The sleek aluminum Molabox is the lunchbox’s Macbook Air moment

Let’s for a moment ignore that horribly dystopian future depicted in the video above where humans have lobster-hands and are basically aqua-men and really focus on what the Molabox is, and why it’s so neat that people could literally make love to it.

Molabox is like if the tiffin box had its own Macbook Air moment. It comes with a collapsible silicone construction and a svelte metallic outer case that, when collapsed, makes it look like you’re carrying an SSD around with you. However, when you want to store food in the Molabox, it expands to its true height, giving you enough storage for a good meal, along with cutlery, and even a partition too, in case you want to carry two separate items… but most importantly, the Molabox doesn’t contain any disposable parts, or virgin plastics. The case is made from recycled aluminum, while the Molabox’s lid and reusable cutlery are entirely crafted from recycled plastic.

The idea is that for half of your work-day (post lunch, basically), the Molabox is going to be empty… so why must it occupy the same amount of space when there’s nothing inside it? The Molabox uses a nifty origami-inspired folding pattern, coupled with a food-grade BPA-free silicone to achieve its springy-ness. When needed, the Molabox is a full-sized lunchbox… and when empty, slide it into its aluminum sleeve and it’s roughly an inch in thickness, allowing you to carry it around in any bag with absolute ease. The Molabox comes with a leak-proof lid with its own reusable cutlery snapped into it. The tiffin box even has its own modular partition that you can place anywhere in the box, while the lid comes with its own air-valve for easy reheating. The Molabox is infinitely reusable (which means it won’t end up in the trash like your takeaway containers), and is dishwasher safe. In fact, it’s microwave-friendly too… just remove the Aluminum sleeve and put the Molabox in the microwave to quickly reheat the food you have inside. The boxes come in three fresh anodized colors, and the box’s reusable nature means you’re effectively offsetting the thousands of takeaway containers and disposable spoons and forks you’d use in your lifetime. Plus, each Molabox is made from recycled plastics and aluminum, so even owning a Molabox helps reduce environmental waste.

MolaBox: The Eco-Friendly Collapsible Lunchbox/Takeout Box

Designed to eliminate single-use takeout plastics, the MolaBox is a collapsible lunchbox made from recycled materials.

America alone created 15 million tons of plastic containers and packaging waste in 2015, and more than 100 million pieces of plastic utensils are also created every day. Keeping that in mind, about 10,000 MolaBox backers can help reduce 1 million plastic lunch boxes, plastic bags and plastic utensils every year.
