A SLICE OF GREEN

About A Slice of Green


Products that help to make your life a little bit greener, one slice at a time.

In recent years consumers have become aware of the impact of the disposable culture we live in and want to try and live a more sustainable lifestyle. We designed A Slice of Green to offer a stylish range of reusable products that can help people work towards this. All of the products are functional and simple to use so are easy to adopt into everyday life.

All of our products are made in India and we work directly with producers rather than through agents or export houses. We have developed strong relationships with our producers, visiting their production sites around India (and seeing some wonderful sights too!)

Designed and developed by Green Pioneer.

A SLICE OF GREEN There are 23 products.

  • Lunch Boxes

    Lunch Boxes


    For Lunch . For Storage . For Life


    The A Slice of Green lunch boxes are ideal for taking food out and about - to work, to school or on picnics - avoiding the need to buy expensive, over-packaged take away food. They are made from high quality, food grade 201 stainless steel, which is non-toxic and will not retain or impart flavours. Each lunch box has folded, smooth edges and strong clips to keep the lid closed.

    The lunch boxes are made in South India. We’ve also named our lunch boxes after towns around India in reference to their design which is inspired by Indian tiffin tins! We visited our manufacturer in 2015 and 2018. They are compliant with ISO:9001:2008 quality management system standards and ISO:18001:2007 occupational health and safety management system standards.

    Tested free from BPA, phthalates and lead.

    Suitable for most foods, but because the lids have no plastic seal very wet foods may leak. Dishwasher safe.

    Each lunch box is supplied in a simple brown kraft box.

  • Leak Resistant Lunch Boxes

    Leak Resistant Lunch Boxes


    For Lunch . For Storage . For Life

    The A Slice of Green leak resistant lunch boxes are ideal for taking food out and about - to work, to school or on picnics - avoiding the need to buy expensive, over-packaged take away food. They are made from high quality, food grade 201 stainless steel, which is non-toxic and will not retain or impart flavours. Each lunch box has folded, smooth edges and strong clips to keep the lid closed.

    Each lunch box has a silicone seal inside the lid to help prevent leaks. The lunch boxes should be fine for sauces and dressings however they are not suitable for transporting liquids (a screw-top bottle or jar should be used for liquids). The seal in the lid is removable so it can be washed after use. To replace the seal simply line up the corners (flat side down), press one corner of the seal into the corner of the lid, and then work around the edges with thumbs before pressing the final corner into place. We have also included a spare seal inside each lunchbox in case one gets lost: more information can be found here.

    We do not recommend the leak resistant lunch boxes for use in the oven, even with the seal removed. Prolonged exposure to very hot temperatures can cause the metal to distort and then there could be issues with the lid fitting properly.

    The lunch boxes are made in North India. We’ve also named our lunch boxes after towns around India in reference to their design which is inspired by Indian tiffin tins! We visited our manufacturer in 2018 and they have previously passed an Asia Inspection Ethical Audit Report.

    Tested free from BPA, phthalates and lead. Dishwasher safe.

    Each lunch box is supplied in a simple brown kraft box.

    The containers are made in South India. We’ve also named our containers after towns around India in reference to their design which is inspired by Indian tiffin tins!

    Tableware


    For Home . For Camping . For Life

    The A Slice of Green tableware range is durable and practical - and a great alternative to using plastic tableware when at home or out camping or on picnics. Each piece is made from high quality, food grade stainless steel, which is non-toxic and will not retain or impart flavours.

    The cups come boxed as a set of four. Made in South India from 18/8 stainless steel. We visited our manufacturer in 2015 and 2018. They are compliant with ISO:9001:2008 quality management system standards and ISO:18001:2007 occupational health and safety management system standards. Tested free from BPA, phthalates and lead.

  • Produce Bags

    Produce Bags


    For Shopping . For Storing . For Life

    The A Slice of Green produce bags are made from GOTS certified organic cotton in India.

    The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibres and means the entire textile supply chain is independently certificated including both ecological and social criteria. The cotton is grown on non GM, small farms in South India where the dry climate helps the cotton to grow well. It is then woven in GOTS certified weaving units and sewn into bags by our manufacturer. For the mesh bags the fabric is woven to the actual size of the bag (as it cannot be cut easily) which also means there is no wastage.

    The bags each have a GOTS label and A Slice of Green branded label inside. The branded label includes the tare weight ie. the weight of the empty bag.

    Our manufacturer is a family business that makes the bags in their own sewing unit in Tamil Nadu, India. We visited the unit in 2018 and were impressed by the high standards - pictures below...
