Comments Off on Prepd Pack may be the coolest lunchbox ever created

Prepd is a new take on the humble lunch box that makes taking lunch to work easier and more enjoyable. The benefits of taking your lunch to work include having closer control of what you eat, helping you safe money, reducing packaging waste. However, most people find it difficult and inconvenient, so Chris Place and Will Matters created a new type of lunchbox that works with a smart app to make things much easier and more enjoyable. Each pack includes several separate compartments, includes silverware and is totally spill-proof, so it can easily be carried in a messenger bag, purse or backpack. Over 4200 backers have already got behind the idea to help bring the new system of preparation and transportation to life, and you can too. + Prepd Pack on Kickstarter
