Elephant Box is based in Bridport, Dorset and was founded by 2 people who were fed up of throwing away rubbish plastic lunchboxes and decided to
provide an alternative.
Overconsumption is harming our planet and we wanted to be part of the solution. We decided to sell products that will help people be able to live a life with less waste. Things that wont break and won't need replacing, things that will help people to throw less stuff away.
Stainless steel is perfect for carrying food in. It won't leach any harmful chemicals into your food and it will never put any micro plastics into the water. Also, if it ever comes to the end of it's useful life you know that it can be 100% recycled over and over again and so need never end up in landfill.
Buy better, buy less.
The factories that we work with are in India, China and South Korea.
We have personally visited the Indian factories and are certain that the working conditions there are very good. We like these Indian factories because they are small and family run.
All other factories have all been audited by independent organisations to ensure that working conditions are good, that workers are paid well and on time and that conditions are safe.

The stainless steel industry is also improving constantly but will never be without it's flaws. We sell stainless steel because we believe that it is far and away much better than plastic alternatives. We believe that stainless steel does a far better job and is better for the environment.
However, it only works if our products are used to their full potential. They enable people to throw less stuff away. Using them in place of disposable takeaway cartons or cups or at the deli counter/butcher. It means that you can store left overs ready to take out with you - rather than them getting thrown in the bin. Our products will last a lifetime, perhaps longer, so will never need to be replaced - thereby negating the need to make/transport/dispose of more stuff. They will also never shed micro-plastics into the water.
