Abby’s Blog: Going Back to School? Go Back Green with Reusable Containers

Did you know that the average school-age child eating a disposable lunch generates 67 pounds of waste  in a school year. That equates to 18,760 pounds of lunch waste for just one average-size elementary school! There are many great products that reduce lunch waste and save money too. I have learned that if you switch to using reusable containers rather than traditional baggies and pre-packaged food, you can save about $250 per kid.  You should also make sure you are using containers that are free of Bisphenol A or BPA.
