Did you know that a disposable lunch creates between 4–8 ounces of garbage everyday? That adds up to as much as 100 pounds per year! (The weight of a child…..) Two million plastic beverage bottles are used in the U.S. every 5 minutes. It's time to have less waste in our lunches, and it's easy. 

Join the Waste Free Lunch movement!

Why? In this Prezi, students tell you why

Packing a Waste-Free Lunch for school and work helps us to:
  • eat healthily. Packaged food usually has more salt, sugar, oil and white flour than recommended by the Canada Food Guide.
  • prevent food wastage
  • lower food expenses
  • send less waste to landfill (cost of waste disposal, and plastic never rots)
  • reduce pollution (packaging requires factories)
  • reduce recycling (recycling requires factories)
  • reduce energy and resource wasting (trees for paper, oil for plastic, coal for electricity)
  • keep our custodians happy
  • teach our kids that they have  influence
Waste Full Lunches have garbage and unhealthy food.

A healthy, waste free lunch!
