Waste-Free Lunches

Foster sustainable, lifelong habits with your children.

Pack Waste-free lunches. Greener choices every day will lead to a brighter and better future.

It has been estimated that on average, a school-age child using a disposable lunch generates 67 lbs. of waste per school year.  That equates to 18,760 lbs. of lunch waste for just one, average-size elementary school!  Or nationally, 3.5 billion pounds of lunch garbage a year!
