Abeego flats. So why not replace cling wrap and plastic baggies today with organic cotton fabric, beeswax, resin and jojoba oil. Reduce your waste and enjoy fresher food

3. Made Sustained stacking round lunch box set
As food storage containers go these are some of the best. This set of three stainless steel lunchboxes have silicone lids meaning they are leakproof and great for wet lunches such as rice or salads but also for keeping leftovers fresh and reducing waste. This sustainable lunchbox set is virtually indestructible so perfect for packing kid’s lunches.
They are dishwasher safe, toxin-free and freezer friendly. Meaning if you are really organised you can batch cook your lunches and just grab one from the freezer. As they’re stainless steel you can even put them in the oven but not the microwave. They are also great for baby food and a lot less breakable than glass jars.
Not quite a tiffin but we think as good as. The large container is enough for a good-sized portion, the medium container is perfect for a healthy side and the small 150ml tub is great for packing treats and snacks.

4. U-Konserve Insulated Food Jar
We happen to live in a country where sandwiches, however varied and delicious are not always what you fancy for lunch. And where picking up your tiffin from the local restaurant is far from common.
That’s where the U-Konserve insulated food Jar comes in. Similar to a thermos, insulated food storage vastly increases your options for lunch boxes and picnics. The double wall design means it remains cool to touch and stays moisture free. Being stainless steel it will never taint your food, it has a leak-proof silicone seal, and keeps food hot or cold for at least four hours. A thermal lunch box means you can have homemade soup, stew, or noodles wherever you are.
U-Konserve also makes a great Bento box style stainless steel lunch box with a removable divider, great for laptop lunches.
