About Us

The idea behind Elephant Box got started around Joy's kitchen table.

We wanted to create a stainless steel lunchbox that could hold a hearty packed lunch. We also needed it to stand the test of time and the school bag! The problem of plastic was not hitting the news headlines at all a few years ago but we had a hunch that it wasn't just us that wanted an alternative to plastic food containers.

The Elephant Box design is inspired by the Indian latch tiffin.

In India, these tiffins are used over and over again for many many years. Crowdfunding meant we could develop a design and get it manufactured. This is our flagship product; The Elephant Box. We now have lots of different size lunch boxes and snack containers to choose from!

We started Elephant Box because we wanted to be a part of the solution to the problem of plastic

We will continue to provide plastic-free alternatives so that people have a choice of what to buy, and if they choose to, to live a life with less plastic.

We’ll keep building our range, bringing you new products that are useful.

We’ll be staying true to our principles and doing our bit to add our voice to the conversation about plastics.
