Green your school lunch
No matter how many options you have in the school caf, it’s usually hard to make a food decision, let alone an eco-friendly one! Instead of ordering up some meatloaf (what’s in that, anyway?!), what they even put in it, check out the grilled cheese or another veg option.
Before you go ahead and grab a pile of napkins for no reason, simply take one. You can easily get up and get more if you need them. This helps take away the wasting of napkins, which you’d surely do if you took a handful.
If you decide to bring your lunch to school, kick the ham and cheese sandwich to the curb and create your own salad masterpiece. Don’t forget to bring the dressing on the side, or your salad will get super soggy.
Ditch the disposables
When bringing your “brown-bag” lunch to school, leave the brown bag at home. Go out and get a nice re-usable lunch bag. This way you don’t have to be wasteful and throw out a paper bag day after day.
