Does your banana get to its destination all squished and unpalatable? Does your apple or pear get bruised in transit? Is your kiwi or plum mushed all over the rest of your lunch? These were my husband Richard's complaints until we found Banana Guard! Banana Guard is "a proudly Canadian company from production right through to distribution." 3 emergency-room doctors, frustrated by the appearance of their fruit created the Banana Guard to “prevent banana trauma during transportation!” Later on, they designed the Froot Guard for fruit like apples, peaches and pears, and the Froot Case, fitting plums and kiwis. The S'wich Guard will soon be available to protect your sandwich from home to lunch.
The banana-shaped case claims to fit the vast majority of banana shapes, and indeed, since we've been using the Banana Guard we haven't had a banana that didn't fit! The case is made with holes to allow the fruit to breathe and not ripen prematurely, is hinged and shuts with 3 clasps. The container is very sturdy - as our 17-month old son can attest!
All of Banana Guard's products are made of FDA approved recyclable plastic, BPA-FREE and made in Canada. They are dishwasher safe and a great way to use reusable lunch containers, thereby reducing the amount of food container waste. And, they're available in 6 fun colours! You can purchase any of their products online, or at a variety of retailers around the world.
Banana Guard is giving one lucky Glimpse reader a container in a colour of their choice. Please visit Banana Guard and comment on which container and colour you would choose.
