Q: How to save 67 lbs of trash a year?
A: Send you child to school with a reusable lunch kit!
•A child generates about 67 lbs of lunchtime trash/school year
•By using a reusable lunch sack and other storage items, a parent can save over $200/year not only in disposable bags but also by purchasing larger quantities of food and only packing what your child will eat
•Packaging accounts for nearly 1/3 of all household waste
Unfortunately my 13 year old son will no longer take a lunch box to school. I guess it’s not cool? He will only take a brown bag, I don’t want to him to uncool, but those bags and baggies add up!
Does your son or daughter refuse to take a lunch box to school? At what age did that start?
