According to the wastefreelunches.org the average kid produces 67 pounds of waste from their lunch each year. At a midsized elementary school - that translates to 15-20 tons of garbage each year.
How to Pack a Zero Waste Lunch
- Make a sandwich or pack leftovers into a reusable container
- Send a reusable fork / spoon
- Include a cloth napkin
- Pack a reusable water bottle
- Transport it all in a reusable lunch box
I hope you take the challenge and strive to pack zero-waste lunches this year!
