Stainless steel lunch boxes leave a small footprint on the earth and look great while doing so. Seriously, how beautiful are those things? What? You say you have a salad and want to stay chilled? Although they aren't the best as keeping your lunch time goods insulated, we've run across a super smart idea that's sure to have you keeping your cool... or your hot, but that just doesn't have the same ring to it.

Maya over at Maya Made has been using stainless steel for her children's lunches for several years now, but was growing tired of soggy ice packs or only sending room temperature food. So like any mother on the night before school started, she formulated a plan.

After going through a long list of materials and ideas, she came up with the perfect combination of repurposed insulating goods and style. By using wool, or rather an old army blanket, she was able to create this insulating case that not only keeps the cool temperatures in, but it also looks great while doing it.

So next time you're at the military surplus store, make sure to pick up an extra blanket or two to transform into your own carriers to keep things safe and sound. See more about the process at Maya Made.

Thanks Maya!
