Can I just start this post with one confession? In a few weeks’ time, it will be Christmas, and I still have yet to do my holiday shopping! Normally, this would cause me to panic. But because the perks of blogging ushered me to the very thing that will answer this very common (but seasonal) mommy dilemma, I am able to gather my composure and know that I am going to survive.
When we were invited to the launch of Lock & Lock’s Flagship Store in Lucky Chinatown Mall, we were welcomed by these beautifully boxed Christmas sets perfect for the season. All I practically have to do is write the recipients’ names on the gift boxes themselves. Can Christmas gift shopping be more convenient?
If you are like me, your first encounter with Lock & Lock where via these Sports Water Bottles. We actually have two of different sizes that my son has been using for years now. I love how they have been very reliable in the no spillage department! When you have a kiddo like I do, you know so well how important that is. Or else, mess will be all over the place and that is something I am not exactly fond of.
Lock & Lock are pretty well known for these tumblers and food keepers. What I seriously love about Lock and Lock is it is nothing like your ordinary plastic container. Lock & Lock may be very affordable, all right. But it does not follow that they are not durable. Their plastic containers being BISFREE in themselves is something homemakers like me should really look into.
What does Lock & Lock products being BISFREE translate to, anyway? Allow me to answer this through Wikipedia’s definition of BISPHENOL A:
Bisphenol A (BPA) is an organic compound with the chemical formula (CH3)2C(C6H4OH)2.
BPA exhibits hormone-like properties that raise concern about its suitability in consumer products and food containers. Since 2008, several governments have questioned its safety, which prompted some retailers to withdraw polycarbonate products. A 2010 report from the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warned of possible hazards to fetuses, infants, and young children. In September 2010, Canada became the first country to declare BPA a toxic substance. The European Union, Canada, and recently the United States have banned BPA use in baby bottles.
And because I’m a mom who does not just take anyone’s word for anything, I had to do my own research on what makes Lock and Lock special.
If we really love to do our share in preserving our environment, then we will lessen our usage of wraps and foils and use food keepers like Lock & Lock instead. Over the years, I have gradually replaced aluminum cookwares to stainless steel ones. Aluminum cookwares are said to cause Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s. Whether true or not, I am not willing to take the risk. Just like replacing them, I am also gradually switching my food keepers to Lock and Lock. 🙂
Alongside Lock & Lock launching their flagship store in Lucky Chinatown and their introduction of their Christmas gift sets, they also came up with this line specifically designed for travelers, which is aptly branded — Travel Zone. While some people would go checking out the pricier brand names for their traveling essentials, we might as well consider Travel Zone.
Travel Zone Travel Essentials
Travel Zone Luggage Protector.
These stacks of storage solution will fit perfectly as it adds color to my son’s room. With Lock & Lock’s warranty, I’m sure these will last us a lifetime.
We totally recommend you guys to check out Lock and Lock flagship stores when you do your Christmas shopping and spare yourself the headache crowded malls can cause. Lock and Lock currently have seven flagship stores. Three of which that I remember are located in Shangri-la Mall, Eastwood and Lucky Chinatown. Lock and Lock will soon to open another flagship store South of the metro. Watch out for my post about it in a few weeks. 🙂
