This innovative food storage container has a bamboo lid that doubles as a cutting board. The container is made from PLA, a bio plastic made from polyactic acid that is created with plant starches. The lid and container are held securely together with the matching band. Container is not suitable for liquids and cannot be used in the microwave. Through a partnership with 1% For The Planet, one percent of sales of this and all EcoSmart products will be donated to nonprofits dedicated to protecting the planet.
