Like any busy Mom, it is important for me to have convenience when packing my kids’ lunches as a consequence packaged foods and plastic bags have been my go-to without considering the environmental impact.
It was actually one of my kids that started addressing the school lunch plastic issue that leads me to discover not only that it is actually quite easy to adopt eco-friendly products but that since doing this I have also saved a lot of money.
When purchasing any of the below make sure you also get some waterproof name tag stickers so the products come home and can be used over and over.
Below are my favourite two discoveries….
Eco-Friendly Reusable Drink and Juice Box Containers
These not only save me money but I am able to put in fruit juice from home which reduces the amount of sugar my kids get through the day.
I thought these were going to be too good to be true but they are actually leak proof, dishwasher proof and good for the environment as not only reusable but also 100% recyclable and made from 90% recycled materials.
Reusable Sandwich & Snack Bags
Available online in lots of cute styles and colours reusable snack and sandwich bags are easy to use, easy to wash and long-lasting. Having these on board I have been saving money and buying in bulk as opposed to buying mini-packs of chips, nuts or cookies.
So you will see as I did packing a healthy waste-free lunch doesn’t need to be hard work. Y
