The best way to reduce garbage is to not create it.
A zero-waste lunch (sometimes called a litter-less, smart, garbage-less, waste-free, no-garbage, or waste-not lunch) means that you have no packaging to throw away when you're done. All that's left is apple cores, banana peels, and other biodegradable extras that can be easily composted.
Our friends at ECOlunchbox did a study on lunch waste, and it shows that families are not only creating thousands of pieces of trash but also wasting hundreds of dollars! In a typical year you could save $450! “We know green lunches are healthy for people and the planet, but the results of our study strongly show that our pocketbooks are big winners, too,” says Sandra Harris, president and founder of ECOlunchbox. "No matter how you look at it, going waste-free at lunchtime is a big winner." Click on the infographic below to read about the trash you can divert from a landfill and the money you could save.
