Quick Tips for a Waste-Free Lunchbox

Save close to $250 per child over the school year with these quick tips from Margaret Moses, RD!

  1. Use reusable containers and snack bags like Klip-It Lunch Cubes and dishwasher-safe LunchSkins.
  2. Buy yogurt, applesauce, nuts, chips, carrots, etc. in bulk instead of single serve packs.
  3. Choose PeopleTowels or make your own cute mini napkins from old t-shirts or sheets in place of paper towels or napkins.
  4. Most plastic baggies are NOT recyclable; consider wrapping sandwiches in aluminum foil, which is easily recyclable.
  5. Try non-glass reusable bottles for water and juice to avoid throw-away water bottles, juice boxes, and pouches.
