Your Gather Lunchbox can be used to transport your lunch or snacks just about anywhere. Use it for work, school, play, tailgate parties, picnics or just about anywhere you need access to food.
Your Gather Lunchbox can be placed in the refrigerator to keep food; however, we do not recommend placing it in the freezer. Plastics should never be used in a microwave oven. Please do not place your Gather Lunchbox in the microwave or near any other heat source.
Your Gather Lunchbox is made primarily of #5 virgin Polypropylene, which is considered a food-safe plastic. All materials used in the Gather lunchbox are BPA, phthalate and paraben-free.
Your Gather Lunchbox was conceived of, designed and made in the United States. Gather is based in Oakland, California and when we initially came up with the idea for the Gather Lunchbox, it was important to us as a company to make our product in the United States. Our manufacturer is located in Union City, CA, just a few miles to the south of Oakland, CA.
At Gather, we are very environmentally conscious and are constantly looking for ways to help reduce our impact on the planet. We created a lunchbox out of food-safe plastic that would eliminate the need for plastic baggies and other one-time-use products. It is one of our primary goals as a company to help eliminate unnecessary waste. As such, our products are minimally packaged. When you receive your lunchbox, it will include a small insert card inside with use and care instructions. The only packaging on the outside is a simple “belly band” wrapped around the midsection of the box. Both items are fully recyclable. Your Gather Lunchbox will be packaged in a corrugated box and wrapped in tissue paper, both of which are recyclable. We do not use plastic peanuts or air-filled plastic pouches for shipping.
Where possible, it is a priority for us to try to source our materials from like-minded companies and from companies that are women and/or minority owned.
Your Gather Lunchbox is approximately 11 ¼” long (13” with the handle extended), 8” wide, and 2 ¼” tall. It weighs approximately 1.2 pounds.
Care & Caution
A lot of design thought was put into the Gather Lunchbox to ensure that clean-up is as easy as possible. The inner compartments have rounded corners so you won’t be left trying to get peanut butter out of 90 degree corners. You can place the lid and base on the upper rack of a dishwasher, but the easiest way to clean it is by hand with some mild dish soap and a non-abrasive sponge. A soft bottle brush is also fine to use to clean the interior compartments. We don’t recommend cleaning with anything abrasive as the outside of the box has a high gloss finish and the inside of the box has a beautiful satin finish.
While your Gather Lunchbox has a perimeter gasket seal which should prevent most leaks from traveling outside the box, we do not recommend placing liquids in any of the compartments, unless they are sealed in individual containers.
When not in use, we recommend storing your Gather Lunchbox in a clean, dry place away from sunlight and any other heat sources.
Warranties & Returns
Gather offers a 3-month limited warranty on the purchase of Gather Lunchboxes made at www.gatheressentials.com and from authorized retailers, with proof of purchase. This warranty covers any manufacturer defects which prohibit the box from performing in a usual way. It does not cover any marring of the finish caused by misuse of the lunchbox. To report a claim, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with proof of purchase, reason for your claim, and pictures of the lunchbox. Gather reserves the right to request that the product be sent to our office for additional review and to verify the claim. If necessary, all shipping labels will be provided by Gather.
Gather will review all cases individually. In the event that Gather deems a replacement is necessary, we will replace the product with the same style and size, but not necessarily the same color.
Gather’s limited 3-month warranty does not cover any issues due to improper use, normal wear and tear, or loss/theft of the lunchbox.
