A Waste-Free Lunch has:
  • A reusable lunch box.
  • Reusable food containers (cloth, plastic, metal)
  • Reusable drink containers (plastic, metal)
  • A cloth napkin
  • Reusable utensils (metal, hard plastic, bamboo)

More ideas:
  • Purchase your snacks in bulk size and repack into individual reusable containers.  (There is less packaging per item that way).
  • Pack fresh fruit since it doesn't require any additional packaging.
  • Have your child bring home what they don’t eat; don’t over pack lunches.
  • Compost cores, peels and crusts.
