Onyx Containers was conceived shortly after our daughter was born.
Like most new parents we became a lot more aware of the health
compromises we deal with when we cook, store and eat our food.
We've known plastic and food is an unhealthy combination for as

though the lids are plastic) but then they started breaking.
Apparently this wasn't just 'our thing' but actually happens to
almost everyone who drops glass from a height. We soon realized
that glass shards and barefoot babies are like, well, plastic and
food. We wanted alternatives to plastic. While searching for
non-plastic bottles, cups, plates, snack containers etc.
we discovered that anything of any quality is hard to find and over
We believe that everyone should be able to buy safe and
environmentally responsible products without breaking the bank. We
spent a great deal of time researching plastic alternatives and
found that the few choices out there are either low quality or
hugely marked up. The products that we carry are of the highest
quality, manufactured in responsible conditions and are very fairly
We use all of the products that we sell ourselves. We have found
that high quality food grade stainless steel is the best option for
fluid bottles, sealable containers, cups, bowls etc. for it's
durability, food safety and versatility ie. freezer to stove/oven.
We are currently working on some fantastic new products, and are
always looking for new and interesting ideas. Let us know if there
is something that you think should be made in stainless steel. If
we like your idea we'll build it and could be sending you samples
