I think it great that schools are switching to a “no waste” policy.  It not only teaches our kids about helping the planet, it reduces a lot of trash produced by schools.  If your child’s school doesn’t have a “no waste” policy then these eco-friendly lunch container ideas are still great because it cuts down on the cost of buying plastic bags and another throwaway item.


Depending on which reusable lunch containers you buy it can get costly.  However, it is an investment that can last for a very long time.  Your child will be able to carry it throughout their stint in school. Time magazine did an article on why it is important to make this type of investment.  


We’ve been trying to reduce our waste and carrying these eco-friendly lunch containers is a great start!  Though it is a small step, I’m on my way to leaving a non-toxic life.
