Put an eco spin on your lunch routine

 
This year, don’t just brown paper bag it every day. Put an eco-friendly spin on your lunch routine! A few plastic wrappers tossed a day—no big deal, right? But imagine how much we could save if we all didn’t use and throw away all that plastic for 180 days this school year.

Reusable containers are the key to eliminating your trash. Go back to basics and use a lunchbox instead of a paper or plastic bag.
 
Our three presh picks:
 
 
 
 
Boat and Tote Lunch Tote, $15, llbean.com
 
 
 Lunch Buddy, $28, fleurville.com
 
Reusing plastic bottles isn’t always safe, so snap up a lead-free steel one that’ll stay with ya all year. This carry-and-go water bottle’s great to tote around. Durable, recyclable, and toxin-free—what more could you ask for?
 

 
Stainless Steel Water Bottle 500 ml, $7, litterfreelunch.com

Other ways to make your lunch earth-friendly:
Do the fine-dining thing. Take cloth napkins and real silverware to the caf. Way better than using loads of paper and plastic ones.

Eat local foods. Hit up the farmer’s market or local section of your grocery store to get fruits and veggies that were grown nearby. You’ll support your neighbors and it takes less gas to transport food down the road (as opposed to ‘round the world).

Ditch the packaged snacks. Instead of buying, say, pudding cups, make your own at home and put it in Tupperware. Swap gummies for actual fruit and chop carrots into sticks (instead of buying baby ones).


Blog it out…Do you bring lunch to school? What are your fave ways to be good to the planet?
