Packing Waste-free Lunches

Share

Want to cut down on lunchtime waste?

It has been estimated that on average a school-age child using a disposable lunch generates 67 pounds of waste per school year. That equates to 18,760 pounds of lunch waste for just one average-size elementary school.

Please consider reducing the amount of lunchtime waste your family generates. Think about what you can do to cut down on waste. Here are a few suggestions for getting started.
  • Pack a cloth napkin instead of a paper napkin.
  • Pack stainless-steel utensils instead of using disposable plastics.
  • Pack a reusable drink container instead of disposable juice boxes, juice pouches, cans, and plastic bottles.
  • Pack lunch items in reusable containers. Laptop Lunches work well because they allow for an appealing horizontal presentation. Avoid using plastic wraps, plastic bags, wax-paper bags, and aluminum foil.
  • Avoid purchasing pre-packaged items. Buy foods in larger containers and leave them at home for recycling.
  • Pack lunches in a lunch box or backpack instead of relying on paper or plastic bags.
Tell your friends, or better yet, start a waste-free lunch program at your school! Check out www.wastefreelunches.org for information on how to get started.
