Start Packing!

September 02, 2014

This week, countless parents everywhere will be packing back-to-school lunches to the sound of their kids crying over summer's end. Here's something that won't make you cry (unless they are tears of joy): zero-waste, plastic-free lunches. Impossible? No, it's achievable in so many ways!

Let's look at a few:

Try a cotton bento bag in bright colors that are hand-patterned to carry your tri-bento box. Need something airtight for liquids like soup? We're super excited for the silicone lids on the new bento splash boxes. Pair it with the blue whale design bag.

Reusable lunch totes from Lunch Skins come with matching sandwich and snack bags that are easy to clean because they're dishwasher safe! To date, Lunch Skins estimate people using these products have saved over 12 million plastic baggies from landfills. You can join them.

Prefer a fair-trade cotton sack? We've got you covered with Eco-Ditty's lunch, sandwich, and snack bags. Not good at mixing and matching? Here's your once-and-done solution.

And don't forget to keep your food cold with the Lunch Skins ice mat; it's food safe because it's just distilled water inside recycled material! Freeze it and go! Need utensils? We've got you covered with large and small sporks to fit any bag. Last thing to pack? Cloth napkins! Oh yeah, what about the food?! You're on your own there. (But we've got some suggestions.)
