Plastic-Free and Reusable Lunch Solutions

September 10, 2015

Let's talk about our lunch habits. Everywhere you'll read articles about what you're putting into your body. But what about what you're putting your lunch into? Plastics leach chemicals into your food, and single-use bags pile up in countless landfills because most of us don't want to take a few extra steps to change our habits. We're here to tell you that with just a few extra minutes of planning, you can save both the earth and your body from the harmful things being put into them. It just takes some thinking ahead to buy the reusable containers you need, have them on hand, and reach for them the next time you pack a to-go meal. It's that easy. Now why don't more people do it? Surely we can do better.

Get a head start by checking out our sustainable lunch options. And, better yet, put together a sustainable lunch kit as a gift for your family, a coworker, or someone else you know!
